There's nothing wrong with having 2 good films on your resume. shiat, I have maybe 1/2. The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable were good films. Most great bands usually have only one good album in them even though they keep making shiat.

That is the greatest twist of his career. Brilliant.

WHAT A TWIST!

He frikkin' telegraphed that, too
 
2013-06-12 09:11:12 PM  
Unbreakable was 1) better than The Sixth Sense, and b) better than any movie that Freddie Prinze Jr. has ever starred in.

/ffs.... excepting scream, matthew lillard might have a worse case of the anti-midas touch than m. night does.
//no, not munch's painting the scream.
///prinze jr. + lillard, in one movie. think about that for a moment.

"I guess in the history of things, when they're considering a movie or offering me a movie, I'm immediately saying yes or no - and if it's a yes, it's a, 'Yes! Right now! Let's go!' It isn't a 'Let's see,' or 'let's horde it.'"

He's making a World of Warcraft movie?

They should have done a Scooby Doo ending where the spooky ghost is revealed to be....M. Night Shyamalan!

He can make a movie that makes Citizen Kane and Godfather look like direct-to-DVD films for all I care, I will never ever ever forgive that man for what he did with The Last Airbender.
 
2013-06-12 09:25:47 PM  
For the first time, I did not see that reveal coming.

Was "She's All That" a good movie? I have a hard time sensing the farcasm sometimes.

/fark sarcasm. don't make me explain it. dammit, I explained it

I dunno that I'd call it a "good movie" but it was ok. I suppose it's better if you're into the romantic comedy type movies.

/Not Another Teen Movie was better
//flame on bro!

I genuinely like it but I have a thing for Rachel Leigh Cook.

I don't want to be that guy (I'm totally going to be that guy), but...ramifications of having a meh romantic comedy on your record aside, why reveal this now?  Is he that desperate for attention?  Is it something along the lines of, "I just took one of the most bankable stars in Hollywood and put him in a dud.  Quick, look at this tidbit that I hope is juicy enough to distract from the fact that whatever doubts there may have been about my not knowing what the hell I'm doing have now been forevermore eradicated."

Headline must be sarcastic. "She's All That" is off-the-charts awful. Arty outcast learns happiness is wearing lip gloss and dating jocks with two-digit IQs? One of those fictional worlds where although jocks are all bastards, geeks secretly aspire to be jocks and everyone, regardless of clique, goes to the same parties? Not one character which isn't a horrible cliché? Yeah, great movie.

Here's a clue: Even Shyamalan wouldn't put his own name on it. It's that bad.

Yeah, that must be why the movie is crap.

Even with Gus in it.

Some one hit wonders: Jimi Hendrix, Rush, Lou Reed, Janis Joplin, Devo, Iggy Pop, Bo Diddly, Grateful Dead

In fact, this eleven minute review (NSFW language), is much more entertaining then that movie.

Did you know that Mark Walberg is going to be in Transformers 4?!?

Ah well no wonder that movie sucked.

Wow Freddie Prinze Jr hasn't aged very well
 
2013-06-12 10:23:05 PM  
Shakespeare, who Night stole the idea from, wouldn't put his name on it either.

Of course, ol' will has an excuse...

It's like he decided that his new movies aren't earning him enough hate, and decided to earn some retroactive hate as well.

When does he reveal that he was behind New Coke?

Nah, he's not quite up to doing quite as evil as New Coke, but I'm betting he was responsible for Crystal Pepsi.

The only good thing about She's All That is that we got Not Another Teen Movie out of it.

No, it's a Genghis Khan movie.

I'm doing a movie about life at a Ghengis Grill.

My backers agree nothing we make could be as bad as that John Wayne Ghengis Khan movie.

To be fair, the first two Scary Movies weren't that bad. They were actually trying to have a story and use it to riff on other, better films. Plus Tim Curry is in the second one, so i can't hate it.

But yeah, Not Another Teen Movie shouldn't be confused with that other crap.

 I only remember the first one but at least it didn't have jokes like, "Look at that thing from that movie that was out at the time of shooting and is already a year old and we added Carmen Electra!". That's the joke.

What the hell happened to parody movies like Airplane and Naked Gun?
 
2013-06-12 11:25:01 PM  
Sixth Sense was a one-viewing good movie. Unbreakable is far superior. Some of his other movies had some entertaining value, but it's been slipping away fast, and not sure if The Village or The Happening was the worst.

Wow, I'm actually kind of surprised. I expected the Fark consensus to revile the movie since it was actually funny and somewhat successful.

Good to see some love for that film in here.

I  still think he  stole the idea for the 6th sense from someone. His later movies prove he either had one good idea or he got a the good idea from someone else, cuz his other stuff is the  suckage.
 
2013-06-13 12:10:27 AM  
This hasn't changed my opinion that he should choke on his own excrement.

Well I wouldn't say "stole" but a good many of the various versions of  The Twilight Zone episodes are about the main character SPOILER ALERT being dead.

This one farked me up as a kid, still does

I thought I was the only person who liked Unbreakable. Sure it was slow and didn't have much action, but we don't ALL have ADD.
