    YES. Absolutely reeks of Bakshi but in a very good way. Awesome score, awesome cast, gory as fuck. What more could I ask for?

    ★★½

    "Old" is not the movie I wanted it to be, although I'm not especially angry at the movie it ended up being. It has a really messy first act, wherein Shyamalan poorly juggles a massive ensemble of characters and manages to put out some of the clunkiest dialogue of his career. Once the ball starts rolling and that huge ensemble gets whittled down to a more manageable size, however, things begin to improve, and his remaining actors get an opportunity…

    I mean, it’s timely, that’s for sure. But it’s also a movie that struggles to decide what story it wants to tell. Is this the story of Bill O’Neal? Because if so, the character of O’Neal is underwritten, leaving stanfield, a fine actor, with little in the way of guidance as to how to show us who this man really was, what drove him to do the things he did for as long…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    How much you enjoy M. Night Shyamalan's "Glass" really depends on how engrossed you were with the two films that preceded it. I enjoyed "Unbreakable" just fine, but found "Split" to be gimmicky and shallow. I wasn't clamoring for a reunion between David Dunn and Mr. Glass, but after seeing the preview, my interest was piqued, if only mildly.

    First, I just want to say that Mike Gioulakis could shoot the inside of a dishwasher for 2 hours and I…
