July 2, 2010 will probably go down in history like any other day of the year, it came and went. Nothing particularly special happened. However, if you look at it from another angle, my angle, it's a sad day in the movie world.
M. Night Shyamalan has failed once again to capture the hearts and minds of viewers around the world. Ever since The Happening back in 2008 I have come to realize that M. Night's star is burning out fast. The guy seems to be in a rut, and I believe it's because he's gone the "Hollywood Route" with his films i.e. he's making classic Hollywood mistakes. These include: Hopping on the Global Warming bandwagon and making a movie based off of something else.
About 80 percent (not an actual percentage just blind observation) of films that come out these days are either remakes, reboots, adaptations, or Twilight (it needed it's own place that's how bad it is). This is a problem, but the thing is that if done right remakes, reboots, or adaptations (no Twilight) can be really good. Hell John Carpenter's The Thing was a remake, and that's one hell of a good movie! Yet these days it's just a way to a quick profit. Sadly, this has resulted in Shyamalan losing any remaining credibility he had left after the Happening. July 2, 2010 is the day M. Night Shyamalan's career got ever closer to circling the drain.
And who the hell is this kid they've cast in the new Spider-Man reboot??? I honestly hoped Anton Yelchin would get the role, the guy knows how to act! He and Sam Worthington were the best thing to come out of Terminator Salvation (aside from the hilarious Bale-out behind the scenes) Does any one else think Christian Bale is nothing but a big joke now-a-days? I mean everyone knows him for the flip-out and the Batman voice, that's not a good thing. (Please don't trash my lights Mr. Bale!)
