Movie; The Village

Posted on

We watched M. Night Shyamalan movie, The Village, one night in Jan 06. And I don’t know what it says about us that we enjoyed it, but we did. I don’t bother too much about the critical reviews of movies, as usually I find that I don’t enjoy what they recommend and do enjoy what they don’t recommend. I am not sure what kind of review or ratings The Village received, but we liked it and would recommend it.

Why, because the ending surprised us, and that is one of the good things about not hearing too much about a movie before seeing it. There were few “clues” throughout the movie to lead us to guess at an ending, and so it was nice to be quite surprised when the ending came and we weren’t ahead of the movie. And yes, we talked about it afterwards.

The cast is made up of strong actors and actresses, most whom we follow. Joaquin Phoenix is among the actors that we know we will enjoy watching in any movie. Here is a list of the rest of the cast and you almost can’t help but have a favorite amongst them….enjoy the movie, The Village and I’d love to hear what you think:
