The Happening

Rated R


By Danish Shah (NY MAG) on 6/16/2008

  • Overall Rating: 3

M. Night Shyamalan has done it again. It's really not Happening for him. A movie based on some kind of a phenomenon that is so out of this world that it becomes more Yawn inducing than goose bumps. The movie starts abruptly and ends just like that also. Seemed like with the pointless gore scenes and suspense scenes, Shyamalan was trying to convince his audience that they're actually watching a horror/suspense/thriller movie. Come to think of it i would've rather watched Sex and the City than this.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
