M. Knight Shyamalan Thinks He's Like Michael Jordan!

| Filed under: Film FlickersZportz


Oh, please!

M. Knight Shyamalan has been receiving quite a bit of heat considering his latest releases have flopped, but that's okay because he's just like Michael Jordan!

Wait, what?

He explains:

"Look, I loved Michael Jordan, right? He was my favorite basketball player. When I used to watch him at Madison Square Garden there would be 25,000 people booing every time that he touched the ball, screaming abuse at him. And it was because the entire stadium was there to see him be spectacular. They were like, 'I don't want you to disappoint me or hurt me.'

"I'm no Michael Jordan but maybe I get a little of that… Reviews of my movies often spend a lot of the time talking about me, not the movie!"


Whatever gets you through the day!

    Bless his heart. How on earth does he carry around that over-sized ego???

  2. 2

    This guy should retire.

    Well, in fairness to Shyamalan…


    ..you think you're human being.


    So…ya know…

    ""I'm no Michael Jordan""

    Geez Mario you're an idiot. Shyamalan is not comparing himself to Michael Jordan he's comparing the reaction Jordan received from Knick fans to the reactions he receives from film goers who complain about his skill as a director as opposed to his entire body of work. Nowhere does he say he's "just like" Jordan. Sheech get it right.

    He said he's "no Michael Jordan" you dumb fuck. how stupid are you that you can't even understand an analogy. it has the word anal in it.

  8. 8

    Do you even read what he says before you make up your headlines? You are a fucking douche fatass!

    There's truth to his analogy. His first movies were much heralded; I remember the vast press around Sixth Sense and Signs; but repeat performances and that level of interest are obviously difficult when you're not the new guy with the new approach anymore. I don't think he's meaning to equate his skills on a par with Jordan so much as try to offer up a communicative example.

    headline and quote aren't compatible
    FIX IT

    If you actually took a journalism clas, you would be failed and used as an example forever on what NOT to do…like do false headlines that do not match the article. Fail.

  12. 12

    Err…it's M Night Shyamalan. NIGHT.

  13. 13

    well I guess the only thing that gets you through the day, is comments like this eh. Getting UPset over someone else's success isn't gunnah do you any good. His flops by far, still rake in more than you do. :)

  14. 14

    He needs to learn some humility.

  15. 15

    Sure he's alot like Jordan. If Jordan was the master of making shitty movies after having one big hit. If jordan is the master of making a movie look interesting in a trailer only to have a person go see the movie and get pissed off with how LAME the "twist" actually is. Then yeah….he could be Jordans twin.

  16. 16

    he said that's he's NO MICHAEL JORDAN but his criticism is….gosh perez, i go on ur sight everyday, but seriously, get it right.

  17. 17

    Let him make bad movies. They need something to sell for $3.99 at Walgreens.

  18. 18

    You're an idiot Mario. It says it right in the quote, he's not saying he's Michael Jordan.

    Ummm, I could swear I read him say "Im no Michael Jordan, But I get a little of that",,Where in that sentence did he say he was like Michael Jordan?? If you are going to quote something Perez, do it right and print facts, not fiction…

    Airbender wasn't really a flop.
    Like "New Moon", the movie didn't really reach many more than those who are die hard fans of the Airbender stories.

  22. 22

    Hm. "I'm no Michael Jordan" = "M. "KNIGHT" Shyamalan thinks he's like Michael Jordan"
    Do you actually understand English?
    BTW it's Night. A quick google search would tell you that in about 1 second. But I guess that would take time away from more important things, like obsessing over Lindsay Lohan and colored bacon.

    Actually, Mr. Shyamalan…I had never seen a picture of you until just now. And I have no idea about who you are, I know you by your movies. Which since "The Village" have all SUCKED. Lady in the Water was miserable and it was the first movie that has ever made me leave after paying to see a movie in theaters. We have all known your name since The Sixth Sense, but I think I speak for most people when I say I know nothing about you. I Think your movies suck based on what I watched, not based on a review of you. And for your sake, never put yourself next to someone like Michael Jordan again. It only highlights your nothingness.

    This guy is a tool. He complains many reviewers comment on him instead of his movies. If your movie is terrible, of course the critics are going to stomp on the director. Quite often the scripts that are handed to a director are steaming piles. If that's the case, then it's the director who has a responsibility to call for a re-write. If you go ahead and shoot a bad script, it's on the director.
