Scary movie 3...  plenty of shyamalan references..6th sense mostly..and then signs in scary movie 4 was a BIG part.

and this book:
The Village
by Bill Cassada
In 2004, a film entitled "The Village," written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, was released into theaters across the country.  The film contained a story line that explored the dynamics of a small sequestered agrarian village and the aggregate fears of its inhabitants.  Categorized as a political allegory, and viewed by critics as a psychological thriller dressed up as a folk tale, the story of "The Village" provides a strangely metaphorical connection to the modern day church and its attendant "church service," the character of which is curiously similar to what M. Night Shyamalan created in his story.

In his book "The Village," Bill compares today's institutional church to Shayamalan's Village. Is it possible that our churches, our revered and time-honored institutions, are nothing more than intellectually  fabricated temples, wrought from the mind of man, and like "The Village," hold us all in check by humanly-manufactured rules and rituals that came from the mind of man and not from God?

"...Following Shyamalan's story line to a "T," in churches today we have substituted yellow, the color of cowardice and the opposite of courage -- as our modern-day color-coded religious strategy.  Finding the real blood of Christ too powerful a substance to deal with, we substitute a man-made doctrine instead. We have replaced the life-giving red blood of Christ with the cowardly yellow color of seeker-sensitivity.  We have truly become gutless wonders who cannot face up to the truth that "the life is in the blood," and not in our intellectually conceived or humanly-fashioned golden calves..."

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.

M. Night actually appears in season 11 of South Park. Episode 10: Imaginationland.

Real funny!

I just saw an M night reference on Oprah today. Rosario Dawson was talking about reading the script for "7 pounds" and said she was hoping it wouldnt have a twist ending like a shyamalan movie that leaves you disappointed.  :x

Rosario Dawson said that? As a joke or she was serious.

too bad Seven Pounds was one of the worst movies I have ever seen -- it could have used a M. Night twist.

The guy next to me fell asleep and starting snoring. His girlfriend had to wake him up several times and say "baby, youre snoring"

He looked over at me once with a "help me get out of this freakin' theater now!" look.

Somehow, you can't view them outside the US. Sucks!
