Episode #287 – Glass

We took a break from live show prep in Portland to return to our beloved M. Night Shyamalan and the last film of his surprise trilogy, Glass. Meanwhile Stuart drags the Philly skyline, Dan points out the problem with exhaustive rule books, and Elliott takes a brave stand against sexist comics store clerks.

    It amuses me that Samuel L. Jackson’s character Roland from Jumper would approve of the fate of his character Elijah from this movie.

  2. Bobby D says:

    Philly remembers, floppers.

  3. Peri says:

    Alien is the perfect film? Not The Taking of Pelham 123?

    (And, forgive me, the war film remark was Truffaut.)

  4. Vardulon says:

    Here’s a low-bitrate version for people with data caps –

    Philly notes-

    It used to be that by tradition no building could be taller than the William Penn statue on top of City Hall, but that tradition was broken in the early 80s, ushering in years of sports failures (commonly called the curse of Billy Penn). When the new tallest building in Philadelphia, Comcast Center, was being built in 2008 they borrowed Billy Penn to hang out at the top while they put the final few beams in place. Then the Phillies won the World Series. Coincidence? Yes.

    Utz would count as appropriate snack food, since they’re from PA. You’ve got enough, New York, stop trying to take our stuff. The right answer is Tastycake.

    Roast Pork is the name of the sandwich Dan couldn’t think of.

  6. I was assuming that the Shyamalaniverse didn’t have superhero movies, the way that most zombie movies operate in a world where there are no zombie movies and people don’t know the rules about how to deal with the dead. Then we could have a sequel to this movie where the stuidos fight a war with the Conspiracy to make superhero movies.
