  1. 1

    He fucking ruined the cartoon and the movie sucked ass. Just because its 3-D, doesn't make it better… WHAT A TWIST!!!

  2. 2

    That was not defensive. What a bullshit question.

  3. 3

    It is blocked - so what did he say?

  4. 4

    This guy is such a d*ck. The Last Airbender was horrid and an utter waste of 3D Money and time. He's been on a decline for some time now. Everyone got the memo of his failures except him…

  5. 5

    did they spell his name wrong on his placement card???…..lol!!!

    98% of the movies that this guy has made are just terrible.

  7. 7

    There is nothing 'harsh' about his response. He is being truthful.

  8. 8

    Oh man…what a bad response to a clearly provocative question…yep..that was an embarrassing answer from M. Night. Very very very defensive.

  9. 9

    Nothing harsh about his response, he's just protecting his work and telling the reporter how stupid she is for asking such a dumb question.

  10. 10

    i don’t believe he was harsh at all. It was a statement based off a opinion instead of a fact. He answered her comely and very professionally. She is not reporter. She should research her work before opening her mouth. If it were you Perez @ a professional setting at a live conference, and someone reporter makes erroneous comments about your work and your character you make act defensive.

  11. 11

    The reporters 100% correct. He's just pissed because he knows he's the butt of jokes. But he's still getting paid to make crappy movies, he should be happy.

    And the best he could come up with is a suicide joke? Ugh. Loser.

  12. 12

    he should just admit most of his movies have been pretty crappy

  13. 13

    *Night not Knight. If your going to slate the guy at least spell his name right!

  14. 14

    I think he got it right at the start of his little rant… he should kill himself

  15. 15

    I don't blame him. He has a right to stick up for his work. Lady in water or not I love all his work. He's a genius. As long as people are talking about him whether bad or good then he's doing something right. He's interesting or else he couldn't keep making movies.

  16. 16

    but…his work HAS sucked lately. W/e what made this clip for me was Jackson Rathbone's akward supportive clapping! lmao

  17. 17

    I don't think he's being defensive. He's just setting the record straight. As for Shyamalan's work, I think the 6th Sense was a brilliant movie. Afterward, his movies just lost that pizazz and/or people expect him to recreate the same 'spectacular' with every movie he makes. You can't expect someone to be great all the time. The Last Airbender was visually stunning but the story was a bit weak, imo.

  18. 18

    Well I saw last airbender, I think they crammed to much into that movie,
    I want to know if anyone from the previous movie will be back for the sequel
    and if they will even make a part 2?. It didn't have good reviews and didn't
    open to good response in terms to box office $$$. I know they hyped this movie
    1 year prior and when I saw it and how it ended I was like hmm ok I hope part
    2 is better…provided they do have the budget and ok to make a part 2…

  19. 19

    While I must say it was sort of an awkward question, the reporter was spot on with her assessment of his career. One good movie and all the rest have been stinkers.

  20. 20

    How did he NOT get defensive? His opening statement was "You know, if I thought the way you did? I would KILL myself." That's about as defensive as you can get.

    His movies have sucked ever since signs… He needs to get it together.

    This woman was right on the money. His movies have progressively gotten worse and worse, and telling the woman that common sense was just something she heard? He's a terrible filmmaker, a sellout, and now you can add douchebag to the list.

  26. 26

    The only thing he was spot on about is that studios are paying him alot of money to keep making the movies. Otherwise, I think he's nuts.

  27. 27

    I think it was a fabulous response. It wasn't even a question, really. It was a statement cloaked in the form of a question intending to make the reporter look serious and ambitious. Instead, she just came across as unnecessarily hostile.

  28. 28

    I am glad someone asked him that! My kids were looking forward to that movie so much and it was a huge disappointment. They both said the movie was horrible and boring and the cartoon is WAY better. His movies are really sucking!

  29. 29

    he has thought a lot about that answer…he question was short…his answer obviously something that he has been waiting say…pretentious bore he is…

  30. 30

    He is sexy!!!! Yes, he was over sensitive but that's not a big deal. I enjoy most of his movies (last one really does suck). Did I mention he he is sexy??!!!!

  31. 31

    The reporter was 100% CORRECT. He RUINED The last airbender. There are a LOT of ethnic people that could have fit the main roles perfectly. He knew what the hell he was doing. And he had the nerve to say his daughter said about Katara "daddy she looks like me!" um does she fcuking look like her now? His only good movie was 6th sense hese finished.

  32. 32

    He gave an excellent response to what was an offensive and "crass" question/commentary. One of his points will be lost on many in the good ol' US of A (aka centrer of the universe): there are other markets that love movies that the American market did not respond too. He wouldn't still be making movies if reality was in any way like that reporter depicted.

    I loved Unbreakable.

