Anyone else see this? I dug it. It's about a beach that makes you old!  :)  Consistently thrilling and surprisingly emotional. Really beautiful, expressive camerawork. Best thing Night's done since Unbreakable. Not getting the general negativity towards it. And it's got our girl Vicky in it, too!

Maybe I didn't need the last ten minutes, but I'm not complaining.

I generally haven't had both feet on board the Shyamalanaissance train (I thought both The Visit and Split were pretty bad, honestly), but I've got a good feeling about this one.

This didn't do it for me at all. I'm surprised to see such poor performances from such good actors (pretty much across the board - VK included - in fact especially VK!).

It had its moments, and obviously everyone should see it and make up their own minds, but overall this was a big disappointment for me.

I'm always rooting for Shyamalan to do well, for some reason - maybe because he puts his money where his mouth is, invests in himself/his films, and takes big swings ("Swing away, Night!"). Hopefully enough people like this that we see a true return to form next.

Heard a theory about this movie's success it's getting a lot of word-of-mouth simply because it's fun to talk about.

(Case in point, the last 4 posts.)

Hey, my friend and I have been going to Malibu since the mid 90s--and we're both older now!  :shock:

I knew these two couldn't be trusted.  Bastards.
