don't ever watch this movie. it's not even worth explaining why, just don't.

I saw this movie in theaters. Your 1/10 score is generous. Bad acting + terrible CGI + historical inaccuracies = 1 Horrendous Movie

The Happening 3/10

I like Mark Wahlberg, but the premise of this movie was retarded.







SPOILER

















There is no twist at all, it stinks.

I watched Murder by Numbers last night for the first time, I know it's a few years old but I liked it. I'd give it a 6.5/10, not a classic, but worth watching. Interesting plot. ;-D

Historical inaccuracies? lol

If you're going to name a movie after a specific date in history shouldn't it be a historically accurate story?

Some of the more noticeable issues:
1) The building of pyramids thousands of years before their actual existence. The majority of the pyramids were built from 2500 to 1500 BC.
2) The use of horses in the film despite the fact that they were not domesticated until around 4000 BC.
3) The Chinese did not invent the crossbow until around 1500 BC.
4) The use of domesticated woolly mammoths to help construct the pyramids. :-?
5) Small scale agriculture did not reach Egypt until 7000 BC to 6000 BC.

There are probably more issues that I'm not aware of. If they had simply named the film 2000 BC many of these issues would have been avoided (except for the fact that woolly mammoths would have been extinct by then). Some people can overlook all of these problems...I'm not one of them, there were simply too many.

Finally got around to watching it. It was on G4 this afternoon. Very engrossing. The human story takes over and pretty quickly you're not even watching a video game documentary. Incredible how much dislike I had for Billy Mitchell by the end. :-D

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

The Happening: 6/10

I'm not going to spoil it for anyone, but its clearly not M. Night's best work. We have a growing body of evidence that despite the hot start (Sixth Sense), his future potential is fairly limited.

When Mitchell first started talking I couldn't believe he was actually serious. As it went on, the hypocrisy of the record, the video tape, etc. was just unbelievable.
