Drowning in dissapointment

Being a big fan of fairy tales, especially their relevance to our modern lives, I thought that the perfect film for me had come into existence.

At a rundown apartment complex a mundane, bored with life handy man stumbles across a water nymph trying to save humanity from its own ignorance.
After convincing him she is more than just a nut job he attempts to get her back home,... read more

no, unlike typical M. Night Shyamalan's films, this doesnt really have any 'twists'

yes, the story is far-fetched, and every part of the plot just falls exactly in place - as you'd expect in a bed-time story

yes, it mixes a real-life enviroment (an apartment complex in present-day) with mythical creatures and fantasy and legends - usually NOT a good mixture (example, ... read more

After growing accustomed to the style of M. Night Shyamalan and his twisted endings, some may not appreciate the straightforward fantastical story presented in Lady in the Water. I was one of those people as the storyline was less than appealing and seemed to drag on with the ultimate resolve being very ordinary. It seems the magical run of M. Night Shyamalan and his stories have finally come back... read more

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: Jan & Feb (26 movies items)

"January 29 "Man thinks they are each alone in this world. It is not true. You are all connected. One act can one day affect all." After watching this, I fail to see what's wrong with it. In fact, I think this might be Shyamalan's most misunderstood film. Now, when this came out, it was unlike anything he's done before. There's no big twist at the end or anything, but instead it's about the story and the characters. M. Night Shyamalan tried to do his own version of a fairy tale story and I th"

Top 10 Movies That Ruined the Director's Reputatio (10 movies items)

"M. Night Shyamalan"

Movie Reviews (1501-1550) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Intriguing idea. Bryce Dallas Howard has an angelic supernatural quality to herself that makes her believable as something "out of this world". Excellent set-up and introduction to the movie makes one hope this is one of the director's better works. The Downs: Never manage to build up any suspense after it's setup. Film is unsure if it wants to be a cute fantasy movie, comedy or a thriller which makes one feel the movie has no direction. Rules in the movie are rewritten numerous time"

A Complete Review of M. Night Shyamalan's work (12 movies items)

" Cast : Paul Giamatti, Bryce Dallas Howard, Jeffrey Wright, Freddy Rodríguez What was it about? Apartment building superintendent Cleveland Heep rescues what he thinks is a young woman from the pool he maintains. When he discovers that she is actually a character from a bedtime story who is trying to make the journey back to her home, he works with his tenants to protect his new friend from the creatures that are determined to keep her in our world. My two cents: Before watching this flick"
