"In The Hunger Games, I don't even care if all of these boys get shirtless or not because I can tell that they're not even that built, so at that point I'm just like whatever."
If the Twilight franchise taught us only one thing, it's that vampires that sparkle in daylight instead of bursting into flames are the worst kind of vampires. If it taught us a second thing, it's that the only thing that matters in a young woman's life are the men she surrounds herself with. Obviously that last lesson is one that clearly applies to The Hunger Games.
Sure, you could appreciate the film's weird, dystopic future that's a bit like ancient Rome on the verge of political collapse. Or you could appreciate that Katniss Everdeen is a strong, independent woman anchoring a blockbuster franchise. But why would you do either of those things when you could appreciate the boys that populate the world of Panem?
That's the question the Onion asks in its sophisticated video review of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which we're now convinced is really the only critical assessment of the film that matters.
