MINI-REVIEW: The Starving Games

The Starving Games

Maiara Walsh, Brant Daughtry


November 8, 2013 (VOD/LIMITED)

Jason Friedberg, Aaron Seltzer

Ketchup Entertainment

1 hour 26 minutes



Well people, if you didn't know that Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer were the most untalented men in Hollywood by now, then "The Starving Games" is the latest nail in their coffin of "talent."  For those who may not know, Friedberg and Seltzer are responsible for such films as the appropriately titled "Disaster Movie," "Meet The Spartans," and "Vampires Suck" most recently.  If these men think that having pop culture references, slapstick humor, and revolting imagery can be considered as "good comedy," then they should definitely stop making movies now.  "The Starving Games," obviously a parody of "The Hunger Games," has exactly what you would expect from a Friedberg/Seltzer project, and it is obviously a terrible movie.  I personally find it amazing that these men still are able to get money from studios in Hollywood to keep making this garbage.  Are studio executives so daft and money-hungry that they think that making these disgraces to the parody genre will get them some quick cash?  Well if that is the case, then clearly someone is getting the message about these films and their non-profibility when the distributor of a movie is known as "Ketchup Entertainment."  "The Starving Games" is just another example at how low the bar has been set in the movie world, and if these movies continue to be made, then god help us all.

Hello viewers of this blog,

Due to recent comments of spam and profanity present from obnoxious kids who think they are the funniest people in the world, I would like to request that the comments posted here are in good taste, meaning that they have no Anti-Semitic remarks, profanity, sexual innuendo, or any insults to myself. You can criticize the review and give pointers on how to make them better, but how about we be adults about this. Ok? Thank you, and have a nice day.
