Oh boy. Just got back from seeing M. Night's The Happening and gotta say it was quite a disappointment. It started off creepy enough with one of the coolest opening sequences I've seen in a while, but beyond that the rest of the flick is basically one long, dull travel sequence with the central characters attempting to find someplace safe while trying to figure out what's going on. It doesn't take them long (longer than the viewers tho; some of us had it figured out within the first five minutes of the flick) to discover the source of the insanity going on around them but by then the movie has already sunk into a morass of fear-mongering and eco-preaching. Just not what I was in the mood for this evening. Ah well, at least I gots to spend some quality time with Miss Mary and E-Rock.
Just picked up The Signal on Blu-Ray...think I'll pop that into the player and see if it can wash this bland taste out of my brain.
