After Earth

Are you entertained watching ungrateful children sass their parents in public places? Check out After Earth - M. Night Shyamalan’s documentary on the trials and tribulations Will Smith goes through trying to turn son Jaden into a movie star. (Ostensibly, it’s also a sci-fi saga about a father and son marooned on inhospitable future Earth, working together to find enough cell signal to call an Uber.) Is the twist ending that Shyamalan is working for Scientologists?  Find out when you Donate for Now Playing’s Gold Level Series.

The Happening - Donation Bonus

Bad things keep Happening to M Night Shyamalan!  Was his foray into R-rated horror simply a creative way of committing career suicide?  Or was the Sixth Sense creator under the influence of some kind of psychotropic herb (or $6 cough syrup) when he concocted this loony environmental parable?  And should science teacher Mark Wahlberg be running away from the wind or his traitorous, tiramisu-eating wife Zooey Deschanel? Walk it all backwards with Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob when you Donate for Now Playing’s Gold Level Shyamalan series!

Lady in the Water - Donation Bonus

Or will Stuart, Arnie, and Jakob be forced to tear apart the Story like a pack of wild Scrunts?  Donate Today and find the hidden messages in this unofficial remake of Splash!
