Title: A messagge from Nature?
Post by: ALF on July 18, 2008, 01:53:44 AM
Hi, yesterday I saw again the Happening, and it was like I had thought before: I liked it more than the first time. For those who still have doubts about the film I'd like to say that some films need time to be well appreciated, so give it time.

I like the film because it is simple and basic what it's happening, but also so scary. I like the moments when experts give their ideas about what's happening. I like the way they talk about the nature and this suddenly attack against the humans.

Did you realize about the advertising in the movie? Just after Elliot, his wife and the boys run when they see some people killing theyselves (the moment when a man dies under the machine) they cross a field and there's a big advertising about new houses in costruction. It was funny, because the advertising says on the top: YOU DESERVE IT!! I thought it was a funny messagge that Shyamalan put in the movie. yesterday watching the movie I felt that it was a messagge for the characters: you deserve it, because of what you're doing with Nature.

I got the nature getting back at humans deal, but I just wished he could have show us what was killining the people or making them kill themselves.  Anything would have been good, like giving us a close up on a flower or bush just before it's about to spray toxins out into the air.  Or anything.  Maybe I need to watch the moviwe again cause I've only seen it once.

I dont think it was so much about nature getting back at humans as it was about nature defending itself.

I noticed that sign that you are talking about "ALF". I thought it was funny, but you are right this is an message. The whole point of this movie is a message.

The experts are serious. Anything is possible, we have the brain to think about it. If you don't take care of something, that something which pretty much could be anything will decay with time.

Also agree with NAMASTE, nature defending itself here. I know there is more to explain, somehow its not coming to me to explain. That would be really appreciated if NAMASTE explain to us the point of Nature defending itself here.

Well, Wahlberg's character pretty much explained it in the movie when he talked about how certain plants release chemicals to repel or attract certain animals..they have poisons, etc.

Yeah, at least the message is pretty simple in the movie.

Matter of opinion and facts.

well i think it is important..its just not earth shaking because it's so obvious. it's like saying, "the fact that the craft in War of the World were trying to 'teraform' earth is very important to the movie"


(lol how ironic to use the word "teraform" when in reality they were trying to un-teraform the earth..i just don't know any word to describe what they were actually doing)

seriously.  I walked around inside the park for two days bowing.  some subliminal message.  perhaps.  so average.  almost like a soap.  without thinking, I began picking stuff up.  sounded like mother nature saying, "while your down there."  then me myself and I , well, we all had to get tickled.  (silently)  perhaps I'm merely off my rocker.  I only opened my eyes because I figured he might ought to be paying more attention to his patients.  other than that, he may look out the window as often as he'd like.  sharp instruments and all that they are.  cuckoo cuckoo

interesting. I hope no one asks me to explain that. It's hard enough to explain it to myself, let alone someone else. But i think i understand what you're getting at here. i like how you use "soap" to describe average, and windows as sharp objects (or was it his [your?] eyes? or are the eyes the window to the soul?).

all of them birds watching him work.  I was thinking about that while he was working on my mouth.  I felt God the moment I arrived.  then I asked him about his job.  almost made me reflect on myself for a moment.  you can't talk out loud while someone's hand is in your mouth.  that explains the video I watched on the deaf just the other night.  hold on.  I'll go look for the title.

It's called "dreams SPOKEN here".  Then it says.  "She is deaf.  But she can hear.  And speak.  And dream."  then that part reminded me of the earth.  because the word earth looks like the word heart.  but that's just the way I see it.  Namaste.  I see it all around me.

I know what you mean about not being able to speak out loud when the hand of God is in your mouth. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it's not there. and just because you can't hear, doesnt mean you can't listen.
