A segment where Kevin Smith goes on and on about a subject he seemingly takes way too seriously that no one else likely cares about or has given any consideration.
Today’s Issue: The Hunger Games Trilogy
The Hunger Games is an odd trilogy to me. When I read the first novel, The Hunger Games, I was impressed. Sure the concept had been done before in many forms, but ultimately it was well written for a YA book, which is refreshing, and had all the right bits and pieces to form a cohesive plot. Then I read Catching Fire which seemed to have a lot of the same enjoyable action from the first book but at the expense of introducing some way too convenient plot wrangling to do so. Then came the final installment, Mockingjay. Mockingjay did things that seemed so backward to how one would expect its protagonists to act at this point that I was just baffled. Many would say that this represents growth, or a hardening of the characters but I disagree as I lay out below.
As usual, SPOILERS AHEAD dear reader!
