This movie should have never happened...

Pete Peterson has a review of M. Night Shyamalan's newest film The Happening over at the Rabbit Room. He analyzes Night's other films and asks "What has happened to Shyamalan?" Good question. Like Pete, I saw this movie on opening night and was absolutely appalled. It was so bad that I have been contacting people for the sole reason of warning them not to go see this movie. I am with Pete on pretty much every point (except that Signs is my favorite MNS film) and he writes it so much better than I would have.

I should have listened to the Filmspotting guys.

If you'd like to see in detail how bad this movie was, The New Republic has a spoiler (and I use that word loosely, because it insinuates that there was something good to be spoiled) laden review that was way more fun than the movie. See the review here.

Fleet Foxes- Stream the new album for free

You can stream the new full length Fleet Foxes album over at their Myspace page. Jump for joy, buy this album, and enjoy the best album of the year (so far, but I'm thinking it's going to be right up there at the end of the year).

On a related note, I just found out that Fleet Foxes is going to be the opening band at the Wilco show I already bought tickets for. Yeah...I'm pretty excited.
