Why does Bruce Willis suck now?

    Didn't see a thread for the Willis Comedy Central Roast. Edwin Norton nailed it, never knew him to be funny - and odds are he wrote it himself.

    Agreed. Norton stole the show. Otherwise, the rest of the comedians were pretty disappointing, other than Dom Irrera’s closing remarks. This is when the world truly misses the late, great Greg Giraldo...

    Glass sucks. 36% on Rotten Tomatoes. Making gabillions of money, though.

    Critics are trashing it; audiences are enjoying it. Objectively it isn't as good as Split (I haven't seen Unbreakable) and has some meh moments, but it isn't trash like the critics are making it out to be.

    I kinda enjoyed it. There were parts that were good and plenty more that were lousy. They got right into it in the first 20 minutes, then it really slowed down. All the stuff in the mental institution was ridiculous, i.e., are there only three people working there and only one most of the time? I did enjoy McEvoy and Willis the most. The rest, meh.

    So what was the "supertwisty" ending so I don't have to see it?

    There's a spoiler here ...

    1) For most of the movie, David Dunn, The Beast, and Mr. Glass are locked into a mental institution. Sarah Paulsen's character is a psychiatrist grilling them about their supposed powers, trying to convince them they are deluded and don't have such powers. All that is rather stupid, because it seems like any of them could just perform feats of strength to prove they have the powers. Anyway, at the end it is revealed that the psychiatrist is actually part of a secret society that rids the world of troublesome superheroes, but they are trying a new technique of convincing them they aren't superheroes (or villains).
    2) Which doesn't work, so they kill all three. Yes, the three main chracters from the movies die.
    3) And then the second twist is that the psychiatrist realizes Mr. Glass set everyone up and everything that was done -- including all the fights and feats of strengths and killings -- was recorded and is now being broadcast on the Internet. Everyone in the world will see it and realize that maybe they can be a superhero, so they will be inspired to become one.
    4) No one could figure any of this out beforehand because there were no clues that this was the actual story.

    Makes about as much sense as The Village.
