Are all the films of M Night Shaylaman rubbish?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by found nemo, Mar 19, 2011.

  1. None are as bad as The Happening.
     
  2. I quite enjoyed "Signs."
    The problem with twist in the tail endings is once you've seen the film once, there's no point seeing it again (unless you have a particularly bad memory).
     
  3. The village was ok. He has a very strange imagination.

    Unbreakable was OK, but I have loathed every other film he has churned out - they have been pretentious and portentious twaddle

    This is the guy that did 'Sixth Sense' yes?....I saw that one. It was so-so. I guessed the outcome early on, not a favourite of mine.
    And I watched just under half of 'Unbreakable'. There are very few films I give up on - and this was one of them.
    And I haven't seen the others mentioned. I read the blurb for 'The Happening' and decided I'd rather watch an NCIS DVD!
     
  6. The village was cringeworthy at times but I quite liked the idea, scaring people by inventing monsters to control them. I think many govts including our own have used that one over the years.
     
  7. I liked The Sixth Sense. Still quite like it.

    All the others are gash, imo.
