    67% positive on rotten tomatoes. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/unbreakable/

    Substantially higher than "The Village" which came in at 42%. http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/village/

    Touché... but alas, knowing I was wrong about the critics doesn't make me like the film any better.

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

    The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable were solid.

    I loved Signs but I'm willing to acknowledge its faults.

    The Village was beautiful looking but the more you look back on it...not a good overall film.

    Didn't bother with Lady in the Water.

    Hoping the Happening is at least as good as Signs.

    Unbreakable is easily Shyamalan's best film to date.

    Indeed. By far my favorite.

    I've liked all his flicks to an extent. At least, I can take away something from each of them.

    Some though, sure are better than others.

    My wife says Signs is the scariest movie she's ever seen - but she's freaked out by Alien type stuff. And Spiders.. heh - she refuses to watch aracnaphobia.

    The only beef I had with Lady in the Water was just some of the rediculous names he called the creatures or whatever. Stuff like that. Otherwise, I was surprised at how much I did like the movie.

    Can't wait for this one! I have no idea what its supposed to be about - haven't read about it, only seen the trailer. Looks bizzare.

    He's very good at "framing" a moment that sends chills down your spine. When Gibson looked out the window and that alien was standing on the roof, and when the TV news caught the alien walking quickly by in that alley, shook me.

    The Village had a couple of those moments too.

    I thought that Signs and Sixth Sense were two of his best.

    I think this looks like a bad Stephen King movie so I'm not going to see it.

    Unbreakable was an awesome movie. I loved that one. Signs was alright. The Sixth Sense was amazing the first time I saw it. Haven't seen the other Night movies.

    waaaay not true. In fact aside from his non-horror films I'm waiting for a good one.

    There were a few early on in the beginning. But those moments ended as soon as "Those We Don't Speak Of" were shown walking around in awful porcupine suits.

    How this guy continues to get financial backing is astounding. Almost breathtaking.

    It's fair to say that some of his scripts have been flawed, but you don't think he's a good director? I'd say he's one of the best, at least among mainstream filmmakers. I'm not even sure that his scripts are that much of a negative relatively speaking considering the amount of garbage that Hollywood excretes.
