    Default M. Knight Shyamalan appreciation thread

    he's is/gonna be one of the best writers/directors of all time... The Village, Signs, Unbreakable, The Sixth Sense (he's got one other i haven't seen) are all great movies... discuss:


    ps. people who didn't like The Village, don't like good writing...

    Those who have something to fall back on, always do.

    i think he is highly overrated cuz there are so few high quality supernatural thrillers these days.

    Sixth Sense was really good when i saw it, but that was like 5 years ago. I thought signs was an anus, but unbreakable was pretty good.

    i havent seen the village, but heard bad things. may check it out. thats a crock of shit if you think anyone that doesnt like the village doesnt know good writing.

    did you see that special doc on Sci-fi about him? shit was pretty good.

    aka Ol Dirty...

    I'ma get home, I'ma get there, Make it back even if im caught out there....


    FUCKIN BOSTON!

    I don't like him at all really, his work relies too much on gimmicks.
    As for myself: I had come to the conclusion that there was nothing sacred about myself or any human being, that we were all machines, doomed to collide and collide and collide.

    6th sense was ok, but it's a movie you can only see once.

    The Village was a BIIIIGGG dissapointment, it started of pretty well tho....

    And as for Signs, an even bigger dissapointment, again, the movie started good but turned into nuthin'.

    I am a fan of Shyamalan's works...although I haven't seen Stuart Little yet...haha
    Nevertheless I found his more familiar works entertaining.....from the pace (some may consider it slow, to each his own), his use of camera angles and colour palette/motifs...are all well done, in my opinion

    Sixth Sense is clearly his best work, guess it started it all with the so-called twists his name is synonymous with to this date...the afterlife, apparitiions..was fantastic
    Unbreakable was great, the average joe superheroe, good v.s. evil...dope
    Signs...excellent take on determinism/free will, ones faith....solid work

    .....it was the bacteria 'in' the water, for those who also are thinking the same

    The Village was decent, though, I have only seen it once where as I've seen those mentioned previously numerous times, I still hope to learn to love this film...the cinematography is top notch

    I didn't like any of his movies beacuse someone always spoiled the ending before I watched them.
    the exception is unbreakable- that movie was fucking fresh baby

    I think he's overrated. I didn't think The Sixth Sense was that great. I liked Stir of Echoes better, it was more eerie. I didn't see Unbreakable. Signs was ok, but nothing special. The Village was worse than Signs, especially the ending. A bunch of people walked out of the theater during that movie.

    He did Stuart Little? lol I liked that movie. I didn't see the second one though.
