The Hunger Games was acceptable, as young adult novel adaptations go. It certainly suffered some loss of fidelity during the translation from page to screen
I purposely avoided seeing the Fright Night remake in theaters. I’m not a fan of franchise reboots. They fail to live up to expectations all too often.
Kurt Russell stars in Soldier, a 1998 action movie about a soldier known only as Todd, selected at birth for a life of discipline, training, and combat.
If you haven’t yet made it to theaters to see “The Thing” I highly recommend that you do so while the film is still in theatrical release. If, like me, you are a fan of the 1982 version starring Kurt Russell; I promise you will not be disappointed. Mary Elizabeth Winstead is excellent in this film.

Contact’s cast includes Jodie Foster, Matthew McConaughey, and Tom Skerritt. The film is an adaptation of the book written by the acclaimed astronomer and astrophysicist Carl Sagan. That should tell the film has some credibility. Not all science fiction is based on cheesy 1960’s robot toys
Battle Los Angeles is a 2011 alien invasion movie starring Aaron Eckhart. Does Will Smith know people keep making new Independence day films without him?
