The Village (2004) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Signs (2002) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Unbreakable (2000) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
The Sixth Sense (1999) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image
Wide Awake (1998) - Posted ImagePosted ImagePosted Image (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.
