Society is going to force me to watch the Hunger Games and I don’t like it


I really wasn’t planning on seeing the Hunger Games and sure as shit wasn’t going to read it, but I feel like I don’t have a choice.  I despise the whole sci-fi/fantasy/nerd genre.  I never read or saw Harry Potter.  Never read and fell asleep in the theater during one of the Lord of The Rings movies.  I saw one of the Twilight movies with an ex-girlfriend and it was literally the WORST movie I have ever seen.  So I was ready to completely ignore the Hunger Games and not think twice about it because I was sure I would hate it.  But there is one thing I hate more than sci-fi/fantasy and it’s being the only one not doing something.  I was at an event on Sunday and people were like making jokes about chicks with side-braids and I was like “ummm…wtf is so funny about that?” I got a look of confusion from literally everyone in the group like I was some kind of leper because I hadn’t seen the Hunger Games.  It’s like the entire world has this inside joke that I am excluded from.  Well I am for sure NOT going to let that continue.  Society is dragging me kicking and screaming to a movie that I know will suck.  And since everyone and their mother saw it over the weekend I am probably going to have to watch it by myself.  So “one for the Hunger Games” is probably the most embarrassing thing I will say today…I hope.


PS: I feel like chicks are really leading the charge on this movie and I don’t get it at all.  Like what is so appealing to girls about this movie?  Futuristic, post apacolyptic, olympics where kids are drafted to murder each other? I am told there is no love story.  Effing broads.  They just can’t figure out what they like unless it’s what everyone else likes.  But…I gotta play by their rules, so I gotta see the Hunger Games.  If I had my choice of a chick movie to see in the theaters this month it would be Titanic in 3D.  Kate Winslet popping off the screen sounds pretty awesome.

    The reason girls like it is because the main character is a girl. I hated this movie and thought the whole “children in combat” theme was a NEW level of depravity for Hollywood to make money!!!!! This could desensitize people and influence behavior.
