The postings on rottentomatoes.com are all over the place. Some people loved this movie, others hated it with a passion. I think it sounds very interesting and thought-provoking.

I enjoyed Signs--it scared the heck out of me! And the next day, when I was bringing laundry to the cleaners, I had quite a flashback to it. The TV at the laundermat had what obviously was NASA on the screen, and I thought of similar scenes in the movie--I almost freaked out! But it turned out that the Columbia space shuttle had broken apart.

I saw it Saturday. It sucked. It's very slow. Then the twist comes. M Knight Shamalamadingdong appears to be a one trick pony with the whole twist thing in his pictures.

well, I saw it tonight.

There are criticisms I agree with...but on the whole I thought it was a pretty good movie. It's Night's most original and daring movie to date.

the ending wasn't predictable at all. OK, the contents of the box was a let down, but that wasn't the payoff.

Spoiler!:


That there is a village, in the midst of the 21st century, living in some early modern period was something I wan't expecting. The Walker family obviously arranged this and set up a security company on the outside (Walker Security) so that they could live undisturbed in a wildlife preserve.


I just thought it was so cool, but I agree that it maybe would have worked better as a short 1 hour twilight zone episode.

the mood was quiet and solemn. the acting usually subtle and well done. I didn't get the "slow" thing at all.

The dialogue was a little clunky at times, but in general it added to the idea that these people have really immersed themselves in another era, they just didn't get the dialect quiet right!

On the whole, I give the movie a 6.5/10

I get it now! I mean, I noticed the "Walker" on the hat, but I couldn't figure out the significance.

I just saw it last night...I had my hands over my face for the first hour.(I'm not good with scary movies, but I had to see this)
I really liked it.
The director was on Jay Leno or Letterman a few weeks ago and said it was originally rated "R". All he had to do to knock it down to "PG 13" was to change one sound effect.
He wouldn't say what scene it was. Now I'm wondering what sound could have been that bad, and what it was changed to.
Any ideas?

Yeah, my little sis said the same thing. Maybe when the girl screams? Hmmm...

umm... i don't know. i really like the village, and so did my friend that went with me. but my brother, his girlfriend, and his friend had nothing but bad things to say about it (they're not v. smart though, so what am i going to do... :
somewhere about a year ago i read that it really is in modern times and whatnot, but i just can't FIGURE OUT WHERE. so i already knew the whole time. dang, it was still good.

signs
the village
the sixth sense
unbreakable

peace, love & bad lemon,
toni

...is the acropolis crumbling?

heh, I don't think I have *ever* been so conflicted about a movie before. I mean, I was disappointed, obviously (and who wouldn't with those advertisements?!), but I thought that it was well-directed, well-acted, and overall, a well put together film. I think I'm going to have to see it again before making a final judgement
