Glass is the Unbreakable Sequel We’ve All Been Waiting For

I was a big fan of M. Night Shyamalan’s early work, including his superhero film, Unbreakable. Like the rest of America, I stopped watching his films at some point…but he’s back, baby! Unbreakable 2 is right around the corner!

More precisely, that’s the trailer for Glass, the threequel that will unite Unbreakable with Split. I haven’t seen Split, yet, but it’s on my list to scarf down ahead of Glass. It looks damn cool!


Signs Remains My Favorite M. Night Shyamalan Movie

But let’s tear it apart anyway with Cinema Sins!

That was a good video, but honestly, is it really a sin when the movie is doing exactly what it’s meant to do? The whole point of the film is that all of these coincidences come together in the finale for victory, and foreshadowing these coincidences is what makes them work. Is it really a cinema sin to use foreshadowing in your film? Don’t we want things like foreshadowing in our movies?

Once upon a time, Signs was my favorite movie. I saw it in theaters with my brother and loved it! Though I haven’t watched it in probably a decade…
