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

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?

" I'm not sure why, but my boyfriend thought it would be funny to force me to watch M. Night Shyamalan movies (I can only write his name correctly bc I myself am Indian). So we got blunted and settled in to watch this garbage and omg M. Night's reputation exceeds him, but this was too much. I could hardly bear looking at Mark Wahlberg's short porcile face and watching him struggle to act. I'm sure he was just contemplating his fat paycheque the whole time. Zooey Deschanel, this hipster indie t"

"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."
