    Well, it kind of is.

    I think the Village was the worst of Shayamalan's for the big twist being obvious almost from the off. It's actually quite a good film in places but the last half hour is so pointless.

    Also Superman 3.
    The crazy robot lady at the end?

    Any Netflix library in the world for a couple of quid a month? Gimme!

    Um... I was not expecting that till she climbed the fence.

    /sheepish

    EDIT: even when you realise who/what the monster is, I still didn't twig why he'd been doing it.

    Does it restore my credibility any that I can identify whodunnit on CSI the moment they utter their first line?

    Hulk changing moment is scary because of the sound as much as anything, I reckon. Before he changes you usually got the orchestral tension music and when it kicks in that high-pitched whine followed by a really creepy chorus (like here). It really sold it to me as a nipper =D

    Ha, it's very much still a guilty pleasure of mine.

    I think The Village was okay, mostly because of Pheonix though, ending wasn't hugely shocking, but still okay.

    I prefer Unbreakable and Signs as my M. Night pleasures :)

    Signs may well be my most hated film ever. Mainly because it so good for the first 2 thirds, and then proceeds to wipe its cock all over you face going "ha ha you fucking idiot, I can't believe I made you think this was going somewhere you twat" in the final third.

    Still, not as bad as The Lovely Bones though.

    That's why I liked it ;)

    I know what you mean, it did peter off, but I still enjoy it for the first 2/3 which were great.

    I quite liked it as well but not sure I could take a Mel Gibson film these days.

    The Littlest Hobo is one of the best karaoke songs ever.

    I've just finished watching John Ford's The Horse Soldiers. A 1959 Technicolor Civil War film starring John Wayne and William Holden (in his sole Ford appearance, I believe). Like most of Ford's later stuff, this is a fairly slow-moving, casual affair, in which Ford feels he has nothing to prove, but enjoys the ride nonetheless. It's obviously not as stunning as My Darling Clementine or The Searchers, nor as serene as She Wore a Little Yellow Ribbon, but it does have a few brilliant scenes (the military camp life at the beginning and "the children's crusade later" on). Great colour work as well. Worth a watch if you're a John Ford / John Wayne / old school Hollywood fan.

    Don't be guilty about it mate, I still like many of those Van Damme films, that one with Lance Henrikson in it is amazing. Look at the hair do. Brilliant!

    Oh and Unbreakable is definitely his best film for me, I love the scene with his son and the gun.

    V/H/S 5%

    Quite possibly the biggest piece of shit I seen since I flushed the toilet after eating at nandos. Absolutely no redeeming characters Each story was crap and the effects used to make it seem like a old video were rubbish.

    Sinister 69%

    Enjoyed more the second time watching it. Basic ghost'em up with some great sound work and the super 8 tapes were great. Definitely had its moments but wrapped up a little too quickly.

    Looper 92%

    Probably my favorite film of last year. Absolutely excellent stuff. Love the overall shite quality of the future and the small things like the eye-drop drugs, the amount of vagrants and the blunderbuss.

    Ted 50%

    Another word with three letters is Meh.

    I used to put pegs on my fingers and chase my brother round, pretending to be that robot. He was absolutely petrified of her.

    Flight

    One of the best opening half hours of any movie ever. The crash is a stunning piece of work. Loses it's way a bit half way through but still thoroughly watchable, great Goodman role.

    I saw a few things when I was far too young - Robocop, Candyman and Terminator all spring to mind - and they did have pretty profound affects on me. I wouldn't say they've given me problems as such, but I certainly didn't enjoy them as a mature adult would have, and Candyman was deeply disturbing in a not fun way.
    I remember joining scouts at the age of 11, a few months in we went on a midnight hike on a Friday night. This consisted of watching candyman in complete darkness in the scout hall til about 11 o'clock, then going for 10ish mile walk, before going back to the scout hall at 1-2am and watching children of the corn and trying to get to sleep. As you can imagine the older boys thought it hilarious to keep scaring us throughout the hike.

    The only time I've ever been genuinely scared by a film. I honestly think it's really desensitised me from horror films now, nothing really phases me which is kind of a shame =/

    The Lost Boys was the first horror that I saw, I was about 10. I still love that film.

    Get bent.

    I can only remember two horror films seriously fucking with my head as a nipper. One was a Hammer film, I think (maybe Amicus), about a neanderthal skeleton that started growing its flesh back when it got wet.

    The other was the fetish doll segment in Trilogy of Terror which resulted in many years of turning the light off, then doing a run and jump onto the bed because it could have been hiding underneath it.

    I think there was something seriously wrong with my dad because he let us watch literally anything from the age of about 7 or 8. When I was 8 I was off with chicken pox so he got me some films to watch while I was off. He got Michael Jacksons Moonwalker and Blue Jean Cop. Seriously dad, what the hell?

    By the time I hit senior school I couldnt understand why none of my class mates had seen the complete works of arnie when I had seen every 80s action film released.

    As a kid I remember visiting my Dad at weekends and watching films on laser discs! Thing is I don't remember him having many, so I seemed to have watched Blade Runner, Lucky Luke and Raiders of the Lost Ark repeatedly (this would have been when I was about 12/23 too) :)

    I also used to watch Terminator 2 on fairly regular (almost weekly) basis with my mates when I was 13/14.

    Loved watching films I wasn't supposed too growing up :D

    Isn't that M Night Shayamalamanam's trademark?
