Glenn Hijacks Valentine's Day With Freaky Movie Review

Looking for a freaky way to spend Valentine's Day with your valentine? (No, it's not Fifty Shades Darker.) But there's another movie Glenn saw at the bequest of his wife.

"I was like, Manchester By The Sea? How about Lion?" She was like, No, I want to go to see Split," Glenn said Tuesday on radio.

Split is a film about three girls kidnapped by a man diagnosed with 23 distinct personalities ---and a frightful 24th emerging.

"That shows you have a good relationship," Co-host Stu Burguiere said.

"I know," Glenn agreed.

In theaters now, the suspense thriller is superbly acted by James McAvoy.

Enjoy the complimentary clip above or read the transcript below for details.

GLENN: It is Valentine's Day, which is a day I absolutely hate. I hate. I hate this day, and I hate New Year's Eve. There's too much pressure on these days

STU: Me too.

GLENN: Too much pressure.

STU: Pressure?

GLENN: Yes. Yes.

STU: Just a gift. You have to find the right perfect gift, or?

GLENN: Yeah. Yes. It's -- first of all, it's a made-up holiday.

STU: Yeah. Look, it's a nice excuse to have a nice night with your wife or your girlfriend. You know, you have -- maybe you give a little present. Whatever. But it's a B-list holiday. Let's be honest about it. It's a B-list holiday. You know, you can have a nice evening. Which is, you know, it's a nice maybe excuse for date night. But really, it's -- it's a B-list holiday.

GLENN: And if it was just an excuse for a great date night -- like Tania and I, we went on a date last night for Valentine's Day. We went and we watched -- what's the M. Night --

STU: To Split? You went to see Split on Valentine's Day?

PAT: On Valentine's Day.

GLENN: That was her choice.

STU: I've heard it was really good, by the way.

GLENN: I was like, "Manchester By The Sea. How about the Lion?" She was like, "No, I want to go to see Split."

STU: That's awesome.

JEFFY: Nice! That is awesome.

STU: That shows you have a good relationship.

GLENN: I know.

PAT: Was it good?

GLENN: It was really good. Except, M., stop.

PAT: Really?

JEFFY: Oh, boy.

STU: M.

GLENN: I call him M.

STU: Yeah.

GLENN: We're that close.

STU: Don't give anything away because I know obviously --

PAT: There is a twist.

GLENN: Stop. Stop. Stop.

JEFFY: It's been over 8,000 years.

GLENN: Stop, stop. Stop it.

PAT: I knew it! I knew it. And you mocked me for saying there would be a twist. And sure, there's a twist.

JEFFY: Because he's said he's learned his lesson. Right?

PAT: I thought so, yeah.

GLENN: Now, he did learn his lesson, it's not -- I had to go and look it up. I'm not going to spoil anything.

PAT: Yeah, please don't.

GLENN: I just Googled, "What the hell does the ending of this movie mean?"

And looked it up. And I'm like, "Okay. All right. I'm okay with it." But Tania and I just looked at each other and we were like, "What?"

PAT: That's weird. If you have to look up the ending, that's not a good sign.

STU: But I also like that.

GLENN: No, but you'll understand it. I don't want to blow it.

STU: I'm dying to see that, but I like that in movies.

GLENN: You will be satisfied. And then it's like -- he goes in for the kill, and you're like, "Stop it. Stop it."

PAT: He always does. He can't -- he can't help himself.

He scored big with the first movie, and he can't help himself now because he's too cool.

STU: This movie, by the way, came out on January 20th. It has not been out for two full weeks yet. $9 million budget. $119 million domestic gross already.

PAT: Split?

STU: Yes.

PAT: Really?

Nice. Nice.

GLENN: You know who did it? Jason Blum.

STU: Oh, yeah, yeah. It is.

PAT: Oh.

STU: Which is -- I mean, that's -- but, I mean, that's -- this is going to be one of the most successful movies of the year.

GLENN: This, you guys will not believe the acting skill of -- I don't even know the guy's name.

JEFFY: Yeah, he had to pull off at least three or four characters. Because he was 20 or something like that.

GLENN: I think 24 characters. But I think he plays eight.

JEFFY: Okay. That's still a lot.

GLENN: Yeah. And he is good.

STU: Sorry, it's been out three weeks, not two.

GLENN: What is his name? Because he played Xavier, right? In -- didn't he play the Jean-Luc Picard role, the Patrick Stewart role in X-Men?

PAT: Yes, same guy. Is it James McAvoy? Is that his name?

GLENN: I guess.

STU: All I know is that -- we showed the preview on Pat and Stu before it came out.

PAT: Yeah. James McAvoy.

