• The Sixth Sense (1999)

    If I ever had 8 hours to kill for myself, one of the things I always thought that I would consider doing would be to watch:

    Primal Fear
    Fight Club
    12 Monkeys
    The Sixth Sense

    …in that order. It’s an interesting sequence of acting jobs: Norton to Norton/Pitt to Pitt/Willis to Willis. And, all coming in great movies.

      You realize that Fincher of Benjamin Button also directed Fight Club? Very atmospheric director, who was also responsible for Alien 3 and Seven.

      12 Monkeys? The Ultimate Harlan Ellison/ time travel story based on the French short La Jetee’. It was brilliant how Gilliam incorporated La Jette’ into the plot of the 12 Monkeys. Nice job by Willis,Stowe, and Pitt (in the days where he played weirdos, psychos and serial killers) and of course, Christopher Plummer. Very underrated stuff.

      Sixth Sense is the cinematic child of both the Twilight Zone and Rod Serling’s Night Gallery(you remember that one for sure, right Steve?). That twist that is employed is pretty clever and definitely makes you want to see the movie again to see that the movie makes sense in that Willis is an earthbound spirit.

      Primal Fear…nice acting by Ed Norton. An actor who plays someone who is essentially acting as a male Sybil. Yet another film with a twist!

      Come to think of it , Steve all these films have a sort of Twilight Zoney or Night Gallery-type of ending,no? It’s cool because I loved those two series AND these movies.
