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

MOVIE REVIEW
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. Like The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable was a mystery only this time, the story featured the lone survivor of a train crash who left the accident without a scratch on him and an incredibly fragile, wheelchair-bound, comic book enthusiast which appeared to be the polar opposite.

THEME PARKS
Located in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is the place to find the “world’s largest fill in the blank.” Anything that can be built will be built larger here. Next Wednesday, we can add “indoor theme park” to the list. IMG Worlds of Adventure theme park will open its doors and welcome guests to four different themed areas: Lost Valley – Dinosaur Adventure, Cartoon Network, Marvel, and IMG Boulevard. Spanning 1.5 million square feet, IMG Worlds of Adventure can hold up to 30,000 guests a day and developers are hoping to see 4.5 million visitors within the park’s first year.

Lost Valley is home to 69 moving and “breathing” dinosaurs lead by Barosaurus who stands over 52 feet tall. According to Hindustan Times, it took IGM five years to bring the large critters to life. Each is built with a thin layer of shiny silicone rubber to help bring the illusion to life. You’ll find the Velociraptor roller coaster in Lost Valley as well. This crazy coaster features four loops (the largest one spans 105 feet) and reaches speed over 62 MPH. For those not quite ready for dino-sized thrills, they will enjoy the Dino Carousel that features friendlier versions of dinosaurs for little ones to ride on.
