If you’ve at all experienced American pop culture, then you have most likely heard of or seen any of the four Scary Movies.
Writers of the ‘Scary Movie’ movies, Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer will be writing a new parody, mostly based off ‘The Hunger Games,’ called The Starving Games. Not only will ‘The Hunger Games’ be spoofed, but also ‘The Avengers’, ‘Sherlock Holmes’, and the final Harry Potter movie.
But here’s a question to ask yourself: is this major, big screen parody taking things too far? As fans of ‘The Hunger Games’, we understand that the books show us how desensatized to violence our society is and can become. Will a spoof of this size further prove this? Is something like this, making fun of something as serious as children being forced to kill each other, completely inappropriate? Or is this just two screenwriters just trying to make money off of a giant franchise?
To me, it’s the latter. There are plenty of Hunger Games parodies out there (although on a much smaller scale), made mostly by fans of the books or movie.
But what do you think? Are you looking forward to ‘The Starving Games’, or does it worry you?
