« Chipotle Stock More Than Doubles in Debut - Yahoo! News | Main | Uzz Giving It Up »

January 29, 2006



I liked the Sixth Sense and Unbreakable so much, that Signs pissed me off SO much ... I had better not go into it, but I feel that everything M. Night has done since Unbreakable has killed whatever cool he earned.


Strangely, I had a lukewarm response to Sixth Sense. It could have been all the hype, but I pretty much had the thing figured out early on.

Now Unbreakable was GREAT! The ending just left me stunned! Signs was so good to me in its simplicity and use of music and framing to create dread and fear was straight up Hitchcock in its approach.

A lot of people were disappointed with the Village, but I really liked it. One of my fave things about M. Night is how he uses trailers...they often say nothing about plot or narrative, but leave you wondering what it could be!

  • Original Soundtrack - Falling Slowly

    Falling Slowly
    Original Soundtrack: Once

    You may have seen Glen Hansard And Marketa Irglova play this song live during the Oscar' well as her beautiful speech. Maybe the most beautiful love song I have heard in the past 10 years.

  • Robert Plant & Alison Krauss - Killing The Blues

    Killing The Blues
    Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Raising Sand

    I have had this CD, but had not listened to it...until I heard this song used in a weird as it sounds, they have a great chemistry!

  • Sara Bareilles - Love Song

    Love Song
    Sara Bareilles: Little Voice

    Yet ANOTHER song I discovered through a commercial! Her voice is impressive and the vibe of the whole CD makes it worth taking a shot on.

  • Vampire Weekend - Oxford Comma

    Oxford Comma
    Vampire Weekend: Vampire Weekend

    The new critics darlings are definitely an acquired taste, but the lyrics are highly literate, the songs are smart and the arrangements are delightfully quirky! Vampire Weekend certainly deserves the hype!

  • Yael Naïm - New Soul

    New Soul
    Yael Naïm: Yael Naim

    Another song I discovered from a commercial! This is that jaunty little number you hear in the new MacBook Air can't help but smile:-)
