Warning: This episode contains major spoilers of the 'Insurgent' movie as well as several Allegiant spoilers. We advise you watch 'Insurgent' and read Allegiant before listening. The ENTIRE EPISODE is devoted to the latest Divergent movie! It's been a week since 'Insurgent' hit theaters and we've got a lot to say about it! We sit down and talk about the book to movie differences and how they either made the story better or worse.

Discussed in this episode...

  • Did we like the movie? One of us says yes, another says no, and someone's not so sure.
  • We talk about the changes--and yes, the speshul box.
  • Was this movie more violent than the first one, and maybe even the book?
  • Where does this movie leave us for parts one and two of the 'Allegiant' movies?

Hosts: Addie (writer at 7thPage.com), Lucy (writer at 5thWave.net), and Saul (writer at 7thPage.com).

Book-to-film adaptations. You either love them, or you hate them. You’ve got masterpieces like ‘Catching Fire’, and then you’ve got headaches like ‘The Mortal Instruments’. In this episode, we take time to share our thoughts on book-to-film adaptations. What makes a good adaptation? What makes a bad one? We share a few experiences concerning our favorite adaptations and learn that getting into a premiere screening is harder than you think… and that Saul says “adaptions” over “adaptations.”

Also discussed in this episode…

  • The Last Star, the title of the third 5th Wave book was leaked! What/who is the Last Star?
  • Veronica Roth shares her review of ‘Insurgent’ Everyone is worried about “the box.”

Hosts: Addie (writer at 7thPage.com), Ariana (manager of @T5W_fans), Lucy (writer at 5thWave.net), and Saul (writer at 7thPage.com).

Note: We had a sound error while recording. Because of this, there’s a noticeable echo behind some of the voices. We’ll be sure to correct this next time! Also, there are (super) minor spoilers for Allegiant and The Infinite Sea.
