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.
