M. Night Shyamalan has proven himself as a Hollywood God. He brought us stellar films like The Sixth Sense and Signs and blew our minds. He brought us The Village and solidified himself as my favorite director in the business.

Plot (Spoilers)
A thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach where they are relaxing for a few hours is somehow causing them to age rapidly, reducing their entire lives into a single day.

Then something happened and he released Lady In The Water. I couldn’t figure out if I fell asleep or was abducted by aliens who told me to hate that movie. I tried watching it again and still wasn’t impressed.

The Happening was somewhere in between. I liked it well enough but it wasn’t Signs-worthy. That’s the slot that Old falls into. There were four of us at the premiere last night: two of us loved it and two of us were on the fence. We all dissected it on the way home and couldn’t come to an agreement.

There are great aspects to it, but on the other hand, there were some balls that were dropped. I feel it’s worthy enough to see in the theater, especially in Dolby.

Let me know what you think. I’m really interested in others’ opinions. Perhaps some of ya’ll can shed some insights on me that I may have missed. Enjoy your weekend and shoot us a comment on where you stand.

Grade: C+

About The Peetimes: There are 2 Peetimes to choose from. I would say the 2nd time is the best time to go. The earlier Peetime is strictly for an emergency.

There are no extra scenes during, or after, the end credits of Old. (What we mean by Anything Extra.)
