I love M Night Shamalamalamalan, he takes some of the stupidest ideas and turns them into awesome movies.
Signs: Aliens that are allergic to water come to earth to take people (for some undisclosed reason), they have legs strong enough to jump on top of a house, but can't break down a door.
Unbreakable: A guy who is allergic to water (agian with the water allergy thing) is un killable, yet he manages to shave and shower with no problems.
The Village: A guy gets stabbed and they send a blind girl (not one of the elders that knows the truth and can get help better) to go into the woods and find medicine from the outside world.
I could probably find stupid stories and indeas in all of them, but the fact is, Shamalan is a genius in taking stupid stories and making them in to suspence gold, if only the sci-fi channel could find a way to do that. Plus, all his movies talk about how everyone has a destiny, and most of them talk about how God uses the bad for good. If you didn't know, Shamalan is a Christian, I think he includes his faith in a little bit of all his movies. I love his brand of suspense, it's a lot better than all these "Pop up and scare you" type of movies, things that just try to scare you, plus he is so good that he doesn't have to have sex scenes in his movies to keep people watching his stuff.