  33. 33

    Teaching a class on The Happening here in the UK?
    The critics killed that film here and it flopped, it was a running joke

  34. 34

    M. Night…when the whole country with exceptiong of a few idiots thinks you movie sucks…then it sucks. there's nothing you can do or say or explain that doesn't make you sounds whiny and like you think your work is too smart for people to understand.

    it was supposed to be a CARTOON movie, if you have to explain everything you fucked up.

    someone fire his ass and try again.

  35. 35

    The question wasn't dumb as it was meant to evoke emotion from him. Regardless his movies suck and it wasn't all made up online. Go check rotten tomatoes and see what people really think of his movies.

  36. 36

    While I agree that the "question" the reporter posed was indeed intended to evoke an emotional response, I ABSOLUTELY agree with her summation of his pathetic career. While it is true that The Sixth Sense was a wonderful film, pretty much everything he has made since has sucked royal a$$, and has only aided in building his already over inflated ego. I for one am SICK of his movies, and The Happening virtually insured that I will never willingly endure another Shyamalan atrocity. It's just such a shame that he's "paid" for the rights for his sequels… ’cause I had ever so many unanswered, burning questions at the end of 95% of his films: 'How does this jack-off keep getting funding?', 'Why do decent actors keep accepting roles in his films?', 'Why didn't he get an Oscar nod for his role in Lady in the Water?', etc… You know what, he should actually make more movies with Mel Gibson, as they're both SUCH class acts. DONE!

    Re: semisweet65
    what are you talking about she's not a reporter? She asked a very ballsy question. He really does suck and his audience has lost faith in him.
    The man is done and over with.

  39. 39

    who is idiot next to him … btw .. she's right. … all his movies since the sixth sense have been EMBARRASSING!! Especially, methinks the village doth suck … funny that the village is his fave

  40. 40

    Im pretty sure he didnt really do much on the 6th sense, and that Bruce Willis, being a veteran pretty much took care of the film since he was such an amateur at the time (and to my opinion, still is)

    he needs to stop doing movies, take wtv money he has and perhaps disappear.

  41. 41

    Re: kizzy – your a fucken retard.

  42. 42

    Re: MONYHONY – Nope, you just can't see. Perez spelled it wrong.

  43. 43

    Re: Pervert Perez – He's being truthful, but he's also being delusional. His movies are horrible.

  44. 44

    He told her. I can't believe whoever she was…..was so rude to him. I think he put her in her place. I love his movies. Six sense, Lady in the water, Signs…the list goes on….

  45. 45

    Wow, talk about disillusioned. He hasn't made a good thing in years upon years.

    And The Last Airbender was horrible. Even if I wasn't a fan of the show, it still would have been the most horrible piece of garbage to ever have the displeasure of existing.

  46. 46

    Re: Starlit – I hope you make that statement without having seen The Last Airbender.

  47. 47

    Re: kizzy – Go watched the cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender, which is what the movie is based on. Then you will see how bad the movie was.

  48. 48

    i don't think he responded harsh at all.i mean honestly, what should be his answer on a question like that?obviously it was a provocative question and he answered just the way it was supposed to be answered.i'm not a fan of his work, but his reaction was ok.

  49. 49

    I don't know how I would respond to that either. What a jerk that 'reporter' is.

  50. Kylyn says – reply to this


    First: Didn't know he was gay/bi.

    Second: The Sixth Sense wasn't that great.

    Third: I think Shymalan/Shamlan/Shyamalanalan is a master of suspense, but needs some tweaking in the plot hole department with the numerous questions left unanswered.

    Forth: I detect that he is suicidal anyway, before this question was posed. Because: The Happening had masses of suicidal people. And: He is a writer. Writers are notorious for their depressive nature.

    Fifth: Considering the accomplishments of most on earth, he has accomplished a lot.

    Sixth: You know if he asked you to be in his next movie you would turn into a syccophant just like the eager actor sitting next to him, offering a personal tale to defend him.

    Seventh: I said this before, but the Sixth Sense really wasn't THAT great. Remember when Mischa Barton barfs under the bed? Gross.

  51. gooby says – reply to this


    that was an excellent, articulate question. what's interesting is how shyamalan get's to keep making dreadful film after dreadful film. i knew that the success of sixth sense would give him 'carte blanche' from a studio a few more films but he's had so many large critical and commerical duds in the wake of that film, that i'm amazed that he's still working. his connections must be LARGE as any other director/writer would have disappeared long ago. frankly, shyamalan's films have sucked for a long time!

  52. 52

    He ruined Avatar the cartoon. Why cast an indian to be zuko when the character is obviously East Asian (Chinese/Korean/Japanese). The whole character development was screwed up from the beginning. He also obviously wanted to go more commercial and messed up once more. His movies are too predictable and horribly directed.

  53. 53

    joking about killing yourself isn't funny at all. That response was horrible.

  54. 54

    what an arrogant asshole! ew! i actually used to like his movies and now i wouldn't watch them because of his sick nasty personality. can't take the criticism, asshole? grow the fuck up.
