I saw Jaccobs Ladder whe it first came out.
It was a mindscrew at the time.
The Sixth Sense wasprobably one of M Night Shyamalin's best movies
I keep my standards low.

Signs was good too.
The Village was,, well, I cant describe what I thought of that movie. Lady in The Water ,hmmmm,,,what can I say that hasnt allready been said about that piece of s**t.
And the last one he did,,too damn predictable that relyed too muchon shocking images. The entire story could have been done in ten minutes.
I keep my standards low.
That way im never disapointed.

Signs to me was a return to the 60s monsters from space type movies.
Personaly, I loved it.
You have to watch for the little known parts in the movie for it to make sense.

Gone With the Wind
Sat through this epic because we're studying A Streetcar Named Desire in school. ASND kind of ruined GWTW for me because I kept seeing Blanche DuBois in Scarlett O'Hara. But I really liked GWTW anyway. The technicolour is glorious, and Vivien Leigh is beyond gorgeous. This movie slayed me.

Frankly my dear ( ;)) the consequential question is: Which heroine did you like best?

It's funny how in all of this talk about M. Night Shamalamadingdong no one mentioned Unbreakable. It's not a horrible flick like Signs or Lady in the Water, but it did rub me the wrong way. Ultimately because of Sam Jackson's character - throughout the movie he espouses some great truths about comics - especially that hieroglyphs being pictures as words constitute some of the first comics ever made.

But then he turns out to be a crazy person so all of what he says is completely undermined by his villainy.  ::)

Anyway, I just watched Zombieland last night (got a link to a DVD-quality avi if anyone's interested).

A decent little zombie flick even if it did have some annoying aspects to what some of the characters did in the film. It's not a traditional zombie flick since the zombies run and can be dispatched by shots that don't include the head (which bugged me a lot near the end).

Also, there's the sequence they show in the trailer of Woody Harrelson killing zombies in a supermarket, and he keeps throwing his weapons aside. For instance, he bashes a couple with an aluminum baseball bat and throws the bat away! Uh, maybe you should keep that since it doesn't run out of ammo!

Speaking of which, there are plenty of places where they waste ammo, too. Grrrr...

And the main character has a list of rules about how to survive Zombieland, and some of them are great, but he tends to sabotage himself at the same time. For instance one of the rules is "Always Know Your Exit" and when explaining the rule the character checks to see that an EXIT door leads outside, and then props it open with a box. Uh, good one genius, now stuff can get in... ::)

But overall it's pretty fun and Harrelson is hilarious, and you'd never believe the things he'd do just to get his hands on a Twinkie...  :D

I finally watched Adventureland. It wasn't bad, it wasn't great... therefore it was just sort of ..blah. It had a couple of funny lines. And a couple of vague moments I connected with emotionally. But, the characters and plot were too easily anticipated. Nothing was overly mundane. Put it never picked up speed either.

Blanche DuBois vs Scarlett O'Hara??
I found Blanche DuBois so annoying in ASND though, which is why it was a great performance. She is just so bless'ed unbearable. Scarlett is far less annoying, but she was a heartless madam. I don't know :-\
Scarlett later in life = Blanche DuBois.
