24 January 2016 12:11 PM, PST | OnTheFlix | See recent OnTheFlix news »

Columbia Pictures dropped their new action/thriller movie, "The 5th Wave," into theaters this weekend, and all the reviews are in from the major,top film critics, and it turns out that most of them were none too pleased with it, giving it only an overall 34 score out of a possible 100 across 26 reviews at the Metacritic.com site. The film features: Bailey Anne Borders, Chloë Grace Moretz, Gabriela Lopez, Maggie Siff, Matthew Zuk, Nick Robinson and Ron Livingston. We've added statements from a few of the critics, beloiw. Brian Truitt over at USA Today, gave it an 75 score, saying: "The 5th Wave finds a way to make the most of Moretz’s talents, with the emotionality she showed in If I Stay and the utter physical chutzpah of her Kick-Ass films." Clark Collis over at Entertainment Weekly, gave it a 58 score. He stated: "The frankly preposterous nature of the film »

Film Review: ‘The 5th Wave’ Crashes, Then Slowly Dissipates

22 January 2016 4:54 PM, PST | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Is there ever an end to the Young Adult Dystopia genre (“Hunger Games,” “Maze Runner,” etc.)? Or are we cursed with the end of the world every year, if it weren’t for those meddling kids? “The 5th Wave” is the latest adaptation, and if you haven’t read the source novel, good luck following it.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Yep, this is for fans of the book only, this time written by Rick Yancey, if that’s his real name. Instead of vampires or hunger or mazes, this time it’s space aliens (so obvious for the picking, good job Rick Y!). The numeric “wave” in the title refers to the step-by-step infiltration of the alien presence (1st, 2nd, etc.). At the 5th Wave, there is confrontation, and who better to confront those nasty invaders than a kid army and cute-as-a-button Chloë Grace Moretz. There is no subtlety in “The 5th Wave, »

The 5th Wave movie review: disaster movie, in more ways than one

22 January 2016 2:31 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

Lazy and trite, with a passive protagonist. It’s as if no one here understands the appeal of the postapocalyptic Ya genre it is attempting to piggyback on. I’m “biast” (pro): big sci-fi fan; desperate for stories about women; like Chloë Grace Moretz

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

And so we reach the point at which movies based on postapocalyptic Ya novels have simply stopped bothering, and now just toss up on the screen a pretty heroine, a couple of hot guys, and an obstacle course of an adventure to plow through, and consider the job done. This one is so lazy and so trite that it is itself a kind of disaster.

Here, there have been four waves of attack on Earth by mysterious aliens hovering over the planet in gigantic ships. »

Movie Review – The 5th Wave (2016)

22 January 2016 9:30 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

The 5th Wave, 2016.

Directed by J. Blakeson.

Starring Chloe Grace Moretz, Liev Schreiber, Nick Robinson, Maria Bello, Ron Livingston, Zackary Arthur, Maggie Siff, Alex Roe and Maika Monroe.

Synopsis:

In The 5th Wave, set in the present day, four waves of increasingly deadly attacks have left most of Earth decimated. Against a backdrop of fear and distrust, 16-year-old Cassie is on the run, desperately trying to save her younger brother. As she prepares for the inevitable and lethal 5th wave, Cassie meets a young man who may become her final hope.

Telegraphing your twist is one thing if it can still be pulled off with dramatic execution, but The 5th Wave is pretty much an exercise in indifference and boredom. I am admittedly not the kind of viewer that destroys their brain trying to predict the big reveal so I can feel smarter and superior than everyone else, but it’s right… »

Pumpkin, The 5th Wave Is Plagued Not by Aliens But, Rather, an Undercooked Concept

22 January 2016 8:18 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

“Pumpkin, there’s nothing safe anymore.” That’s what calmly downcast Oliver Sullivan (Ron Livingston) tells his teenage daughter, Cassie (Chloë Grace Moretz), partway through the new young-adult dystopian sci-fi The 5th Wave, and it’s a good example of the kind of very thin, deadly line the film tries to walk. It’s a movie not just about losing one’s innocence (that’s what all Ya books and movies are about these days) but about soft centers and hard shells — about the cute colliding with the cruel. That “pumpkin” makes the line ridiculous, but it’s also the word that sells the overall conceit of a seeming lyordinary girl’s life being transformed forever.A lot of Ya stories focus on characters who were outcasts or outsiders to begin with (Katniss in The Hunger Games being a prime example). Cassie, as she makes clear in The 5th Wave’s opening narration, »

