Yes, it's all about the articles.
Calling someone "the" shit = positive :)
Calling someone "a" shit = negative :(

To be more specific about the origin of the phrase, in many contexts, "shit" has been used simply as a crude slang term for "stuff". It started to lose its negative connotation and become more neutral in some contexts. There was also a phrase "the stuff", which could sometimes be a very positive descriptor, as in "Ah, that's the stuff." With "shit" becoming sometimes just a more intense/vulgar version of "stuff", the phrase "the shit" came to mean something intelsely positive! Just as Tony Matrisotto said, however, the article is VERY important. "The" is definite, implying something special. "A" is indefinite, implying something common.

Yeah sorry Mohammed. Thanks Tony and Anthony for clearing that up. By the way...the film was unbelievable! (also in a good way). I highly suggest watching "Brick" as well. Both Rian Johnson directed and Joseph Gordon Levitt was the star. Great neo-noir flick

"Looper" is not quite as entertaining as say "Total Recall". However, it engages you from its first frame. But to truly understanding it's point, you have to resign yourself to the bleakness of a future where the cynical overrules the aspirational. At any given time, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, rises to the occasion when challenged with an increase in a visionary future and landscape. While I would predict the future as a complex and sorrowful time, gh. V. B bb
