I finally got my wish granted that is watching The Happening at the movie theater rather than waiting for it to come out on dvd which would be another 4-5 months. I could not wait that long. Sometimes I just dont have the patient. Only sometimes ok?
Anyway, last Saturday we decided to go watch it. We both are an early riser (which may surprise my x-colleagues since I was always late for work. ooppss!) so I took the opportunity to shower, wash my hair and get my hair done. After having my coffee of course. We were supposed to watch the 10.25am show but I was hardly half-way done with my hair so it was pushed forward to the 11am show. But by then he was too engrossed on the computer that we didnt leave the house until 11.10. In the end we went for the 11.30am show. Which was ok too. And! This time we didnt drive. We walked to the cinema. It doesnt matter that the cinema is only 10min walk (my walking), its walking nevertheless. With my red sundress (with smocking), white hand bag and white 3in sandal. ;) Sorry, Iv got to mention about my new red sundress that I bought. I love, love, love my new dress. hehehe.
Back to the movie review (which is the reason for this post). I have mixed feeling about this movie. I love M.N. Shyamalan but maybe I shouldnt have hoped too much. But then again, this is the guy behind the Sixth Sense! And unfortunately also the guy behind Lady in The Water! The Happening sounds like it has a good storyline. It gets scarier and scarier that one time I had to cover my eyes because I knew what was happening and I couldnt watch it. There were also a few scenes that was so unexpected that they just scared the shit out of me. Im not kidding. I thought his movies has always been child-friendly. This one is definitely not. At all! So please DO NOT watch this with your kids. Unfortunately the suspense ended too abruptly and all seems to be back to normal. Just like that. No explanation, no solution, no nothing. Until it happens again in France and then THE END.
Watching this movie is so frustrating. Its short, I tell you that. In all I think its no more than 90min. It feels like he was in a hurry to finish the movie that everything was cut short. Im not sure whats wrong with him but he seems to be losing his touch. It could have been a very good movie but somewhere, somehow, someone, just blew it. Big time. I wouldnt really recommend anybody to watch this movie at the theater unless they're a die-hard fan of M.N.Shyamalan. Like me. Wait for it to come out on dvd.
