Opinions, uh, vary
about the quality of the films on M. Night Shyamalan's resume
. What's perhaps less controversial is that he has enjoyed a tremendously fruitful collaboration with veteran composer James Newton Howard
, who has scored each of his films since The Sixth Sense
. Here are some highlights of Newton Howard's often-beautiful work for these often-maligned films. [more inside]
Dear M. Night Shyamalan,
Sincerely, Omer Mozaffar.
It's Bad Movie Club
night! You have until 9 GMT / 4 ET to procure #1: a Twitter account
and #2: a copy of M. Night Shyamalan's critically misunderstood masterpiece
, The Happening
. Good luck
Graham Linehan, of Father Ted and IT Crowd fame, will be your master of ceremonies
, and there will be a second screening at midnight GMT / 7 ET, hosted by Phill Jupitus. But remember kids, piracy is stealing
Wes Anderson does a 2-minute commercial for American Express.
(YouTube link). As you might expect from Wes Anderson, the results are "quirky" to say the least. Another bigshot director, M. Night Shayamalan, has made one as well
. This certainly isn't the first time big companies have hired A-list directors.
I wonder who's next?
Something about this
really makes me mad. I saw the trailer for this movie and was totally blown away. They even have a cool url. So I decided to check it out... boy was I disappointed. Sure, they have a neat intro.. but half the stuff on the site is "Coming Soon" and the link for the trailer doesn't even work! How frustrating is that?
If you've seen Sixth Sense, check this out.
There's an analysis of the symbolism used all throughout the film. Lots of it makes sense, but I didn't notice too much of it during the movie.
