List: Top 3 YA Movie Scenes

This week on the InSession Film Podcast, we discussed the final installment of The Hunger Games franchise in Mockingjay Part 2, which is of course one of the best franchise in the YA movie genre. The young adult genre isn’t something that always speaks to us, but it still has it’s fair share of great films and great scenes within those films. The Hunger Games, Harry Potter and even The Princess Bride make the genre more respectable than the stereotypes you normally hear about YA films, and we had fun discussing our favorite scenes from within the genre.

That being said, what Top 3 YA movie scenes would make your list? Here are the one’s that made ours:

*Keep in mind we have different criteria for our lists as well


1) Three Finger Salute – The Hunger Games / Catching Fire
2) Greg’s Final Film – Me & Earl & The Dying Girl