STU: And we were just talking about, either this guy is Oscar worthy and can make this movie good.

JEFFY: Right. Or bad.

STU: Or if he's not an A-plus, the movie is going to be terrible.

GLENN: He's an A-plus. And you should have known that he was an A-plus. I mean, the guy can't walk. I mean, you saw him in X-Men. He can't walk.

PAT: And then he pretends he can in Split.

GLENN: Yeah, in Split, he's walking around. I don't know if it's CGI or what it was. But that's an A-plus performance. This guy is remarkable. Truly remarkable.

STU: Wow. The tenth biggest opening of all time in January.

PAT: What? Really?

STU: Yeah.

PAT: Jeez. How about that?

GLENN: Good for him. I'm happy for him.

STU: That's adjusted. Opening weekends, all time in January, the fifth biggest. And it's the biggest movie since -- or biggest of the similar. Like they compared it to a lot of other horror movies that would potentially be in the drama.

GLENN: It's not really a horror movie.

STU: Yeah, suspence?

GLENN: I will tell you, it's suspense. It was very Hitchcock. Very, very Hitchcock.

PAT: Well, that's what you would expect from Shyamalan.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: People were obviously -- he had his issues with a couple of movies there. But the last two have been really successful. The Visit was the last one last year.

GLENN: I didn't see it.

STU: I think Pat saw it. But it made a lot of noise as well. So that's two in a row. Big numbers.

PAT: So what about -- so you guys didn't see 50 Shades Darker on Valentines night?

GLENN: No. And neither did anyone else.

STU: Oh, my God.

PAT: Well, it was number two last weekend. The Lego Batman Movie beat it.

GLENN: I saw that.

PAT: But you would expect that.

GLENN: I saw that with the kids.

PAT: You did? Is it good?

GLENN: Lego Batman.

STU: Good? As good as Lego movie?

GLENN: No. Uh-uh. But good. Good. Just not as good. I mean, the Lego movie was in a league of its own. And the problem with this one is the Batman character is -- he just gets a little old after a while. It's like, "Okay. Okay. I got it. I got it."

STU: By the way, I was watching a show last week -- a tremendous program on USA, Suits, which I freaking love. I actually care about the characters on that show more than certainly everybody in this room and most people I know, just so you're aware.

GLENN: Yeah.

PAT: But they did a preview. An extended preview of 50 Shades Darker or whatever. It looked like a parody.

PAT: It looked so bad.

STU: It looked so horrible.

PAT: It was so bad.

STU: I couldn't believe -- the people in the movie -- I don't understand how they're in this sexy movie, first of all. It makes no sense. Neither one of them, to be honest.

PAT: Right! Thank you!

STU: And second of all, the acting and the lines were so horrible in this extended preview. I can't imagine that -- I mean, they might just pull the plug after two of them.

PAT: And weirdly, weirdly, people are hurting themselves trying to recreate the scenes in the movie apparently, going to emergency rooms with these erotic accidents.

GLENN: Erotic accidents.

STU: That's a great name for a band.

GLENN: It is The Erotic Accidents. This weekend.

STU: So we got there from you talking about Valentine's Day.

GLENN: Yeah.

STU: You already did the Valentine's Day thing yesterday?

GLENN: Yeah, so I did that yesterday. Well, I haven't given her her gift. And I want to -- I mean, I don't have to. I want to give it to her on the air. Because I know exactly what she's going to say off the air. I know exactly what she's going to say.

STU: Okay.

GLENN: She may say it on the air. But I just need some backup.

STU: So you're trying to guilt her into receiving the gift positively?

GLENN: Yes.

PAT: Which will not stop her from negatively receiving it later on.

STU: Right.

GLENN: I know.

STU: It probably makes it worse later on. Right? Because she's like, why did you put me on the air for that?

PAT: Right. You may not be inoculating yourself. You may be making it worse. I don't know.

GLENN: I know.

Why the Disinformation Board was REALLY canceled…

Just three weeks after its announcement, the Disinformation Governance Board is being paused and Nina Jankowicz is now on her way out. I'll bet you, in six months, we'll come back around to this -- mark it in your calendar. We'll come around to this story and say, oh. Remember when they canceled that? Yeah. They just shifted everything, under this umbrella, to hide it.

How the WHO's 'pandemic treaty' could CONTROL governments

On May 22nd, the World Health Assembly — which is the governing body of The World Health Organization — will meet in Switzerland to discuss next steps for its ‘pandemic treaty [and its] quest to use public health to expand The WHO’s power over sovereign states,’ Daniel Horowitz reports for TheBlaze. He explains how certain amendments to be added to this treaty could ‘allow the director-general of the WHO to declare a public health emergency in a country and unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions.’ The far-left and global elite continue to destroy our sovereignty, Glenn says, and this is just one more step toward their desired global government.

