Finally found an uninterrupted 2hrs to sit down and watch Split, Shyamalan's, latest effort, and I'm a lot more at ease with him doing Glass. Split was well paced and the story developed satisfyingly for me. Hopefully, Shyamalan remains on the same vibe when doing Glass.
So, I accidentally found out that Split ties in with Unbreakable... would have been a bigger impact had I not known that but I was still taken by surprise that Split was a villain origin story. Did not see that coming so kudos to Shyamalan for giving me that. McAvoy is good in this flick. Hopefully, in Glass, Willis won't just phone it in with this one like most of his efforts lately.
I guess for me, I enjoyed being intrigued by the internal conflict within this guy, the motives for him capturing these girls, and if/how they'd get out of there. Plus, we get great vids such as this:
On the topic of Glass, I was reading that he intends to make it a stand alone movie and that it could be its own thing. I'm not sure how he's going to do that since he's not introducing all new characters and giving us an origin story to those characters. But I'm keen to be surprised if he can pull it off.
