Even though obviously the Hunger Games movies are very successful, they still get far more derision than other action movies primarily because the audience is over 50% female and because the lead is played by a young woman.

Similar but much, much worse action movies get far less disapprobation.

Is it misogyny?

Fuck yes it is.

(By the way, Catching Fire was one of the best movies I saw last year. It was the apotheosis of what an action movie should be.)
