    It seems that a lot of people are pretty divided on M Night Shaylaman's movies (even Sixth Sense), so I was wondering what everyone's favorite was.

    I even put The Village in there for good measure.
    I have to go with The Sixth Sense because it was the first and I had no idea what to expect from Shyamalan and he wowed me the first time I watched it; because of it I will always watch his flicks, however, Unbreakable is the film of his though that I watch over and over and over again.

    I really really don't understand why people think Unbreakable was good in any way.

    I was there opening night to see it, and in the opening scene when Sam Jackson is explaining the cover art to the potential buyer and makes the comment about how the villain's head is purposefully made larger I immediately thought "is that why he's got such fucked up hair in this movie?".

    Then I spent the next 2 hours praying that I hadn't just figured out the villain 2 minutes into the movie...but I had.

    I did like the scene with Bruce Willis and his kid when he was lifting weights, though. But the rest of the movie was really really bad. It could have at least been redeemed by showing us the confrontation between Bruce and Sam at the end, but instead we got the caption thing.

    Sixth Sense is best after one viewing, Unbreakable stands up best after repeated viewings.

    Unbreakable and Signs were both terrible. Villige was OK. Sixth Sense was very good.

    The Sixth Sense is a great movie.

    Unbreakable is a very good movie, even though I can understand why some people might find it kinda slow. I want more super-hero movies like this --- a realistic take. I mean come on! If I woke up tomorrow and found out that I could see through walls and lift cars over my head, my first instinct would not be to run out and don the nearest set of colorful spandex tights I could find.

    Signs is a rather silly movie, but fun if you don't take it too seriously.

    I haven't seen The Village. I figured out the "big surprise" just from watching the previews and thought it was dumb. Shyamalan needs to get over the idea that every one of his movies has to have a twist ending. He's been sucked into his own formula.

    And don't forget Stuart Little! Shyamalan didn't direct it, but he wrote it. It's a nice little kids movie.

    Signs was okay.
    The Sixth Sense was great.
    Unbreakable Sucked.
    The Village was underrated.

    I haven't seen the Village, but I dug the other three. I went with Signs mostly cause a lot of people hate it, and I thought it was on a par with his other films.

    (1) Unbreakable
    (2) The Sixth Sense
    (3) Signs
    (4) The Village

    I definitely feel that Unbreakable was the most realistic take on superheroes ever done. And it also managed to convey a strong message about courage and personal responsibility without being too preachy.

    The Sixth Sense was subtle and engaging. It was heavily dependent on the acting of Haley Joel Osment and Bruce Willis, and they pulled off perfect performances. The twist at the end came totally out of nowhere, and was nicely done.

    Shyamalan's other films were entertaining, but not quite as satisfying on the same level as Unbreakable and Sixth Sense.
