The Village

I feel gypped. Again, M. Night Shyamalan bases the premise of a movie on something he's not telling the audience. I didn't really like it in The Sixth Sense and I don't like it here. Unlike his earlier endeavor, this one doesn't even have any subtlety at all. Shyamalan likes to use color to indicate things in his movie. In Sixth Sense, red indicated supernatural. In The Village, red is the color of the creatures in the woods, and yellow is the color of safety. Except now Shyamalan comes right out and says it near the beginning of the movie.

The secret Shyamalan doesn't tell the audience bored me. No, I'm not going to give out the spoiler. All it does is open up the story to a lot of things that just don't make sense.

At least I only paid for a matinee. Oh wait, matinees are $7.50 now. I could have been ogling women at Greenlake or something.
