    I've never seen the Maze Runner movies are they any good? I almost never hear anybody talking about them and then I'll read something that makes it sound like they were huge like The Hunger Games.

    I like that series compared to other survival/battle royale type of movies out there.

    I liked the first one a lot.

    the second one was lame.

    didn’t bother with the third.

    it’s less juvenile than the hunger games.

    First one is worth watching, stay clear of the second.

    Kind of like how I see The Hunger Games: the first one has a pretty interesting premise, the other two were forgettable.

    I would say of the 2, Maze Runner is better.

    I always thought Wonder Woman should do a movie where she’s in a maze with a centaur who has a large unit

    Exactly what he said ^

    Don't watch the 3rd.

    It's YA crap like Hunger Games. Not a fan. The first one was intriguing to say the least, I liked the concept and theme of the Maze but not with why the maze was built in the first place. The second and third movies aren't even about the maze anymore though there's still a lot of running. I watched all of them because of my exes.

    First one is pretty interesting. The 2nd and 3rd devolve into some horse shit pretty quickly.

    First one was ok, second was bad.

    The premise of the maze runner scenario makes no sense whatsoever.

    Yep. This is good advice TS.

    watch the first, then call it quits.

    They spend a lot of time saying/shouting during the first two movies

    "C'mon, let's go go go!"
    "Hurry, hurry, hurry!"
    "Run, run, run!"

    While running away from things. It's very annoying. I've yet to watch the third movie, but I'm guessing they also do the same in that one too.

    First one got me to watch the 2nd one. 2nd one got me to ignore the 3rd.

    The first and third are by far the best films of the series. All worth a watch!
