This Week: Kevin breathes a death rattle of relief as the Hunger Games finally comes to an end after dragging out the end of its once-promising franchise. He also reviews the other new films, including Secret in Their Eyes, The Night Before, Spotlight and The Hallow. But first, he talks about news items, including Jesse Eisenberg ripping off Shia LaBeouf’s plagiarized content, Rhonda Rousey hopefully no longer being courted by action movies, and Mystery-Science Theater 3000 making a return. Later in the show, he answers a listener’s voicemail about Star Wars and offers some box office insight and home cinema recommendations.
