Review of “The Happening”

Posted on Dec 22, 2008 at 8:13 am

I really should just write "garbage" and let it go. But honestly, I loved M. Night’s films and the trailer for his latest looked great. I am feeling a bit betrayed, hence the post. "Sixth Sense" was one of my all-time favorites; I’ve watched it several times. "Unbreakable" was also excellent. "The Village" was.. meh, […]
