FAIR ‘GAMES’ | For this Scorncast tribute (teehee!) to THE HUNGER GAMES, Jasper and co-host Ghostface Millah return to the bibliophobe/fanboy dynamic they introduced the first time they discussed a blockbuster movie culled from a bestselling novel. Ghostface totally hearts Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games book series, but Jasper ain’t got time for this readin’ shit, which enables the guys to complementarily gauge the film’s successes as both a fan-pleasing adaptation (not bad) and its own cinematic entity (pretty good). Plus: There’s a call for more graphic child-on-child violence, Ghostface gets steamed about half-assed bird symbology, and Jasper learns how crackerjack cake-decoration skills can help you survive a perilous situation.
