America has gone mad over the second installment of Hunger Games – Catching Fire.
Starting Thursday, theaters across the U.S. are running a gazillion shows for Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
I watched the first episode of Hunger Games and wasn’t impressed.
But then I’m among the rare few that can distinguish class from crass!
Why the Madness
Frankly, I don’t understand the hysteria behind Hunger Games (although I’m a big fan of Jennifer Lawrence, the heroine of the two Hunger Games movies).
I suppose one must be young, White, born in America and have an IQ below 75 to enjoy a movie where the central theme of the first episode was children killing other children in a vicious fight to death.
The audience in the hall where I’m writing this blog post, waiting for Hunger Games: Catching Fire to start, is mostly White, 75% below 25 years.
I’m guesstimating 65% of the people in the hall belong to the distaff sex.
There’s still another 30 minutes for the movie to start and the hall is already 85% full. And this is just one of the 11 halls where Hunger Games: Catching Fire is playing tonight.
SI will have the review of Hunger Games: Catching Fire later tonight.
