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.

This Day in Pop Culture for July 21

Christian singer Brandon Heath was born on July 21, 1978 and married on May 25, 2014.

Brandon Heath is Born

It was on this day that Brandon Heath was born in 1978. The contemporary Christian singer and musician’s first album, Early Stuff, was released in 2004. Since then, Heath has produced five other albums which help nominate him for a few Grammys and winning a few Dove Awards.  In 2008, Heath spent time as the worship pastor at The Woodlands United Methodist Church in Texas for about a year, but later moved back to Nashville. Perhaps his most popular song is "I'm Not Who I Was" which became a #1 single that stayed on top of Billboard's Hot Christian Songs chart for several weeks. The song speaks about how he learned to forgive a certain person in his life, but for many years, it remained a mystery on who that was. More recently, Heath disclosed to audiences that the song was a dedication to this step mother. In May 25, 2014, he was married. Sorry girls.
