The Maze Runner

Maze Runner Movie Poster WCKD is good

And so is The Maze Runner.

The Maze Runner sprinted through the box office this weekend, almost breaking even on its budget by earning $32 million from the United States alone and solidifying its sequel to release in September of next year. Great for the series: it has established itself as one of those never-ending young adult franchises where it’s up to teens to overthrow a…

Ranking summer 2014 movies

I’ve seen 9 movies this past summer, from Fault in Our Stars to X-Men to 22 Jump Street. See how I ranked them from worst to best!

What The Purge: Anarchy has going for it is ambition. Founded on a brilliant premise (almost all crime is legal for 12 hours a year) and backed up with cool, social commentary-lite ideas (an auction-like arena where the wealthy pay to hunt the poor, for instance), Anarchy (as well as the original Purge film) think big, yet execute small. Abandoning almost all horror film…
