5. Re: Shyamalan's new sci-fi flick Dec 11, 2012, 11:01 Rigs
 
I consider Signs to be one of my all-time favs, right up there with Poltergeist. I think the music and ambiance is what really does it, for me at least. Mel's character is a bit...odd, but I've seen worse. A guy loses his wife, blames God, loses his faith and then has to deal with an alien invasion alone with his kids and brother while thinking God has abandoned them. I can relate...kinda. M. certainly went for the 'implied' route when it came to scary, which is much more effective than outright showing the very thing you should be afraid of. I think it worked fine, I don't understand the absolute hate for it from some. It's got it's flaws, yes, but it's still pretty good. I look at it not as a blockbuster movie but maybe told as a kind of short-story...In that context, it works very well...
