It’s been 9 years since we visited the capital city of Panem, created by Suzanne Collins. In The Hunger Games, every year, there is a reaping (choosing of contestants) and The Hunger Games. The Hunger Games is a fight-to-the-death battle between the randomly chosen contestants of various districts. It’s a brutal way for the government to control the districts.
But The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes is different. We’re not at the 75th annual Hunger Games. We’re near the beginning, taking place during the 10th Hunger Games. The Hunger Games: The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes is a prequel to what has already come.
Once you get past the trainwreck that the first Hunger Games movie was, you’re in for a treat. Catching Fire brought the Suzanne Collins story to life. Follow that up with the thrilling Mockingjay Part 1, you have to be unsure if they can continue the trend of improving upon The Hunger Games.
Fret no more, we discovered the truth when Lions Gate Entertainment released The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 this past weekend. They did it, they really did.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 was a perfect follow-up and close to the previous films in this series. Not only did it bring the story to an end, it continued with the action and suspense the books intended there to be.

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve heard the ravings of the fans of Suzanne Collins fiction series The Hunger Games. Set in a future dystopia, Katniss Everdeen rises to save her sister, Primrose Everdeen, from having to become a tribute in the annual Hunger Games.
Katniss and Peeta’s defiance in The Hunger Games and the Quarter Quell greatly angered The Capitol. Their actions in the first two books and movies set us up for a thrilling third entry in The Hunger Games movie series.
The story creates a perfect backdrop to glean leadership lessons from. That’s why I was excited to get a chance to partake in viewing The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 recently. It allowed me to see leadership lessons in a new light and share them with you.
I hope you’re ready for more pop-culture leadership lessons. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 was filled with leadership lessons and quotes. Read more...
