    Yes, God, Yes

    ★★★★

    Alice (Natalia Dyer) is a naive teenager beginning to experience sexual thoughts and feelings; basically all the things her Catholic high school teacher Father Murphy warns her should be suppressed at all costs. God is watching she’s told and Hell awaits for girls who do sinful acts like rewinding the steamy car windows sex scene in Titanic three times in a row.

    Her confusion only increases when she discovers a vicious rumour going around that she 'tossed the salad' of…

    After a series of duds, M. Night Shyamalan’s reputation as a director was so dead in Hollywood you almost needed a Sixth Sense to see it. His film career stank the place up like a month-old corpse.

    The whiff started with Lady In the Water (2006) and then developed into a foul stench with The Happening (2008). His work-for-hire movies that followed, The Last Airbender (2010) and After Earth (2013), confirmed that his name had become so toxic that the…
