MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Allegiant’ isn’t the last ‘Divergent’ movie and that’s unfortunate

Film: The Divergent Series – Allegiant Directed by: Robert Schwentke Starring: Shailene Woodley, Jeff Daniels, Theo James, Naomi Watts The Divergent series always seemed a bit of an enigma to me.

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Insurgent’ Is A Complete Disaster

Film: Insurgent Starring: Shailene Woodley, Theo James Directed by: Robert Schwentke Coming off a film that seemed to exist solely for the purpose of setting up its sequel(s), Insurgent offers more of the same mediocrity the Divergent series has become synonymous with over the last year.

First Trailer For ‘Divergent’ Feels A Bit Too Familiar

Do you love The Hunger Games, but wish it had less ridiculous costumes and a more straightforward take on action? Do you swoon at the thought of a strong, independent teen becoming a women while single-handedly saving/damning the entire planet? If you answered yes to either of those, you’re about to have your day made. […]
