    Yesterday I saw "Lady in the Water," the new film by M. Night Shamalan.

    There is a party scene wherein a Divided by 13 amp is featured rather prominently.

    Anybody know if Night plays or what the deal is?

    BTW, the movie was terrible. Not even a rental.

    "Clerks 2"? :AOK Be warned...lotta potty humor.

    Just to give a second opinion here. I saw it last night also and LOVED it. Might be his strongest work yet. Can't wait to see it again on rental.
    And oh yes I saw the /13 too. It was in one very quick cut to a band in a apt.

    Saw it last night - I thought it was great! and yeah . . my eyes got real wide when I saw the %13 head atop a cabinet at the party.

    " I AIN'T GONNA WORK ON MAGGIE'S FARM NO MOOOOOOOOOOOORREEE!!!!"

    That was great!

    People seem to enjoy disliking him. Unbreakable was an interesting film and a very unique story. Signs was disappointment and I didn't see The Village. Even IMDB takes a swipe at him for where he was raised:

    "Born in India but raised in the posh suburban Penn Valley area of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, M. Night Shyamalan is the son of two doctors."

    I too saw "Lady in the Water".
    I too saw the ÷13 amp and thought, "I have to mention this on TGP."
    I too thought it was a very good movie.
    I too see a strange "like to dislike" thing about M. Night...but I like him.

    Just a quick question:

    I don't see anybody else's coming up as I type it, "÷13". Do you see it like that when I type it?...you should see it as it is done on the actual amps, a division symbol like you learn in grade school. I keep seeing "/13" or "%13". Just curious is all. If you don't know the "trick" to getting the "÷" sign on your computer, on my Mac it's simply "option" + "/", for you PC users you may try replacing "option" with "alt" and see if that works for you.

    Loved the movie...interesting attack on film critics actually....;)

    And I too laughed when I saw the dividedby13 amp. I actually thought to myself "I wonder how long it will take for some one to post on TGP that they saw it in the new M.Night movie?"

    People love to hate him. I've seen most his movies except Unbreakable and loved them all. An interesting twist of humanity in all of them. So far anyhow. :rolleyes:

    Most people I talked to didn't even understand the The Village. :horse

    Now I have to go see LITW for the amp. Can't wait to see how it turns out, the previews are always misleading.

    I think most people compare all his movies to the Sixth Sense, which everything else seems to fall short of. That's a heck of a movie to try to live up to. I have yet to see his newest movie, but I've seen and own all his others. I have nothing but faith in his as a writer and director.

    you know, i thought i saw his name under a music credit when i watched the village, but i don't see it on IMDB.

    also, no spoilers on the movie please. based on liking his prior films, i'm looking forward to seeing this ... comments and reviews be damned. :)

    I enjoyed Unbreakable, but I had friends at the time that hated it. I'd have to say that everything after his first 2 films left me disappointed.

    The entire point of the "big twist ending" is that it's unexpected. It's become his trademark, which IMO is not a good thing.

    Signs did not have a "twist ending", and from what I understand, neither does his newest movie. I agree, you don't want to give people the same thing every time.

    I think all of his movies are good, if not great compared to the other crap that comes out of Hollywood.

    I'm sure this would make a better movie:

    :D

    What I hate about Shyamalan's movies is that he often has a good idea, but simply cannot write a full length movie plot. Usually you end up with a lame ending and twists that make little sense. For example Signs had more plotholes than my guitars have frets.
