The Almost!

"Can I have a ticket to The Happening thats happening right now?"

The title and trailer of this film always lead me to believe this was a 'movie within a tv show' from the Simpsons. Its ambiguousness and vague outset gave that extra point that you have to see this film to actually find out whats going on! However, it did give me a sense of curiousity and it was instantly put on my t... read more

"There appears to be an event happening..."

As of 2008, it has been nine years since M. Night Shyamalan made his mark on the thriller genre with his 1999 hit The Sixth Sense. Director/writer Shyamalan proved that he is able to create some intriguing concepts and bring them successfully to the big screen. Unfortunately, from there it has been nothing but downhill for the director. In... read more

Laughably bad

I'm honestly not exaggerating when I say this may be one of the worst movies I've ever seen. I've seen low budget slasher flicks and student films that were better than this.

Some dodgy acting. Terrible dialogue. Characterisation was poor so I really didn't care whether anyone in the film died or not, even with the added cliche of throwing a child into the mix to try to elicit some ... read more

When a deadly airborne virus threatens to wipe out the northeastern United States, teacher Elliott Moore and his wife flee from contaminated cities into the countryside in a fight to discover the truth. Is it terrorism, the accidental release of some toxic military bio weapon, or something even more sinister?

"Earth,...Mother Nature,...Gaia,...as an ECO-TERRORIST?? Who knew? (Hey, this place is actually The "G" Lodge. It's a little breakfast and lunch diner on Route 23, just west of Valley Forge National Park. Decent food, good prices and lots of local color. I stop there when I teach at Montgomery County's Fire Academy) "

Film Journal 2018 (179 movies items)

"A somewhat OK disaster movie gets marred by Shyamalan's tendency to make very weird comedy out of every scene. There's no tension anywhere and Mark Wahlberg is in a way the worst person you could cast for this part, but as a result, he's the only truly entertaining component in all of it and sort of saves the viewing experience."

"Reason for the future sucking: Plants are able to get their revenge, on us horrible humans, by creating spores that make people attack others, and also kill themselves. Animals are also on the attack, too. Year it takes place: Unknown."

Moviewatcher122's 2017 Film Diary: Jan & Feb (28 movies items)

"February 20 "What? No!" Well, because this one the only major Shymalan film that I haven't seen yet, I decided to give in and check it out. OK, I agree with the general consensus on this one, but my thoughts on it may or may not be a little different. This entire movie is so ridiculous to a point where it's funny most of the time. Like, how does one make a movie with a scenario like this and intend it to be seen as something serious? Also this is a pure M. Night Shymalan film. It has all the"
