Eighteen years after the release of one of my favorite movies, M. Night Shyamalan returns to write and direct the last movie in the Unbreakable trilogy. Glass concludes the three movie story arch with a bang.
The start of Glass sees David Dunn (Bruce Willis) working with his son, Joseph Dunn (Spencer Treat Clark), to rid his city of crime. They’re working in a security business during the day. During the night, David goes out to fight crime as The Overseer. Their next big target is Kevin Wendall Crumb and his many personalities (James McAvoy), the main villain from Split.

However, for those that want to improve themselves, they know things need to change. And sometimes you need to break yourself to improve yourself.
Writing those words were hard for me. I know breaking myself is not something that I find pleasurable. I’m sure you’re feeling the same way.
Whether it’s from feeling that you’re okay as you are or the discomfort change can bring, we so very often don’t want to change. We don’t want to struggle with the next step. And we don’t want the pain change can bring. Read more...