Transcript

Below is a rush transcript that may contain errors

GLENN: I read some stuff this morning. I've been doing some research on what's happening with the WHO. And I read their stuff today, that will make your head explode. And is really evil and important.

But let me give you this today, from -- from Daniel Horowitz at TheBlaze. States must preemptively nullify any WHO international pandemic regulation.

I'm going to read it verbatim because it's just so well-written. And now is the time, that things are shifting. We're going to. There's going to be a New World Order out there. And we've got to lead it. And we have to unite the rest of the free world in doing it. That's Joe Biden. March 21st, 2022.

Any Republican that is running without mentioning your intent to fight the global pandemic treaty or regulations, might as well run as a Democrat. This is really super important, and it is beginning to happen next week. On May 22nd, the world health assembly, the governing body of the World Health Organization, is going to meet in Geneva Switzerland to discuss the next step in its pandemic treaty. And the quest to use public health to expand the WHO's power over sovereign states. Representatives from 193 nations, including the US, will be attending the only country, not invited is Taiwan.

Gee, I wonder why. So what is this treaty? On January 24th, 2022, the director general of the WHO explained the treaty was a priority, to urgently strength the WHO, as leading and the director authority on global health, at the center of the global health architecture. He laid out the guiding principle of this plot. We, quote, all want a world in which science triumphs over misinformation. Solidarity triumphs over division. And equity is a reality, not an aspiration. He said, we are one world, we have one health. We are one WHO.

Now, this has not been announced. Biden has not even spoken about it. They are deathly quiet about this. But they're going to be approving amendments. The proposed amendments are essentially going to allow the director general of the WHO to declare public health emergencies in any country. And unilaterally coerce its citizens to take certain actions. Here's one of the amendments, a critical section from article nine. The WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party, whose territory the event is allegedly occurring. But this is the way it's going to read. Now, WHO may take into account, reports from sources of other than notifications or consultations -- consultations shall assess these reports, according to established principles. And then communicate information on the event, to the state party, in whose territory the event is allegedly occurring.

Now, they have scratched out, before taking any action based on reports, the WHO shall consult with and attempt to obtain verification from the state party. That's all gone. They're taking that out.

So WHO gets information, has reports, and they can act without verifying with the president or anybody else.

Why would you be erasing the requirement, for the WHO to consult with the government?

Number four. If the state party does not accept the offer of collaboration within 48 hours, WHO, it used to say, May. It now says, WHO shall -- when justified by the magnitude of public health risk, immediately share with other state parties, the information available, whilst encouraging the state party to accept the offer of collaboration, by the WHO. It used to say there, while taking into accounts the views of the state party concerned.

So they're erasing all of our sovereignty. This is going to be another thing. They're going to say, is a conspiracy theory. It is not. You can look it all up. It is the world health agenda. From the World Health Organization. They are meeting in Geneva, on May 22nd. So that's next week. They are intentionally quiet on this.

Because they know the power. Now, we also know what the WHO is. You remember, when everybody was saying, we have to get out of the WHO.

They're just a tool of China. Why would you say that?

Forget that I mentioned that Taiwan is the only country that is not invited to this in Geneva.

PAT: Yeah. That's completely -- completely irrelevant.

GLENN: Completely. Amen, brother.

PAT: I don't even know why you brought it up in the first place.

GLENN: Thank you. Thank you.

PAT: It's a good thing they weren't actually -- I wish we weren't invited to it.

GLENN: Well, I will tell you this. Another reason why Donald Trump. They fought so hard to keep him out: Because he wouldn't have --

PAT: He sure wouldn't have. That's exactly right.

GLENN: He wouldn't have empowered the WHO.

PAT: Well, he took us out of the WHO.

GLENN: That's exactly right. And this president is not only putting us back, they're taking away our sovereignty.

And so it's one more piece to the global governance of the left. Warning.

Right vs. Left: The Time for Compromise Is OVER | Jesse Kelly | Ep 146

The Left worked for decades to get control, and now they have it: “Every cultural pillar has been infected and taken over,” Jesse Kelly warns Glenn. So, it’s time to get out of the stands and onto the field. On this episode of "The Glenn Beck Podcast," the host of the nationally syndicated "Jesse Kelly Show" joins with a blunt message for the Right: The time for compromise is gone. This system that’s raising young people who hate America can’t be salvaged, and while taking back Congress in 2022 would be nice, LOCAL victories are what really matter. But this won’t be a quick fight. Thankfully, Jesse has some solutions, and they involve Play-Doh …
