Hate to say this...but "The Happening" got nominated in a number of categories this time around.

There will be time when M.Night Shyamalan will win an Academy Award as the best director. Mark my word.

I agree. He's gonna hit it some day.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

I'm not sure about that, not because I don't believe he deserves it, just because I think some of the men who decide who's gonna take an Award don't like what Shyamalan does, and Shyamaln won't make a movie following the "Oscar way of filming" to get an award, so things should change to see Shyamalan receiving an award.

But the most important is that I don't care if he's nominated for the razzies or never gets an award, I like very much what he does, and most of my favourites movies never got an award.

Well, I would like to see Shyamalan spread his wings a little bit more. Doing Avatar is a great first step. A great director is a director that could direct anything. I would like to see Shyamalan do something a little more "serious"

You're absolutely right, I wish he would just make a regular movie, no twist, no turns, no creepy atmoshere, no deep meanings, just a steak and potatoes kind of movie, although I doubt that'll ever happen.

yeah, what can you do? He should have known better.


Yep, he sure should have.

Prince111, you're absolutely right, just a simple, good film would be great for his image.  I think Avatar will help with that too.

Nope. He's used his 3 best idea's. There was nothing in reserve (as the next 3 proved). It wasn't that long ago he was contemplating Unbreakable 2 ffs.

He deserves the Razzie for worst screenplay. Director - not sure. He captured some of the worst acting ever seen so i suppose the blame for that does ultimately lie with him.

What the hell happened to "The next Steven Spielburgh" :(

Well yeah I think he just ran out of good idea's. Don't think his directing got worse really, still can make you jump. Can't say he sold out early really. He did sell out with "gore shock Happening" BS but that was after staying true to himself with Village and Lady so fair play to him there.

So it's not his fault really just feel sorry for him now. He can't just make more original idea's. (Although he really could have done more with the taking advantage of planet adapts to kill us idea thing)



You're absolutely right, I wish he would just make a regular movie, no twist, no turns, no creepy atmoshere, no deep meanings, just a steak and potatoes kind of movie, although I doubt that'll ever happen.


Awww man what are you guys saying that was all the things I loved about him!!

Hmmm I do wonder what it would be like though...

What is a standard kind of straight film though?? Give me an example? Cast Away? lol literally all that I can think of.

Guy crashes on Island, lives there for a while, goes home.

I actually love that film. One of my favourite's.


Behind The Sixth Sense. Unbreakable. And Signs.

Yeah, I'm with steinman when he says the abnormal is what made shyamalan great. Normal people in paranormal situations is his specialty. No one can do it (on film) like he can.

Yeah, but look at his movies, they all explore different genres, now he's going to the kid/action genre.
