I have no desire to see that movie, and know some people with dissociative disorder who found it deeply offensive, but I’m enjoying your quip right now! 😆

Give me “Midsomer Murders” anytime, with Detective Chief Inspector Tom Barnaby and a “village” with nothing but 500-year-old manor houses, haunted suits of armor, and paranoid heirs.

Is this what has become of Mr. Tumness? As for the previous comment by Katheryn, my wife and I also enjoy that character and that show, and we jokingly refer to “the ever-diminishing population of Midsomer.”

This sounds horrific, actually. However, it did inspire me to start praying for kidnapping victims who need God’s powerful intervention right now.
It’s a fairly well made thriller, actually. Well acted. Good on you for those prayers, though, Gwen–far more important!
Aw, Mr. Tomnus 😦 I actually watched the trailer the other night. I was all excited to see what James McAvoy was up to this time around…I was a bit disappointed, to say the least. I just can not watch these types of movies, not for any lack of interest but not wanting to expose my mind to more worries, etc. Looks like he did a really fantastic job acting the part…wonder how he felt about it while he was acting, it’s gotta make a guy think…maybe not 😀 is this a bad time to joke?
McAvoy is quite good in the film. It’s not Shyamalan’s best (that would be The Sixth Sense, of course), nor is it particularly profound, but it’s better than Shyamalan’s other films in recent years.
Well, Bruce Willis is in The Sixth Sense, of course, it’s the best! 🙂 😀 I actually did watch that one, many years ago.
I’m so sorry you found it necessary to make light of mental illness. Those of us who struggle with mental illness don’t need that kind of “help.”
I have not seen the movie, but plan to. I have seen McAvoy in several films and don’t necessarily identify him as one character because of it–i.e. Mr Tumnness–that wouldn’t be fair to the person he is. He is more than the roles he plays. I believe he has a strong range of ability for his roles and this particular director leans toward thrillers.
Sorry you were offended, Paula. My intention was to make fun of the movie, not mental illness.
