Unbreakable (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.2/10 X  
A man learns something extraordinary about himself after a devastating accident. (106 mins.)
“ A brilliant concept with excellent execution. I love the lore and acting in this movie. It's also beautiful to look at: pale and cold as opposed to over-saturated and vibrant. For my money, this M. Night's best, most deliberately envisioned and acted film. It has the tweests and turns that Shamalanalanalan is known for, but the film really doesn't need them. ” - chilogy
 
2.
The Sixth Sense (1999)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 8.1/10 X  
A boy who communicates with spirits that don't know they're dead seeks the help of a disheartened child psychologist. (107 mins.)
“ Atmospheric. Some solid performances and a solid script. The tweest was very effective and unexpected, but the film doesn't hold up as well for me on additional viewings. ” - chilogy
 
3.
Signs (2002)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A family living on a farm finds mysterious crop circles in their fields which suggests something more frightening to come. (106 mins.)
“ I hate the ending of this film. Water? Great. Sometimes I can forgive films for endings I don't enjoy, but I definitely hold it against this film, since I thought the first 2 acts were interesting and well directed. There's definitely enough good here to recommend. Some frightening scenes as well as enjoyably tender ones. ” - chilogy
 
4.
The Village (2004)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.5/10 X  
A series of events tests the beliefs of a small isolated countryside village. (108 mins.)
“ I'm a defender of this movie while still acknowledging a lot of the criticisms. Yeah, I guess the tweest is fairly obvious, yeah Adrien Brody hams it up, but there's some really beautiful imagery in this film. I also liked the 'monsters' and was genuinely creeped out by the lore (even if it was fabricated). Bottom line: it works for me. ” - chilogy
 
5.
The Happening (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.0/10 X  
A science teacher, his wife, and a young girl struggle to survive a plague that causes those infected to commit suicide. (91 mins.)
“ Stupid, but fun. The acting is atrocious, but that actually doesn't bother me, considering this a B-movie. The suicide scenes are actually fantastic and eerie. John Leguizamo bothered me, as he always does, but that's a personal gripe. I'll say it again: Stupid, but fun. ” - chilogy
 
6.
The Last Airbender (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.2/10 X  
Follows the adventures of Aang, a young successor to a long line of Avatars, who must master all four elements and stop the Fire Nation from enslaving the Water Tribes and the Earth Kingdom. (103 mins.)
“ Pretty uneventful. And by that, I mean tons of things happen and none of them matter in the least. I still had fun with lore (I've never seen the cartoon) and some of the visuals were nice. I understand how fans might be outraged, but I was just underwhelmed and bored, not offended. ” - chilogy
 
7.
Wide Awake (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A 10 year old boy goes on a search for God after his grandfather dies. (88 mins.)
“ Nauseatingly portentous tale of boy searching for God. Would be worse than Lady in the Water if not for a few interesting and likable supporting characters. The least interesting, visually, of all M. Night's films. ” - chilogy
 
8.
Lady in the Water (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
Apartment building superintendent Cleveland Heep rescues what he thinks is a young woman from the pool he maintains. When he discovers that she is actually a character from a bedtime story who is trying to make the journey back to her home, he works with his tenants to protect his new friend from the creatures that are determined to keep her in our world. (110 mins.)
“ One of the most self-indulgent films ever made. Some decent visuals, but nothing to write home about. The lore was uninteresting and muddled. The characters were loathsome (some were actually offensive). M. Night masturbating to his image in a mirror. ” - chilogy
