Signs

People have many different ideas of what makes a good movie. The latest Mel Gibson movie, Signs, with the combination of good writing, use of characters, and foreshadowing, is the definition of a good movie.
M. Night Shyamalan, writer and director of Signs, did a very good job using primal fear. The scary parts in this movie were not horror-like scary. Shyamalan used a more subtle scary such as an alien standing on top of a barn with only the silhouette showing. He uses the fear that sends more chills up your spine rather than that kind that sends you jumping out of your seat. Also, he has a very good usage of comic relief. Merrill Hess (Joaquin Phoenix), Morgan Hess (Rory Culkin), and Bo Hess (Abigail Breslin) play a big part in the role of the comic relief and it always seems to come at the right time.
As we all know characters play a big role in movies. There is a wide range of character types in this movie, which is another key for a great movie. From Father Graham Hess (Mel Gibson), the serious character, to Merrill Hess, the laid back character who doesn't worry about too much and is a kid at heart, this movie covers them all.
Shyamalan uses the well-known art of foreshadowing very well in this movie. From the very beginning there are hints to clue you in to the ending of the movie. For example, the daughter, played by Abigail Breslin, leaves classes of water all over the house saying they are contaminated. This comes into play at the end of the movie when we find out that water is the only thing that can kill the aliens who are invading.
Foreshadowing, use of characters, and writing are the three things that make up a good movie. If you are looking for a movie like this, Signs, written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan, is an excellent choice. It will keep you sitting on the edge of your seat with suspense for the whole 120 minutes.
