I was a bit disappointed that my trip to Europe last summer would make me miss M. Night Shyamalan's The Happening. His last few movies pretty much sucked, but I'm always intrigued by the stuff he comes up with.
Finally saw it last night. Man, it was awful. . . Just AWFUL!!! Utter fucking shit, pure and simple! How could it be SOOOOO bad??? I feel that downloading porn for 90 minutes would have been a more worthwhile pursuit. This movie was a crapfest from start to finish.
The Sixth Sense was brilliant. But the more I think about it, the more I begin to realize that it was probably a fluke. Shyamalan was supposed to be the next big thing in the film industry, the Steven Spielberg of the 21st century. Well, after a string of stinkers (Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, and Lady in the Water), I would go as far as claim that M. Night Shyamalan could well be the most overrated director in the industry.
The Happening takes the cake for worst film of Shyamalan's career thus far. I think it's time for him to direct and let someone else write these scripts. . .
Bad, bad, bad. . .
