What a Movie!


I watched the Sixth Sense for just the second time last night. I remember the first time I saw it and how much it freaked me out. What a well-made movie. The benefits of renting a DVD is all the extras that come with the disk. I watched the interviews of the filmmakers and sat amazed as they discussed the painstaking effort they put in to make sure the movie was "true." That is, when someone went back and watched the movie a second time that they'd notice all of the little clues that they'd left behind. Things like the fact that Bruce Willis' character never actually moves anything that's not red (i.e. the red door handle leading to his study downstairs). It was a masterfully made movie and a wonderful story. Didn't creep me out as bad the second time.

I saw it for the first time on a cross-country flight from San Fran to ATL - and the credits were well underway before I realized what had happened. Great flick, and I think it set him up to fail to meet expectations later on down the line. We know it's an M Night movie, so we're always looking for a hook now, aren't we?

I really dig M. Night Shamalyan's flicks. "Unbreakable" and "Signs" are works of genius.

"signs" is one of my altime favorites too. Great message.

I don't get it. Was the Bruce Willis character pretending to be a ghost or something?
