    The Village

    If you haven't seen this movie, then do not proceed any further. I don't want to spoil it for you (though I don't think there is much to spoil after finally seeing it : ).

    BIG disappointment for me. Not one of M Night's best efforts IMO.

    To coin Sixth Sense...."I see a dread movie" "lol"

    Alot of "gaps" in this movie. A "secret" society somehow hidden away from all of modern civilization under the rouse of a giant wildlife preserve?

    And then to find out those "they are forbidden to speak of" never really existed, but were created/fabricated in order to exercise control over the village.

    It had it's typical M Night moments; but overall, a weak effort.

    On a different note.... I Robot :thumbdown

    We rentes Shaun Of The Dead, but turned it off early into the movie because I didn't think it was appropriate for the kids. I'll watch it later alone.

    Looking forward to watching Denzel in the Machurian Candidate today. But gotta get it in before the Patriot-Colts game. :allovrjr:

    I loved "The Sixth Sense." I liked "Signs." I haven't yet seen "The Village" but it has received uniformly poor reviews and everything I've read about it makes it sound to be simply dumb.

    Sixth Sense and Signs spooked us because M. Night caught us off-guard. When you go to a movie expecting a surprise, it takes some air out of the balloon.

    M. Night needs to try something new, that's all.

    That's a pretty good explanation. I figured the Village out fairly quickly, and I usually don't see the twists in movies until they happen. I might not have gotten it if I wasn't looking for a twist to begin with.

    It's all about why you watch movies I guess.

    I knew about The Village before I watched it, but I didn't care. I still loved it, because I don't watch movies for surprise endings or a shock storyline.

    wasn't really trying to figure them out. guess i just think similar enough to Night for it to work.

    Re: The Village

    Figured out "signs" 35 minutes into the film? What's there to figure out? Aliens were coming?
    That hit was plenty fair. Atleast by a quarter of an inch.
