The Recasting Couch Ep. 50: The Sixth Sense


Sixth Sense

*Please note that we spoil pretty much every M. Night Shyamalan film* Oh, boy. We’ve got a deep, dark brooding movie this week in The Sixth Sense. This was M. Night Shyamalan’s first feature film, and damn did he hit a home run on the first pitch. Haley Joel Osment absolutely carries this movie, and for as good of a job as Night does, if they couldn’t find a child as good as him, then this movie would have been doomed from the start. Outside of Toni Collette, he acts everyone else off the screen, and it earned him an academy award nomination for Best Supporting Actor.

On the pod, we pretty much fellate this movie every chance we get, and we refuse to apologize for it. The movie is amazing, Night catches way more shit than he deserves, and crafts about as perfect a film as you can make (unless you ask the opinion of Rotten Tomatoes critics, which you probably shouldn’t).

As always, thanks for listening everyone! Rate, review, and subscribe on iTunes to help us become visible to more people and spread the pod. Email us your picks or suggestions for movies to recast at recastingpod@gmail.com, find us on twitter to tell Mike how wrong he is about pretty much everything @recastingpod and if there’s anyone who is still on facebook, look us up at facebook.com/therecastingcouch.
