HypeCast: Mockingjay Part 2, Brooklyn, and Spotlight

        Hello, and welcome back to the HypeCast, a film-centric podcast hosted by Collin Sherwood Elwyn and Tyler Mitchell. In today's episode, we officially turn our weapons to the Capitol, and talk about the final installment in the Hunger Games saga, Mockingjay Part 2. First, however, we discuss a pair of Oscar hopefuls that are only now trickling their way out of New York and Los Angeles. First up is Brooklyn, a period piece about a young Irish immigrant whose attempts to find love in the Big Apple failed to move the needle for Tyler. Collin had a much better time checking out Spotlight, the investigative journalism drama from the director of The Cobbler. Both films have a real shot at Best Picture nominations, but you know what doesn't? That's right, the sloppy, kinda-boring, largely disheartening Mockingjay Part 2. It's all right kids, you can just save your money for Star Wars... oh wait, you already did. The episode comes to include Collin throwing massive shade on the career of one Brian d'Arcy James (who really does look like Will Forte), and Tyler incredulously wondering about Michael Keeton's improbable career resurgence. Warning: a few naughty words are contained within. Continue at your own risk. Here We Go!
