Glass MOVIE Review -SPOILERS-


AUDIO REVIEW

Check out this episode!



There are affiliate links in the post

There are spoilers in this review.

I saw Unbreakable in theaters when it was released in 2000.   As a comic book fan, I loved the twist.    I later saw Split in 2016 and was floored by James Mcavoy's performance.  I enjoyed both of these films and was highly anticipating M. Night Shymalan's 3rd entry in the series, Glass.   

Overall, I felt this was a good movie which didn't need to be 2 hours plus.   

What I liked:

-James Mcavoy was excellent once again playing 23 characters by himself and having the most screen time.    His interactions with Casey played by Anya Taylor-Joy were emotional, especially their final scene.

- The inclusion of the family members/friends of the main characters.    All being played by the same actors from the original films(Spencer, Casey, and Elijah's mother) was great. 

-The use of footage from past movies blended throughout this film to fill out the story was excellent.    The effect of doing so makes this world, all taking place within the city of Philadelphia, come alive.   

-The introduction of the four leaf clover organization and their purpose.    Sarah Paulson was the glue that held this together and it delivered.

-Elijah being the unexpected mastermind behind the creations of Kevin and David(this was kind-of revealed in Unbreakable)was a cool surprise.

What I didn't like:  

-The 2nd act, where Sarah Paulson's Dr. Ellie Staple was convincing the 3 they weren't superheroes, went in circles.    This is where the film dragged.   

-Bruce Willis was felt in the film but didn't have many lines.   Sam Jackson was fun as always and wouldn't be denied, but he didn't have many lines either.  

-I loved/hated Elijah's comic book explanations as it relates to the events in the film.    Comics being another version of the truth which documents humans having abilities, yes.      The uses of comic book terms, 'limited edition/series' or 'origin story' and their minimal explanation, no.    Do I have to watch this film multiple times to get it?    Do I want to watch this movie again? 

-Once we get to the institution that's it.   This is where the film stays the bulk of the time.   Another location with the main players would've been nice.   A part of me wanted the final battle to be in Osaka Tower. 

-The ending felt muted.   I wasn't left wanting more.

This film is the weakest of the trilogy and doesn't need a sequel.    If you celebrated the first two films you don't need to see this one.   Unless you want more of these wonderful characters and a not so glorious send-off.

By watching the first two parts of this series below, you will be supporting the filmmakers and myself.   Thanks!

Movie & TV Recommendations for January 2019





YOUTUBE VERSION

There are affiliate links in this post

During the fall and winter, I tend to stay in more often.   When this happens I enjoy catching up on TV.   But what to watch?      I'm here to help.    These are TV shows that I've watched in the final months of 2018 and into the beginning of 2019.   These are recommended.   There might be some spoilers in spots.

Television

American Horror Story seasons 2,3,5

After watching and enjoying Haunting of Hill House on Netflix, I wanted to continue seeing some great horror TV.   I've heard rumblings about how good American Horror Story is from co-workers over the last few years.    I even talked about it with my therapist as she's a fan of the show.    I binged-watched seasons 1-5.    I began season 6(Roanoke)but it did not hook me and I dropped it about 3 episodes in.    My favorite seasons where Asylum, Coven, and Hotel.    They weren't perfect but so much fun.   There were wonderful homages to classic horror movies in Coven such as Evil Dead and Night of the Living Dead.   Hotel was visually eye-catching and has some of the craziest characters such as James Patrick March and the Countess.   Asylum feels like an engaging novella you'd read on a long trip(and my absolute favorite of the three).

Daredevil season 3

All hail(in my opinion)the best Netflix-Marvel show.    This is the series I currently recommend to co-workers and friends if they are deciding on checking out the multitude of superhero, long-form content on Netflix.    In season 3, worthwhile adversaries Bullseye and Wilson Fisk a.k.a. Kingpin give Matt Murdock a run for his money.     

When we were kids, my younger brother owned a beat-up, Secret Wars, Mattel Daredevil figure.   I think he got it from a friend.    Little did I know this Marvel character would have such a rich history of awesome gritty noir storylines.    After watching this season I wanted more.    Possibly a great comic story to read from this character.   I found on Comixology 'Man without Fear' by Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.     What a great book that was!    I will discuss this graphic novel in a future podcast episode.

If you watch only one episode of this season, see episode 4 titled 'Blindsided.'   Witness an incredible prison fight scene which goes on and on.    Fantastic stuff.

Hell's Kitchen https://amzn.to/2TnPx23

Amazon Prime recently added multiple seasons of these 3 shows.  These were some of my favorite reality TV.   Revisiting them took me back to a time when I lived at home with mom.   They'd be appointment television watching.    I moved away on bad terms.   When I rented my first room, on lonely nights, these shows brought a small warmth of being back under my mother's wing.   They eased some homesickness when it would arise.    

Most of January 2019 has been spent watching these shows.    I love watching Hell's Kitchen while preparing and having dinner.   Seeing the chefs, the cooking, the challenges and 'Chef Ramsay' tearing into the competitors.    At home, out loud, I've often imitated the voiceover guy because I find him ridiculously entertaining.   

Amazing Race used to be my absolute favorite reality show.   The variety, the world travel, the teams, and their stories.   Phil Keoghan is a very likable host.   'The last team to check in here may be eliminated!'   

Phil Keoghan interview by Tim Ferris https://bit.ly/2Uv6iIu  

I enjoyed but had a disdain for Survivor.    The show was fun but the lying, cheating, stealing between the competitors was slimy and didn't feel good after watching.    With 2019 eyes, it is my favorite of the three.    Why?   I find storytelling is the best on Survivor.   I'm currently studying storytelling to improve my podcast, blog, videos.   This is the program which quickly gets me invested in rooting for the competitors or in tears when the finalists meet their loved ones.        

Watching these shows on Amazon Prime I can skip ahead and not spend 45 minutes per episode.    This is great for revisiting seasons I already watched in the past.


Narcos season 4

I truly enjoyed the first 3 seasons of this series.    This chapter started off slowly but ended in suspense.    It portrays Diego Luna as a villain who at first I empathized with.    But throughout the course of the show, you see his evil ways rear their ugly head.    Micheal Pena's character who tragically never quits in his search to arrest Diego Luna is inspiring but sad.    Other standouts are Tenoch Huerta as the unhinged Caro and his girlfriend Sofia Contessa played by Tessa La.   Matt Lescher as DEA agent Jaime Kuykendall, Joaquin Cosio as Don Neto were great too.   Narcos often has a very strong cast.    I loved how it connected to previous seasons with appearances by the  Cali Cartel and Pablo Escobar.    A young Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman is introduced and becomes a recurring character.     Season 4 is not the strongest of the show but it is quality.

The Last Kingdom season 3 https://amzn.to/2FZyW1c

I watched the first two seasons of this program before Netflix acquired it online through nefarious means.    I am a fan of the History Channel's Vikings.   When I came across this program a few years ago I thought the Last Kingdom looked like the aforementioned Vikings.    It even had a character of the same name(Ragnar Lothbrook).    

What I like about the show over the other is the pace.   It moves much quicker.    Also, we(the viewer)ride alongside the core group of characters(barring a few new players introduced here and there)and watch them develop through all 3 seasons.

Alexander Dreymon is a very charismatic lead and the supporting cast of King Alfred his family, Father Beocca, Brida, Aelswith, Athelwold to name a few, fill out this show well.    One of my favorite things is just listening to these names over and over on the show.    Great villains, great action you won't go wrong with this series.
