The Bock’s Office: Final ‘Hunger Games’ nails it

In any fantasy or science fiction series, there are bound to be weak portions in the unfolding of a lengthy story. Fortunately, unlike the movie that preceded it, “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 2” is right on target.

The Bock’s Office: Good grief — ‘Peanuts’ revamp is great!

At this point, we’re not unfamiliar with a world where a doghouse doubles as a Sopwith Camel, all adults sound like a trombone solo and no one questions why a child is almost completely bald. Still, a return to one of the most beloved series of the last 60 years feels like visiting old friends and finding a new reason to love them in “The Peanuts Movie.”

The Bock’s Office: Halloween movies to scare and surprise

There’s a vast library of scary movies, be they genuinely terrifying or laughably bad, reaching back for decades. You needn’t look too far back in the annals of Redbox or Netflix to find horror flicks released this year like “Insidious: Chapter 3” or the remake of “Poltergeist.” Still, you can’t beat a true theatrical experience when it comes to this genre, and it’s worth the price of admission if you find something suitable for your tastes among these films still in the cineplex.

The Bock’s Office: All systems go for ‘The Martian’

When you’re looking at red, dusty landscapes without another human being in sight, you can either get motivated or get depressed. No, I’m not talking about being in Utah, rather the do-or-die hero of “The Martian.”

The Bock’s Office: ‘Scorch’ a trial of a sequel to watch

The heat is always on to create the next big thing in young adult action films. Unfortunately, in the case of ”Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” that thermal overload proves too much pressure. Out of the frying pan, as they say…

Spending your summer in the theater with the Avengers, wacky choral singers or unwieldy dinosaurs is as fine an investment as you want it to be, because the price of a movie ticket for something you enjoy is never a waste of money.
