BLOG: I Feel Like I'm Losing My Mind Of M. Night Shyamalan

So the story goes that during a preview for M. Night Shyamalan's new movie "Devil," as soon as the familiar preview title "From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan" appeared on screen, the entire movie theatre let out a collective moan.  Evidently, many movie-goers are getting tired of M. Night Shyamalan and his climactic plot twists.

The funny guys at collegehumor.com seized the opportunity to create a viral video at M. Night Shyamalan's expense:

"Your career's been dead the whole time."

@ Mr. Dubois:   Being far less controversial this time around?   It's really kinda sad for Mr. MNS when one’s work becomes a parody of itself.   Even "Signs", which I for the most part liked, had a contrived and strangely truncated ending.   There are tons of great Sci-Fi and Horror stories that I read as a kid that I think might make for fun movies.   When are any of the Harry Turtledove novels going to be made into movies? In some ways they might be topical with the current level of political divisiveness in our country.    “Guns of The South” might be fun – unnerve the libs. The Rebs with AK-47s!   Hey! Where's Mr. Sanders? I miss his Marxist screeds.

6079 Smith W: You're right. There are a TON of good SF stories out there, some horror and some not, that would make awesome movies. My #1 pick: Robert Henlein's "The Moon is a Harsh Mistress." Now THAT'S a story for our times!

Can this even be considered a Night Shyamalan film?... it wasn't directed by him... only the idea for the story is credited to him.

@ SamAdams:   We're in agreement.      During the 60s, TMIAHM was considered the book for the right and “Stranger in a Strange Land” was considered the book for the left.   In Turtledove’s “The Second Great War” (which I have not read), Confederate forces invade Sandusky.   http://turtledove.wikia.com/wiki/Second_Great_War  

I’m currently reading “Atlas Shrugged.” I’ve heard rumors of a movie.

Winnie, prove to the rest of us that you are not totaly an idiot by removing that so called comparison of President Obama and Adolf Hitler. That is offensive and disgusting!

@ 44846GWP:   So do you prefer the previous icon I used with him as Josef Stalin?   You could be correct  - their political and economic outlooks are a better match in some respects.   However, there are some definite fascistic aspects to Mr. Obama's leadership style.   It is a quandary.   But in the final analysis: Socialism is socialism; some regimes are just more outwardly and obviously brutal than others.
