Right now it is commercial time on the ABC broadcast of Sixth Sense with Bruce Willis.
It was panned by critics when it was in movie houses, BUT it seems pretty good. Sort of spooky. But... on comercial TV... it moves so....slow....I....can't bear it. I have to do something else while it is on... like write in my journal.
More later.... maybe. The kid is sneaking upstairs now...oooooh.
LATER...Film about eighty percent over... still moving incredibly slow. Viewer not let in on any of the mystery... where is this going... who cares. I agree with critics....sort of a waste of time. Final critique in about twenty minutes.
TEN MINUTES TO GO: Right here at denoument...scene between kid and his mom. She is crying...but I am not getting enough of the dialog to understand. Kids are hard to understand for me at any time. Is it worth getting the DVD and playing it with captions? Might help...but could I sit through this long, long movie again? Don't think the simplistic ghost story is worth it. Will be watching for your comments....
IT'S OVER. The ending was as confusing as the narrative. Was the whole thing a dying vision of the hero? And how did the vision resolve anything.
Sorry, Bruce, I think I will stick with Mel Gibson for my dramas from now on. Cancel that order for the DVD.
POST SCRIPT..Sixth Sense as viewed the next morning.

Well, you're not supposed to figure out until the end that Bruce Willis is dead.
