Shyamalan's 'Glass' is Engaging Almost Until the End

I don’t think anyone will deny that M. Night Shyamalan is a great storyteller. He initially proved that with the release of The Sixth Sense. The symbolism of the color red, the odd scenes that made very little sense until the end of the movie and of course, the amazing twist that nobody saw coming. That incredible twist has almost been the director’s undoing. Since 1999, not one of his other movie’s endings have had the same impact, but he continues to try.

In 2000, Mr. Shyamalan hoped that lightening would strike twice with Unbreakable which also starred Bruce Willis.

While not a national holiday, today should be celebrated because 63 years ago, the very first Peanuts comic strip was printed in national newspapers today. Ironically, the gang don't look any older and they aren't going away anytime soon.

The very first Peanuts comic strip appeared on October 2, 1950 and the very last was published on February 13, 2000. Charles M. Schulz, the creator of Charlie Brown and friends, passed away on the day before. However, many newspapers continue to run "classic" Peanuts comic strips every day. Now, fans can take advantage of the comics in digital form.

and good 'ol Charlie Brown himself.
Many of the Classic Peanuts collections are as close as your iOS device. For the first time, iVerse Media is providing fans ten collections of the strips in digital form including "The Great Pumpkin" (how timely) and "Good O' Charlie Brown."

But you haven't seen anything yet. In two years, Peanuts will reach another milestone of 65 years with an all-new movie. 

Almost a year ago, Iconix Brand Group, Inc. announced that Peanuts Worldwide would release a Peanuts feature film on November 25, 2015. This also coincides with the 50th anniversary of the "A Charlie Brown Christmas" TV special. Written and produced by Schulz' son, Craig, Twentieth Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios have been chosen to produce and animate the new film. In the word's of Lucy, "Don't mess it up blockhead!"
