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.

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

Hey, as a big fan of disaster flicks, he isn't overrated! Looking forward to 2012, regardless of how much reality I have to suspend to see it!

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.
