Talented only as a director...not a writer.

Yes, talented as a director, but not a writer. Just like Spike Lee.

Shamalan is a better spelling. He's a Disneyfied Eli Roth.

I hate it when you all pile on M. Look, everyone here knows that you all think M. sucks and that Quinton is a hack and that Spielberg hasn't made a good film in 60 years...

Exactly. None of them are particularly standout "Oh my God that was the best movie since _____ [insert classic]." M. is ok, Quintin is ok if you're into that kind of thing, and Spielberg used to be good but now he's kind of going downhill himself. We need a new (good) Jurassic Park. That's what we need.

Sorry, I don't keep up with these things. What script did Disney not "understand"?

Lady In the Water. I saw it last night, actually. I thought it was easily understood but too complicated for it's own good. The same idea could have been done with 1/2 the characters. I can kind of see why the might not of wanted to make it though (the movie critic thing).
