View Full Version : Signs
09-04-2002, 07:46 PM
I just got back from an advance preview screening of Mel Gibsons new movie, Signs. It was written, directed and produced by M. Night Shyamalan, of The 6th Sense and Unbreakable fame. Now, I haven't seen Unbreakable, but Signs beats the pants off The 6th Sense. I don't mind telling you, I was pretty scared throughout a lot of this movie! I just wanted to recommend it to you all, because it's really good. Not to give too much away, but it's like a really intelligent version of Independance Day, but more character driven. Really really good movie, released here in the UK on the 13th of September. Probably already out elsewhere, but if you haven't seen it - go!

Yes, Signs is an excellent movie. Plus, you get to see a preview of The Ring, which will probably be even better, so check it out!
Plus, it's really revived the tourist industry in some dodgy English county, thanks to hourdes of American tourists flocking in to see the crop circles. For some reason!
(Apparently this movie involves crop circles, or something, confusion-heads)

It is suspensful but that's all there is to it.The aliens can be killed by water and so they come to a planet 2/3rds filled with water and don't wear protective suits or any clothes at all?
At night they had their lights on in their spacecrafts and then in the day time they cloak?!?
Mel Gibson dosen't even bother buying a gun?=mek=

Mixed reviews already.

Mel Gibson is a homosexual!

Hellbeard, Godamit stop the spaming.
I thought Sighs was pretty good. You have to like the Director's types of films to realy like it(Unbreakable rocked)

God fights aliens, a little known fact.
somehow i dont think that was the message of the film.

All my friends hated it, "The worst movie ever" some said.
I dont have an opinion of my own.

Yes, according to the critics
"This is the only film I ever walked out on. Anyone who has seen this film is either a total idiot or enjoys gawping at Mel Gibson"
"Apalling, pure toilet humour."

It got a lot of good reviews too - http://movies.yahoo.com/shop?d=hv&id=1807733433&cf=critic&intl=us - plus, Ebert rules.

I guess it's one of those movies that everyone either hates or loves. And the people who hate it think everyone should hate it too, and the people who love it think everyone should love it too, so they get all pissed off at each other and start throwing hand grenades, and before you know it it's WORLD FRIGGIN WAR III.

I haven't actually seen any demonic hatred in this thread.
I haven't seen the movie either ;)

Signs wasn't a happy alien movie, thus making me not like it!
09-05-2002, 11:36 PM
Yes, personally I'm sticking with my Mars Attacks dvd. Now THERE'S a movie no one can agree on.
the worst movie ever, if u like seeing Mel cry, go see it, DAMMIT ITS A SCIENCES FICTIONS MOVIE, not a romentic, wiht lots of emotional crap...
worst movie, u jump like twice, thats it.....

I just came back from the movies after seeing Signs. It was pretty good actually, had its fair share of popcorn-spilling spooky moments. The film was surprisingly unassuming, not many running-around-the-house-screaming-in-skimpy-clothing scenes. That style actually added to the scare factor.
(Overall, I still prefer The Sixth Sense of Shyamalan's works.)

Damn 13th? When will you come? I want to see this film now just so I can contribute. I feel really left out :(
09-06-2002, 10:53 PM
My brother saw it and said it was frigin creepy. Anyone think differently?
09-07-2002, 05:28 PM
Lol, I was pretty pleased to see it a week early. I might go again on the 13th now. I think its great, because its pretty much like what would happen if aliens arrived on earth in real life. That bit in shyamalans characters house is creepy as hell. And the bit where gibbo see's the leg in the cornfield. Its really funny too, a few laugh out loud moments. I think its a great movie, maybe the best since fellowship of the ring, and if I knew how to do the 'spoiler' thing I'd elaborate.
