I thought it was pretty good.

    People just got mad at the twist and forgot the rest of the movie. Signs was the same and that was kino.

    I've always loved it, performances were great, soundtrack was great. I never saw a trailer for it so I didnt have that expectation everyone else had for it so it suprised me.

      Same. Everyone did a great job, but I think William Hurt did the best. You felt his sorrow and warmth at the same time.

    it wouldve been more kino if it was revealed that there were modern cities destroyed, what was left of humanity moved to the woods and that the monsters were real.

    I didn't care for it. The monsters were pretty obviously people from the start and Brendan Gleesons character didn't seem to be dressed in old timey clothes, or was that supposed to be a hint that it was in the modern day? I just assumed from the start that it was something kind of cult or armish like community. There were some good performances though.

    If this was made by anyone but shamlam it would have been loved. If this was shamlams first movie it would have been loved. It got hate because everyone, literally everyone went in looking for a "twist" and it wasn't what they thought it would be which means it was an actual effective twist.
    I have no problem with the movie besides that theres no fricking way a plane never flew over the village which destroyed the entired premise.

      They really could have just explained it away to the non-elders as magic creatures that pass by. They would all accept it.

      They explained why the planes didn't fly over in the movie.

          I can't remember exactly but it was something like the elders paid off whoever they needed to to make sure planes didn't fly over the reserve. I think it might have even been under the cover of some greeny/animal/bird habitat/environment shit.

          The village is inside of a nature preserve that planes are prohibited from flying over.

    it was comfy but I was bothered by how materially wealthy the society was with an abundance of clothing, and liberal usage of candles and oil
    otherwise I liked it and if anything, for me, the twist was that it wasn't

    it was a pretty nuanced and open ended view

      You are right, most movies would just paint them as evil. I think it was inspired that they didn't fall for that. If anything, The community felt so together and connected that you feel like they may have even been in the right.

      When you expected a character to be treated with harshness, they were often shown kindness instead.

      The movie has actually been criticized for being too nonpartisan.

    Because of the corny twist that it didn’t need. It made you forget all the good stuff and just think of the stupid gimmick. Probably one of the most significant drop offs in quality in a movie of all time.

      Can you explain how you would've ended the film and what themes you think the film should be portraying?

        I’m not going to pretend I’m some great artistic mind. I don’t know what the right choice is. But I can recognize what a terrible one is. It made you roll your eyes and and say “oh right, because there *needs* to be a twist” because that’s what he was known for. Having a conventional ending/story might be unambitious or safe but so is slavishly sticking to your gimmick. It was a disappointment. That’s why people don’t like it

          If you think that the twist is only there as a gimmick, you didn't understand the movie.

              It doesn't matter if he initially came up with the twist just as a gimmick, because in the final film it is clearly more than that.

              Care to explain? The "what a tweest!" gimmick is Shalamandingong's only reason he has a career.

              The film is a commentary on the romanticization of the past and of small, insular communities. That could still be done without the twist, but it would be subtler, and clearly some audiences found it to be too subtle already.

            The sad part is that if the story was played straight and dumber, people probably would have liked it more.

    6th Sense is a good movie beyond and including the tweest
    Signs is a classic and has no tweest
    Unbreakable is beloved by many, again no tweest
    The Village has a tweest, but is it not a good tweest?
    irregardless, no need to make this a family business with his daughter and all that
