I didn't know that the movie Glass (2019) was like a follow-up of Split (2016). Can't wait to see this sequel! Thanks for the info!

Wait a minute... I'm reading now on the Internet that Glass is also a sequel of the movie Unbreakable (2000) at the same time! Unbreakable is my favorite movie from M. Night Shyamalan! Can't wait!

You did watch to the end of Split, right?

Ok, I think I got it! When we see the famous actor (I removed the name for people who haven't seen the movie yet)? Yeah it was great! I think at first I misunderstood "at the diner"...

My disdain for the self-indulgence of Unbreakable was well documented on the old board. The scene where he spent what seemed like ten minutes lifting paint cans is a good example. It was a great idea but somebody needed to rein in Night who was riding high on the success of Sixth Sense and thought he could do no wrong (kind of like a prog metal band that doesn't use a producer and as a result ends up with three minutes of instrumental walking and atmospheric stuff and no song).

It is possible that I was unduly harsh on Unbreakable and I should probably watch it again. I liked what it was *trying* to do -- the concept is brilliant. But I didn't like the execution.

Since then, Night has had his share of lumps (some deserved, some maybe not...frankly I didn't think Lady in the Water was as bad as most did, although it certainly wasn't great) and I think he is both matured and probably a little humbled. Split was incredibly bold. Granted he had the good fortune of Jame McCoy's performance which was amazing, and the movie wouldn't have worked nearly as well without a performance like that. But it worked for sure. And by the end, with the scene in the diner, I was REALLY fired up because I totally wasn't expecting this to be set in the same universe.

So now, I am REALLY pumped for Glass. Hopefully he delivers and his execution equals his vision. When he is on, he is a great filmmaker.

Meanwhile, I just re-watched the final scene from Split. I got chills!
