The Sixth Sense (1999)Bruce Willis gives lifeless performance. Otherwise, good.Side note: I think there's a general consensus that M. Night Shyamalan's first three movies are his best. I saw The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable back when they came out, and I remember thinking both were very good, but I don't think I've seen them again since those first watches. I've seen Signs 10-15 times, and always thought of it as my favorite Shyamalan, but wasn't sure whether that was just due to a familiarity factor. Watching The Sixth Sense again tonight, it's very good, but I still think Signs is my favorite. Now I'm due for an Unbreakable rewatch.
