Movies in a Minute: 'Divergent'

In a futuristic world, a young woman, Tris, lives in a time where society is divided into five sections. When people become teenagers they can choose to live in a different section or stay in the one they are already in.

Tris chooses to switch and, in order to do so, she must pass a variety of tests. However, Tris is "Divergent" and doesn't fit in. If anyone finds out it could lead to her demise, or she could use her uniqueness to save her friends.

This storyline sounds familiar doesn't it? I'm not saying it is "Hunger Games" but it certainly seemed like a knock-off. Full disclosure, I did not read the books so I don't know what they changed or left out. The movie is not a complete disaster, so see it is you want, but I don't think it as complete as "Hunger Games."

About the Author

I may not be a native, but I've been in Arizona long enough to forget what it's like back East. I moved to Tucson in the 5th grade where I graduated high school and attended the UofA. The radio bug hit me early and I was a DJ at the age of 17 in Tucson. Besides being on-air at times, my main career focus has been the behind-the-scenes programming of radio stations. I have an extensive background in music radio, in addition to working at and/or running some of the biggest and most influential radio stations in America. My radio career took me to Los Angeles, San Diego and then back to Phoenix. The chance to be back on-air, and to do it at 92.3 KTAR, was too good to pass upů so here we are! Weekends are usually reserved for racing as I own and drive my own dirt track Sprint Car all over the country. I am unmarried (never have been), childless (that I'm aware of) and don't even have any pets at this point. I do own 1 plant but the fact it has survived this long without watering leads me to believe it may be plastic. I love what I do and enjoy hosting a talk radio show for people who don't like "talk radio".
