  1. It sucked.


    PLEASE DON'T GO AND SEE THIS MOVIE! You will probably ask for a refund, and that will annoy me. Only go and see this movie if you have nothing else better to do with $10 and 2 hours of your time.

    I was able to see it tonight because I work at a theatre. Earlier today, when we recieved the film, there was actually a notice from M (I refer to him as "M" because it makes me look cool) instructing us not to adjust volume levels, because there will be moments when there are only whispers, and moments where there will be loud scary noises. He said that these moments "juxtapose" one-another (I may be wrong, but I think that juxtapose wasn't the right word he was looking for), and it would ruin the film if we were asked by a customer to lower or raise the volume.

    There was probably 2 moments where people were whispering, and only one loud scary noise. :eyebrow:

    Oh, and you will probably catch on to the surprise twist ending about 20 minutes into the film. Hell I already had one twist figured out before I saw the movie.

    Anyway, its late, I'm going bowling.

    That's what I've been reading... the "twist" is only that if you're in a cave. On Mars. With your eyes closed. And your fingers in your ears.

    If I may be permitted to quote Ebert:

    ...fans of a British TV puppet show that ran from 1964 to 1966. "While its failure to secure a U.S. network sale caused the show to be canceled after 32 episodes," writes David Rooney in Variety, "the 'Supermarionation' series still endures in reruns and on DVD for funky sci-fi geeks and pop culture nostalgists." I quote Rooney because I had never heard of the series and, let's face it, neither have you. Still, I doubt that "funky" describes the sub-set of geeks and nostalgists who like it. The word "kooky" comes to mind, as in "kooky yo-yos."

    Yeah, Thunderbirds was great. I had the toys growing up. Captain Scarlet was fun too. I'd forgotten all about Stingray. Remember Joe '90?

    And Smash, my family went to North Wales on holiday a few years in a row when I wasn't even in my teens. We went to Portmeirion (where the Prisoner was filmed), was fun.

    Be seeing you...

    Doesn't matter, man. They can never give you two hours of your life back.

    No, it ends like that one Daffy Duck cartoon, where the screwball animator turns out to be Bugs Bunny. Only, it's Shayamalan behind the chair.

    I thought maybe it ended with the monster turning out to be old man McGriffin, the caretaker, in disguise. He would have gotten away with it too if it weren't for those kids and that dog.
