Sssssppppppare

I watched M. Night Shyamalan's "The Village" the other night. Bruther, since "The Sixth Sense", it's been all downhill.

You have to suspend some disbelief, but I did find "The Village" to be somewhat thought provoking!

Good Call Bear. However, I did like the Jewish apologist movie "Signs"

I thought "The Village" was really intresting (and I was clued into the ending beforehand.)

I LOVED that movie! It was thought provoking and had beautiful cinematography!

Both movies were very good in their own right. Sixth sense because of the surprise ending... the village not because of its ending, but because of the tremendous effort to bring family back to simpler times. Even if it meant putting some fear in them. Seems fear, any fear at all, these days is absent. I for one, think fear is pretty healthy! Do you?

10:54 anon: NO!

Fear can keep small children safe before they are old enough to reason. Fear should not be used by a government against it's people.

I think I read this somewhere: "Be not afraid..."

Thanks 9:42 AM! Glad someone understands my attempt at reasonable explanation. haha!

9:27, our government uses fear to keep us "inline" constantly.... ever heard of the IRS? hmmmm?

(But that was NOT what I was talking about)

I loved "The Village". I tend to suspend disbelief a bit too much while reading and watching movies, so I'm always surprised...then again, it's no fun if you figure it out before hand. M. Night is a creative guy; if it's got his name on it, I'll see it; although he should refrain from appearing in ALL of his movies...a bit too Spike Lee.
