If the Bee disappears...


"If the bee disappears from the surface of the earth, man would have no more than four years to live."
-- Albert Einstein

Its an alarming statement, and all the more so because there has been a recent decline in the honeybee population. But its also comforting to know that Einstein never really said that. The quotation appears on a blackboard near the beginning of M. Night Shyamalan's "The Happening," a movie that I think I understand. When you watch this film, you might find it boring or uneventful like I did but once you start thinking, "what the hell was that about?", you will realize that it's about us humans, self destructing. At least that's how I see it.

Maybe this movie's purpose was to make us think of the recent things that are happening in our world. Is the human race on its final chapter? Its been in my mind lately. The Global warming. The rising of sea level. The drastic changes in the weather. We have recntly more deadly earthquakes. Have we pushed our planet so far or have we used it up that it can no longer sustain us? That's a scary thought.

But as for the movie itself? It doesn't really cut it like the director's (M. Night Shyamalan) previous movies that he made like The Sixth Sense or Unbreakable or maybe Signs.

Here is a trailer of the movie....
