“It’s time we fight back."

The Film Board Gathers! This month we take on the latest in the Divergent series, Insurgent! This time around, Tris Prior is battling her nemeses internal and external at the hand of director Robert Schwentke and writers Brian Duffield, Akiva Goldsman, and Mark Bomback. How’d it hold up, you ask? Did Mekhi Phifer reprise his stand out performance as Mekhi Phifer? Did Miles Teller play any rhythm instrument at all? Did Theo James brood? We answer all these questions, and address the most pressing issue of all: #InsurgentBedHead. All this in the capable hands of Andy Nelson, Pete Wright, Steve Sarmento, and new addition to the gang of thugs, Justin Jaeger makes his debut! So join us, listen in, embrace the spoils, and only then should you make the decision to see this film.
