Glass was 90% lit and 10% chit with the shoehorned twist. Will wait till more people have seen it before saying any more.

just got back from glass. the last 1/3 of the movie was chit. it fell apart so bad. unbreakable and split were amazing and this just disappointed me. any time Shyamalan has pressure on him to make a good movie he blows it.

Still really enjoyed it. Getting to see Willis and Jackson suit up again after being blue balled for 17 years after Unbreakable, it was just fun to be back in that universe. Have seen some comparisons to the TLJ with the ending and how it divided fans but TLJs biggest transgression was it was just boring. 

Glass was never boring.

Glass was great! 

The twist was kinda meh,

because they killed everyone off, but I felt relieved and a sense of justice when it was revealed that the mastermind "always has a plan... always" so considering it was Mr. Glass' movie, i didn't mind him being kinda redeemed a little bit in the end (still doesn't make up for being a mass murderer though)

Apologies. I just assumed he was impervious to our tags after the past couple attempts on Facebook.

Couldn’t have said it better myself, just out of the cinema now, the third act and especially the last 10-15 minutes ruined the film for me. 

Shyamalan should honestly start working with someone to help him with crafting the ending of his stories.

His biggest problem is over explaining things that don't need it and under explaining things that do, that the general audience might not be able to connect the dots on. I think that's why the critics were so hard on it.

SPOILERS

Most of them cited too many twists at the end but if you watched Split and put 2 and 2 together with the Horde laying flowers at the train station, you would know that his dad being on the crashed train wasn't a twist. If all the critics were as familiar with the films as some of the bigger fans, they would have understood David Dunn drowning in a puddle as Elijah references that in Unbreakable. It's actually a pretty brilliant movie, just lacking on the subtly.

Couldn't find it either but you won't be ruining anything for me. Have heard all the complaints and plotholes, agree with most of them but still enjoyed the movie. What;s your boggle?

Fine I did try, this should work anyway made the text a little smaller

The thing that really pissed me off was the introduction of the secret society in like the last 20-30 mins just felt like they ruined the film. They had both McAvoy and Willis characters killed off by two faceless goons. McAvoy's I get that Kevin is meant to have gotten some sort of redemption after reclaiming the light but Willis is literally just drowned in a puddle, it was just such a chitty end for him. Even when the Dr touches him at the end it didn't feel anything other than wow what a bish this chick is, not only is she having him killed she's basically saying "Bet you listened to me that you were just crazy now huh?". The whole thing of them meeting in restaurants as well was just dumb, so wait everyone from the big business exec out for lunch to the waiter is in it? Pretty sure secret society are a lot more elitist.  Agree though I really enjoyed the train crash reveal it just sucks that it was the only bit of prime beef in a chit sandwich of a third act.

SPOILERS

Maybe M. Night has catfished me enough times that maybe my standards were low enough that I was just happy he didn't explore other potential plot lines. Was happy he didn't retcon the whole franchise by just making them delusional like the trailers teased. Was happy we didn't get some big Marvel battle at the top of the tower like advertised. I liked how it offered a grounded counter to all the Marvel/DC movies. If there would have been a bit of foreshadowing on David Dunn's death (something like)

Image result for batman you've given them everything

I think the fanboying would be universal but his death was so jarring, I get the hate. Still had a pretty good movie high after leaving the theater.

I've got some real rustle going on right now.

3 from hell is a movie that has zero ****ing reason to be made! House of 1000 Corpses and Devils Rejects were both great and it ended perfectly with them getting mowed down trying to go through a road block. 3 psychos going out in a hail of bullets.....absoluetly perfect!

**** this nonsense. This is what happens when every other movie you make sucks donkey balls, you have to go back and fu*k up the two movies that were great. 

**** Rob Zombie.
