Why is it such a hilarious example? I understand he isn't Stanley Kubrick, but it was actually quite a good example as his movies almost always have some plot twist. Of course, at this point they can almost be predicted, which is exactly the opposite effect of what you would want from a plot twist.

So yes, has his career become laughable in relation to his inability to make any movie that isn't that different from The Sixth Sense - yes, most certainly. However, as an example of someone who has been successful creating movies that predominantly revolve around plot twists, it is actually a very good example.

Plus, the Sixth Sense was actually good the first time I watched it. :P

I say laughable because a better example would be someone who had continued success ;P Shyamalan is a laughing stock at this point, a "1 hit wonder" if you will with the Sixth Sense, which yes was a good film. Yes I know Signs was a success also, but I personally felt Unbreakable was a better film despite it not having anywhere near the success and Signs was grossly over rated.

You're post is fallacious. The red herring you give us of whether M. Night Shyamalan is a good director or not has nothing to do with the fact that this movies almost always have some plot twist at the end and illustrate the point that a plot twist is actually something that can be a desirable part of a story.

I was simply pointing out that plot twists aren't a bad thing as the previous poster suggested when he pointed out that the plot seemed fragmented simply to be given a final "aha!" moment at the end.

Of course, I suppose movies like Pulp Fiction also are bad simply because they have a fragmented story that doesn't follow a normal "beginning to end" type of plot line.

See, you can try and turn the argument away from what we are actually talking about by criticizing the example I used, but you still fail to actually post anything meaningful about the argument presented, which is fallacious.

Actually I was pointing out the hilarity of using such a laughable example as Shyamalan, might want to avoid reading to much into things. Rest of my post had nothing to do with that.

And that is a bad thing? M. Night Shyamalan has made quite a living making stories that do the exact same thing, to just mention one person.

Because M. Night Shyamalan is an example of a great director these days, right?

People need to take off the nostalgia glasses. GW1 has good lore and background, as does GW2.

Where it always fell flat until Nightfall was presentation. GW2 has the same problem, presentation has never been a strong point of the GW franchise, Nightfall (and maybe EoTN) is an exception and even then it had Kormir.

Once GW2 has been out a fair amount of years, then we can compare the stories of GW1 and GW2

I'm wondering the same thing, on my guardian I found my damage was still good even with full power/tough/vit gear so I THINK it might transfer over well to ele, but I can't say for sure.
