    Don't Look Now is a great film and the ending was alluded to so it wasn't completely out of left field. Signs is just a piece of crap. That stupid "the solution was found somewhere in the Middle East" when referring to water was outright hysterical. It doesn't get much more stupid than that.

    As for Devil, I won't even give it a chance. Maybe I'm closed minded but I'd rather revisit Howling II... Your Sister Is a Werewolf.

    Blair Witch was derivitive? Derivitive of what? Crap maybe... but Blair Witch was innovative in its time. The Last Broadcast may have beat it to the market, but BWP went into production first. BWP was alot of things, bad & good... Derivative it was not.

    Cannibal Holocaust did the whole "found camera footage" thing long before that.

    Oh, God. I'm stuck in a time warp and it's 1999 again.

    Hey guys, have you heard of this great new movie called The Matrix? I'm gonna go see it while playing the new Limp Bizkit album, Significant Other, in the car!

    I am sure we all knew people who thought it was though. :lol:

    I had one woman (over 28!!!) who swore blind that she read death notices about the actors, police docos etc.

    Naturally i had to totally review her status as an employee. :eek:

    Nothing unique to Blair Witch. Several years back an Asian girlfriend of a friend of mine insisted that highly skilled martial artists could levitate, glow, and fly through the air just like in Shaw Brothers style wire-fu flicks. My friend knew she was nuts, but she was cute and could probably wire-fu in the bedroom so he put up with it.

    That probably came out of the Sundance screening where I seem to recall they pitched it to audiences as real. Urban legends die hard.

    I saw Blair Witch in Northern Ontario when it first released, and a girl I was with swore it was real because she saw a documentary on it. This doc was from the Sci-Fi Channel, we later determined. :lol: Great movie, though. I still dig it, too.

    Dude, have you seen Blair Witch? Here's hoping they never make a sequel--same with The Matrix!

    Blair Witch?? Ummmmmm so, okay...

    Here's some other tell tale "Signs" that prove the devil is around...

    1. You have a special "happening" and have to go #2 in a Wal-Mart like store and there aren't any toiley covers left...

    2. After you have had to carefully lay toilet paper over the toilet during the same episode as in the "Sign" above, and you do your business, you find that you used up all of the toilet paper except for maybe two pieces, and you try to make do but your finger pokes through while you're using it...

    3. You're an upcoming director in Hollywood, finally given your big break and asked to direct a big budget studio flick but it's the latest M. Night Shamyalan project...

    4. Your lead actress on same project above quits over the ludicrous twist ending, and the only one who is willing to come in to read for the lead is Betty Buckley, and she insists on doing it nude (even though the role doesn't call for it)...

    5. You're still in scenario from the above two....Betty Buckley insists on doing numerous takes, and coyly tells you she sees you "eyeing her lemon drink" each and every time while straddling a stool...

    6. You haven't been able to go to the movies in years, you get a final chance...The only movies playing are either starring Yakov Smirnoff, Sinbad, or Anne Murray (in her first starring role as "Joni"); there's a cartoon feature-- "Jem Vs. the Popples"; your other choice is a double feature of "The Happening" and "The Village"..


    There are probably more...

    I heard the Blair Witch piloted one of the planes that hit the Twin Towers.

    I just watched this last night and actually didn't think it was all that terrible. I thought it was entertaining for a Shyamalan movie compared to what else he has released as of late. I was kept intrigued throughout wondering who or what thr devil was, what was happening when the lights went out and there was a scene or two of some creepy imagery. I had super low expectations, so that's probably why I wasn't so turned off, and also was pleased it was only 75 minutes long - definitely didn't need to be any longer than that.
