This list was judged on how good I thought the movie was and how closely related it was to the book.

*psa: The Maze Runner (#2) is one of my all time favorite movies and one of the best “action” movies I have seen, please go watch it if you haven’t already. Also, the Scorch Trials (second book/movie in the series) came out last month so go watch that too :)
