Monday night I went to the local movie theatre to watch The Happening and Iron Man. I have not seen Iron Man and have heard amazing things about it. Iron Man was incredible. One of the best movies that I have seen in awhile. The story line worked. The acting was top notch. I was enthralled. Gwyneth Paltrow was great as Pepper. This is a must see movie and action packed. Watch the trailer.
The Happening was probably the worst movie that I have seen in years. I can not stress to you how much you should avoid this movie. Nothing about this movie works. I can’t understand why this didn’t go straight to DVD. The acting seemed forcibly poor, the dialogue was atrocious, and the story was very weak. The Happening is an environmental piece wrapped inside of a terd. Something is attacking the east coast and causing people to take their own lives. I had to force myself to finish the movie. I have been a big fan of M. Night’s films in the past and think that Signs is one of my favorite films, but there can be no excuse for The Happening. I think that M. Night has run out of material and needs to regroup until he has something worth our time.