The 5th Wave – The Review

21 January 2016 10:21 PM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Well film fans, 2016’s not even a month old and we’re already back in “young adult novel” land at the multiplex. Well, it’s not the tear-jerker terminal romance of The Fault In Our Stars or If I Stay. No it’s another one about a horrible future in which several special “gifted” (and highly photogenic) teenagers are humanity’s only hope. Betcha’ thought that the last installment of The Hunger Games would bring down the curtain on these tormented teen tales. Not likely since a new series pops up almost every week at your local bookstore (oh, we are lucky to have these fine establishments, so support them). While this new film does possess familiar elements of other “Ya” novel based movies, the producers have thrown in a few unique themes and twists. And it stars one of our most interesting young actors (the star of the earlier »

It's Chloe Grace Moretz vs. aliens in 4 new clips from The 5th Wave

21 January 2016 7:30 AM, PST | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Based on the popular young adult series, The 5th Wave could be the next Hunger Games.

The film follows Cassie Sullivan (Chloe Grace Moretz), who after four waves of deadly alien attacks, is on the run to save her young brother. In four new clips, we can see that Cassie is the new female heroine that we need. While Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss and Shailene Woodley's Tris have both ruled their dystopian universes, Cassie is fighting a totally different battle - aliens.

It’s great to see a female at the front and centre of an alien invasion film, and the rest of the cast looks great as well. Maria BelloRon Livingston and Liev Schreiber are joined by up-and-coming actors including Maika Monroe (It Follows), Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel) and Nick Robinson (Jurassic World).

We’re excited to see Moretz battle it out on the big »

Can 'The 5th Wave' Take Down 'Ride Along 2' at the Box Office?

19 January 2016 11:50 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last weekend, the mighty Star Wars: The Force Awakens was finally dethroned by Ride Along 2, after four straight weeks of box office. While it certainly seems that its days at the top of the box office heap are over, the film still had the widest release of any movie last weekend, even after shedding more than 300 theaters in its fifth weekend, a trend which will continue into its sixth. Still, even if it posts another minimal decrease this weekend, it won't regain the top spot for the weekend of January 22, with Ride Along 2 most likely set to stay on top, according to projections from Pro.BoxOffice.com.

Ride Along 2 faces three new movies this weekend, Sony's sci-fi action drama The 5th Wave, Lionsgate's R-rated comedy Dirty Grandpa and Stx Entertainment's horror-thriller The Boy, none of which are expected to take down Ride Along 2. After a healthy $35.2 million debut, Ride Along »

Film Review: ‘The 5th Wave’

14 January 2016 10:00 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Taken on its own, “The 5th Wave” is an effectively decent post-apocalyptic, young-adult, world-in-the-balance survival thriller. Yet the multitudinous devotees of Rick Yancey’s wildly successful 2013 novel may have more issues with what has been edited or left out entirely than with what’s survived the transition. Still, the film will ride the inevitable wave of fandom and newcomers alike to moderate box office and a healthy afterlife, allowing producers Tobey Maguire and Graham King to move forward with production of the other two books in the author’s proposed trilogy, “The Infinite Sea” (2014) and “The Last Star,” to be published later this year.

Enough of Yancey’s ambitious narrative has made the final cut to reflect an arrestingly original spin on trendy genre tropes. In the present day, Ohio teenager Cassie Sullivan (Chloe Grace Moretz) does what modern young people do: drink beer at unsupervised house parties, moon over boys — in this case, »

First Trailer For ‘The Conjuring 2’ Heads to a Creepy London

7 January 2016 11:06 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Grossing over $300 million on a $20 million budget back in 2013, The Conjuring led James Wan to take on Furious 7, but now he’s back in the realm of horror with a follow-up to his hit feature. Featuring the return of demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga), they travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.

The first trailer has now arrived ahead of another prime summer release from Warner Bros. teasing the spooky new story, one which will hopefully pack the same uneasiness. Also starring Ron Livingston, Lili Taylor, Joey King, Shanley Caswell, Haley McFarland, Mackenzie Foy, Kyla Deaver, and Sterling Jerins, check out the first trailer below.

The Conjuring 2 opens on June 10th, 2016.
