Okay, so I don't understand this... Been away for too long I guess. But I'm always in on helping someone with their voice recording fetishes, sooooooo vocaroo.com/i/s13br91NoaNe
@Taro_Tanako Vampire huh? Okay...
Well, I'd say what made me write my bible was more the childish response. But hey, I can't really see the problem of stating my own opinion which you consider unpopular, but alas, as the great king once said: "Have it your way."
Oh, I'm sorry if I wasn't clear @Inia I try not to write a lot unless I find it necessary. Congratulations, you made it necessary! To start with the obvious, the childish way you proceede to phrase this statement was quite enticing, be it your own idea of provocation or just mere coincidence, I gladly oblige to it. As for my opinion on Mr, Shyamalan's work, granted it's my opinion, like you have yours, is based with the thought of all his history, and works, his quick rise to fame, his slow downfall that should've been quicker, his overall decline in quality as a film maker. He started very well, I might say, his first two movies had great potential, and are still aclaimed pieces today, the sixth sense being a work of reference for him, this sucess gave him so much hype that he was proclaimed the next Spielberg, can you imagine that? But then the downfall, when Signs came along people were starting to notice somethings, Shyamallan has some very odd ways of writting and directing, be it weird morals, twists that either went nowhere or were just too obvious to begin with, each of his movies can show so many of those flaws, signs for awfull story-telling, the village for predictableness and writting clichés, the happening for, well, disgusting acting, stupid dialogue, and all of the above. And don't get me started on the last airbender. Most of the flaws we can point out on him though come from how he just can't tell how people act in real life, he has a phobia of apostrophes, he makes kids say ridicullous speeches, etc. But he his showing promise, especially with his newest movie The Visit, some sins of the past seem to have been purged, sure not entirelly, but it does show potential, I do not hate this man, or his work, but I can't support those who defend him as a good director, he's not, he has so much to learn until that happens, people aren't so dumb as to just hate something they don't understand too, the world isn't that stupid or simple, sometimes people just goof at their job, as the backlash been too severe on him for it, maybe, we're not perfect, but he did make a ton of continuous mistakes, he isn't edgy, or artsy, or good. Movies don't work like that, the world doesn't work like that, want good directors? Try Kubrick, try Wells, try Spielberg, try Eisenstein, try Tarantino, try Scorsese, Hitchcock, Lynch, Nolan, Coppola, Kurosawa, Cameron, Scott, Burton, Cronenberg, De Palma, Anderson. The world is filled with so many great directors who left so many important marks on cinema, explore them, their gifts are plenty and so beautiful, why claim you reached the top when you have so many other bigger mountains around you? All I really wanted to say is, don't make quick judgements on things, be it your vision on a director, or the world, there's so much out there to learn, heck, the great movies that are coming out right now just show how much there still is to see. So, please, at least try to reconsider your opinions.
Wow, no, no nononononononono. Okay this is here for a reason, I know. But still seriously? And the village of all movies to defend? You could've chosen the sixth sense or unbreakable. The vilage is such an obvious movie, and I guarantee it does not go over anybody's head, especially that obvious "twist". Also, comparing a mediocre director with a thing that makes movies... no shit you prefer M. Night Shyamallammadingdong's work.
Here's some classics:

Well, after being mentioned like that I can't really stay quiet now can I? So, I guess I'll make a little list of my own to partner up with the original. Although a few of my favs have already been posted by @Taro_Tanako there are still quite a few that I either never told him, or that we disagreed on. Still I will restrict myself to the same number as him and stick to 10 OP's, or else I'd fill this thread to the brim.
1. "Küsö Mesorogiwi" by Yousei Teikoku - Mirai Nikki
One of the most graphic and intense OP's I've seen, both visually and musically. This opening was my first introduction to the series actually, before watching it I asked a friend what he had thought of it, and asked if I would like it, he just chuckled and showed me this. And I got to say, there really is no better way to explain this anime to someone who hasn't watched it yet.
