I have been waiting patiently for Joshua to see the Village so that we can get on with discussing it. Joshua and I are both fond of Shyamalan's work, so we've been waiting for this with "baited breath," as Johnny Most would say it.
Please keep in mind that to appropriately discuss this film we will need to deal in spoilers. To discuss it any other way would be like trying to explain the makeup of the universe using only vocalizations of a lion (non Pedro) ... or a Chinese person (without subtitles).
In the meantime, I suggest that you go and watch the movie so that you can play along at home. Personally, I'm angling to go see it again this evening to confirm some suspicions.
Joshua, would you like to start, or shall I?
