M. Night Shyamalan with a underrated classic
 

 
So the film is out now with a proper rip.

But bruh got the best film in 2021, and people are sleeping.

His best film since Signs in 2002.

Gotta disagree with on this one OP.

Old was mediocre at best. Don't get me wrong, there's some redeeming qualities. The look of the movie was amazing, as well as the premise. However, the performances with some of the characters took me out of the movie. Some of them didn't feel believable and there were times I didn't feel a true sense of urgency.

What also did it for me was the plot twist about the reason they were on the island which I think was a cheap cop out and clunky.

It deserves a watch, MAYBE a 2nd viewing, but after that, but after that's it.

And Split was his best film since Signs.

I disagree on this one. I wanted to turn this movie off halfway through.

There was no payoff. It was a good idea but poor execution.

Yeah I respectfully disagree.

Not that I thought it was terrible but just forgettable for me.

I respect him but would never pay to watch his work. His movies are either near classic or complete trash.

so many people said it was trash, but thanks for the rip alert... will check out



edit: yea, I don't know why the critics were so harsh on this one... wasn't bad at all.... had a questionable moment or two, but I thought it was well done....ending could have been a little more lively as well

I was mad about how long it took them to come to the conclusion that the beach was on some wild sh*t... Like y'all obviously see the kids aged 5+ years and these n*ggas talking about viruses

Edit: I thought the whole town was in on the plan and for some reason they needed the visitors to die because they're cursed or maybe they just wanted to just rob them

This was more in the middle the acting sometimes is what really took me out of it or maybe it was the dialogue written... Some of the characters just did too many dumb sh*t

Only saw two films in theaters this year. This and Minari

"Old" was great. I've always been an M. Night fan. His catalogue is uneven, but he doesn't deserve the hate he gets.

People are corny and will latch on to any copy and paste, low hanging fruit joke or narrative about an artist that makes them feel like they have a "smart" take on popular culture

South Park or Family Guy does a bit about something/someone and all of a sudden everybody just regurgitating the same take

Same follower n*ggas who hate on M. Night for bringing inventive stories to the big screen, also applaud all these rinse/repeat Marvel/comic book movies as high "cinema"

I loved it but if you watch it with someone who is not familiar with his work they will be indifferent. I like the weird twists that's what you watch his movies for

There is also a book which I heard is interesting
[spoiler - click to view]

For me it seems like he tries too hard to have some sort of Hitchcock like twist in his movies
He shouldnt even be allowed to make movies after The Last Airbender.

How do you fu*k up when the source material is perfect
