Slot cars...no. I was so moved by what I just saw at the local movie-plex-o'rama that I was compelled to say something.
M. Night Shyamalan is a director that has made some very well done, very suspenseful, thoughtfully scary movies that how could you think you'd go wrong seeing the latest movie "The Happening"?
Well, what I just saw was so utterly terrible, so insultingly awful that I can barely stand it.
The dialog wasn't bad it was a joke. By the end of the movie the capacity crowd was laughing when the dying on the screen would happen. The direction of Mark Wahlberg (who I swore could act at one point in his career) and the cast collectively...god...I can only think that the other movies Mr. Shyamalan has made were a ploy to sucker us into the theater to separate us from our money without even the attempt made on his part to make anything more than 1:30 hours of what might be the single worst movie ever....yes...EVER, made.
At one point I found myself wondering, "is this supposed to be a parody?" I'm honestly still unsure.
Why didn't I leave? Well, I saw history tonight. "Showgirls" has now moved up from the bottom of the list.
If someone walks up to you on the street and at gunpoint tries to make you go see this movie...take the bullet.
