Saying that movie is good is saying that you have a shitty taste in movies.

Apparently The Village makes Signs look like a flawless masterpiece...

Don't tell me, something weird happens and then there's a big twist at the end.

The "twist" is absolutely atrocious. It's an insult to people of even my intelligence. Laughably stupid. I can't see how anyone would like that movie. Excellently shot movie. But the actual plot was one of the stupidest thing I've ever seen.

That guy writes like a ten year old.

How he produced "Sixth Sense" is beyond me. I thought that was brilliant and it fooled me from beginning to end.
"Unbreakable" and "Signs" were progressively bad pieces of trite crap and if "The Village" follows in exponential suit, I won't bother.

Sixth Sense - Brilliant
Unbreakable - OK, bit cheesy
Signs - not as bad as I was expecting after all the slatings but crap


I see a pattern.

The more I think about Unbreakable the crappier it becomes. What a waste of a movie.

sixth sense was clever, but i (helped heavily by the fact that i first saw it several years after its release and had heard nothing else about it other than the kid could see dead people and i should expect a big twist) instantly figured out the twist and felt absolutely no compulsion to watch any more of it after the first fifteen minutes.

just to continue on

everyone who is my freind who has watched it (my 5 housemates, one of their brothers, one of their girlfreinds. another friend) has liked it

(I have other freinds who have seen it that I havne' talked to yet, will later)

I watched Sixth Sense several years after it came out but didn't know anything about it, not even that the kid could see dead people or that there was a twist, and I didn't figure it out at all.

Maybe if I'd known that the kid could see dead people before the attack at the beginning it'd have been obvious what was going to happen. *shrug*

how did you manage to miss that the kid saw dead people? it was all over the film's own trailers, the endless parodies of it and any other time the film was mentioned

and while we're on it, scary movie may not be the greatest film ever made, but 'i see white people' certainly is the best sixth sense parody i've seen :lol:

I saw it when it first came out and didn't have a clue about the kid's powers, the twist, nothing.
I felt like a moron when I saw it the second time and everything was so obvious.

I think people like Funko and I are just gentle, free spirits and tend to believe in things readily, whereas someone like say, KG for instance, is so jaded and cynical from his degraded drug and sex parties and call girls and anal beads and stuff that it is very difficult for him to suspend his disbelief and let his imagination take full flight.

Someone say "sex party"?

BigGameHunter

Sigh...it's been about 11 years since I attended anything that could be called a "sex party".
Those were the days--the days of wine and roses, the zenith of our youth, where our joyful submission to our base desires yielded sweet sad knowledge and hard little insights into one another--alack, alas...anon.

You know, if it's in a book, I tend to spot that sort of thing right away. But when I sit down to watch a movie, I generally try turning my brain COMPLETELY off (alright you wise asses, before you start, I usually leave it at MOSTLY off :)).... it really helps in enjoying movies.

In Sixth Sense, all I knew about the kid was that he saw dead people before seeing it. And so the "twist" was entertaining for me. So what?

JM, sounds like you need to get smarter friends/housemates. ;)

Was it? I guess that shows how little I follow news about upcoming films. :lol:

Makes me itch and burn just thinking about it. :)

My wife figured out the twist to the Village after watching a trailer. Then again, she's way smarter than me, and better looking, and standing right behind me.

I suppose it is possible

Ah, so they're super dorks. That explains why it was interesting to them.
