CocktailsandMovies.com Whaddya Got On Tap? – Week of 01/26/18

by Tim Barley and Duwayne Tso

It’s Not Crowded in the Maze This Weekend

Maze Runner Whaddya Got On Tap

It’s going to be a slow weekend at the box office, cocktailers. The only question we ask is, will Maze Runner: The Death Cure take over from Jumanji? Other than that, it might be a weekend to just catch up on movies you may have missed.

Let’s see what’s new this week, as we ask, “Whaddya Got On Tap?”

Just one wide releases for this week.

Maze Runner: The Death Cure   

Distributor: 20th Century Fox
Director: Wes Ball
Cast: Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rosa Salazar, Aidan Gillen, Patricia Clarkson, and Walton Goggins
Rating: PG-13
Run Time: 142 mins

Official Synopsis: Young hero Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure for a deadly disease known as the “Flare”.

CocktailsandMovies.com’s Take: Kind of intrigued. The second one was a bit too much and spread itself thin in the YA, teenage-apocalypse genre, but maybe this is the bow that wraps it up nicely.

Duwayne’s Pick: Maze Runner: The Death Cure!  I enjoyed the first one immensely, but the second one left me a bit disappointed. The trailer looks good with a slight return to what made the first so enjoyable. This is a make or break movie in the Maze Runner series.

Tim’s Pick: I took in 12 Strong yesterday, so I’m almost caught up. But, I’m in for Maze Runner.
