This week John and I completely go overboard in our fandom of M. Night Shyamalan!
First, Dhani saw Glass and talks about her love of Unbreakable and how Split and Glass have worked into the story. Honestly, she mostly talks about Shyamalan and her love of his filmaking.
Next, John and Dhani finally saw Bohemian Rhapsody. They both love Queen, but came out of this biopic with strong differences of opinion regarding the movie.
Next, Dhani saw The Nutcracker and The Four Realms. She enjoyed it much more than she thought, so that was a pleasant surprise. And the final movie Dhani saw is the Christmas movie, Anna and the Apocalypse. She loves musicals more than anything, so it’s tough for Dhani to not enjoy this movie… even though it’s campy, the music was good enough to carry through.
Moving on to TV, Dhani wanted to just touch on the new season of True Detective that just started. She really liked the first two episodes and it seems that this third season is already better than the second one was.
And finally, instead of an Actors’ Corner this week, we decided to do a Directors’ Corner and discuss the movies of M. Night Shyamalan. Stick with us in this section. We are huge fans of his, so we really get into details… but hopefully it’s fun listening!
