In McDull, the Alumni, our protagonist has grown up. He is no longer the little boy who banters with his mates at school. How he wishes he could just go on bantering all day long with his mates at the renowned Flower on the Spring Field Kindergarten. But that is not to be. Like all grown-ups, he has to grapple with harsh reality. McDull and his mates are scattered all over the place. Each one of them has to find his or her own path. In each of their hearts, they know they have failed. Meanwhile, life goes on in the kindergarten. Someone strums a guitar and the pupils chime in to the song: Puff the magic dragon, lives by the sea… A dragon lives forever, but not so little boys. With hindsight, McDull believes this could well be the maxim of the Flower on the Spring Field Kindergarten alumni.

Stephen P (ca) wrote: Unbreakable is one of M. Night Shyamalan's earliest films and i'd say that after just seeing it for the first time it is now my favourite film by the Shyamalan. Thanks to the success of his most recent film 'Split' i thought i'd go back and watch what is the one film of his i haven't seen (post 'The Sixth Sense') and complete the collection. The film follows David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and his mysterious interactions with Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson) after surviving a devastating train crash that left him completely unscathed. Having seen his other films i knew more or less what i was getting into..... or so i thought. This movie blew me away with how much i loved it, from start to finish i was hooked on the characters, the story, the mystery, and the wonderful filmmaking by Shyamalan. It grips you early on with intrigue and holds a high level of suspense the whole way through with twists and turns that make for a very original and remarkably unpredictable story. One thing that works perfectly for this film is the pacing, it runs at a very slow and calculating pace throughout and it never once veers from that. It takes its time revealing bits of information to you and letting you really take everything in and piece things together before moving on which is fantastically executed. You never get bored in this time as the film has your mind constantly running.... What is the meaning of this? How does that connect? What is going to happen next?The fact that Shyamalan gives you time to wonder and to make connections within the story and between the characters makes the experience so much greater. Also despite the fact that the pace never quickens the suspense is still gradually building throughout to the point where you just cannot look away as it sucks you into the film. Being one of Shyamalan's earliest films it was really cool to see how he filmed this and notice the similarities between some of his newer releases. There some greatly filmed scenes with long takes (the amazing opening scene), sweeping camera shots, and other unique actions he does with the camera that are just very cool and beautiful to admire. It just cements the fact that when it comes to a unique and awesome style of directing Shyamalan is definitely high on that list, despite his many obstacles. The score also is incredible, it is one that captures the feeling of a mystery thriller full of suspense and also that of a modern comic book movie. The blending of these two creates something unique to this film and a relationship where you instantly tie this music to this film the instant you hear it. This is a score i want to go and listen to now that the movie is over. Willis and Jackson are great here in this film and their back and forth conversations are like the rest of the film very tension filled and so damn interesting. The way these characters who in many ways are polar opposites interact over the course of the film is fantastic to watch. As they both learn more about each other you see how their relationship changes and i won't go into it too much more to avoid spoilers. The supporting roles here from Dunn's wife (Robin Wright) and his son (Spencer Treat Clark) have some decent strong moments and serve their purpose very well. I will say though the only thing i would definitely change about this film is the ending, i don't hate the ending but it think just extending it another 5 minutes max would have been very useful to tie everything together a little more tightly and wrap it all up. So in the end i was surprised by how much i loved this movie, i thought i might like it as the general consensus is that it is a good film and seeing as though i like Shyamalan's other successful films this would be no different. But i never expected i would like it so much that it would be sitting at the top as my favourite film from the Shyamalan himself. If you are a fan of Shyamalan's other good films (so pre 2004 and post 2015) then i would say definitely check this one out especially as his next film is going to be a sequel to this amazing movie.9.3/10

Leon B (de) wrote: Review:I quite enjoyed the beginning of this movie because of its unique content but it goes downhill once the main character starts to ask questions about his past. It's about a man who inherits a apartment building in France from his dead father, only to find out that the building comes with a tenant who is contracted to stay in the apartment until she dies. On top of that, he has to pay the tenant rent to stay in the apartment because it truly isn't his until she dies, due to the French law. WEIRD! Anyway, I thought that the movie was going to be about Kline trying to get the lady out of the apartment but it turned out to be about his relationship with his dead father and the tenants daughter. It was quite witty at the beginning and I enjoyed the fresh concept but it lost it's way after a while and Kline just seemed to be walking around in a daze. Maggie Smith gives a top class performance, along with Kline who I'm a big fan off but the storyline seemed to dry up in the second half of the film and the love story took away the unique element at the beginning. There were some emotional scenes from Kline, after he finds out the truth about his father and why he didn't feel love him when he was young but I personally didn't think that the director got the mixture quite right. It was good to see Kline back on the big screen and the chemistry between Maggie Smith and Kline was brilliant but the problem is with the storyline which turns out to be a bit predictable after a while. Average!Round-Up:I always wondered why I haven't seen Kevin Kline in more movies and after watching the bonus bits on the DVD, I found out that he is known in Hollywood as Kevin Decline due to the amount of movies he has turned down. Some of his choices haven't been that terrific, like the disappointing remake of the Pink Panther and the rom-com Darling Companion but that doesn't take away his great acting skills and his ability to always make me laugh. Personally, I think that is what worked in the beginning of this movie and it was good to see him back on top form alongside Maggie Smith who seems to be going from strength to strength at the age of 80. She was great in the Harry Potter franchise and with some top performances in Downtown Abbey and The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, she doesn't look like she is going to be slowing down anytime soon. Basically, the cast and concept wasn't the problem with this movie. It was the bad execution from the director who could have done better with the second half of the movie.Budget: N/AWorldwide Gross: $9millionI recommend this movie to people who are into their comedy/dramas about a man who inherits a house in France from his dead father, only to find out that it comes with a tenant who can't leave until she is dead. 4/10

The dialogues were straight out of his book and the theme was spot on, existentialism and sex with dry humour. I like how between the beginning and the end of the movie, there was not much change in the "physical" world but a major change in the character development. It could have all just been a dream and yet make that believable an impact. I loved the pace. It was building, then engrossing, then tense, and then abrupt. There were moments where I was pretty tense in a movie that doesn't have or need to have that kind of stuff that mystery or thriller movies have. It was refreshing to see him still make movies that can make you think as well as make you enjoy. Salute!
