    loads of people seemed to love split for some reason - it wasn't as bad as some of his films but i thought it was pretty stupid, with some completely unbelievable characters who made stupid decisions throughout the film.

    It was also extremely offensive to anyone with any experience of mental illness.

    I liked Split, one of his stronger efforts for my money, McAvoy is obviously centre stage and hamming it up to great effect.

    I've enjoyed many of Shyamalan's movies though, The Happening, The Last Airbender and After Earth were meh at best. But the first 4 and Split were all solidly enjoyable.

    Just watched the latest trailer on this again.

    Shyamalan has been playing a very long game here. Some amazing films, some average and some pretty dire but he has clearly been creating a substantive lore and universe in which to set crossovers as the nostalgia peaks. Well bar the last airbender.

    It's crazy to think unbreakable is 18 years old.

    I liked sixth sense and loved unbreakable. But since then M Nights films have been pretty poor to say the least.

    I actually thought split was ok though. Had no idea it was connected to unbreakable?

    I'll keep an eye on glass, but I don't have high hopes....

    Hmm, I really can't remember it. Unless it was after the credits and I missed it.

    At the end of Split before the credits, Bruce Willis is sat in the diner watching the news about the Beast.

    I enjoyed Split, not everyone's cup of tea though, but looking forward to Glass.

    I loved Spit purely for the reason that we got an entire movie dedicated to the villans background

    I suppose I should get round to watching Split. I enjoyed Unbreakable and this looks interesting.

    Time to borrow my mates collection of M. Night Showaddywaddy collection.

    Makes me even more eager to see it! Probably going to be outstanding. Early screenings are wasted on critics. Let some fans see it early instead and reward the people who actually enjoy movies and pay to see them.
