At the movies: Lady in the Water

At the movies: Lady in the Water

We saw a matinee of “Lady in the Water” today, M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie.

I know that reviews have mixed, but we both enjoyed it. It wasn’t his best movie, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as some have made it out to be. The worst part of the whole thing? The fact that the boom mike was visible in nearly every shot! That’s just sloppy filmmaking. And it says something about the attitude toward this movie.

(More thoughts with spoilers after the jump…)

  • I’d never heard that, but even so I saw the microphone come down pretty far into the shot a few times. If the projectionist had cropped the screen that much, it would have been a very constrained picture.
