It’s not easy being a teenager in a dystopian society.  You are either forced into deadly games, told what your future will be, or, in this case, made to face the unknown dangers of a mysterious and deadly maze.

Having been a successful art director, Wes Ball makes a strong feature film directorial debut with THE MAZE RUNNER, based on the YA novel by James Dashner.  The visuals of the maze and the creatures it contains are striking and frighteningly real in

100 Feet is Short Distance to a Perfect Film

 Rating: 4 out of Fordyce (Perfect)


 Now Playing at The Mary Pickford in Cathedral City     CLICK FOR SHOWTIMES

by: Jim Fordyce

I love Helen Mirren, so she was a big incentive to head the Mary Pickford Movie house for a Sunday night screening of what I had already been told was a wonderful movie.
The 100 foot journey is the story of the Kadam family. They leave India and, after a stop in London, they end up in France where the clan's stubborn patriarch open a restaurant directly across the road from Madame Mallory's Michelin starred very fancy eatery.
She is not exactly the welcome wagon and they are not exactly the quiet neighbors you might want. There are fussing, and fighting, then a big turn that makes this move so wonderful.  

Mirren IS Madame Mallory and she is brilliant. Mansig Dayal plays the charming son with a flare for making dinner and an eye on one of MM's staff members. Add in Om Puri as the picture perfect papa and you have a great movie that gets a perfect 4 out of Fordyce
