I can't argue with that logic.

This is the effect Shyamalan has on people. See, kids, say no to plot twists.

The best plot twist I can think of for this thread is that Sarcy turns out to be Shyamalan.  And he's been dead and super-powered all along!  ;)

You're proving my gripe about people who are too lazy to look stuff up while they're already on the internet.

Is India considered the Middle East anyway? I've always assumed "Middle East" pretty much meant Muslim countries and Israel.

Can we agree on this? M. Night Shyamalan is at great risk of becoming the next George Lucas, and not in a good way?

That's a stretch.  I've enjoyed all his movies so far, some more than others.  But I agree that I would like to see him spread his wings a little and direct someone elses material.  I think he has a great visual eye, and can build tension expertly.

That's exactly what I'm saying. Right now Night's in that Return Of The Jedi zone where he's in danger of being consumed by asskissers. He needs to come out of his cave full of yes-men and let someone with half a brain read his screenplay before production. Somebody who might say, "Gee Night, this sounds like a great flick, but the aliens are defeated by water? Are you sure that's the best you can do?" Or "Do you really want to call her a Narf? Isn't that what Pinky says?" Just like somebody needed to sit Lucas down and say, "George, man, people really don't want a Star Wars movie to focus on trade disputes and congressional politics. And I'm sure you can direct the hell out of this podrace, but nobody's gonna give a crap because the entire audience knows the kid's gonna win."
