    hard boiled is the only one I really liked.
    but I was in it for the surreal action scenes.
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    M. Night Shymalan, FTW! Seriously...he had The Sixth Sense which was good followed by Unbreakable, Signs (Made some bank but still sucked), The Village, Lady in the Water, and the Happening...all of which blew! I've heard that the studios are actually asking that his new movies quit being so "weird" in hopes that people might watch them or they aren't going to lend him anymore money.

    To make things worse, he has been accused of plagiarism for Signs and The Village!

    he's not overrated though. His reputation for making stupid movies lives right up to the movies he's made.

    The only director that would get me into the theater by name only is Ridley Scott, however, he did GI Jane and Robin Hood so no one is perfect.
    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    to that.
    I think they threw his name on Hostel to justify such a horrible, distasteful flick.

    I like his directing style, but not his writing. I'm really looking forward to The Last Airbender trilogy.
    yeah he's very similar to M. Night in terms of suckiness but Pulp Fiction was great and Inglorious Bastards was pretty good too.
