Whoa, best film? That's giving it a lot, maybe I need to rewatch it but imho I dunno about that. I got soured re Sixth Sense since somebody told me the ending before I saw it. I think it's either that or Unbreakable for me.

Other movies with great endings:
Bridge over the river Kwai (oh my God, what have I done)
Excalibur
The Road warrior
Star Wars episode four
Rocky
Are there any I am missing?
Greatest ending for me was " The usual suspects".

Yep, honestly. For me it goes Signs, The Villiage, Lady in the Water, Sixth Sense.......

Sixth Sense is a too one-time twist for me. It is kind of like watching Fate of the Furious after watching it once, Dom goes rogue, once you know why a re-watch is boring.

The Village is a bit one-time twist, but the whole facade of the village is much better than, "oh he's dead".

Reading that reddit, supposedly M Night mentioned that it wasn't about aliens so maybe most ppl just weren't pay attention at all until some fans brought it up. Supposedly 'Jeff, Who lives at home' refers to that movie as well. Anyway, now I gotta watch that and rewatch Signs

It was alright, but I'm still waiting for him to regain his old magic.


Jeff, Who lives at home is pretty good, if you like Jason Segel, who I'd describe as the anti-Marvel Comic Universe dude. So, for ppl who don't like explosions-laden movies every 5 seconds and want drama.

Some posters in the reddit thread said that.

Here's a direct quote from M.Night during an interview. He didn't come out and say it directly but does talk about what the movie really is about. The one thing - love him or hate him - about M.Night is his movies are NEVER just cut and dry. It's not just a ghost movie if it's not just an alien invasion movie. He's always going much deeper than that.

I sometimes enjoy his movies but find the majority of them are lacking, at least for me.
