Couch Potato Club:
Universal Studios has announced that Devil will be getting a home release in December this year. M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller will release on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital Download on December 21, 2010, just in time for Christmas.
Take it from me, do NOT waste your money. If the name of the director on the box wasn't enough to push you away, and the fact a "horror movie" is releasing during the holidays still wasn't enough...then take someones word for the third strike. Its a horrible movie, i wont even be renting it....
Shyamalan's name alone proves to be strike 1, 2 AND 3 for me lol.
Why is that? I really liked his first few movies. "The Sixth Sense" is a classic. Plus having "Night" in your name is cool.
Yea, Sixth Sense was good. Unbreakable was decent. Signs was bearable. But (here's the "why"), then you have: The Village (crap) Lady in the Water (unbearable crap) The Happening (somehow he "topped" Lady in the Water and made a movie that was even more garbage) Last Airbender (somehow he managed to sink even FURTHER, this time not even dealing with his own material. well...he wrote the screenplay, but Avatar isn't his creation. And what do we get? one of the lowest rated movies on Rotten Tomatoes. Complete and utter garbage) Devil (then he tried to let somebody else direct as he just produced and wrote the story--not the screenplay, just the story. and yet again critics are panning it left and right--i refuse to watch it) So as you see, even since Sixth Sense he's been getting worse and worse. After Signs he completely fell off, even managed to pump out worse garbage each time. I lost ALL faith and cut him off after The Happening, and started losing faith in him after The Lady in the Water. By the way, I only assume when you say "first few" that you consider Sixth Sense to be his first, like most people do. But, he did have a movie before Sixth Sense called Wide Awake. Guess what...laughable at best (and that's laughing AT, not laughing WITH the movie).
I enjoyed Sixth Sense, Signs was OK. As for the rest of your movies...F*CK YOU, M Night...F*CK YOU
Well then it looks like his career is about hit bottom if it isn't already there.
Not if he takes a break and looks at what made The Sixth Sense good.
It's already there, he is 3 Strikes 'n' Out. it would be shocking if he actually made a good movie while he's at an all time low of his career.
M. Night is definitely a talented writer/director. The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs are all great movies. Sure, the quality of his films has dropped since, but I think he'll make a comeback at some point.
"The Sixth Sense" was a One hit wonder, after that he has done unbelievably bad, Some people argue that it's Racism behind all the Critics hate, They say his Movie are good, the only reason that HIS movies are such hated on is only because he's a successful 'Indian American' Director.
And thats why he doesn't listen to any of the criticism and goes on making bad movies. He thinks its just people attacking him, when its not. These people, like us, want to see him make something good again. If he would take his fake crown off then it will happen.
When Night first released the Sixth Sense I was so shocked and I thought of the movie as one of the best movies ever made. But, I could watch Unbreakable and also Signs. But after that, Terrible. I wish he would stick to his material and actually make some sense in his movies.
