->M. Night really isn't even a director anymore -- he's a '''legend'''. How do you start ''[[Film/TheSixthSense so high]]'' and get ''[[Film/TheHappening so low]]''? And I'm not talking about, like, ''Film/HighTension'' to ''Film/{{Mirrors}}'', I'm talking about, like, people lining up to see the movie because your name's on it... to nobody seeing the movie because your name's on it.
-->--[[WebVideo/YourMovieSucksDOTorg Adam Johnston]], [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NmbPdWZEFr8 M. Night Shayalan SUCKS (Part 1 of 4)]].

->So much has already been said about the downward spiral of horror/thriller director M. Night Shyamalan's career and his overused "twist ending" gimmick that it's easy to forget that he also tried to make the phrase '[[{{Film/Devil}} jelly side down]]' sound [[FauxHorrific ominous and scary.]] Never forget. Never. Forget.

->'''Mike:''' Him and M. Night Shyamalan, how do they keep making movies? ''(rethinks it)'' I'll tell you, it involves a profit margin.\\
'''Jay:''' Well, the difference is that Creator/RolandEmmerich movies always make money. M. Night Shyamalan's movies keep ''failing'', but [[PointyHairedBoss he keeps getting work]]. Maybe he gives really good blowjobs.\\
''(long, awkward pause)''\\
'''Mike:''' ''[[IncrediblyLamePun The Suck Sense]]''?
-->--'''''[[WebVideo/HalfInTheBag Half in the Bag]]''''' on ''[[{{Film/Godzilla1998}} Godzilla]]'' (1998)

->Thereís a huge clue in the book ''The Man who Heard Voices'', which is devoted to the production of ''Film/LadyInTheWater''. Itís clear that the author is wildly in love with Night, and makes no attempt to hide it. The way he plays with his buttons at the dinner table, the ease of those three-pointers he sinks at weekly basketball games with his buddies, and even his unusually long earlobes; the author [[ProfessionalButtKisser canít shut up about how bathed in ethereal light M. Night is]], even when heís squatting down and birthing some plops.

->The movie itself is pretty much an [[ScienceIsBad anti-science screed]] based on Shyamalanís failure to grasp science, reason and rational thought...[[QuantumMechanicsCanDoAnything Choprawoo]] combined with Intelligent Design is not a great combo, and after ''{{Film/Unbreakable}}'' (at least) Shyamalan has been unable to [[AuthorTract keep his crazy delusions]] out of his movies.

->So, I think it's safe to say that I'm pretty much known as 'The Twistmaster.' And at this point in any, uh, [[Creator/SpikeLee 'M.

Now, I know that Jaden's character has spent the whole movie [[FailureHero running away from his enemies, making a series of bad decisions, and just crying.]] But...that's what a twist is! It subverts your expectations! You all just assumed that Jaden was gonna die at the hands of this creature, 'cause that's what ''should have'' happened.
