Even though all the available evidence suggests that the once-lucrative, dystopian YA adaptation trend has run its course, the producers behind the Divergent series would beg to differ. Given its derivative, original plot and logic-challenged world building, Veronica Roth’s YA series didn’t exactly merit big-screen adaptations, but here we are, three films
STEVE JOBS delivers on almost every front, but can’t escape the shadow of ‘The Social Network’.
THE MARTIAN: A taut, tense thriller with practically everything moviegoers could possibly want from a 21st century “Robinson Crusoe on Mars.”
