    "The Maze Runner is a 2014 American dystopian science fiction action thriller film directed by Wes Ball. The story follows sixteen-year-old Thomas, portrayed by O'Brien, who awakens in a rusty elevator with no memory of who he is, only to learn he's been delivered to the middle of an intricate maze, along with a large number of other boys, who have been trying to find their way out of the ever-changing labyrinth- all while establishing a functioning society in what they call the Glade."

    "I'm actually a part of District 2 (as determined by Lionsgate) so I was very excited that there was a bag that I could call my own. In the pictures, the bag looked great, and after seeing the movie, it looks pretty identical to what was shown on film. When I got the bag in the mail, it still looked just as great. However, it was a bit smaller than I was imagining. Maybe it was because of the picture online, but the bag is also smaller than the one in the movie. Thus, this is a light bag, so don't expect to carry much in it. Another thing worth commenting is its durability. When you hear "duffel bag" you think heavy duty. At least that's what I thought. But when you actually feel the fabric of the bag, while it looks nice, it's also pretty thin. This makes me scared to accidentally tear the fabric while I'm using it. Also, I've heard friends say that they've had problems with the drawstring, such as the clasp coming undone or it unraveling. It's a shame that this bag wasn't made to be more durable, since I'm sure many fans would love to use this bag on a regular basis."

    "I watched Ender's Game with my family for movie night a few months back when one of my children requested it. It was adventurous and more innocent than the Hunger Games movies but still had the suspense and drama."

    "Baytle Royale has placed a firm foot in the entertainment industry ever since Hunger Games came to theaters. There have been many great films in on the last to survive/kill or be killed concepts, but Battle Royal Fukasaku is not one of them. In my opinion the poor quality of the acting didn’t allow me to fully immerse myself in the movie."

    "Usually what happens when I buy movies that are part of a trilogy or series, is that I buy them individually, and then the studio decides to release an 'ultimate collectors edition' that packages all of the movies together... LOL. Oh well. I don't mind it so much when I enjoy the movies. Xmen - First Class is no exception. I definitely was surprised when they decided to do a 'reboot', but I believe it worked in their favor since it was good to get some fresh faces and a different take on the X-Men movie franchise."

    "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is a great move, although not much like Hunger Games. It is a live-action action movie with very little gore and sexuality, which makes it perfect for family movie night. "

    "This is an amazing movie, and visually one of the very few TRUE 4K movies (film, effect, post-production all 4K or nearly 4K) out there. First, if you are not ready to sit down and put your mind into the movie, don't bother watching it. It's complex, and deep. It's about family, selflessness, sacrifice, and the amazing vastness of time and space. I would consider myself a technical person, and a reasonably intelligent person, but only after my third viewing (today, finally got the UHD Blu Ray and watched the third time) do I fully understand everything that was happening. About 3/4 of the way through the movie goes into some pretty crazy territory, but it actually all makes sense once you fully understand what is happening. Things like black holes and worm holes and the effects of gravity and velocity on time and how that would effect the travelers vs. those they left behind are intense subjects. Leaving a dying earth and a seemingly doomed family including young kids behind to have some shot at saving their future is an intense concept to me as a father. There is no way to quickly tell a story this deep or technical, and I can see how it just might be too much for many."
