I finally watch the movie last Friday night! :scared:

I don't get what people told me it's such a wasted or one of most disappointment movies but I really like it. Even I know the ending was a little ridiculous but that's the main idea what is movie all about.

To be honest, Bryce Dallas Howard who played by Ivy, don't even have a clue how to role being a blind person! I actually didn't realised she's blind until half way of the movie where she has told that Noah has blood around his hands and she running to check if Lucius was OK. Also, I donít like that bloody annoying Elizabethan language!

I was wonder if the children of the village have seen a plane over the sky? Wait a minute, itís a bird. :haha:

I think it would have been better if there really were monsters in the forest instead of the twist.

I haven't liked any of the guy's movies except 6th sense. Unbreakable and Signs blew... unbreakable more so... Signs had potential but the way they aliens died at the end with a spritz of water was cheesy.

I think it's would be better if For Those Who Not Speak Of is a real monster.

Did you know there are still many people around the world who have never seen an airplane in their life especially in those remote jungle areas. But that was funny though :devil: :devil: :devil: :devil:

"Unbreakable" did suck. Actually, I didn't like "The Sixth Sense" at all either..

But I loved The Village! It's awesome! A really really good movie, I think!

I didn't think it was that bad but I thought they went a bit overboard on the whole twist thing.

I know that's what we come to expect from his films but I almost would have preferred it if there had actually been monsters in the woods !

Still, love to see Sigourney again :hearts:.

But didn't you think she was wasted in this movie? She should have been in it more... or had more significant things to do. Guess I'll just have to wait for her next movie :(

I was waiting for her to go into the woods and create some serious red-caped monster carnage a la Ellen Ripley :armed:.

What did I get instead ?

Some random blind girl in the forest and horrible nightmares about her and William Hurt getting frisky together :explode:.

Sorry if that last line in any way spoiled the plot for those of you that haven't seen it LOL.

Imaginary Heroes (Gala)http://www.ctv.ca/mini/filmFest2004/static/reviews/images/4star.gif
Directed by Dan Harris



Sigourney Weaver and Emile Hirsch are outstanding in this tragic-comedy about a family coming to terms with death. After older son Matt (Kip Pardue), a promising athlete, shoots his brains out, dad (Jeff Daniels) becomes catatonic, mom (Weaver) turns to pot and sister Penny (Michelle Williams) holes up in her college dorm. The only person holding the family together - sort of - is 17-year-old Tim (Hirsch) who experiments with drugs and sex in order to feel ďnormalĒ again. But his antics with troubled best friend Kyle (Ryan Donowho, in a terrific performance) unleash some surprising family secrets. Worth checking out.

I thought The Village was awesome.

I loved 6th sense and Signs too.

Havent seen Unbreakable but I hear bad things.

M. Night Shyamalan is an awesome director. I love the way he gives himself little bit-parts in all his movies :D

The movie was different and with Hollywood making the old standard crap all the time, these types of movies are refereshing.

A question was posed why the children never saw a plane? Well if you remember, they paid people to not fly planes over the village.

I got the DVD in the mail as an Academy member, watched it, and then sold it on E-Bay. It was ok, the problem is, this director is so known for "twists" that you watch all of his movies now not believing anything you see, so I figured early on about the monsters, so that was no surprise, and then it dawned on me about half-way through what the twist would be at the end. But I'm an Oscar-winner with 60 years in the biz, so maybe I'm better at picking up things in flicks like these.

Elizabethian English is far different. The language in the movie is just semi-correct English. They don't even use whence, thither, etc., which true grammatical purists insist upon using.

Exactly. All his movies have some kind of gimic. It was cool the first time but really, the man needs to move on. M. Knight... if you're listnening I'm not dissing you so please don't overlook me for one of your movies k? :kiss:
