Alright, first of all, I will say that you should not let the discouraging results of M. Night's last movie to sway you away from seeing this one. Yes, we all know that the Village was a let down, and though the same lady leads in this one…it's astonishing.
Yes, there are cheesy parts. Yes, I giggled A LOT. Yes, I even critisized it when I left the theater. but the more and more I thought about it, the more and more I liked it.
Furthermore, when I read up on it, it seems that Lady in the Water was a story that he began telling his children, just out of the blue. Whatever popped into his head, he said, and it turned into this long legacy type story. And after the story was done, they children and him would come up with backstories about the characters and all this. Really it's quite endearing.
Plus, with my current theme in life being the whole “Whats the greater theme/meaning in the universe” and everyone being connected and finding your greater purpose…really it fit in so very nicely with that.
It's -not- a scary movie. Though Lexington did jump…twice…heheh, if you're paying attention, you'll see it coming and be just fine.
Utterly delicious, I loved it.July 27, 2006 at 4:00 am #149027drainMember
Would it be scary to a person who gets scared easily in scary movies and tries to avoid them as much as possible?
That was totally hypothetical. 😉July 27, 2006 at 4:49 am #149024
Believe me, I'm about one of the most skiddish people in the world when it comes to scary movies. And I do avoid them at all costs when it comes to the theater unless I have someone I can curl up with and burry my face into. And I didn't have a problem in the least.July 27, 2006 at 5:04 am #149028drainMember
*Big sigh* I feel better. My friend might make me see it. She likes to torture me with scary movies.July 27, 2006 at 5:43 am #149025
Ah, well then no worries *wink* The previews make it come off like it's a scary movie, but really, I didn't think it was in the least. It's more mystery and fantasy than a horror movie.August 2, 2006 at 2:49 am #149026MrOatsMemberSami wrote:Yes, we all know that the Village was a let down,
Hey, I liked the Village! … Sort of… :p
I read the article about this movie in TIME magazine while in my dentist's waiting room (reflecting on news of 3 cavities 😮 )Sami wrote:Furthermore, when I read up on it, it seems that Lady in the Water was a story that he began telling his children, just out of the blue. It was interesting when I heard that, I'm definately going to see. =)
EDIT: Just got back from seeing the movie. … To tell you the truth, that was -the best- writing/plot I've seen in a long time for any movie.
I think it was very well written and everything, 4 Stars! Do not expect anything very horriffic or action-y though, and do pay attention! :p
