The Happening

Wow, that was a terrible movie. Terrible acting, terrible writing, terrible shooting, terrible production… Just plain bad. I’m so surprised that the guy behind Unbreakable, The Sixth Sense and Signs came up with this BS.

It could have been a great movie, M. Night Shyamalan just messed it up. 20 minutes in, some crazy guy says that it’s the plants! Yeah. John Leguizamo was terrible. Marky Mark wasn’t too far behind, but Zooey Deschanel was terrible as well. There isn’t much you can do with a stinker script.

Shyamalan should just stick with coming up with ideas for movies, and stay away from writing, directing and producing movies. That’s three stinkers in a row, if I count The Lady in the Water. The Village wasn’t so bad. i did enjoy that one.

  1. Hey, Range, I’ve tagged you and Jo with a meme. I know it’s not along the lines of what you normally publish (love the reviews, BTW, saved me a few bucks when I was considering seeing The Happening) but it could make for a change. Anyhow, check out your assignment: ripplebliss.blogspot.com

  2. Hey Rachelle!

    Yep, I saw that meme this morning in my feed reader. Jo will be back over the weekend, so we’ll complete it soon.

    Yeah, the Happening was really really bad, one of the worst movies I’ve seen recently. I just continued to watch it to see how badly it would end.
