The Glenn Butler Podcast Hour Spectacular kicks off when the now-titular Glenn Butler (Wednesday Walk, Super Extreme Vault)
welcomes his brother Scott to the land of podcasts and welcomes
listeners to a deep dive into the Hunger Games series. They discuss the
hugely successful film franchise along the following criteria: 1. Did
Glenn understand the story despite never reading any of the books, or
did the movies leave out too many details in favor of flash and
explosions? 2. Was Scott satisfied that the books and the movies are
telling the same story, or was it garbled beyond recognition in the
transition from novel to screenplay? Other topics covered include the
construction of competing mythologies, the mechanisms of soft vs. hard
population control, Capitol Couture, personal agency, a Love Triangle of
Doom, depictions of trauma, whether it’s possible to depict war without
ennobling it, and pairs of actors that Glenn can’t tell apart.
A BLANKET SPOILER WARNING for the new movie applies
to the last section. Each section has spoilers for the movie & book
being covered as well as the previous entries.
