Hey, Laaady!

Please listen!

I love to critique movies but at least i get my facts right and am not a soulless unimaginative jerk. So I have a few complaints about your complaints.

1. Cleveland does mean "land of high cliffs". Go on to the first baby names website that pops up on your search engine and type in the name.

2. Give M. Night a break. He tends to be a hit or miss type of guy but he doesn't see himself as a prophet. In fact in the movie the one who is referred to as the prophet ( By the character of Anna Ran) is the interpreter (actually the dad of the interpreter) not M Night's character

3. Tartutics are basically supposed to keep order so how would the scrunts even be able to attack Blue World. The possibility of the tartutics getting angry and killing all scrunts would be 100%. I just thought the movie made that pretty clear.

I do agree it lacked explanation for the order of the mythical creatures but that maked it more like a fairy tale with mystery. But what in life does make perfect sense?

the human condition

It is a sad comment on today's society that someone cannot even enjoy a straight forward fairy tale anymore without tearing it apart and wondering if the director has lost it. This was to me a wonderful uplifting story of faith and hope. I in no way saw it as real life or wondered if it would happen to me. It seems to me that Spielberg did do something along this line with ET... oops I forgot, aliens ARE real! If you want to analyze it why don't you focus on the man who realized he could not hide himself from life. There have been hundreds of myths written throughout history that people listen to without trashing them even though they can be pretty ridiculous. Watch the story, enjoy the moment and quit trying to find the answer to the great mystery of the universe in everything you see.

Lady in the Water was OK. Not completely sucky but there are so many places that story- and Story, where did they come UP with that?- could have been better. The snarf or whatever it was, it's animation sucked. Seriously. It looked like a giant puppet in most scenes. Plus Story's character was boring. The commercials made it look like a horror movie, which is why I saw it. What a rip off.

I thought Lady in the Water rocked.

I don't get the cynical attitude. What's your deal? All this dude's films, Sixth Sense, Signs, Lady. It's all good stuff. It gives us a reason to believe in SOMETHING, and for me that something happens to be Jesus.

Having said all that I have a question for "tom". Why put a spoiler alert on remarks about the end of Signs?

That movie came out like five years ago. Hello!!! If you never saw the movie you probably never will. Everyone I know saw it. We all liked it, and we talked it to death long ago. The end of the movie is great. Faith overcomes all adversity. That's no surprise. That's reality. Some people might find that preachy, but that's a message I bet they're missing. Praise God.

I've seen "Signs" so this doesn't affect me, but shouldn't you put in a "spoiler alert" for those who haven't seen it and might like to since you basically gave the whole movie away?

And if the chick from the pool crosses Sandra Oh's character, SMACK! Bike helmet across the nose.

I'd worry more about what Thomas Haden Church's character would do with a mute narf.

Sharp review--and hilarious.

I wonder what Paul Giamatti's character in "Sideways" would have done if a water nymph showed up in his pool. You remember him, the guy who reads "Barely Legal"...

"Signs" should have taught us all a good lesson: Avoid movies in which Mel Gibson plays a man of faith.
