The Happening (M. Night Shyamalan, 2008)

It’s certainly because Lady in the Water blew, and might be because his “American Express” ad and “Entourage” appearance were overblown and pompous, but it’s probably because no one likes a guy who tells you it’s his before you’ve even asked. “M. Night Shyamalan’s…giant turd in the toilet,” “M. Night Shyamalan’s…not going to get you to believe in his twist,” “M. Night Shyamalan’s…” you get the idea. Dude, your movies have been hit or miss, but usually entertaining in a “this’ll do” sort of way. But what is with this preamble on every single thing you make? In the case of The Happening, it’s only making us wonder how a movie with one of the most boring names of all time would even be the kind of thing you’d want to put your name on. Particularly since the tide has turned on you a bit. Well, at least Zooey’s getting a chance to shine. — Johnny Loftus
