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.

James Corden’s ‘Carpool Karaoke’ Gets A Spin-Off, Apple Music Gets A Hit

Apple has yet to announce who the new host will be, and although Corden won’t be crooning this time around, he will serve as the series’ executive producer along with Ben Winston.
