This is a great 2 pack if you like Night and Phoenix. It's got all the extras on the DVD too. It's a good value for the money, and compact, I have one case instead of two. I just wish they were both widescreen.

2-Movie Collection DVD: Signs/The Village

SIGNS: I love M. Night Shyamalan movies for the simple reason that he always leads the viewer on an adventure and you never know which way he will take you. I've seen Signs about seven times and never get tired of it, so I had to buy the DVD. It's a mystery; suspenseful; a thriller, and funny in parts, thanks to Joaquin Phoenix who plays Mel Gibson's younger brother. Mel Gibson is a reverend who has lost his faith due to the death of his wife. When mysterious crop circles show up in his corn field, his disbelief soon turns into fear for his family. I get goose bumps every time I watch this. M. Night Shyamalan makes an appearance as the local vet. Don't want to spoil anything, so I won't say anymore except buy this DVD!

THE VILLAGE: This is another M. Night Shyamalan movie that I've seen several times. A tight knit community lives in fear of what's in the forest just outside of their village. It's so evil that no one will venture into the woods and the villagers post sentries in towers at night to make sure all is safe. The elders are very secretive about what this evil thing is. Joaquin Phoenix and Bryce Dallas Howard (Ron Howard's daughter) play a young couple in love. Bryce's character is blind. When Joaquin's character is injured, she must save him by venturing into the woods and going to the nearest town for medical supplies. She alone has the courage to face what's in the forest. A spine tingler and surprise ending of a movie! William Hurt, Sigourney Weaver, Brendan Gleeson and Adrian Brody are also in it.

I like M. Night's movies. I know some people don't, but I do. I didn't have a copy of either movie, so I looked for a cheap way to get them.
This is really the way to go. Buy them used if it doesn't matter to you and you get two movies while only having to pay shipping for one.
I would recommend this for people who use DVD binders/boxes since you only have one case to ditch when you've transferred them instead of two. 50% less plastic usage.
I wish they made more DVD sets like this.

Great movie set. Signs and The Village are both great movies. I love Mel Gibson and Joaquin Phoenix so when I saw both of these together for such a low price ($4.99 when I bought it) I couldn't say, no. The package came on time with no damage. Both movies play great....no skipping or stopping. Defining would recommend!!

Neither of these are Shyamalan's absolute best work IMO, but they're pretty good, and it's a well-balanced set. Didn't check the extras, if any, but they're the basic theatrical releases on DVD. I'd recommend it for any of his fans, or fans of The Sixth Sense, who don't have these movies already. Good price, too!

"Signs" is an excellent movie. If you feel that anything can happen in this world, could be a believable story. Good acting with subtle comedy. "The Village" is alright but definitely not as good as "Signs". The movie has a twist in the end.

I have been a fan of M. Night Shyamalan since I first saw The Sixth Sense. Each of his movies communicates messages on a deep, philosophical level. And if you don't want to get that deep, they are absolutely suspenseful. Two great movies in one package!

Signs: One of the best alien invader movies going. This flick will make you jump out of your seat, plus warm your heart. Gibson at his best.

The Village: a good scare, don't watch alone or you won't go to sleep.

Both these movies have excellant stars in leading roles. Both are different in styles and story backgrounds. I enjoyed both moves and are great additions to my extensive library.
