What’s Happening?

What’s Jack up to? He’s being such a finicky eater lately. I’ve come to find out that during his big city weekend he developed a taste for crunchy Cheetos which my 2 1/2 year old niece, M fed him one by one and he happily lapped up. Now his dry Eukanuba just ain’t doing it. Jack has to learn I’m no short order cook. You eat what I give you or you lose out. Cheetos are not good for you Jack.

Yesterday afternoon I went with the DH to see The Happening. Leave it to M. Night Shyamalan to freak me out thoroughly. I left the theater feeling all off and woozy and disturbed which I’m sure is just what he was going for. Now I’m just a mess. Smart huh?
I’ve been a huge fan of M. Night since The Sixth Sense and loved The Village, Signs and even liked The Lady In The Water. Now I know The Happening has been panned by just about every critic out there but I thought it was pretty good. Totally effective at giving me the creeps and making me think. The funny thing is I agree with Richard Roeper on this one. He’s about one of the only reviewers that didn’t pan the movie. I do think M. Night was giving that Twilight Zone and The Birds vibe. You can check out his review here.

I say see for yourself. Give it a try if you dare.
