The sun is starting to come out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend your afternoon in a movie theater! Most of these movies are the ones you are going to forget about when they get nominated for Oscars later (remember what happened with Zootopia?), so keep your eyes peeled! Here is everything coming up in the month of March.
It’s hard to trust in the director who, just two years ago, tried to convince us that the height of horror was two crazy grandparents terrorizing a little kid who likes to rap and a girl who is filming her life story at, what, twelve? (And I’m trying not to spoil too much of The Visit (2015) here, just in case some of you still want to see it) So when M. Night Shyamalan announced his next project would be about a man with multiple personalities living in his body, I was skeptical. It sounded like a good idea, looked like it might be remotely scary, but considering everything after The Sixth Sense (1999), I have felt let down one too many times. Split finally begins to bridge the gap that Shyamalan has left in his career, proving that he does, in fact, know what he’s doing. While there are many elements of the film that are overdone and shakily performed, one great performance and some truly excellent camera work have put Shyamalan back in a place where I think I can respect his talent.
