Welcome to the Glade." New trailer for THE MAZE RUNNER!

Adaptation of the series by James Dashner.

Read the full article on AICN

The YA adaptation trend is still going strong, and THE MAZE RUNNER looks like it fits nicely in the mold of both HUNGER GAMES and DIVERGENT with its plot of a bunch of future youngsters surviving a template of their society, in this case a big-ass maze.
 
There are no big-name co-stars to speak of (no Kate Winslet or Philip Seymour Hoffman to lend some pedigree to the proceedings), the action seems mostly shadowed and implied, the group mentality seems more POWER RANGERS in terms of solidarity than LORD OF THE FLIES, and the inclusion of a female is just…forced. Like there's any other reason for that girl to be there except that the target demo tends to veer away from sausage fests.
 
I was never all that big on these sort of BATTLE ROYALE-lite YA adaptations to begin with, and now I'm just fatigued and cynical towards them. This is ostensibly not meant for me, so it's hard to judge it objectively, but nothing about this makes me feel anything other than indifference.
 
What do fans of the series think? Does this look like it has potential?
 

 
THE MAZE RUNNER dodges grievers on September 19th.

This new rom-com sees Bateman playing the role of a rich boy whose parents finally cut him off at the tender age of 40. Aimless and broke (like the rest of us), he moves in with his friend Dylan (Billy Crudup) in an attempt to pull things together.

Hey guys! Horrorella here...
Sometimes the transition into adulthood can be hard. It’s full of complicated problems, like responsibilities, jobs, paying your own bills, figuring out what you want out of life, etc. All of this is way more difficult if you’re Jason Bateman’s character in THE LONGEST WEEK.This new rom-com sees him playing the role of a rich boy whose parents finally cut him off at the tender age of 40. Aimless and broke (like the rest of us), he moves in with his friend Dylan (Billy Crudup) in an attempt to pull things together and gain some perspective. Their relationship becomes increasingly strained, when they both start crushing on the same girl (Olivia Wilde). It’s a great cast, but the trailer doesn’t seem to offer much in the way of an engaging story. The silver lining is that Jenny Slate shows up near the end of the trailer to echo pretty much exactly what I had been thinking the entire time, so maybe there is hope.What do you guys think? THE LONGEST WEEK opens in theaters and on VOD on September 5th.

I really enjoyed the previous Reviewboy12 video that I shared, which compared the Xbox 1 vs. Playstation 1. I also appreciate the dry humor in this video, as well. I hope you enjoy it, too.

A Perfect Recipe for National Lasagna Day July 29
Yes, it’s a little warm to crank up the oven, but in honor of National Lasagna Day, we’re proposing that you do just that and make a generous pan of this lasagna Bolognese from the chefs at the new Trattoria al Forno opening this fall at Disney’s BoardWalk. The leftovers are delish. “Trattoria al Forno is true Italian cooking,” says Chef Lenny DeGeorge, executive chef, Concept Development, Walt Disney Parks & Resorts. “We’ve challenged ourselves to come up with authentic recipes that will wow our guests – this restaurant is the next chapter in Disney dining.” It’s the attention to quality and detail that sets Trattoria al forno apart, says Chef Lenny. “We’ve got an authentic prosciutto slicer, we’re making cavatelli pasta in-house, pickling peppers, making mozzarella, and serving spectacular pizza pies,” he says. One of his favorite menu items is the charcuterie, with special cured meats such as hard salami with fennel pollen. DeGeorge grew up in an American-Italian family, but says it was a trip to Italy that forever changed his thoughts on cooking Italian. “Italian food isn’t about lots of ingredients, less is more,” says Chef Lenny. “True marinara is simply the best tomatoes, garlic, olive oil […]