2. "H.T" by Tsuneo Imahori - Trigun
Okay, so not only is this one of the most awesome anime around, not only is it hot gunslinging action in a post-apocaliptic future, not only does it have a bad-ass MC in a red jacket. But it has this OP that just oozes coolness from it, but not the jazzy relaxed coolness from Hellsing, instead you have the somewhat chaotic and fast riffs of a rockin' guitar that actually go very well with the MC's life. So yeah, it's one of my fav's. www.youtube.com/watch?v=SSX58TglZRs
3. "Uninstall" by Chiaki Ishikawa - Bokurano
So little kids pilot a giant robot to save the worl- Wait! Wait! This anime isn't as basic as you think, it holds many surprises up it's sleeve, and they are somewhat spoiled by this genial OP, now I won't go into much further detail, because this is an anime everyone should see.
4. "Hacking to the Gate" by Itou Kanako - Steins;Gate
Honestly, kinda surprised Taro left this one out, being a fan of this anime and all. Plus, just look at it, the animation, how it works so well with the music, the clever samples of the music, the imagery, and the way this all works with the show is great.
5. "Sono Chi no Sadame" by Hiroaki "Tommy" Tominaga - JoJo's Bizarre Adventure
Ok, now I'm getting personal with this. I freaking love this show! All of the seasons, the characters are so great, the comedy works so well in it's bizarre (hehe) world. This is a manry anime, it's action, it's adventure, it's silly but awesome at the same time, it's shouting names and it's a bunch of fighting for what's right, it's god damn JOJO! (honestly was stuck between this and second OP, but this is the best in terms of corelation with the show itself.)Second OP for those interested... www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFkPqh0z-_Y&feature=youtu.be&t=1s
6. "What's Up People?!" by Maximum The Hormone - Death Note
Ah, my first anime that made me see just how vast the industry was, and also how disappointing it could be. Yes, Death Note was my proper introduction to Anime, sure by then I'd already seen all the Dragon Balls, and Naruto's around, but this one showed me just how serious a story they could make, tackling philosophy with great drama and crisp animation. Also this OP introduced me to Maximum The Hormone, I was 12, my mind was freaking blown, it was awesome. www.youtube.com/watch?v=HGQAjAjsZNo
7. "Toki Wo Kizamu Uta" by Lia - Clannad After Story
Yes, I'm a guy, yes I like the Clannad series, shut up! Okay, so for those who know, the first Clannad series was okay, a good Visual Novel adaptation without taking many risks, but when this season came along everything changed. And this OP introduced that change ever so subtely while keeping it well masked for the passerby. I won't spoil anything because, again, I think people have to experience this series for themselves. Unless you hate romance, if so, you have no heart.
8. "Guren no Yumiya" by Linked Horizon - Attack on Titan
Get hyped!!! C'mon, if you were into anime when this series came out, you have to admit it caught your eye. No matter what you think of it now you have to admit you were into this OP. I remember just saying the first line of this song on some skype call with friends and they would start singing this without hesitating. Attack on Titan was everywhere, and this song along with it.
9. "Crossing Field" by LiSA - Sword Art Online
I'm just gonna say it, I don't like SAO. I don't like Kirito, I don't like the way it went both in plot and character development, it got boring fast. But this OP! It's just so good, especially the song, it's got to be one of the best anime intro songs for me as a whole, and hey, even though I didn't like the show and only watched to keep up with people, this OP always put a smile on my face before watching an episode... UNTIL THEY FREAKIN' CHANGED IT! www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yg98e4twWmo
10. "Howling" by Abingdon Boys School - Darker Than Black
My God I'm feeling so nostalgic now, remember this show? Remember this awesome intro? Remember how awesome everything was? Remember how they screwed it all up in Season 2? Yeah, again mistakes can happen, but still when you get something right, you have to appreciate it, and this is damn right. www.youtube.com/watch?v=kw5LPFUlVYQ
I go for Anime, peace would be boring.
