Oh my god this movie rocks. I saw it for the first time yesterday. It's definitely a scare your pants off movie. I was shaking in my boots (well, socks really) when Ivy entered the woods and was confronted by a creature. I was shocked to find out that they were in a wildlife preserve in modern-day times! The village looked like the 19th century way of life, but just through ther woods there's modern-day living. Awesome movie. 10/10 in my book.

I thought it was a pretty good movie, but I don't think it was quite on par with Shyamalan's other movies. I would still recommend seeing it though.

I look forward to seeing whatever movie he comes out with next.

Does anyone know what Unbreakable was about? That was another M. Night movie.

Didn't know that Unbreakable was an M. Night Shyamalan movie, but thinking back, I think I remember that it was.

I'll tell you the basics of the movie. If you want me to tell you the details, I can put it in a spoiler tag.

The movie is basically like a real-life superhero deal. There is this character played by Bruce Willis, who never gets sick or gets hurt and is really strong. He can also see what evil people have done when he touches someone. He doesn't know this at first, but a guy played by Samuel Jackson helps him find his "powers" out. It's quite a good movie if you want to see it.

Unbreakable is a great movie. I'm not sure why it didn't do as well as his other movies have.

Yep.

As for the rest of the movie, Star Fox, I'll get on that when I get back from running some errands.

Sorry for being late. Those errands I mentioned obviosly took only that day.

Anyway, here are the details of the movie Unbreakable:

Spoiler: Show

The movie starts with Samuel L. Jackson's character at birth, when his mother finds out that he has a disease (I'll get the name later) where your bones are brittle. Throughout his childhood, the kid takes a liking to comic books and his mother uses that to encourage him outside. He especially takes a liking to how the villians are drawn, and this fact will play an important point in the end. Anyway, at some point in his life, he begins to believe that there are really superheroes, but they have not been drawn out, or that the superheroes don't even know that they are superheroes. He also clings to a philosophy that the arch villian of a superhero is the exact opposite of the superhero; his powers and attributes are the opposite of the hero's. This fact will also play a role in the end.

Now enters Bruce Willis' character, who is on a train that crashes. Everyone is killed in the wreck while he survives without a scratch. Samuel L. Jackson's character learns of this and starts to contact Bruce Willis about this. Willis is reluctant at first, and so is his wife, but his son believes it right away. Jackson also mentions 2 other tragic events he studied where everyone died; a building fire and a, I believe, a plane crash (I'm not sure). Anyway, Willis is reluctant to believe that he has superpowers but Jackson does bring a fact out of Willis that Willis has never been sick nor hurt.

In the movie, Willis works as a security guard but is unhappy, in one scene, while with Jackson, he mention that he knows that someone has a gun with them ("he says he has a feeling"). Jackson pursues the character, but breaks his legs trying to walk down some stairs, but sees the gun in the guy's back pocket, and the gun is exatcly like what Willis described to him.

Also, in the course of the movie, Willis' son starts sort of experimenting in his father to see if he really is a superhero. In one scene, Willis' son points a gun at Willis threatening to shoot him to see if he would deflect it, but his son was talked out of it, and Willis and his wife get inflamed at Jackson. In a later scene, though, while Willis is lifting weights (bench-pressing I think is what it was called - lifting the large bar of weights w/ hand), his son begins adding more weight to his bar, and Willis, to his surprise, lifts them without problem. Initially, his son tricked him into lifting more weight, but afterward, they both find everything they can to add more wieght for him to lift. He goes from lifting 200+ lbs to about 500 + lbs that night.

Willis does recall an incident in his childhood, though, where he almost drowned in a pool. Jackson states that it was Willis' weakness, every hero has one. This was still earlier in the movie, so he is reluctant at first to still believe this fact.

Finally, Willis starts to believe this. He begins to look at people and see evil deeds that they've done, like a sixth sense. He pays particular attention to a janitor that has broken and entered into a house and killed the parents of this family and has their kids bound in a closet somewhere. That night, he rescues the kids and defeats the janitor. In the battle, he is thrown into a pool and almost drowns but the kids that he freed earlier on rescue him, and, again, he defeats the janitor no problem. His story makes the newspapers and, for the first time, Willis feels happy and feels like that he has a purpose in life.

He later meets Jackson at a gallery affair at an art museum Jackson owns. Not stated earlier, Jackson collects paintings of superhero comics and scenes. He again takes particular attention to how the villians are drwawn, and he is very serious about his art, and does not like it being given to people who don't appreciate it, as is shown in one scene of the movie where he gets mad at this guy for trying to buy one of Jackson's paintings for his son, not to really appreciate the art itself. Anyway, at the affair, Willis thanks Jackson for helping him find the superhero in him, but, when they shake hands, Willis's sense alerts him to the fact that Jackson caused the three accidents mentioned earlier in an attempt to find the superhero. Willis then notices bomb drawings and what not in Jackson's office where he is at. Jackson finally brings the superhero-archvillian contradition back up, stating that people call him the glass man (or Mr glass). Thus the movie ends, but not before stating that Jackson's character is committed to an insane asylum.

That's it. The whole movie to the best of my knowledge. I may have missed some stuff, but that may give you a reason to watch it as well. It's good.
