Title: Do you M. Night has the potential to "maybe" be the next Spielberg?
Post by: Prince111 on June 18, 2008, 02:42:40 PM
Hello.  This my be an old topic.  I'm new here.  Even though M. Night has had a blunder here or there, with a lot of maturing, directing other people's material (providing that it's awsome material), not just the source, but the screenplay written by someone else.  Also work with other composers, (not that I don't like Mr. Howard, because I love his work), just to have a different flavor, I really believe he has a good chance at it.  I put The Sixth Sense on par with Jaws and Signs right up there with Close Encounters of the Third kind.  Now this comparison may alittle far fetched, but I have faith in him.  What does everyone think?  :) :) ;D ;D

He will defenitely surpass Speilberg, at least be as good as him (which i think he already is)

I think he should never stop working with James Newton Howard. To me, that would seem like a very big mistake.

I also don't see him as being the next Spielberg because they are not so similar as director's or writers. Sure, they DO share things in common, but they are different people with different goals as film-makers ultimately.

I do think that he has the potential to be considered just as classic a film-maker as Steven Spielberg or Alfred Hitchcock though... but only time will tell. At this point in his career it is hard to say. Hopefully The Last Airbender will be a huge success for him.

Speilberg is a disgusting sellout! Night is already fifty thousand times better than him! >:(

Are you kidding me? Spielberg is one of the greatest director's ever.

I don't think Night is the next anyone. He's in his own league and can't be compared to other directors. He's very unique and he's defining his own career instead of walking in anyone else's footsteps.

I agree with your sentiment. He's doing his own thing.

I agree.

Steven Spielberg is one of my favorites and M.Night Shyamalan is one of my all time favorites. I love some of Steven's movies, but I love all M.Night movies. Steven Spielberg is one of the biggest and most talented directors in Hollywood and M.Night is one of the most talented writers, director and producers in Hollywood. I have mentioned this before, M.Night Shyamalan name is powerful today than Steven spielberg. If we talk about Spielberg we will hear lots adventure movies and we talk about Shyamalan we will talk suspense, thriller, emotion, characters, music, scene, poetry, it has almost a shakerspearean feeling to it.

Close Encounter with the third kind is my all time favorite movie of Steven Spielberg. I love that movie. I am waiting for his movie about Abraham Lincoln and it will be a great movie I am sure.

And no matter what people say about these two genius artists. The fact is that they both are talented and knows what to do. I would love to see the team of SPIELBERG and SHYAMALAN.

I just think that M.Night Shyamalan doesn't want to become the new Spielberg. He could do it if he wanted, but I think he doesn't.
Steven Spielberg is a master, I don't have doubts about it, but some of his movies were done with the only purpose of get money to support his personal and particular proyects. Jurassic Park was a film made to have money for Schindler's List, and Indiana Jones IV was a fast way to get moeny for his next film, about President Lincoln. In those commercial films you see a great Spielberg, but also a man who just looks for a material purpose: get money.

I'd really prefer that Shyamalan wanted to be nearer to the artist Alfred Hitchcok, who was a revolution in the cinema history and who gave to the rest of moviemakers a way to follow.

What does that question even really mean?  How does one define what being "the next Spielberg" is? 

I don't think Night is the next anyone. He's in his own league and can't be compared to other directors. He's very unique and he's defining his own career instead of walking in anyone else's footsteps.

This is how I feel as well.  I like a greater percentage of Night's movies than Spielberg's, but then Spielberg has made many more.  I think the main comparison that I like to use with Spielberg and Shyamalan is that when people are ripping on Night for making a dud here and there, they seem to forget that all directors, even Spielberg make a bad movie now and then.  Other than that though, they are each their own person.

Oh, I don't see why hed want to be like Spielberg, he's much better, more original. He was supposed to direct, write, and produce the fourth Indiana Jones movie, but he gracefully turned down their offer. Now  that Spielberg makes it instead, few people like it. I certainly didnt, and I love M. Night's movies, and the way he creates them.

In my opinion becoming Spielberg isn't positive. Being spielberg if nothing then means having no ideas of it's own, and building everything on someone's past or work. Since sire Manoj starts directly from the point of idea, I cannot possibly compare the two. 'course, my opinion, again, is that Manoj was "better" than him far back with sense or unbreakable. Don't care about budget or sfx.

He isn't Spielberg at all, and I prefer him one thousand times !  Of course, he didn"t make the same movies but I think his art is deeper. Just my opinion

He's at the beginning, he hasn't the long list of films that Spielberg has. When M. Night Shyamalan will have done more than 20 movies anyone will compare him with nobody, and his style will be compleltly defined. His name will be in the list of artists of the cinema, and new directors after him will be compared with M. NIght Shyamalan.

Anyway, being compared with Spielberg after some films is a great beginning, but for me with the films he's done untill now he has convinced myself that he's better.

M.Night movies takes your deep inside the story. It makes you feel that you are there part of the story. When I was watching SIGNS I had the feeling. I was scared to death. I will never forget how scared I was after watching SIGNS.
