‘The Hunger Games’ Honest Trailer Keeps It Real
If you’re sitting around biting your nails and debating whether or not to buy ‘The Hunger Games‘ on Blu-ray, the Screen Junkies team are here to provide you with a startling bit of honesty and a reminder that sometimes the book is just better.
Inviting you to “relive the gritty brutality of the hit book as a watered down, PG-13 tween movie,” (oh snap!) this video highlights all the movie’s shortcomings, like the fact that the residents of The Capitol look like “second-rate Lady Gagas.” It also asks the burning question, if they have the technology to conjure up fire and “monster dogs,” why haven’t they figured out how to make food for the poor?
Still, they’re not going to argue the point that Gale is totally hot (in fact, they do just the opposite in pretty graphic detail), so that probably makes it kind of worth it.
