It Chapter 2: Thoughts & Spoilers

It Chapter 2

Directed By: Andy Muschietti

Stephen King is well-known for not always sticking the landings as they say. It is probably a big part of that. The film makes fun of that as well teasing writer Bill that no one likes his endings.

At Least It’s Not Apocalypse

Glass

Directed By: M. Night Shyamalan

Grade: C

A question about Glass- where did he get that suit? I mean his character has been in the psych ward since Unbreakable. He’s supposed to be exceedingly highly sedated throughout this movie but then he shows up in this shiny suit that just screams, “I need a lair and a hairless cat to pet,” and no one says anything? I suppose his mother could have brought it but still…

Seems odd.

Atomic Blonde

Directed by: David Leitch

Grade: C+

Charlize Theron is taking this action heroine stuff super seriously. She plays an MI6 agent sent to Berlin right before the Wall comes down in order to find a missing dossier full of super secret confidential information that will expose all the spies in the field and put their lives in danger.

I feel like that was a James Bond thing once. Why does this stuff keep getting written down in one place?
