Vlog TNTM: IT Chapter 2 movie review, audience reactions at Alamo Drafthouse

The name Stephen King has long been synonymous with horror stories. Some of the movies that scared me the most growing up were adapted from his books. My heart still skips a beat every time I see a Saint Bernard.

The original IT movie starring Tim Curry was always a masterpiece in my mind. When they remade the movie in 2017 I was skeptical if they could meet the high standards set by the original. Well, that skepticism was misplaced. IT went on to do very well at the box office and introduce a whole new generation of horror fans to Pennywise and the world of Stephen King.

Fast forward to 2019 and we hear about a sequel. A lot of times sequels are greenlit after a successful movie as a money grab for the movie execs. They are more interested in sucking as much worth out of a franchise than about making a solid continuation of the original story. That isn’t the case with IT Chapter 2.

Without giving too much away, The Losers Club is called upon to reconvene in Derry 27 years after the events of the original movie.
Evidence points to the fact that Pennywise is back and up to his old tricks. Of course they decide to stay and fight Pennywise again. It would be a very short movie if they all decided to leave.

This movie is just short of 3 hours long. Our advice is to go to the bathroom before it starts and don’t drink a lot during the movie. Unless you have a bladder of steel you will probably miss a few scenes by going to pee.

We didn’t find the movie to be overly scary. It was more of a suspense-thriller type of movie. Kinda like Christine (Another great Stephen King movie). The story was solid, the CGI was good, and the acting was great. The audience agreed with us as the lowest grade they gave it was 9.5 out of 10. If you are a Stephen King fan or just a fan of scary type movies, you should really enjoy IT Chapter 2.

We have also added a Google Voice number where you can call and leave us your thoughts. If they are good, we will use them on the show. The number is (575) 323-1332.

Video: M. Night Shyamalan Glass Review and Audience Reactions

M. Night Shyamalan completed his Eastrail trilogy with Glass. It is the sequel to both Unbreakable and Split. Glass ties the previous two movie together rather nicely.

In Unbreakable you are introduced to Elijah Price and David Dunn. Elijah Price has a rare disease causing his bones to be brittle and broken easily. David Dunn finds out he is super strong and impervious to a lot of injuries.

In Split we get to meet Kevin Wendell Crumb and his 20+ personalities. We find out that one of those personalities is the Beast who also has superhuman strength.

Glass stitches these two movies together. Glass should shut the door on the Eastrail trilogy, but it opens the door for another related movie. All I am gonna say is I am thinking about getting a clover tattoo.

We recommend watching Glass, especially if you’ve seen the previous two movies. If you’ve seen Glass let us know if you agree/disagree in the comments.

Video+Story: Glass by M. Night Shyamalan Preview

For me, Unbreakable was really the first superhero movie. Before the big box office Marvel and DC movies, we were introduced to David Dunn (Bruce Willis).

We find out that David Dunn is super strong and nearly indestructible after he survives a train wreck. We also meet Mr. Glass (Samuel L. Jackson). His real name is Elijah Price, but got the nickname of Mr. Glass due to his fragility.

Mr. Glass is a big comic book aficionado. He figures if there is someone as fragile as him, it stands to reason there should be those on the other end of the spectrum as well. He has set out to find the super-human equivalent of himself. That is where David Dunn figures in the equation.

Then we have the movie Split with James Mcavoy playing a multiple personality person who goes by the name, the Horde. One of his personalities is a super human individual that has the most basic instincts. We have no idea that Split is connected to Unbreakable until the end scene that shows David Dunn in his characteristic rain coat.

Now we have Glass which is being billed as the third movie in the trilogy. From the trailers it appears that all three (Mr. Glass, Horde, and David Dunn) are all in the same asylum being treated for believing they are super heroes. Mr. Glass seems to be the evil mastermind using the Horde to carry out his demands. David Dunn is the quintessential good guy trying to stop them.

Unbreakable and Split were both really great movies in their own right. Knowing they are tied together in a trilogy elevates them in my mind. I am really hoping Glass puts a big exclamation point on the series.

Did you like Unbreakable and Split? Are you looking forward to Glass like we are? Let us know in the comments.

TNTM: Glass is the sequel to M. Night Shyamalan’s Unbreakable

Unbreakable and Split get a sequel. Unbreakable was the superhero movie that preceded the blockbuster Marvel and DC superhero movies.

It managed to tell a great story about a superhero and super-villain without relying on high tech gadgets or CGI graphics. Samuel L. Jackson and Bruce Willis really brought their characters to life.

Fast forward to present time. M. Night’s movie Split introduced us to a multiple personality bad guy played by James McAvoy. Split was a good movie in it’s own right. What got a lot of us fanboys excited was the cameo of Bruce Willis’s Unbreakable character, David Dunn. A lot of younger movie goers might not remember that character from a movie that was released 17 years ago. Us old timers had an absolute nerdgasm upon seeing Unbreakable linked to Split.

The sequel will be titled “Glass”. If you remember, Samuel L. Jackson’s villain character from Unbreakable was named Mr. Glass due to his medical condition giving him very fragile bones. There hasn’t been a lot of information given on this movie as of yet. M. Night Shyamalan has confirmed it is definitely linked to Unbreakable and Split. The early rumors are Mr. Glass is the main villain manipulating James McAvoy’s character to due his bidding.

If M. Night can recapture that magic he had with Unbreakable the movie will be amazing. I love to see heroes and villains depicted as everyday people instead of over-hyped blow-hards in tights and a cape. It will also be interesting to see Jackson, Willis, and McAvoy playing off each other on the big screen. This movie has the potential to be another box office hit for Shyamalan.
