  1. Sixth Sense by Default…It’s the only Shyamalan movie I saw (besides The Last Airbender, which I like to pretend never happened, but did).

    Also, Star Wars:The Last Jedi. I wonder what happened to all the other Jedi.
    Canon:The Dark Side killed them all except one
    Sean Spicer:Donald Trump killed them with his enormous hands. Period.
    BnL agents:Those no good rebels had killed all the good serving Jedi.
    Anti BnL rebels:Forthright killed them all personally. Don’t trust him.
    Conspiracy Theorists:It was an inside job.

  2. Oscar Nominations…
    So many colorful entries and snubs and saying that the Nominations are rigged because certain people are snubbed in favor of other people.
    This year’s snubs include Amy Adams, Deadpool, and more as controversy appears when Suicide Squad is nominated for an Oscar. At least the Oscars are no longer so white.

  3. Hello, loved the episode and also since I haven’t been commenting in a few episodes I’ve watched more movies (well that’s just an excuse). I saw x men, x2, those were my first x men movies and I loved them I am a little hesitant on watching the last stand because I heard it’s really bad. I also saw secret life of pets, truly nothing special but I did love Kevin hart. And the magic school bus, it wasn’t as good as it was when I was six years old.
    I haven’t really seen any shaymalan movies but, john I really am going to prioritize seeing unbreakable. The whole thing about a shaymalan extended universe, at first glance sounds completely idiotic, but I believe it could work well because he could have more creative freedom and can’t have any marvel vs D.C. type debates, if it’s even sticking to superhero movies. Which is one the important things to say about this whole universe building thing I would really like it if it did other genres within the same universe . I have always viewed shaymalan as a bad director, but when looking at his recent and past works he really isn’t so bad.
