M. Night Shyamalan needs to be locked in a children's daycare centre for a week with about 100 kids. He just doesn't write kids well at all. Seriously, he needs to take some Developmental Psychology courses and spend some time observing and interacting with real children. Every child protagonist in the main cast of his stories is a creepy little sedate sociopath with severe flat affect and an all-powerful, supernatural sense of perception.

And he has Joaquin Phoenix saying, "CHILDREN! Get out of the way!" at the TV. In a panic, North Americans will NOT say "children"; they say "kids".

Yes, I agree that the water thing was stupid. Hello? Planet of mostly water. Ugly bags of mostly water.

I saw Sixth Sense, Unbreakable and Signs, in that order. Sixth Sense was neat in that it caught you off guard. Unbreakable wasn't as impressive, but it was still very interesting. Stuart Little doesn't count because it was an adaptation of E.B. White.

Signs was just all over the place.
