      Not exactly The Godfather Part II, not Troll 2...

      YA novel adaptations are a dime a dozen, since Harry Potter struck box office gold back in 2001 and running a full decade (Before of course the new trilogy coming out in November 2016) which has since been tried by Hollywood to start new franchises without any luck most of the time with films such as The Host, The Golden Compass and more failing to earn those box office ducats and much critical success, Twilight and The Hunger Games have come the closest earning back billions for Lionsgate/Summit and even Divergent earning some nice notice though considered a huge ripoff (Book and film) of The Hunger Games. Fox decided to upstart their own franchise in 2014 with The Maze Runner, to surprising critical notices and even more surprising earnings at the box office. It wasn't exactly a huge breath of fresh air, though it had enough ideas to keep things interesting and well-paced with good acting and nice direction by first timer Wes Ball. One year later (Can't we have breaks of two years to help prevent fatigue?) the sequel was released to mediocre notices and lesser success in the US, though still a huge hit worldwide and a promised sequel coming 16 months later vs. the usual year spacing, to help prevent tiredness and hopefully get a better movie in the process. The story takes place directly after the first, with the Gladers escaping the Maze and being led into the hands of the WCKD. Thought to be a sanctuary, they slowly realize they are trapped in a prison and decide to escape into The Scorch where there are creatures called Cranks after them but also a true sanctuary beyond the Scorch. So of course, the film was admittedly written to not follow the novel and along with the slight rushed feeling and you can feel it not being as good as the first film. Wes Ball gives us a slow opening where the kids enter the WCKD, but things do pick up once they escape and must face past civilizations of decades past, the acting is fairly good as well with the main stars and older supporting cast acquitting themselves nicely, the special effects looking nice for a moderately budgeted film (The first film was shot for $35 million and this one about $65 million). I just hope the third film doesn't split into two and stays closer to the source material than the this film, but all in all a good time and totally recommended. The BluRay PQ/AQ is of course reference quality, with the digitally sourced photography looking excellent with deep colors, sharp details that show every facet of clothes, skin and the environment, and just looks demo-worthy. The sound is also amazing and only the 4K bluray or an IMAX showing would best the home formats. Extras are just as numerous as the first film, starting with the audio commentary with Wes Ball, TS Nawlin, and two other film crew members, a detailed documentary called Secrets of the Scorch (A series of featurettes that go in depth of the making-of this film), a series of "confessions" from the character Jansen, Visual Effects Breakdown with commentary by Wes Ball, a 15(!) minute gag reel, deleted and extended scenes with optional commentary, photo galleries and the trailer complete the on disc extras. There is also the DVD with a few of the extras from the BluRay, a Digital HD copy and a nice comic book that follows the first one included with the first film. All in all, a very awesome set worth full price, even if the film isn't quite up to par of the first, but the terrific PQ/AQ, numerous extras make it easier to bite the bullet or wait until it hits the $10 mark, as I did. It is soooo worth it and totally recommended.

      The first Maze Runner movie was enjoyable, but it seemed to fit the children/teen viewership better than for adults. This sequel however, it tailors more to the adult viewership. It was very different from the first in the sense it changed the environment to something that feels more like Resident Evil with a Hunger Games type ultimatum. Some of the acting could be better for the main roles, but there's some great supporting actors in the movie that help it to hold up more. I feel this action/adventure type of movie is a must watch and must own. I think it would be enjoyable for the whole family, but make sure you watch the first Maze Runner movie before watching this one. There are more sequels on their way and keep in mind that this series is based on the books.

      “The Scorch Trials” picks up mere minutes after the first film ended, as protagonist Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his band of fellow teenage “Gladers” are transported by helicopter to a remote fortified outpost. The group — also comprising Ki Hong Lee, Dexter Darden, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Alexander Flores and Kaya Scodelario as Teresa, the last film’s lone femme — has just escaped from a maze full of monster machines created as a test by the shadowy WCKD organization, which hopes to harness their immunity to “the flare,” a zombie-like virus that, along with an actual solar flare, has left the world barren and inhospitable.

      I absolutely loved this movie! This is the followup to the movie "The Maze Runner" which I also thought was brilliant, but the main highlight of the movie is the acting of the very talented lead Dylan O'Brien. You may also know him as Stiles, form the MTV show "Teen Wolf." He does such an amazing job of making you believe he is in the position being portrayed on the screen, not only in this film, but in everything i have seen him in. If you are also a fan of his, I recommend you check out the 2012 film "The First Time." He does such an amazing job in this romantic comedy, and really makes you fell for the character he portrays.

      The story is much lighter this time out, but Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials nevertheless improves upon the first movie. The world is bigger, the stakes are higher and there's a lot more to sink your teeth into. While some of the characters don't really click -- most notably the bad guys -- the visual scope and exploration give the sequel some much-needed breathing room. It's still easy to draw comparisons to other young adult fiction like The Hunger Games and Divergent, but unlike the first Maze Runner, this second installment stands apart.

      After seeing the Maze Runner, I was excited to see the next chapter of the story. It got a little far fetched and not as good as the first one. That being said, it was still enjoyable, and I liked the movie, but it didn't live up to the expectations I had for it. So like anything, if you go in thinking it is going to be okay, but not great, you can be pleasantly surprised. If you go in expecting the same greatness of the Maze Runner, you will find yourself where I am, being happy I saw it, but not going to be one I have to rewatch...

      I love the Steelbook versions that BestBuy sells from time to time. I must say, some have been rather plain. Just a metal boxes version of the Blu-Ray. But these are pretty slick. The first movie was released along side this version and they both sport the same look albeit different to denote the fact that it's parts 1 & 2. 2 is better then 1 but both movies are pretty good. If you can and you care about how your movies look when you display them. Try to get them in this steel book version. They are really cool.

      Actually bought this for my son but I appreciate the help that the employees gave me in locating the Blu-Ray. System showed 4 in stock but we couldn't find it on the shelf with all the other Blu-Rays. Found the DVD and the 4K versions but no Blu-Ray. They checked the back and still nothing. Finally after about 20 minutes of searching, it was found among the Disney animated movies, shelf tag and all. Totally out of place but appreciative of the helpful staff.
