    A better title might be BAD. That looks terrible.

    It has an interesting premise. I stopped the trailer half way through so that it doesn't spoil the entire film for me.

    I think that's just the acting that's terrible. The premise does sound interesting, though rather depressing.

    Will be picking this up at Walmart Tuesday if they have it I'm guessing the DVD will be on sale for 17.96 and the bluray DVD combo will be either 19.96 or 22.96!

    When this movie started out, it felt a bit sloppy and all over the place. Around the halfway point, everything starts coming together and by the end I really dug it. It's pretty out there and weird. Basically a good Twilight Zone episode except feature-length. For a PG-13, it was definitely pushing that boundary.

    I'm kind of loving the return of Shyamalan. Can't wait for his next.

    I liked this a lot more than expected. I have to admit, this revived Shyamalan has been really nice. The ending wasn't exactly great as I felt they over explained too much and would have been better if they left the motivations more open to our imagination. But, everything going up to the last few scenes was really quite tense and engaging. I think my biggest criticism was that I liked it so much I thought I'd actually give Lady in the Water a chance.

    Heads up that the video has spoilers not only for Old but a lot of Shyamalan films.

    This guy's pretty funny though and I enjoy checking his content out. This particular video is a little more serious than usual. I haven't seen Old myself but I've heard and seen more than enough to know it looks garbage unless you're looking for a sort of comedy.
