Rewatched Unbreakable last night in preparation of seeing Glass today. Unbreakable was better than I remembered it to be with some underrated cinematography.
As for Glass: I thoroughly enjoyed it up to the cloverleaf twist. Highly entertaining and James McAvoy as Kevin Wendell Crumb/The Horde was just as spectacular as he was in Split. Ultimately, Glass was the equivalent of blowing up a balloon, only to have all the air escape it whilst sounding like a whoopee cushion.
I would also like to take a moment to use this thread as a soapbox as to why independent theaters are awesome.
Last week, I went to a Fathom Events screening at an amc. My 2D ticket, large popcorn, and large beverage cost me approximately $32.
At the independent theater I go to, on Black Friday, I purchased a refillable bucket of popcorn that gets me free refills through the end of 2019. That bucket cost the same as my popcorn/drink combo at amc. So my ticket/36oz beverage at the independent cost me $9. The independent also has a full bar. Which means I could have gotten a beer with my ticket and soft drink for 1/2 what I paid at amc.
My amc seat had less available legroom than when I fly coach, while I sat in a leather recliner at the independent.
The closest theater to my house is an amc at a 10-minute drive. The independent is 30 minutes away.
The independent has a free-to-play arcade.
The independent is themed to an old French courtyard.
