The Hunger Games

In our fourth installment, we discuss what makes Jennifer Lawrence so perfect, why The Hunger Games far surpasses the Divergent series (see first comment), and how the series makes a love triangle feminist (see first comment). If you’re sensing a theme, you might be on to something.

Podcast Episode Four: The children of Panem are forced into an arena where they fight to the death, and the public is forced to watch. Through this display of violence and power, called The Hunger Games, the Capitol rules its citizens. We discuss how the films represent spectacle, war, trauma, and power. Want to know which scenes were our favorites, or why it matters that the style of violence evolves across the three films? Come listen!
