Director M. Night Shyamalan built his career around twists. It’s really his calling card, and for his latest film, Old, he’s not being coy with the biggest twist; he’s just not embracing it, either.
The rainy days of spring are here, and since it’s a very quiet week for new releases, I thought it was a fine opportunity to count down ten of my favorite rainy day movies. Which may make you wonder–what makes a great rainy day movie? If you ask me, it all comes down to rewatchability, brilliant casting, great writing, and off-the-wall stories.
New arrivals this week on DVD and Blu-ray include: the alien invasion film, Skyline, starring Eric Balfour; the farcical thriller The Tourist, with Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie; plus a look at How Do You Know and Yogi Bear.
Opening this weekend in theatres: Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie star in the action-comedy, The Tourist; and we take a fresh trip through C.S. Lewis’ fantastic world in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
