Quote of the day:
“I don't write about adolescence. I write about war. For adolescents.” Suzanne Collins.

In today’s episode, I am reviewing the Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, both the book and movie that was adapted from it. As a video producer and writer, I respect that movies and TV shows are different mediums for storytelling. No screen adaption of a book will ever be 100% like the novel, but that doesn't mean it can't work.
