Default The Happening. What the fuck??

Yes, i'm not even abbreviating what the fuck, as i feel its massively deserved. Possibly one of the worst films i've ever seen (Obviously not including Battlefield Earth). I mean the plot what just baffeling stupid and dull, but what was with the acting??? I know Mark Whalberg and Zooey Deschenal can act, i've seen them act very well in other films, but fuck me, it's like they were deliberatly trying to act badly in it, some of the worst acting i've ever seen.

So yeah, what the fuck?

I guess the plastic plant scene didn't do it for you eh

But no it was pretty damn awful.

I think Shyamalan was aiming for a suspense horror like, The Birds where you never know what's gonna happen next. But the predictability of the scenes, well...ruined that.

Well he did The Village...oh wait...

Didn't he have something to do with The Last Airbender?
And of course! He did some work on Stuart little! That means he might have Michael J. Fox watching his back, you don't mess with the Fox!

But no he has had alot of ups and downs in the industry and The Happening is definately not one of his high points

The only film of his I actually enjoyed watching was Unbreakable.
Other than that his films are predictable, poorly written, poorly directed and over hyped crap.

OOOO yeah i remember that movie. It was pretty neat. I do agree with the rest of what you said. I think he received so much credit after 6th sense that he couldn't live up to it after. Everytime he puts out a new film people start raving about it before they see it and think it'll be great because it's by him but they are crap for the most part

I'm surprised anyone's even let him do a movie since the last 5 bad movies he's made. Really, he needed to just leave on a high note after Signs. His movies lately have actually made me sorry to be a member of humanity...and I think of myself as a Human Supremacist.

I couldn't even make myself finish watching it. It was just too enormously shit. My dad has watched it twice but, then again, I once had to stop him form watching a documentary about a traveling sand dune.

The last Shamalamadindong movie I actually enjoyed was probably Signs, though I can't say the same for my dog. When I came down the morning after I watched it, I saw that my dog had literally left a crap circle in front of the television. Who says dogs don't have a sense of humour?

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.
