M. Night Shyamalan Says Housing Developments Are 'Soulless'

Even though M. Night Shyamalan’s recent eco-themed film The Happening did not go over too well with critics or audiences, he still believes it was the right movie for today’s times; even going so far to say that it’s the “fictional” equivalent of Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth. “I do feel this is the fictional, science-fiction version of that documentary,” he says on the newly released DVD.

In my opinion, that’s a bit of a reach — we all know that Gore said ManBearPig would kill us, not plants — but the timing was important and made the director push forward to release the film. On the DVD commentary , he talks about a particular scene in which the main characters pass a billboard for a surburban development. It reads: “You Deserve This!” On sprawl, Shyamalan says “they take farmland and they take all these forests and they drop 90 identical homes on a hillside. It seems that we’re going into a soulless place. I have heavy thoughts about development in general.”

“How can we continue to think we are not a threat to the planet?” Shyamalan adds. “Any rational person can see that there will be nothing left if we continue to do what we are doing. We have to change and then admit, perhaps, that we don’t have carte blanche on this planet.”

No one wants to date vegans, meat is getting the mayo treatment, and Finland get’s the first taste of new vegan fast food AGAIN.

Please stop attempting to express love through animal exploitation

While I’m a huge sucker for the sweet stuff, I can’t escape the seasonal dread of seeing lovers carelessly link up gestures of romance with animal exploitation.
