What ever happened to Shyamalan?

You know, M. Night Shyamalan, the former writer, director and producer of critically acclaimed movies such as The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs, to name a few? He is most certainly missing in action. 

You know, action, like writing, directing and producing recent amazingly crappy movies such as Lady in the Water and The Happening? Yeah, M. Night Shyamalan, totally missing from that action. 

I just finished watching The Happening. I tell you, it has been thirty minutes since I finished the movie, but I will still be thinking about how awesomely bad this movie was tomorrow, one week from now, and maybe next month. 

As a fan of the former Shyamalan, I really don't like the new Shyamalan. I am not in the habit of giving unsolicited advice. I am also not keen on offering up advice to extremely successful people, but if I were given the chance, I would tell Shyamalan to slow down. I don't need a movie from you every three years. In fact, I don't need anymore if they continue on this trend. You take your time with the next one. Write like you used to. You have enough money to hang around for a while without making another movie, right? I think you might. Take a vacation. Get your muse back, son, because The Happening really made me miss it.

I AGREE. unfortunately the movie sucked and the acting was horrible. If I had the chance, I would have a little conversation with Marky Mark too.

I enjoyed Lady in the Water, but The Happening is one of the worst films Ive ever paid to see. I wish I could get my $9 back, or at least relive that day so I could get up and walk out of the theatre.
