This past weekend at camp I had a good conversation with a co-worker about the state of movies, particularly those of the dystopian/teenage kind. I had such high hopes for The Hunger Games, even though I left most of those movies frustrated by the complicit nature of each character’s journey. The fourth and final movie was such a dud to me (and not having read the books, I didn’t know how it would end). The same is true for The Maze Runner series. I really enjoyed the simplicity of the first movie. And while the second movie wasn’t stellar, it was enough to get me interested in seeing how it all ends. Now, after quite the break, we’re finally going to see how it all ends in The Death Cure. Horrible name for a movie, I think, but beggars can’t be choosers. Here’s the just-released first trailer for the early-2018 release.
