Lady In The Water

2006

M. Night Shyamalan
Director

M. Night Shyamalan's watery E.T. redux will disappoint those expecting one of those twisty little thrillers the fellow has been churning out, but he couldn't keep making those forever, could he? ~ The Sloth

The opening prologue sends shivers down my spine every time I hear it; what an introduction to a movie. Unfairly criticized by the critics for not being The Sixth Sense, this film has a lot to offer, including a star performance from Giamatti and another interesting screenplay from the modern-day master director MNS. See it first before judging it.
Oh, and one last thing: there are plenty of remarks floating around on the internet about the supposed poor quality transfer on the Blu-Ray edition....those rumours are all true I'm afraid. ~ Lord Heath

The most bizarre fact I came across when researching the background to this movie was that the film itsself was classified as PG. The reason the DVD release received a 12 rating in the UK was because of the theatrical trailer, which was included as an extra.
