The movie going public needs a way to distinguish bad Hollywood movies from good, well-made films. The Sixth Sense had all the trappings of a bad movie: typical hype-filled previews, Bruce Willis, a precocious kid in the lead role, etc. Imagine my surprise that the movie was actually quite good. The story, the dialogue, the acting, and the cinematography were all solid, even great in parts. And no cheese to be found anywhere.
A favorite line from The Sixth Sense: “they don’t have meetings about rainbows”.
