As a sci-fi fan, I wasn’t running to the theater to see “The Maze Runner.”

The trailer first seen at WonderCon and the 20th Century Fox press conference I attended at Comic-Con earlier this year didn’t generate nearly as much anticipation as “The Hunger Games” or “Divergent.” And the story didn’t come across as thought-provoking as “The Giver.”

Comic-Con 2014: Feature Film Highlights

P1130378

The best party of the year arrived and it was one that fans wish would last just a little longer. After so many years of Hall H (which now arguably stands more for ‘hassles’), where major films are featured, I chose a different route last year, alternating between the hall’s mass-hysteria with subdued press conferences (Marvel’s […]

Movie Review: Maleficent

Joy for Jolie. With majestic wings, pointy horns, glowing eyes and enhanced cheekbones, Angelina Jolie (“Wanted”) is a magnetic and menacing presence.

The franchise that started the golden era of superhero movies is back with “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” with Bryan Singer (“Superman Returns”) returning to the director’s chair. More a sequel to the phenomenal “X-Men: First Class” than to the original X-Men trilogy, expectations towards the ambitious picture are at a premium.

Movie Review: The Amazing Spider-Man 2

Spidey2

Andrew Garfield (“The Social Network”) and Emma Stone (“The Amazing Spider-Man”) reprise their roles as the impossibly adorable couple, Peter Parker and Gwen Stacy, in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2,” directed by Marc Webb.

Movie Review: Transcendence

Would it still be you? How far would you take it? Would you make the world a better place given the chance? But at what cost and consequence? Is there such thing as a perfect world?
