M. Night Shyamalan defends his movies to a reporter (with Video)

I am a fan of the Sham-Hammer, but I can see where the reporter is coming from. His last few movies have been critical disasters, but at the same time, they have made boat-loads of money. I don’t think Shyamalan was being rude. If you don’t have pride enough to think you're doing a good job at what you do, then he shouldn’t be doing it. I have no problem with a director defending his choices. The reporter was far more blunt than required, and when you ask a really blunt question like that, you're bound to get a really blunt answer in return.

What do you think? Does the Sham-hammer have a point? Was the reporter being a D-Bag? Let me know in the comments!

Every once in awhile, a video appears online that makes me smile. I’m not talking about skater landing on his junk and damaging his future offspring. No, this is way better than that. In this video, a reporter asks M. Night Shyamalan if he was making The Last Airbender to try to make up for his terrible movies. The Sham-hammer took a bit of offense, and the retort — starting with, “If I thought like you, I would kill myself” — was priceless.
