I saw LADY IN THE WATER while the site was shutdown & I liked it. I think it's a good movie & I'm upset that insiders had this film reserved for failure before the public ever got a chance to see it. Seems a lot of people in Hollywood didn't like Shyamalan & were doing their best to knock him down a few levels.

Hollywood does this a few times a year & the only films I can remember overcomming the bad PR was TITANIC & BUTCH CASSITY & THE SUNDANCE KID. Cassity & Kid got bad reviews when it opened but in those days a good film could overcome bad reviewers because they opened small, to generate good word of mouth & then went city wide. Today they Pub a film to death & open on 3,000 screens. If it doesn't do well the first weekend it's dead. Even if it makes 18 million it's considered a bomb.

Say what you want about Shyamalan but he is an artist who trys doesn't play it safe, making comershal superhero crap & seguels like everyone else in Hollywood. He has talent & his movies are well made. After 5 money winners in a row, he's now in the shithouse.

LADY IN THE WATER in one of only good movies I've seen this Summer. I also liked THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA.---Yohe

Steve,

I think the best movie out there right now is probably 'Little Miss Sunshine'. Very entertaining comedy with a pretty good message coming out of it. Worth a watch, IMO.
