Cool Videos: No One Likes M. Night Shyamalan

09.09.2010

Somewhere after SIGNS, things started to go sour for filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan. He seems to have burned through whatever good karma he built with THE SIXTH SENSE and UNBREAKABLE, thanks to questionable quality control and a well-documented inability to grasp reality (which someone wrote an entire book about).

Sure he undoubtedly still has his fans, but judging by the reports of chuckles and boos from audiences when his name appears before the DEVIL trailer, they're just not as common as in his career prime.

Anyway, this is funny.

If you see a cool video online you think would be perfect for this spotlight, drop us a line at yourvideos@joblo.com.

Extra Tidbit: Reminds me of Principal Skinner: "Am I so out of touch? No... It's the children who are wrong."

I hate it when people bash something without even trying it. To me that is
the absolute LAMEST thing. I'm not gonna hate DEVIL just because M's name is attached. C'mon , what kinda immature high school shit is that?

People have the right to their opinion, but when it turns into lame ridicule, which grade-schoolers can easily participate in and then hating, I think is ridiculous. There is a fine line between hating and well structured criticism. Well, it is a hater's world after all. If one, especially one who is in the spot light like M. Night Shyamalan ( a celebrity) doesn't please people exactly as they want, then they may hate out of disappointment. I mean can any of them direct any movie. He did make

He did make unbreakable and sixth sense, which I thought and a lot of critics(fuck them) thought is really well.

"It feels like I'm losing my mind of M. Night Shyamalan" & "It's something to do with the 8's"

Classic. It's funny because I can really see him being in this much denial.

Funny

That was a very funny and well-made video. However, I am still a fan, and think lots (not everyone mind you) are simply not understanding his films and are just hating because they can.

sorry i'm not gonna jump on the hate bandwagon. i respect a lot of what shyamalan's done, and i think he's only gonna get better. f*** the haters. not even half of the criticism is warranted.

An amusing video. I think the general revolt against M.Night is warranted, he's made some damn quality pics, but pushes out nothing but turds these days. The tv trailers for Devil Ive seen dont even bother to mention his name, thats probably a smart thing right now.

Awesome

Loved the part with the little girl who liked Lady in the Water "Oh thank you...". What a terrific combination of satire over his style and dense outlook.

First off, I'm with Hohepa 110% on this one.

And secondly, if Mr. Davis had any journalistic merit, and had actually READ the damn book someone wrote about Mr. Shyamalan before referring to it in such a MISTAKEN light, he would appreciate the amounts of hard work and dedication the man puts into making his own art exactly what he wants it to be. Isn't that something all artists strive for? Movies that only cater to what others want are just hollow, empty. At least M. Night Shyamalan's

Not even remotely funny. I'm not sure what warrants all the unprovoked crticism thats been popping up on this site of late. When he's released a new film by all means review it (harshly if needs be) but this isn't journalism, its just having a pop for the sake of it. its been impossible to ascertain anything about 'Devil' because every article consists of about 10% info, 90% anti Shyamalan tirade.

shyamalan doesn't get enought credit. He always manages to get at least one element of a movie exactly right, and eventually all of those mastered elements will come together and pay off. So all the haters can suck it when that happens.

I think Devil looks great and hopefully he can redeem himself with the film. The extra tidbit is one of the best I have seen on this site.

Funny cause it's true

However like Joblo I haven't written him off, if Shyamalan gets his ego in check he might still make a decent movie again

This shiz is HIGH-LARIOUS! I hope to God that Shyamalan starts to finally SEE and APPRECIATE some of this negative feedback, since I still believe him to be an extremely talented filmmaker, just a little too ego-driven over the past few years...

That was funny and creepy albino man was actually scarier than anything in an actual M. Night Shyamaln movie. I can't wait for the day that M. Night stops making movies; I'll live healthier the rest of my life just so that guy can die before I do and I can experience the world where I never have to see "From the mind of M. Night Shyamaln" ever again.
