THE ‘GLASS’ SCREENING - Movie of the Week
THE ‘GLASS’ SCREENING
For Hicksflicks.com, Friday, Jan. 18, 2019
The long-in-the-works superhero/horror movie “Glass” opens in theaters this weekend without much new competition, only a Japanese animated film.
“Glass” (PG-13). A low-key superhero (Bruce Willis) takes on a supervillain (James McAvoy) with 23 different personalities, unaware that the latter is being manipulated by yet another supervillain (Samuel L. Jackson). M. Night Shyamalan’s highly anticipated sequel combines two of his earlier films, “Unbreakable” (2000) and “Split” (2016). Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodward re-create their roles from the former and Anya Taylor-Joy is back from the latter. Sarah Paulson also co-stars.
“Dragon Ball Super: Broly” (PG, dubbed into English). Goku and Vegeta take on a Saiyan called Broly in this Japanese anime fantasy martial arts effort. This is actually the 20th in the “Dragon Ball” series, although anyone unfamiliar with the anime series may think this is a standalone picture.
