I didn't see Morgan, but I'm guessing she somehow got a raw deal in that one as well.

Oh you know what she is in Barry the netflix movie about Obama during his college years and can confirm she is not a prisoner in that movie.

Well, I'm sure that one was a welcomed change of pace for her parents.

Thanks Obama.

Saw Split the other day because I couldn't keep away from spoilers any longer. Good Lord.... I have no idea how they kept that secret but my jaw hit the goddamn floor during that last scene. I was as low on Night as could be for a long time, but Split as a movie on its own was very good and that last scene just took my excitement to levels I haven't felt in a long time.

The craziest part about it was that everyone expected a twist yet nobody saw that coming at all. Amazing work.

Actually, he's done that a bunch...and those movies were pretty turrible


He's had a bunch of movies with no twist? We must have a different meaning on what a bunch means.

edited to add I don't like almost any M Night movie so it's a pretty pointless conversation for me to be participating in.


So you didn't like The Sixth Sense or Unbreakable?! :shock:

I think there is a very, very strong case that Unbreakable is the best superhero movie ever made. And Almost 10 years before they became the norm.

Correct, I didn't like either of those movies

Wow, interesting. Then I can see why you don't like him, ha.

The cinematography in those two movies is world class.

I hope poor Anya Taylor-Joy gets to do comedy or voice a fluffy animation movie soon.

Morgan was high comedy. Laughed an awful lot

Just watch the Maysles doc Salesman instead. It's the greatest. Seriously though, I've been looking as well and haven't found it yet.

Had an absolute blast at John Wick: Chapter Two. If you liked the first one you're in for a treat. Can't wait to see it again and can't wait for Chapter Three.

^^ Nice! Excited to see Wick 2!

Lols at Jack Nicholson getting Paramount to secure rights to a Toni Erdmann remake. WTF.
