The Happening

The Happening ★★★

I remember hating this the first time I watched it. As well all know, most people out there absolutely despise this movie and I get it. But, I don't think they understand (as I didn't the first time) what M. Night Shamallamallama was going for: an homage to the B movie. I remember walking out the first time, thinking, "They had to be acting bad on purpose." And now I get it. They were over exaggerating. It's a shame that this film was so misunderstood because I believe it has led to Night's downfall in the eyes of the public.
