See, I kind of liked the Happening. I saw it in theaters and it was really tense and pretty creepy. Parts of it were downright stupid, but the movie itself seemed way more grown-up than other horror movies. I don't know why it's so cool to hate on M. Night Shyamalan. He's a good filmmaker. It doesn't matter that he's full of himself, everybody in Hollywood is. Even Lady in the Water's a good movie. It's not great, but to say Lady in the Water or the Village, or the Happening are bad movies just isn't true. They're well done. They look great. They're funny. He just has a bad rep.

I actually liked this movie and the aproach of the film and the angles. It was done in a very old horror movie way...

Yeah. He has definitely gone down hill. Has anyone heard about what his next disappointing project will be?

I have come to the conclusion that I HATE M. Knight Shama-ham-sandwich movies. Every time a new one comes out, I see the preview and go, "WOW! That looks awesome! I'll definitely go see that!" Then I do, and I end up leaving the theater very angry, muttering, "damn him...he tricked me again..." I won't say which of his movies I prefer, because quite frankly I think they all suck. They always have the potential to be very entertaining, but his idiotic twists always leave me smacking myself in the forehead, and wanting my money back.

Happening is by far the worst of his career. Horrible in a bad way!

Sorry to say I never saw the unbreakable, I thought the Signs is better. But the Sixth Sense was over the top, I did not like it a bit.

So is the happening the worst one? I know it just came out or is coming out on DVD but didn't know if it is worth a rent. I saw every single one of them in the theater except this one. Should I rent, or no?

I thought the Sixth Sense was his best, followed by Unbreakable and then Signs. As far as the happening, its pretty awful. It feels like the plot was written on the back of some bar napkin and the movie was filmed in 2 weeks or so.

I haven't seen Lady in the Water either, I just don't expect it to be good. The Village I thought was okay, but I too was just waiting for the twist and figured it out before it was over because of that.
