Lets talk M. Night Shyamalan......

I just watched "The Happening" and I just can't believe this came from the same guy who did Unbreakable and Sixth Sense! I only paid $5.00 for this movie and I still feel like I got cheated and paid to have sex with a monkey--a DUDE monkey! Its one of those movies that you have see to appreciate how bad it is!

I do enjoy some of M. Nights work. Hell, I'm probably one of the few people that liked Lady in the Water despite its faults! I thought Signs was a good movie despite the fact that most of the characters acted more like drones then human beings. I was disappointed with The Village because I was expecting a monster movie and it turned out to be something completely different. I haven't seen The Last Airbender but I heard he completely ****ed that up.

I guess the point of the thread is I want to get your opinion on M. Night and his movies? Do you like his movies or do you believe he was a one trick pony and that Sixth Sense and Unbreakable will be his only two master pieces?

I liked The Happening too. Unfortunately the simple "earth fights back" concept wasn't developed well enough to carry the film. I enjoyed everything I saw but was left with too many questions to feel satisfied. I see what he was trying to do but I'd still agree that it's his weakest entry, it wasn't great and I can see why many outright hated it.

I really enjoyed The Village or at the very least the first half of it.

cjl201 has a little shameless behaviour in the past
When you open with something like The Sixth Sense I guess it's hard to keep making films on that level and your next films bound to be worse.
I've seen Signs and The Village and they were pretty entertaining but I haven't watched them again. Definitely not Sixth Sense caliber. Although haven't rewatched that either
