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. 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.

Iconic ‘Brady Bunch’ House May Be Torn Down

One of the most well-known houses in America (though many have never entered its doors for real) is not only up for sale, but one of the prospective buyers is thinking of mowing it down. The house, located at 11222 Dilling Street, Studio City, CA was once the home of Mike and Carol Brady or at least the outside of it was. From 1969 to 1974, the exterior of the house was shown in the TV series, but not the inside. In fact, the inside looks nothing like the TV version which was filmed on a studio soundstage. (You can see photos of the inside of the home at Zillow.

This is the first time that the Brady Bunch house has been up for sale since the current owners bought it in 1973. Unlike the show, it features two bedrooms with three bathrooms and has two master suites. It is speculated that it is the second-most photographed house in the U.S. after the White House. The house is listed for $1.85 million and while the current owners are hoping that whoever purchases will preserve the house, at least one potential buyer is thinking of uprooting it. Stay tuned.
