I have been waiting MONTHS for this movie to come out. I've been a Shyamalan fan since Unbreakable (sure, I loved Sixth Sense, but didn't realize they were written/directed by the same guy for a while). Shyamalan is absolutely brilliant in the way he writes, and the direction has been exquisite. He was on Stern this morning, and really seems like a cool guy. He didn't seem "to good" or egotistical, even though he's been so highly successful.
I even convinced my wife to come with me, because she hasn't stopped hearing about the movie since I first saw the trailer (which was sometime like last December or January). She, usually, won't go to see a movie even if it SEEMS like it'll be scary, but she'll stick with me, and even leave Joey with the inlaws (btw - off topic, but Joey's now sleeping in his room instead of the cradle in our room). I'll be seeing it Saturday afternoon, and will tell everyone my review on Monday.
