M. Night Shyamalan stinks. His movies stink. The things he says stink. His chokers stink. Everything. We know that. But there has been a lot of BREAKING M. NIGHT SHYAMALAN STINKS NEWS lately. Between the release of The Last Airbender two weeks ago (stinks) and the recent debut of the trailer for the new movie he wrote, Devil (stinks), it has been hard to keep up with all of the new developments in the world of M. Night Shyamalan stinking. After the jump, a round-up of some of this week’s most recent new examples of the ways in which M. Night Shyamalan stinks and/or people express their feelings about M. Night Shyamalan, in which those feelings are that he stinks.
At a Mexico City press conference for The Last Airbender, a journalist asks him if he is trying to recapture the interest of audiences with a more commercial project after losing them with films that they hated, such as Lady in the Water, and “many of your more recent productions.” His answer stinks!
“That is something you read on Google.” No, M. Night Shyamalan. The general feeling that your movies stink and that you stink is based on having seen your movies and, as in this clip here, seeing you talk. Although Google is a really interesting magazine?
Also, the trailer for a movie that he wrote, Devil, was shown in front of Inception this weekend, and when the title screen “from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan” appeared on the screen people laughed. Because he stinks!
Oh, whoops. The video has been removed, even though there are dozens of copyright-infringing ripped copies of the Devil trailer floating around. It doesn’t matter. You don’t actually need to see shaky iPhone camera images of a movie trailer with the faint sound people laughing and groaning when they see M. Night Shyamalan’s name to get the point, which is that he stinks.
