While looking at all things Sherlock, the writers at Larkable stumbled upon this, The Starving Games and it just looks too…well, you’ll see.
As American gossip columnist Elsa Maxwell once said, “Laugh at yourself before anyone else can.” With that in mind, take this Scary Movie/Epic Movie/Not Another Teen Movie type film with a grain of salt.
The blog Sherlock Peoria brought this movie to light, otherwise it would have gone unnoticed for a few more weeks. We at Larkable do enjoy the lighthearted side of fandom-mania. We’ve enjoyed Dorkness Rising, Unicorn City, and have Wizard People, Dear Readers memorized by heart, so The Starving Games probably would have made it to our queue without much protest.
If you don’t have Wizard People, Dear Reader memorized by heart and you enjoy what you see on Larkable, we suggest you YouTube that right now.
The Starving Games doesn’t look terrible. Well, it does, but we–like the writers at Sherlock Peoria, apparently–don’t have a problem with terrible movies. It combines all the fandom movies into one place along with a lot of pop culture references, much like all the other parody movies out there. All those parody movies just get worse and worse. What kind of standards do you actually expect going into these things?
We at Larkable haven’t actually watched this yet, so we might end up regretting sharing this before checking it out ourselves. But probably not.
To make mistakes is human; to stumble is commonplace; to be able to laugh at yourself is maturity. – William Arthur Ward Quotes
Oh, and in case you haven’t seen Dorkness Rising: The Gamers: Dorkness Rising on YouTube.
