M. Night... Love 'Em Or Hate 'Em???

Everybody is poo-pooing all over M. Night Shyamalan lately. His last few films have not captured the audiences the way his first few films had (I think The Happening is the worst movie ever... EVER!!!). I have yet to see The Last Airbender, but its getting smashed by critics (like 12% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes), and believe it or not, some of our C-C-D friends that watcht he cartoon show saw it and thinks it was wonderful! Anyway, our man M is kind of embracing the hate... kinda. First, check out this fake movie he made for MTV called "Escalation", which is supposed to make fun of the new film he wrote (but did not direct) Devil (it takes place in an elevator. Get it, elevator-escalator... meh)

So he seems to be having some fun with the bad reactions he has been getting. The new movie, Devil, featured his name prominetly in the original print ads and TV spots:

Notice the "From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan" along the top of the poster? Seems like the studio wanted to push our boy M's involvement in this sucker. But the subway posters have just hit NYC, and with the film about to be released, they changed the poster a bit:

Same graphics on the poster, no credit to M Dog anymore.... Hmmmmmm, thats interesting, no??? Apparently M might be ok with the negative attitude the public has torwards him, but I do not think the studio finds it so funny. They have chosen to excise M -Diggity's name from the poster. Will people forget he was involved in this movie and maybe give it a good review? We will find out in the next few weeks once the film comes out in September. Till then, we say fuck the M-man haters.... 6th Sense and Unbreakable buys him a pass here at CCD anyday!!!
