Title: What Is This Mean?
Post by: Rohan on January 05, 2009, 09:41:49 PM
As I was watching "The Happening" again last night. I noticed couple of small things here and there. We always notice these things later in every M.Night Shyamalan movies.

Few things I noticed, I don't know if anyone else has noticed them.

1- Grand Theft Auto video game cover is resting under the TV - When Alma is getting calls from Joey in the beginning.
2- When the officers shoots himself. Cab drivers comes out, on the cab door is written "Quaker City"
3- When Train arrives in the station - FILBERT. Read more..

According to wiki FILBERT means - a type of artist's brush.

4- At the end when the little girl goes inside the school bus. In front of the school bus says "2010".   (TLA is going to release on 2010)

I know they have some kind of meaning. Also if anyone finds more of these, please feel free to let us know.

I admire your attention to detail.
Wow.

In this case, I think youre reading too deep.
Quaker City is the name of a taxi company in Philly and Pennsylania (Quakers)

All the other stuff is random. Youre reading way too deep into it.

But I do admire your attention.

the only thing that I think might have meaning is the 2010 bus..because it's just after scene with the other TLA reference.

I like M.Night when he uses all those little symbols and codes. I am sure there are many others.

I hadn't noticed those, except for the LA bit.  Though I agree with Cleveland Heep that you might be reading too much into it.

But Gattica isn't related to M. Night Shyamalan.

Yeah, I know, but it is an M. Night Shyamalan fansite, not a Gattica fansite.

 :D I don't really have a problem with what Namaste is saying.  It's hard to communicate jokingly on webpages.  You're right Crowe, we do have off-topic forums.
