Blogging since 2004, about the significant people, places, sights and sounds of my world. Now dabbling with retirement!
Reading time: < 1 minute... Off to the Odeon this afternoon with Jo and Janet to catch the 3.15 performance of Glass. I’m a big fan of the comic-book/super hero/villain genre, but this one nearly passed me by – and I’m not sure why! 😮 Slightly more embarrassing though is that it’s related to two previous movies – Unbreakable from 2000 and Split in 2016. I’m pretty sure I saw the former but I’ll need to fix a date to see Split with Jo and Janet as I definitely haven’t seen that one! 🤔 So, I’m going in blind with this latest instalment! And actually, even without the benefit of the previous movies, it turned out to be a really good film! James McAvoy deserves an Award for how seamlessly he slipped from one character to another, whilst ‘Mr Glass’ was a bit of an unknown until two-thirds of the way through – then he really dominated the movie! The plot was intelligent, with lots of twists and turns along the way. The final 15 minutes was an absolute ‘show-stopper’ in so many ways (so I won’t reveal the details here). A bit of scope for another follow-up movie too, but not with the characters you’d expect! ☺ If you like a deeper storyline compared with the normal super-hero movies, put it on your list!
