02sign.jpg We went to see Signs last Friday afternoon. It's an excellent movie, though not worth the four stars Ebert gave it. M. Night Shyamalan is a remarkable director (he plays a key role in this movie), but it's getting to the point of once you've seen Sixth Sense or Unbreakable, you kinda know what to look for and it cuts way down on suspense and there's really not much of a surprise. If you've NEVER seen Sixth Sense or Unbreakable, this movie would be superb for you (as a viewer). I was a little disappointed because it didn't surprise me as much as the hype promised it would. Maybe Shyamalan needs to think about making a movie that isn't so much of a Shyamalan cliche. That's not to say it's a bad movie - it's a very good movie. Just not Oscar material. Or even Top-Ten material.
