Watching mopey Bruno wrestle around with some shirtless guy.. I dunno. Wacky twist though!

Ditto. After the build up and he question of "what can belief do to your body? How far can it be pushed?" And knowing we were in a Shyamalan film, I was really hoping that the Beast would look like the drawings of the Beast we were shown. That the Horde was truly something new, and the Beast personality didn't just make him walk differently or sound differently - it truly transformed him. They even set it up with the need for one personality to have insulin, saying it changed his body chemistry. Just push it to the next level and have him be a giant spikey rage monster.

Maybe now he's got a bigger budget they'll give us the more fantastical Beast they were hinting at this time.

I watched this a few nights ago, and was pretty underwhelmed with McAvoy. As one reviewer noted, he makes most of his personalities sound like their from Brooklyn.

 

Anyone else think it was a mistake having Kevin's psychiatrist be a significant part of the storyline? I think it would have been more interesting to have the psychiatrist be one his personalities.

Camera tricks seemed to imply he'd gotten taller. Plus being able to crawl on walls and take a shotgun blast.

Seemed right in line with Shyamalan's understated approach. I suspect even a larger budget wouldn't alter that.

fwiw, I liked the fact that The Beast ended up being a real superpowered being, but not in any over the top kind of way. Just a little bit extranormal, can climb walls and bend steel and shrug off a shotgun blast, but with the addition of being super fucking crazy. Now that is a scary bad guy.

Feel nervous and excited. Want to make a small intricate film with a big idea at its center. #Glass

Good, glad Shyamalan isn't going for some epic capper. Keep that Unbreakable intimacy!

post #408 of 415
Yeah, I love that he's going small with big ideas. It's perfect.

Um, just curious but what would be an over the top superpower to you here though - especially compared to the shotgun-imperviousness?

What he really wanted was a world destroying portal in the sky.  Only then would he be happy.

well most superheros have flashier stuff like Superman's heat vision or whatever, but yeah I guess being able to shrug off a shotgun is pretty major now that I think about it.
