M. Night Shyamalan continues his increasingly rapid descent towards irrelevance with the silly, overblown The Happening. Note to director: long shots of people staring off-screen isn't intrinsically gripping. Despite being sort of absurd, The Visitor was an excellent and long overdue starring role for the always perfect Richard Jenkins. With respect to the earlier comments about M. Night, please include Adam Sandler as well. If you've never seen the brilliant, seminal Touch of Evil, today is an ideal buying opportunity.
