Mock Squid Soup: Unbreakable: October 10, 2014

The Armchair Squid and I are once again hosting an installment of Mock Squid Soup: A Film Society.  Each month, on the second Friday, we shall host a bloghop devoted to a particular movie.  We invite others to watch the same film and post their own reviews.  This month's movie is... 

Currently #92 on my flickchart list
I hadn't seen this since it was in theaters in fall of 2000.  In my memory, it was one of the first superhero movies in the current wave of decent superhero movies but I hadn't viewed it since.

I was lucky enough to get to see this a few weekends back with The Squid and our mutual friend.  I enjoyed the twists and turns, as well as the final reveal.  If viewed separately from M. Night Shyamalan's other films, especially "The Sixth Sense", it is a decent thriller with some neat superhero under/over tones.

It was also the movie, with this viewing, where I realized I have now seen enough movies with The Squid that I can no longer keep track of what we've seen together easily.  I know I slept through our first ("The Pirates! Band of Misfits") and he dozed during our second ("The Avengers") but after that, I had to start writing them down!

I know that really isn't a discussion nor a review but it's been a rough week!

Head over to the Squid's site for November's sign-up list tomorrow.  

The next feature on Friday, November 14th will be... 

Space Battleship Yamato


  1. Improve the week: watch the movie again!

  2. I don't own a ton of movies but I own Unbreakable because it's good enough to watch more than once.

  3. I remember that I liked this flick and my son didn't. If it was on Netflix, and I would have jumped on the bandwagon for Mock Soup!

  4. Simple and sweet works for me. I hope next week goes better for you.

  5. I'm glad we both stayed awake this time. I also love that Musketeer #3 is so excited about our next installment!


Why, hello there!
