You know I used to think ID4 was stupid...and then I saw Signs. Now *that's* stupid.
It's more of two hour warning to not waste any more money on that director.
And yet he still get's hired.

Yeah besides the whole point of signs is the aliens invaded a planet that's covered in poison, that rains poison, that has poison in the air for what reason?
It wouldn't have been so bad but they ran around naked, doing very little other than posing for blurry photos and running around on farm house roves. I mean, why exactly?

It really comes down to tone for me. Films like ID4, Armageddon, Starship Troopers and Pacific Rim know full well they're a bit dumb, but don't care and so they can have some fun with it.

Signs (and just about everything by MNS incidentally) on the other hand takes itself *sooooo* seriously that it's actually quite insulting. Also, what kind of egomaniac casts themselves as the visionary seer who will save all of mankind? Yikes!...but I digress.
I don't understand why they couldn't have an eco-suit tip thing like in ID4. But then there is no way to kill them if they just stick on a raincoat.
