Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile: Film Review

Many films have been made about notorious American serial killer Ted Bundy, who confessed to killing 30 women across several states in the 1970s (although it is expected to be many more) and so Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile goes for a fresh perspective – that of his longtime girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer, based on her book.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure – Film Review

I liked the first two Maze Runner books and their film adaptations but the third instalment, which was delayed due to Dylan O’Brien‘s onset accident, kinda snuck up on me. I had forgotten about it, couldn’t really remember what happened previously, and didn’t have time to read the book. Despite this, I actually enjoyed it a lot.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

When I heard there was going to be another Pirates of the Caribbean movie, I couldn’t help but groan because I felt the franchise was done – as much as I loved the first two, the last two (especially the fourth) weren’t so good and I expected this, also known as Salazar’s Revenge, to be SO bad, so imagine how pleasantly surprised I was to discover that is a welcome return to form for the franchise.

I had high hopes for The Scorch Trials, the second film in The Maze Runner trilogy. The trailer looked good, and it appeared more ambitious in scale and like a proper action film. This is definitely the case and it is an improvement on the first outing, but it is still pretty messy in storytelling terms.

The Maze Runner: Film Review

maze1

This is not a terrible film but when you compare it to other young adult movie adaptations and with the source material, it is not so great. I was a massive fan of the book and I had just finished reading it in time for the screening so every single detail was fresh in my mind and I was constantly aware of how many changes they were making.

Dylan O’Brien plays Thomas, who finds himself in a lift with his memory wiped. He enters The Glade, where a gang of boys are learning to survive their imprisonment. The Glade is surrounded by a Maze that changes every night and is home to deadly creatures called Grievers. Runners traverse the maze to find an escape route but nothing seems to work. However, the arrival of Thomas and a mysterious girl changes everything.
