Okay. So. In order to enjoy this movie to the max, I strongly recommend you view the two prequels before heading to the cinema.
The very first movie in this trilogy (look at me assuming there’s only going to be three…) is Unbreakable. This came out 2000 and actually has a stronger connection to Glass than Split.
The second movie was Split, and this is important to understand the backstory of the ‘villain’ (James McAvoy) and the ‘brain box’ (Samuel L. Jackson).
I’m so excited about this film, I don’t know where to begin… Continue reading

Wow! Okay, I haven’t seen the first of the Captain America films (Captain America: The First Avenger) but I feel I still got the impact of the movie without much of the back story.
I haven’t seen the Avenger movies either (don’t kill me!).
Captain America: The Winter Soldier is about Captain America’s (AKA Steve Roger’s) past haunting him. He was once in the army where he lost a dear friend, Bucky. The flash backs are gorgeous; back to the 1940s. Steve Rogers is trying to fit into the modern day but the values of the people in charge don’t sit well with him… Continue reading
