The Movie Breakdown Episode 108 Podcast: M. Night Shyamalan Returns to His Roots with 'The Visit', and Robert Redford and Nick Nolte are Great Company in Subpar 'A Walk in the Woods'
After being three weeks away, Scott and I return to the cinemas to sample some of 2015's latest offering. Speaking of big returns, we review M. Night Shyamalan's latest horror-thriller in the found footage scary old people movie, The Visit. Will this be his chance to finally reclaim some past glory and prove himself to be the talented filmmaker that was evident in Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs? I also review the new adult-centric comedy starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte, A Walk in the Woods, and then we review another 2015 found footage thriller, Creep. We also talk about the state of found footage and what is needed to make that type of style effective. We deviate a little bit from movies as well as I talk about Everett's first week at school and we celebrate the 30th birthday of Super Mario Brothers.
As always if you love the show then please spread the word.
