Media Roots Radio: Glass Film Review, the Unbreakable Trilogy & the Disneyfication of Culture w/ Leslie Lee III

Robbie Martin starts the episode having a discussion with fellow podcaster Leslie Lee III of Struggle Session about the ‘Disneyfication’ of pop culture and why Disney absorbing the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars is actually a bad thing for the future of entertainment culture. They also discuss the current state of super hero films dominating Hollywood and movie critics being brainwashed into loving them, especially ones released by Disney.

In the second half of the episode Abby Martin joins Leslie and Robbie for a long form analysis of the Unbreakable trilogy by M. Night Shyamalan leading into an in-depth review of the last installment in the trilogy: ‘Glass’. Abby, Robbie and Leslie conclude with the question: did M. Night Shyamalan make the best super hero film (Unbreakable) and best super hero trilogy of all-time on a far lower budget than Marvel Studios?

WARNING: SPOILERS of Glass start at 1:34:00~ and SPOILERS of Split and Unbreakable start at 51:00~
