I have not yet seen the new movie by M. Night Shyamalan called The Village. However, a couple friends of mine went to see it on Friday night and when they got back, the following conversation went like this:
Me: So, how was the movie?
Friend 1: It was OK, but not great.
Me: Does it have one of those “surprise” endings like in Sixth Sense and Unbreakable?
Friend 2: Yeah, the ending is kind of lame.
Me: My guess is that the whole thing is nothing but a lot of actors and it’s just a big sound stage, and the audience is not clued in.
Friend 1 looks at Friend 2 and says, “Well, he’s not exactly correct but he’s close.”
Now I guess I have to go see the damn movie to see if I’m right. Roger Ebert, however, says it’s a pile of festering crap.
