Doug Benson on The Hunger Games vs 21 Jump Street
March 30, 2012 6 Comments
I want to finally finish The Hunger Games book before seeing the movie, but stand-up comedian Doug Benson suggests that I shouldn’t be in such a rush. A frequent segment on his Doug Loves Movies podcast is “Watch This Not That.” This week’s installment:
The number one movie in the country is The Hunger Games, the least exciting movie about children trying to kill each other that I have ever seen. The number two movie is 21 Jump Street, the funniest adaptation of a TV show that wasn’t funny that I have ever seen. So watch Jump Street not Hunger Games.
This has been “Watch This Not That.”
I like Doug, but still plan on watching both, although my attempt to avoid the excess of Hunger Games buzz is obviously starting to fail.
