Here is my review for “Split“. M. Night Shyamalan is back again and everyone acts like they hate him still. Haha He can’t get a break after making “The Happening”. Okay so this film starts off with 3 female teens leaving a party. They get into a car and then get kidnapped by James McAvoy. Now they are in some basement warehouse somewhere with trapped with his ass. Shit gets nuttier when he starts coming in acting like a shit load of different people each time. He has split personalities! Get it! Some are nice and some are assholes. He eventually starts talking about a new personality that is about to pop off that is a beast or demon or something. So fuck that! They have got to get out of there. Meanwhile he is hanging out with some old lady therapist that is trying to help him. She really is trying too, but he crazy. In the end the beast shit hits the fan and personalities go ape shit too. Now here comes a cool twist I didn’t see coming. Yayyyyyyy! I love that ending. WHAT THE FUCK!
Okay so I had fun watching this film. James sold all 23 personalities, it was like a mental orgy up in there. He was creepy and even funny at times too. The main girl Anya Taylor-Joy (the girl from “The Witch”) was great and I hope she keeps doing horror movies. She has a great horror stare. There were some weird flashbacks with her character that seemed a little long-winded, but I get it, you needed to know she was a survivor etc. I love that M. Night always get supernatural and weird cuz that’s what I want to see. It would have been nice for the old lady to help him though, like people with mental disorders aren’t monsters but can be helped etc. Meanwhile the endings reveal was great and made me want to watch another movie of M. Nights again ASAP! I loved that. It was fun. So if you want to see a fun, creepy, weird, twisty movie then this is for you. If you hate all of M. Night’s movies then you will probably hate this one too. So skip it, or if you have hang ups about him then skip it. Some people hate that he has twist endings.
A. James McAvoy was great in this movie and he sold all his parts.
Work it girl.
B. Anya Taylor-Joy was great in this and I love her long ass stares in movies.
Here she is in THE WITCH too.
C. Here is a list of M. Night Shyamalan‘s films/TV. I guess he really got a raw deal. Many directors have things they love to do in their films that make them “their” films. You know when it’s a John Carpenter film etc., because they all have a filmmaking style. M. Night has his twist endings and people hate him for it for some reason. They roll their eyes it. I mean I guess he just love Twilight Zone endings or whatever. Give the guy a break. Shit he has now made 7 things that I like and 4 I didn’t.
The Good: 7
The Bad: 4
D. Betty Buckley gave it her all.
F. His next movie is Labor of Love– A widower embarks on a cross-country trip on foot to prove his love for his late wife.
