I'm always interested in Shyamalan's work. He's done some great, and often bizarre, movies (among a few bad ones).

Honestly, enjoy his bad ones as well.

Always know at least in for an interesting watch.

It feels like an episode of The Twilight Zone stretched to a two-hour runtime. And the title is so generic, it's a pain in the ass to look up any info on this movie.

At any rate, maybe I'll catch it when it comes on HBO, but I don't see myself going to the theaters for this. I'll pass

But... clothing doesn't grow in size when aging.

Sure, there's always some weirdness in all his movies that you rarely find in Hollywood blockbusters. Except After Earth - that was pure trash.

Can't say seen that one.

Last movie watched was Glass. Poor implementation, but the ideas behind it are great.

Also like (forced or not) how small scale it feels in contrast to the Marvel type stuff we are indundated with.

Basically just takes place in a hospital with 3 rooms, and then outside in its car-lot.

@uninspiredcup: Yeah without the scope, resources and spectacle of most superhero movies, Shyamalan had to make due with intriguing ideas and compelling characters in order to create his own minuscule superhero universe.

The execution is nothing of particular note, but it feels refreshingly nostalgic of much simpler times when movies had some thought and soul put into them.

Unbreakable and Glass OSTs were also pretty great.

The last M. Night Shyamalan movie I've actually seen is The Happening. I was super close to walking out of the theater for that one, and I probably would have if I wasn't with a group of friends at the time.

@johnd13: Yes. Beautiful soundtrack. and generally speaking, brillaint movie;. Surprised by how little Glass uses it.

Like the scene where it's fighting the orange guy and just get the highened soundtrack adds so much.

And then kinda watch him fighting "The Hoard" doing something similar with the truck, feels very empty. Also goes on for way too long. Small scale but he's clearly trying to blow his load.
