You know the real M. Night problem?
That he keeps getting the title cards in previews and ads.
His agent probably thinks that's a great idea, and it's not.
The groans are 90% for the pretentiousness of continuing to insert those title cards when you've had a string of flops.
Just direct a film. Let people see the film. Stop insisting you're part of the marketing focus for the film. Then, if it's any good, maybe people will stop groaning.
Frankly at this point I think people are underrating
his films because of the "...from the mind of..." nonsense. It irritates people now and they immediately deduct half a star.
