    the mist was the 3rd best stephen king book turned movie imo after the shining and misery

    storm of a century was a good miniseries and firestarter was pretty good

    dreamcatcher, the langoliers, and the stand were pretty damn horrible though

    I had high hopes for the Happening after how bad Lady in the Water was.

    I guess M. Night Shameylan just sucks and I never realized it before.

    No-no.

    That is not the conclusion the movie ended on.

    In the end the conclusion was it remained a unexplainable event by nature.

    Remember when the news anchor said to the PHD at the end of the movie on TV that IF this is an unexplainable act by nature as you claim then it should be happening all over the world. Then the movie cut to it happening in Italy.

    The movie was trying to double back to the main point about the bees in the beginning of the flim that Somethings caused by nature are just unexplainable.

    It was really dumb.

    Yeah, but we don't know why the bees are dissapearing...we know that the trees are releasing toxins because the whole premise of the movie is the plants and trees talking to each other....remember where the events started??...At parks....and the last seen was a group of trees moving around from the wind...the only highlight of the movie was the 2 boys gettin blasted and the oldlady

    Like the bees the trees were left as an unexplainable event by nature. I thought it was exactly what you first stated, but after I heard the news anchor and phd argument inwhich the movie then cut to it happening in Italy. I put it all together M. Night was trying to be clever with a existentialist conclusion. But it ended up runining the feel of the movie.


    I agree.

    it would have been better if it hadn't been preachy... it was ok though... the "bad guy" is kind of gay, not really scary... lol, you'll know when you see it...

    The acting was very good though, impressed with Leguizamo...
