Pop culture obsessives writing for the pop culture obsessed.

It’s been a long road for Katniss Everdeen, who shot her arrows through two Hunger Games events and started a rebellion against the dictatorship in the first four films of the Hunger Games franchise. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 2 finds her, once again, in a Hunger Games-style setting, her path full of obstacles trying to kill her as she makes her way through the Capitol to a final confrontation with Donald Sutherland’s President Snow. In between shots of fire, water, what looks like sludge, and the floor all trying to kill Katniss, we glimpse Philip Seymour Hoffman in his final film role—he died during shooting, with two scenes rewritten to explain his absence.

The Hunger Games saga comes to an end November 20.
