    Like the second one, this movie was just really fucking awesome. Seriously dig the hell out of these Maze Runner movies.

    I liked the first one better than the second, but I'm looking forward to this. My favorite of the modern YA movie series'.

    With its production delays, it is strange to finally see this released well after every other film series of its ilk has ended or faded into YA oblivion just a few years later.

    Almost makes me nostalgic for the luxury of those sort of Obama-era fantasy dystopias.
    Last 11 things I really enjoyed:

    Speed Racer (Wachowski/Wachowski, 2008)
    Safe (Haynes, 1995)
    South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut (Parker, 1999)
    Beastie Boys Story (Jonze, 2020)
    Bad Trip (Sakurai, 2020)
    What's Up Doc? (Bogdanovich, 1972)
    Diva (Beineix, 1981)
    Delicatessen (Caro/Jeunet, 1991)
    The Hunger (Scott, 1983)
    Pineapple Express (Green, 2008)
    Chungking Express (Wong, 1994)

    Too long. Not much payoff. Better than 2 but not as good or fun as the mystery from the first one.

    Two is easily the best in the whole serious, though.

    The first is- as I said, because of the mystery. Once you find out what the maze is for, it just becomes a run of the mill regular dystonia future with bad kid actors and generic action. It's compounded in the third one when you learn they could have scrapped the whole maze for a VR simulation. Like really?

    The first movie was just another generic YA movie. The second one is when things actually got really interesting, and they took a lot of totally bad ass turns with the franchise.

    You agreed with my sentiment, btw: http://matchcut.artboiled.com/showth...als-(Wes-Ball)

    Hmm. I dont have Letterboxd review either. Maybe I'm confusing it something else.

    Well lucky for you, I have no such evidence handy stating otherwise.
