    Really good movie, but the version I have, at least, is dubbed into English, and very poorly done at that. They hired women and 17-year-old boys to portray 12-year-old boys, and the micing job was very unnatural, both in voice and in other sounds. I'm going to see if I can order the original with subtitles (which is what I just assumed this was...silly me).

    My second favourite film of all time. Astonishing film.

    This is one of the rare instances of a movie that is better than the book.

    Good film, but it surely didn't blow me away. It looked very cold though.

    It's a wonderful movie, though I think Shyamalan's best is still Unbreakable.

    +1, don't understand the hate for that movie, I loved it. But, I'm no comic fan either, and it's the comic fans who poo-pooed it

    Unbreakable is decent, but no more than that. Sixth Sense had great pathos - the kid's dilemma, his harried mother, the relationship between Bruce Willis and Olivia Williams.

    Hell, Olivia Williams' presence alone makes Sixth Sense the better movie, as Olivia Williams > Robin Penn Wright.

    I also liked Unbreakable very much. Still, I think Sixth Sense is better, but not by much.


    Hopefully, not all of them....
