BSD Half-Show 1: ‘The Hunger Games’

Trying something new, the Blast Shields Down Film Review Society conducts an impromptu spoiler-free half episode on The Hunger Games. Not content to merely see each other at recordings, the Blasters went as a group to see Katniss and Kompany kill each other for glorious benefit future society and, amazingly, manage not to descend into our own bloodbath afterward.

Duncan read the books, Hubie and I have not, and Dajuan couldn’t make it and was sorely missed. We discuss:

  • Why The Hunger Games is destined to be the next major franchise (in spite of quality).
  • Whether Jennifer Lawrence works as a sixteen-year-old or not.
  • Shaky-cams.
  • The surprising lack of hunger or suspense — but mostly hunger — in The Hunger Games.

But, that’s not all! Hubie briefly lights on Being Human (UK), and we give a brief yea or nay to John Carter.

WARNING: Blast Shields Down film reviews are full of terrifying language and opinions that have not been obscured with cheap camera effects. Listener discretion is advised.

So, what do you think? Should we continue this for the summer movie season? And what about a name? BSD Escape Pod Edition? BSD Captain’s Yacht? BSD [something else because you're more creative than us]? Let us know in the comments below.
