- RUNNNING TURTLE

- THE CHASER
- THE YELLOW SEA
D: M. Night Shyamalan (Signs, The Sixth Sense).
S: James McAvoy, Bruce Willis, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Paulson, Anya Taylor-Joy.
This is how you make a superhero franchise. The final part to UNBREAKABLE and SPLIT is a gripping conclusion. Cinematography, direction, score, etc. combine in exhilarating fashion. The only quibble: If only the action sequences went on longer.
M. Night Shyamalan movies ranked, worst ➡️ best:
THE LAST AIRBENDER
LADY IN THE WATER
THE SIXTH SENSE
It is actor Kevin Costner’s birthday. His top 5 films:
- A PERFECT WORLD
- DANCES WITH WOLVES
- MOLLY’S GAME
- THE UNTOUCHABLES
D: Adam McKay (The Big Short, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, The Other Guys, Step Brothers, Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby, Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy).
S: Christian Bale, Amy Adams, Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Jesse Plemons, Bill Camp, Tyler Perry.
The first fantastic film of 2019. The team behind 'The Big Short', which examined the financial crash of 2008, turns to government. They make another doozy that is both laugh-out-loud funny and blood boiling. Christian Bale is extraordinary as Vice President Dick Cheney.
It is actor Kang-ho Song’s birthday. His top 5 films:
- JOINT SECURITY AREA
- MEMORIES OF MURDER
- SECRET SUNSHINE
- THE GOOD THE BAD THE WEIRD

To evaluate a film
I am well aware how difficult it is to make a film, put on a stage play, create a television show, write a novel, let alone make something of note. (That appreciation doesn’t stop me from having high standards though.)
