Lady in the water

Hmmm, still not sure what I think of this one. Not M. Night's best work for sure.

Re: Lady in the water

M Night has only made one movie that can unequivocally be described as a great movie and that movie the Sixth Sense. Everything else he has put out since leans to the garbage side of the spectrum.

Re: Lady in the water

I though "Unbreakable" - if it isn't viewed through the "Sixth Sense" prism - is a great movie. Since everyone was waiting for the reveal, it lacked the impact of 6th Sense.

Before he did Sixth Sense he did a small movie called Praying with Anger that I thought was really good.

Re: Lady in the water

I liked The Village too.

I think he set the bar so high with the sixth sense it's awfully hard to repeat that success. It's hard to watch one of his movies now and not expect a twist.

Re: Lady in the water

lady in the water, hmmm. I heard many people saying "that sucked" while walking out. If you take it as a fantasy movie its alright. It wasn't good though because they just were going over the same thing over and over and kept on messing up in the process so they had to do it again. It was different than anyother movie i have seen. I guess the story line was kind of interesting but nothing great at all. B- for the BSB.

Your mindset heading into this film definitely makes a difference. If you're waiting for the twist, don't because there isn't one. If you're expecting a horror film, don't because it isn't one.

I wish I knew a little more about it before seeing it, I might have enjoyed it more.

Re: Lady in the water

The whole movie critic to public understanding is full of it. 2 Thumbs or this and that is a wretched and horrible way to tell people what a movie is about. Id expect for these critics to get paid as much as they do, to expand on their professional standing and vocabulary beyond raising an extremity.

Re: Lady in the water

I liked 6th sense, but basically nothing else he's ever done.

he's a good guy though.

Re: Lady in the water

yeah this is by no means a horror movie. Its more a comedy than a horror movie. it is a fantasy movie and it is different than most movies i have seen.
