Watching People Watch The Hunger Games

I’ve been too busy with work and fam­i­ly and real life to dis­con­nect but we were giv­en a night off by the grand­par­ents and went and saw The Hunger Games. If we assume that some peo­ple watch­ing the movie had not read the book, then watch­ing them watch ‘The Hunger Games’ was some­thing like being in a real-live ver­sion of The Hunger Games them­selves. It’s appe­tiz­ing­ly meta but I don’t have the time to metacog­nate at lesiure.
