The Village (don't see it!)
What a lame movie. I bet everyone in the theater was expecting a scary movie, since that's what was advertised.
I don't know - it wasn't an action packed thriller, but I thought the ending was at least, different. We're too used to films that keep moving from 1 action scene to the next. I've seen alot of worse movies..and I didn't particularly mind bucking up $8 to see this one. Then again, I'm also reading Atlas Shrugged, so maybe I'm a glutton for slow-moving punishment ;-)
I don't know if it's any good, but that huge Loews theather in Times Square is closing down, and you can see it for half price (buy one ticket, get one) & get free concessions to boot.
Well, they sure advertised it as a scary movie and I can count only two times in the movie where I was somewhat scared.
Isn't it about the same with all of his movies? I don't know why they call this guy a "master" of horror. Signs sucked, whatever that movie where the guy was indestructible was boring as hell. Only the "I see dead people" movie was any good.
Signs was a hit i think. There are a lot of stupid movies made which go on to become hits
I just saw it, and loved it, because I was forewarned by all the bad reviews not to expect a really scary movie. Once that misconception was out of the way, it was a good drama, though you kind of have to consciously buy into it at the beginning.
Signs was the only one I saw, and I couldn't believe how bad the deus ex machina was. Aaargh! Can't Hollywood afford science consultants?
The problem with The Village is that the "twist" is so transparent, it's almost laughable. If you don't figure it out in the first ten minutes, your bulb is a little dim.
I thought it was great. If you were expecting a scary movie as in scary with lots of action, then you must not have seen any of the other M. Night movies. Hitchcock's thrillers didn't have that much action compared to some movies today, either. However, the Village had a VERY compelling story, excellent camera work, and great characters and connections between them. If you want all scary movies to be the same, just rotate between the Friday 13th series and the Nightmare on Elm Street series.
