Obvious troll, is obvious.


Do us a favor, and look up the word 'misogyny'. It does not mean what you think it means.

Mike: It's not the sentence that's shared but the fantasy of total surveillance, represented by Smith Sr. having the resources to remotely film whatever coverage of his son the plot requires. (When cameras fail him, Jaden's suit dutifully reports his accelerated heart-rate, so Dad can "see" he's lying.) The point is that a lavishly mounted project has a key concept in common with the low-rent joke script from "Extras." I don't see how it's a non-sequitur to say so if the idea is that Shyamalan talks big but thinks small, just like the "Extras" version of Patrick Stewart.


So the new M. Night Shyamalan movie and a fictional Patrick Stewart script from "Extras" happen to share an incredibly common sentence in two completely different contexts. Um... sick burn? Leave the non-sequiturs to Chaw.

Great review. I have no interest in seeing these vacant-brained corporate spectacles anymore, but thanks to the writers of Film Freak Central I can revel in my (schaden)Freudian urge to wallow in witty accounts of their spectacular, money-burning failures to communicate.
