M Night Shyamalayan's answer to every bit of criticism he ever recieved. Agreed Murrin - simply the best!

No, I don't think making two good films is all it takes to avoid the fact that all the rest were bad.

Now I loved 'Unbreakable' - but also very much liked 'Signs', 'The Village', 'The Sixth Sense' and 'Stuart Little'. 'The Lady in the Water' and 'The Happening' were in my opinion not so bad as painted - they just appeared so against the backdrop of his best work - and 'The Last Airbender' was a kids film that I bet most kids who saw it loved. All that remains is 'After Earth' [and his earliest stuff] which I have not seen. I don't see it as a bad record at all.

Unbreakable is, to date, his best movie by far.

Watched another good superpower movie yesterday - Chronicle. Was great, but lost it a little at the end when Andrew turned bad. Though the funniest moment in the film was during that part, when Matt confronts a certain bus.

I watched The Piano Teacher (La Pianiste) last night, and was very impressed. Not an easy movie to watch, but then I have a penchant for watching psychologically disturbed movies.

Also watched yesterday: The Muppets (the 2011 film with Jason Segel).

Kind of a mess of a film. Good ideas, badly executed. Some of the song parts just seemed disjointed from the surrounding scenes, and overall it tended to feel... off. I'm not sure if it was a failure of writing or direction, though I'm leaning toward the latter.

It might be a mess, but it's a Muppet mess. I thought it was great, and I'm not ashamed to say that I completely lost it when Kermit started singing "Rainbow Connection".

went and saw Captain America - Winter Soldier.

my 2nd favorite comic book movie, after the first Cap in the series.

saw with it with Julie. she knows little about the comic and enjoyed it very much.
I know tons about the comic and enjoyed it very much.
this is how you should do comic book movies. make it enjoyable for both audiences.

there are enough Easter eggs to satisfy us hard core fans. and Julie likes me being there to point them out.

5 out of 5 stars.

I went to see Horns today. Enjoyed it, it's good. Kind of a dark fantasy, with a bit of humour in it.

Very good, and very disturbing.

Try Possession, with Isabelle Adjani.

Don't try Irreversible. I mean, the movie as a movie is incredible. But the plot is nauseating. And real, every day, in every city.

In total disagreement. It's an altogether different ballgame. I don't press play to watch "Vargtimmen" or "Pelle Erobreren" with the same expectations I press play to watch "The Princess Bride" or Mitty. Context. And in context, it was great.

It is, although Signs was IMHO poorly appraised because most critics missed the point that MNS didn't want to make a movie around a plot, but rather about a meta-plot, if you will, or the reason for a real plot as things go. Reason being the keyword. It's not about aliens who are allergic to water. It's about holography and the quantum mind.

Just saw Mockingjay part 1. Decent enough, suffers a little from being one small chunk of a bigger story, and from a dumb plot point or two made more to create suspense or suprise the audience than to actually make sense; but if you liked the first two, you'll like this one.

Fight Club

Have been watching lately anything by David Fincher.
I'd watched Fight Club years ago but I'd forgotten almost all of it, strangely enough - I couldn't even remember how it ended.

And with Fincher's use of subliminal messaging, every time I think of the film I start to laugh - then wonder how Laughing suddenly Shocked get the hot's for Helen Bonham Carter.
