Very incisive. I never thought of those problems... I remember thinking of millions of plot holes with The Village after seeing it for the first time but don't remember them anymore for some reason. And, Signs, well I think that it takes someone with A LOT of faith to think that everything happens for a reason--what about all the people who died from the aliens and all the other horrible things that happened in the story? I have a problem with the phrase "everything happens for a reason" in a story *and* of course in real life: To say that everything can only be one way and it is as best as it can be is irrational in my opinion. Even worse than saying this is the denial of horror in our world by saying that all that is bad is actually good.
