    The Village (2004) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Signs (2002) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Unbreakable (2000) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    The Sixth Sense (1999) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Wide Awake (1998) - [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG] (approximate rating since I saw it too long ago to accurately remember much about it other than liking it)
    Praying with Anger (1992)

    I'd order these differently on any given day, for different reasons, but Sixth Sense I've watched the most, Unbreakable has the most pretentious 'auteur' touches, Signs has an ending some dislike, and The Village annoyed a lot of people but I loved it.

    probably:
    Unbreakable
    Sixth Sense
    The Village
    Signs
    Wide Awake

    In order of merit:


    1.The Sixth Sense (1999) ***1/2
    2.Signs (2002) ***
    3.Unbreakable (2000) ***
    4.The Village (2004) **1/2


    Although all of his films are well-crafted and have intriguing storylines, only THE SIXTH SENSE is an outright success as the rest are all flawed and (to a greater or lesser degree) disappointing.
