Let's Discuss the Ending of Glass

An M. Night Shyamalan movie isn’t a proper M. Night Shyamalan movie without some kind of twist ending. Thankfully, his latest film Glass fits the bill and then some. In fact, Shyamalan may even out Shyamalan himself with a fascinating turn of events that we think is worth a much broader discussion. So, let’s do that,…Read more...

‘Glass’ Spoiler Review: Breaking Down M. Night Shyamalan’s Disastrous Sequel to ‘Unbreakable’ and ‘Split’

“Please enjoy this film that took 19 years to make!” This sentence greeted me as I sat down at a pre-release screening of Glass last week, as the final part of a letter from its writer/producer/director M. Night Shyamalan to the audience. The upshot of the letter was basically, “Please don’t spoil Glass” (which I’m about to do, so…sorry!) but I could not help but latch onto that last sentence as I steeled myself for the crossover between two of Shyamalan’s earlier films, Unbreakable and Spl...

Review: Shyamalan's 'Glass' Shatters Expectations with Strong Themes & Powerhouse Performances

Indian-American filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan first gained major acclaimed for his 1999 supernatural horror drama The Sixth Sense. That film was a commercial and critical success and was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Original Screenplay. His next big feature released in 2000, the ambitious Unbreakable, kickstarted the modern comic book movie boom alongside Bryan Singer's X-Men, also released the same year. Shyamalan's Unbreakable, which co-star...

How a Costume Designer Brightened M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’

Paco Delgado’s costumes are as varied as his films. Contrast the drama “The Danish Girl,” the futuristic fantasy “A Wrinkle in Time” and the period musical “Les Misérables.” Now he’s in comic-book territory with M. Night Shyamalan’s newest superhero/supervillain thriller, “Glass,” which Universal releases Jan. 17. The costume designer’s career began in Barcelona and London, […]

‘Unbreakable’ Was a Superhero Movie Years Ahead of Its Time

The worldwide theatrical release of M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass this week has prompted a rush of appreciation online for Unbreakable, the first in what became a trilogy of superhero films spread out over nineteen years. With its deconstructionist take on superhero mythology, the 2000 flick, starring Bruce Willis and Samuel L. Jackson, anticipated the great wave of 21st-century comic book movies and TV shows grounded in pseudo-realism. Everything from The Dark Knight trilogy to the Marvel Cin...

'Captain America: The First Avenger' Stands Out in a Glut of Comic Book Films

None Discussions of the mythical "superhero fatigue" were in full swing in the summer of 2011, and the concept has been raised every time a superhero film is considered a critical or commercial disappointment. The basis of superhero fatigue is the idea that audiences will grow tired of the neverending glut of big-budget comic book films, and will stop seeing them en masse. It's quaint to think of film bloggers in 2011 foretelling the imminent implosion of the genre when, seven years later, mega...

Glass Is a Frustrating, Unsatisfying Conclusion to the Unbreakable Saga

Nineteen years ago, I saw M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable and fell in love. To this day, it’s one of my favorite movies of all time. So, when I saw Split four months before release, the shocking revelation that it took place in the same universe was one of my most memorable theatrical experiences. I say these things…Read more...

Film Review: M. Night Shyamalan’s ‘Glass’

In “Glass,” writer-director M. Night Shyamalan revisits three of his most popular — and, dare I say it, iconic — characters: David Dunn (Bruce Willis), the sad-sack Philadelphia security guard from “Unbreakable,” who discovered that he was physically indestructible and, with a kind of agonized destiny, began to take on the identity of an earthbound superhero; […]

‘Glass’ Review: M. Night Shyamalan’s Superhero Sequel Is Anything But Super

With Glass, M. Night Shyamalan brings together the worlds of Unbreakable and Split, and the result is depressing and disappointing. After regaining most of his directorial mojo with his most recent work, Shyamalan now takes a huge, unfortunate step backwards, tarnishing the legacy of Unbreakable, his best movie, in the process. In 2000, M. Night Shyamalan dropped Unbreakable on unsuspecting moviegoers. The filmmaker was still riding high from his acclaimed, breakout hit The Sixth Sense, with...
