the village

don't go see the village... unless, of course, you like wasting your money.

the idea is great, the concept incredible. i loved shyamalan’s movies (sixth sense, unbreakable, signs) because of the dual layers to them. the underlying story for the village is great, but the main overlaying story is just too predictable and far-fetched. i kept waiting for something to redeem the movie but nothing did. within the first minutes, i had it all figured out and spent the rest of the movie hoping i was at least partly wrong. their puritan way of taking seemed forced... and pray tell how a blind girl can run all over the terrain without tripping over anything. 'tis best to spend your money elsewhere. napoleon dynamite...yay!
