You actually liked it????? Really????????? Oh, wow......we have some different tastes! i had skipped this one in the theaters, as a result of my
utter disgust concerning another of his movies, The Village.
I won't comment on that one save to say the advertising staff for it should be
drawn and quartered for gross misrepresentation. Anyway, after that one, I wrote off seeing anything of his on the big screen. Ever. Loved
, thought The Sixth Sense
was obvious, thought Unbreakable
was ridiculous and too vague, and then came The Village
Well, anyway, that rant aside, I saw this one only at the urging of a family member, to whom I owe a big smack upside the head for the recommendation.
I don't know what I expected, but it wasn't what we got, at all. I found the whole thing rather dull, and lame, personally. Different tastes, I
suppose, as this other person said she enjoyed it. She was right with me on the other one, for the record.
Innocent, I can see. Dark? Maybe a little, but more like a child's fairy tale book than what I wanted in a movie. Then, maybe that was his intent.
I didn't hate it, but I didn't really like it, either.
Other than that, the only one of his I have seen was Devil
, and I called that one as soon as the antagonist hit the screen, literally. Way too
predictable for me. My oldest son calls him "Shame-a-lot", based on what he's seen. Other than Signs
, he doesn't like any he's seen,
, I have to say, was good in spite of him, and carried by the phenomenal acting of Gibson and Phoenix, and the good acting from
the kid stars. Because of their performances, I can overlook the glaring plot issue. Anyone that's seen it knows what I mean, and I won't spoil it
for any that haven't. If curious, and you have seen it, PM me.
Just, please, tell me you didn't like The Village
