Everybody out of the swimming pool!  There’s a Lady in the Water who keeps insisting M. Night Shyamalan is the most important and inspirational writer of the 21st Century… even after making this flop fairy tale!  Can schlubby building superintendent Paul Giamatti set sea nymph Bryce Dallas Howard straight, and keep this vanity project from going sideways? Or will Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob be forced to tear apart the Story like a pack of wild Scrunts?  Donate Today and find the hidden messages in this unofficial remake of Splash!  

The Village - Donation Bonus

M. Night Shyamalan built a wall between himself and some of his fan base when he set his encore to Signs in a 19th Century Village full of superstition and suppressed passion. Can podcasters Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob turn a blind eye to a controversial twist that makes a fool out of Adrien Brody? Or do you have to be Bryce Dallas Howard not to see “the Bad Color” popping up on their arrows, pointing audiences away from these monster-filled woods? Donate for Now Playing’s Gold Level series and be led by love through the pitfalls to the painful truth!

Signs - Donation Bonus

Unbreakable showed no Signs of derailing M. Night Shyamalan’s plans to reclaim summer box office glory with another story of spiritual crisis, suspense, and unseen supernatural forces. Was it coincidence or an act of God that brings Mel Gibson to the role of a troubled holy man turning the other cheek to mysterious crop circles in his field? And will Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie need tin foil hats to decipher the motivations of hydrophobic aliens showing up to the farm in time for batting practice? Things all make sense when you Donate for Gold Level!

Unbreakable - Donation Bonus

The bond between writer/director M. Night Shyamalan and superstar Bruce Willis was Unbreakable in 2000, as the Dynamic Duo quickly reunited for another tale of secret supernatural powers. Yet their brooding comic book movie didn’t come close to shattering Sixth Sense box office records, and a sequel sat in movie jail for nearly twenty years.  Before Sam "Mr. Glass" Jackson unleashes his next diabolical plot this January, join Stuart, Jakob, and Arnie for issue number two in our Gold Level M. Night Series. Donate Today!    

The Sixth Sense - Donation Bonus

Night is falling on Now Playing Podcast!  Dive headfirst into our Gold Level Series, and discover the twisted storytelling of M. Night Shyamalan - starting with his breakout hit The Sixth Sense. Prickly feelings on the back of the neck tell hosts Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob that things won’t get better than Bruce Willis helping fragile child medium Haley Joel Osment to see dead people in a positive light. But was this box office phenomena a brief flash of brilliance, or the second coming of Steven Spielberg? Find out how Night’s story ends when you Donate Today.
