    The Happening

    Anybody seen this yet? I think it just came out tonight. Anyways, I'm going to see it either tonight or tomorrow, and wanted any reviews.

    I'm jazzed to see it. M. Night could do a 2 minute trailer for microwave popcorn and I'd watch it.


    I believed in Gene Chizik and all I got was this lousy limited-edition commemorative coin.

    Rottentomatoes says it doesn't come out until the 13th...

    I'm interested in seeing it, but I'll wait to see what reviews say about it.

    Oh really? That's a bummer - I thought it came out tonight? I guess it's good we didn't go to the theater expecting to see it tonight. May have to look for a different movie tomorrow.

    Re: The Happening

    M. Knight has had a cold streak. Signs was a great flick until the end, when you saw the alien. Ruined it. Should have just left that thing as either a figment of imagination for the most part, or very blurred or quick shots of it, like when it walked past the hedge row.

    That's why I think Blair Witch was one of the scariest movies I have ever seen...because the antagonist was never seen.

    And the Marketing strategy for it was one of the best I've ever seen. I remember everyone talking about the movie after they did that fake documentary about how the story really happened. Hard to imagine that they made it for only 65K only to have it gross over a 100 million in the theaters.
