Was looking for the new Iron Man trailer over at Apple and found these two movies that were not on my radar.

Get Smart

I loved the old Get Smart and I really like Steve Carell but Im just not sure on this one. trailers should show off some of the best parts to gain interest and I didn't even chuckle at any of this one.

The Happening

This one looks pretty cool actually. I used to hate Mark Wahlberg. I took him for a punk. But over the years he has matured and as an actor I think he is pretty top notch. the story looks spooky.

Maybe a month, but definitely not plural. At least not according to the trailer I watched from the link in that thread. Tongue

That said, I did need a reminder at how Get Smart actually looks good, and isn't just a way to kill our childhood memories (well, they were reruns for me).

You've never seen the Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, or Lady in the Water? Granted only Sixth Sense and Unbreakable are any good but M. Night Shyamalan is a fairly well known writer/director.

A quick google found a short interview with M. Night talking a little about the movie.

I found a script review, riddled with spoilers, for the Happening, and it is quite possibly the stupidest idea for a movie I've ever heard.
Spoiler for Hiden:
PLANTS AND TREES START MAKING PEOPLE KILL THEMSELVES!
I WISH I was joking, but alas somebody decided to fund that idea. If I see it, I will be drunk or something similar.

Actually I have seen Sixth Sense and Unbreakable. I didn't know they were his. Loved both.

I also enjoyed Signs and the Village, but each movie gets successively worse.  I don't know that I saw anything positive about the lady in the water, and the preview I saw for the happening seemed like the pattern may continue.  Waiting on reviews.

Yeah Signs, Unbreakable, and the Sixth Sense were good...The Village was crap, didn't even bother with the last one.  My wife wants to see this one though, but I really can't take it seriously, I was almost laughing during the trailer...oooooooo it's happening!  Maybe at the end it's all just a big surprise party for Marky Mark!  (Or the Rapture)

Signs was good up until the end.  Then, it turned to shit with the utterly bullshit 'weakness'.  I'm very 'meh' about this movie.

I think Unbreakable is one of Willis' best movies...the only thing ahead of it is Die Hard and The 5th Element. I can watch T5E everytime I catch it on. I never get tired of it. Id love to get a sequel to that movie.

Sixth Sense was as good as a pop culture phenom could be.  It had all the substance of The Blair Witch Project, you ask me.  Unbreakable, now THAT was a damn good film.  Of course, I'm speaking purely as a geek who grew up on comic books and who views Unbreakable as a great attempt at a realistic Superhero movie.

Signs, meh.

The Village, meh.

Bitch in the Pool, wtf???  Were you drinking Ripple all night when you wrote that script, M?

I'll probably see The Happening on either PPV or netflix it, but I certainly won't make the effort to catch it a theater.

The Happening trailer looks intriguing. I'm not looking for masterpieces when I see what appears to be a sci-fi or fantasy film. HOWEVER, when I saw M. Night Shymalan, my enthusiasm was diminished - please not another movie with a "surprise twist" or gimmick. I'll probably see it anyway though.

Come on.  It's M. Night Shamalan.  What else do you expect?  slywink

That being said, isn't it ironic that since it's all he does, everyone expects the twist, regardless of how ridiculous it may be?
