This has alot of stuff. Like 'The Happening' movie reviews (I have not read any - only because I don't want the movie to be spoiled) & heaps of links to other interesting stuff like clips, articles of/from/about 'The Happening'. ENJOY!

This has an article and some interviews with Mark & the director - M. Night Shyamalam.

Hi there,

I just arrived home after seeing THE HAPPENING ... I'm not shaking as I didn't find it that scary altho I did look away from some scenes, but overall it wasn't too bad. I love Mark's work & I liked him doing sensitive, but, and this is a big but, the dialogue was dreadful & funny when it shouldn't have been. I disliked Zooey feeling she was miscast & there was no chemistry between them Crying or Very sad . There was good moments from Mark, really lovely ones, I think tho, with a good script, he would have been better. I think Night has to let someone else write his scripts.

Gloria

Sad

It's a shame about the chemistry because well that seems like the only big issue so far and the script. I haven't seen it yet but really want to.

When I first heard of Zooey doing this movie with Mark I was thinking Zooey isn't right for this part because I see her as a comedy actress more than serious/thriller film type but I will give her a chance. I still want to see it and judge it for myself. CAN'T WAIT!!
I'm still hyped, no matter what the critiques say - official or unofficial.

Sometimes movies can reflect on your mood. So if you go with a mood that doesn't quite sit well with the film; you tend to have a bad review on the movie because you didn't have that mood on. Also that sometimes people expect too much and then when they don't recieve anything that they were expecting to get, they again dislike the movie. Which is kind of like when someone is sitting there waiting for a part that really catches them instead of actually GETTING IN with the film, by really taking in every detail. And on some occasions watching a movie the second time - makes you realise it wasn't such a bad film.

I think:
You need a clear mind, a mood that isn't bad, be kind of excited too, pay attention, listen carefully, think, get engaged! (These are my rules for movies) Haha.

Sonja - Sounds like you got into it and enjoyed it - I want to see it and get into it too. Most people always say I get too INTO movies haha. So hopefully I'll have that feeling too. (I really think after these kind of films)

Thanks for sharing your critique on 'The Happening' Gloria.
PS: MAN, I WANT TO GO!!!!!!! Did you know it's rated 'MA+15' here in Australia not 'R'
