I love how subversive the Hunger Games are, but is anyone else sick of people saying "Oh there's no reason Mockingjay needed to be two movies" over and over?

SPOILERS:
Motherfucker, the book is exactly the same as the previous two. There's the buildup to the games, then the actual event. It just happens that the final hunger games is an actual war in the capital. Katniss literally says as much in the book. For the biggest and baddest round of the games we see, of course movie no. 1 is all build up so movie no. 2 can be all payoff (if that works, I also naively believed Pirates of the Caribbean no. 2 and 3 could've worked while they were being released).

Don't get me wrong, I know that the economics of releasing a two-part finale to a 'trilogy' is a profit-driven move as much as anything, I'm just arguing it could make a lot of sense.

My friend Denis St. John is finally publishing his first complete graphic novel of Amelia! It's a piece of Weird Fiction in the vein of "Carnival of Souls" and Lovecraftian body horror and a little cheesecake for dessert. Check it out!

This is a really great article. Totally worth the read, and looks into the huge space between "Do what you love" and "Don't do what you hate" and what we miss.
Do what you love... but make sure it loves you back.
I really appreciate +Rachel Nabors point about having multiple "loves".  I love comics, I love graphic design, I love HTML/CSS, I love board game design, and they ALL keep me afloat in different ways. The tricky part is focusing on the things that love you back.

I finally saw this movie, and quite liked it. However, while they're the guardians of the farthest reaches of the galaxy, some of the plot treads remarkably familiar ground...
