My Review: M. Night Shyamalan is one of my top ten directors mainly because I love the concepts in his films. I also like that tries to incorporate some kind of religious undertone. This film may have placed me with the other fans who have expressed their opinion as “losing faith in the director.” I going to be honest this film was not that great, but saying “it sucked” MIGHT be a little too harsh. The concept was great: “What is it like to see humanity at its basic primordial state,” very suspenseful right. Wrong, what we actually see on screen is just a family running from the wind and a bunch people killing them self’s, I might add in pretty brutal ways, hints the rating of R. I hate to say this but has M. Night Shyamalan lost his touch or is it just an awesomely bad run of luck. I know fan are about done with M. Night Shyamalan movies, I quote the guy behind me “I will not waste another dollar on his movies again.” I want to believe that there are others out there like me who like M. Night Shyamalan and have some faith in his work. Is this bad run of movies the end of the line? The Village, Lady in the Water, and The Happening some would say has gotten progressively worst and I half way agree. I liked The Village and Lady in the Water but both of there ending were bad. I have the same feelings for The Happening but worst. It also was slow and somewhat boring. The suicide scenes are so brutal all you can say is “Holy Shit,” which also can turns people off. It wasn’t all bad there at lease two good things that came out of this film and that are Mark Wahlberg, and John Leguizamo. Not one to pay for maybe rent but that maybe stretching it also. So if you are like me and are a fan of M. Night Shyamalan and still have some faith in his filmmaking then you MIGHT give it a shoot, when it come out to rent. Until next God bless and happy movie hunting.

My Review: This movie is just one more stepping stone to bringing the Avengers movies and the Marvel Universe into greatness, when comes to comic book movies. Edward Norton is amazing actor and he doesn’t let us fans down. I am going to say there were thing that brought it down a couple of notches. The biggest of which was the final battle, the battle itself was awesome but how it ended sucks. I do recommend and it is very entertaining it’s just it had potential and could have ended better. Listen to The Movie Blog Pod Cast for more in depth opinions at Most of what these three have to say is along the same feelings I have for the film. Until next time God bless and happy movie hunting.

Marvel Studios Plans


Iron Man: Intro to Nick Fury,“The Avenger Initiative,” and War Machine
The Incredible Hulk: Introduce to the Super Soldier Serum aka Captain America (there is a delete scene with Steve Rogers) , and Robert Downey Jr. makes cameo appearance as Tony Stark


X-Men Origins: Wolverine: Wolverine was an Avenger


Iron Man 2: Intro to War Machine and maybe Thor
Thor: Will mostly likely introduce other Avengers.
Spider-Man 4: Spider-Man was an Avenger


The First Avenger: Captain America: Introductions and Back Story
The Avengers: I say push back to 2012 so Marvel can fit in the Ant-Man movie.


Ant-Man: Founding Member so hopefully this movie comes out before The Avengers movie. This movie would have to include the other Founding Member who happens to be Ant-Man’s wife and that is Wasp.
Black Panther: Spin off
Hawkeye: Spin off
Nick Fury: Spin off
