    M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening"

    http://youtube.com/watch?v=ort07zcUs7g

    This looks like it will be a return to form for M. Night, and a rated-R flick to boot! I can't wait. Looks really cool from the trailer.

    All trailers make a movie look good. That is there intent.

    Re: M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening"

    I'm a little concerned by how the trailer I've seen in the theater a couple of times makes Mark Wahlberg look like Eddie Haskell. I'll usually go see anything with Mark Wahlberg in it, but I plan to wait for reviews on this one.

    Were you in the theater for "Boogie Nights"?? I can't see you seeing that movie in the theater for some reason, Unassisted.

    How long until someone recuts the trailer with the new theme song?

    No, I didn't get to see that one in the theater. I probably would have at the time. I think I've seen every film he's done since Three Kings.

    No doubt trailer editing can make all the difference. If anyone's missed this rework of "The Shining," you should check this out:

    I must be in a very small minority because I really liked both Lady In The Water and The Village.

    I did too. I thought much of the criticism of The Village came because people were expecting a big shock ending, and what happened could be figured out pretty easily (then again, I figured out The Sixth Sense from the commercials).

    But yeah, I liked both movies. Shyamalan was pretty direct about what he thought of critics through his treatment of the Bob Balaban character in Lady In The Water. Probably didn't do himself any favors, though.

    I enjoyed Lady in the Water. It was silly, but one must keep in mind that it's a fairy tale. The Village was mediocre. Shyamalan's films are all well made, though. I love long, uncut shots.

    I was hoping for something different - "M. Night Shyamalan's What's Happening". The twist? Rerun is actually H.H. Holmes.

    Re: M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening"

    The Village was awful. just awful. completely figured the movie out in the first 30 minutes. Held zero suspense. Signs stunk too. Haven't seen Lady in the water. Loved the Sixth Sense and Unbreakable.
    Suck it up cupcake.

    I liked Sixth Sense and Signs. Absolutely LOVED Unbreakable. My favorite Shyamalomadingdong movie. He talked about being asked to do a sequel in interviews but decided against it. He would be well-served to reconsider that decision. (Assuming he can still get a movie with that size budget made after this movie hits. )

    Re: M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening"

    Surprising to see so much love for "Unbreakable." I didn't care for that one at all and IIRC, most critics didn't either. I liked "The Village" and "Sixth Sense."
