One of the biggest movie releases this fall is the Maze Runner based on the #1 New York Times bestselling novel by James Dashner. My Twitter feed has buzzed about everything about this film for weeks now which makes it all the more sad that I won’t be able to see it until it hits Redbox.
It’s not that I don’t want to see it right away, I do. I read the book several years ago and found a brilliant and innovative world with a compelling story. It has the right bones to make an awesome movie. And from early reviews, it is meeting expectations.
I guess I’m picky. When I go see a movie I want to go with my hubby which means it has to be in the evening or during the weekend. I can’t bring along the kids for two reasons, the first being that the oldest two don’t handle situations of peril very well and would either begin crying or would demand to leave and the youngest would simply cry and demand to leave because he doesn’t like movie theaters after the first 20 minutes. The second reason is that buying tickets for five at full evening prices and then add in the popcorn and drinks costs about as much as a car payment.
My apologies to the franchise in advance. Come December I will get the DVD, pop some of popcorn and curl up with my sweetie in my jammies and see what everyone has been talking about.
What movies are you waiting to watch?
