Yes, Shyamalan is totally fake. For his first 3 movies he stole the scripts, and his last 3 movies finally show his true colours. He's a crappy writer, director and producer.

Roland Joffé has a habit of ruining wonderful scripts.

I have no time for Tarantino these days. Yes Quentin, the 70s - we get it.

When it came to Grindhouse Planet Terror was the better movie by a country mile. I look forward to Machete.

Shyamalan... What a twist! :)

Talking of Shaymalan, you made me remember this rewrited script of 'The Happening' from :

People walk around in the PARK while two unimportant characters have INANE DIALOGUE.

BORING CHARACTER 1

That was weird. Suddenly all of the people in this park stopped dead in their tracks and started acting like brainless robots.

BORING CHARACTER 2

Large groups of people behaving as though they have no personality whatsoever? That can only mean…

BORING CHARACTER 1

Oh shit, we’re in an M. Night Shyamalan movie!

Yeah. I was even gonna add a picture I saw on the internet about an M. Night Shaymalan Choose-Your-Adventure book (fake, of course, but the horror!) which was simply hilarious. Unfortunately, I couldn't find it.

While there are, of course, lots of directors whose work doesn't much appeal to me, and there are other directors whose actual output falls short of their reputation, there are also a few who particularly annoy me for one reason or another. Among well-known directors, the following stand out:

Brian De Palma
Blake Edwards
Ang Lee (based, admittedly, only on 2 films)
Steven Spielberg
