It’s not as if we weren’t expecting it, how could Screen Junkies resist such low hanging fruit? The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 was just begging for it and Honest Trailers gives it the shot to the knee that the franchise deserved for splitting up that last book. The shortest book in the series. So grab your favorite snack and weapon and hit the play button.
They make a lot of good points…

What did you think, were they right? Well we know they were, even if we don’t want to admit it to ourselves. I love Jennifer Lawrence as much as the next Hunger Games/ Silver Linings Playbook fan and even she couldn’t make this movie work. Even while sitting in the theater watching Mockingjay for the first time I found my mind wandering, giggling to myself as Katniss does a tribute to Ferris Bueller’s Day Off saying:
Katniss: President Snow… President Snow… President Snow…
Peeta: Um, he’s sick. My best friend’s sister’s boyfriend’s brother’s girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who’s going with the girl who saw President Snow pass out at 131 Flavors last night. I guess it’s pretty serious.
Katniss: Thank you, Peeta.
Peeta: No problem whatsoever.
I imagine that once the last movie is out, someone will make a cut splicing Parts 1 & 2 together into the movie they should have been in the first place.
