Lady dead in the water

I KNEW it! M Night Shammalammadingdong’s latest film is reportedly another flop.

I swore after ‘Signs’ I’d never watch his films again. The same well-paced buildup as Sixth Sense and Unbreakable, I was practically exploding with excitement waiting for the expected twist. A twist which turned out to be a complete McGuffin, a shortcut to finish the story without paying off the effort I’d invested watching it for the previous ninety minutes. Awful. I didn’t see ‘The Village’, but it apparently suffered the same fate.

And by giving himself a big role in the film – as a genius but misunderstood writer – he’s made his biggest error of all. M’s career is now over, and I saw the Signs years ago.
