the starving games

The guys that brought you Meet the Spartans and Vampires Suck are at it again. This time Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer are taking on The Hunger Games with their own parody version, The Starving Games. Much like their other films, this one doesn’t just stop at parodying The Hunger Games, they also take shots at The Avengers, Sherlock Holmes, Harry Potter and many, many other films.

I’ve seen all their movies, but have yet to actually spend money and see one in the theater. Usually I catch these type of parody films on a lazy Sunday afternoon while I am trying to procrastinate or get out of doing yard work. The films make tons of money though, the under 20 crowd really loves these films.

Take a look and let us know in the comments section if you’ll be seeing this in the theater or waiting for it to hit cable.

It was bound to happen. Any movie as big as The Hunger Games is going to get it’s fair share of fan films, parody clips, and if lucky, it’s “Scarey Movie” treatment. Jason Friedberg and Aaron Seltzer, the slapstick geniuses behind Scarey Movie, Date Movie,Epic Movie, Meet the Spartans, Disaster Movie, and Vampires Suck are turning their attention to The Starving Games.

The Hunger Games parody will take center stage in the story line, but don’t be suprised when other recent big screen hits like The Avengers, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part II, Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, make an appearance, it’s all part of the “Scary Movie” experience.  

What are your thoughts on these parody movies. This NerdBastard has seen them all, but only after the movies hit cable channels. Even with my love of The Hunger Games I can see a lot of fertile ground for parody.

I wonder if Seneca Crane’s rug matches the chin? Did I say that right?
