Like wrapping a Kinder Egg in Filigreeā€¦

So I went to see The Village on Monday night. It’s no Sixth Sense. It looks good, and is (largely) well acted, but behind the pretty facade is something that’s utterly hollow. The story was, plainly put, bad – it’s a five page short story stretched out to two hours. Shyamalan’s now-famous (or should that be infamous) plot twists (all three) were so obvious that they oughtn’t be called plot twists at all. And the dialog often rides the border between terrible, and “David and Goliath” terrible. Net gain in media karma. I’m betting my next CD will be amazing, ‘cuz the next movie we’re going to accrue karma on is AvP.
