the last airbender

The Last Airbender – If this were a just and fair world, that would have been M. Night Shyamalan’s last movie, thanks to actors, writers, producers, and production houses wanting to distance themselves as much as possible from a source of such mind-numbingly atrocious dreck in the future… so much for that idea.

  • If this were a fair and just world, Unbreakable would have been his last movie since it was the last decent one he made.

  • Hm. Might honestly have to disagree with you on that one, both on that being good, and his later ones not (I rather enjoyed The Village, though the ending was a given from very shortly in…).

  • Leading up to its release, I was confused about James Cameron’s Avatar (I thought it was related to the cartoon).

    After having seen it, I imagine that had the two Avatar movies swapped directors, both would have been greatly improved (and I haven’t seen The Last Airbender; Cameron could hardly make an M Night movie worse, though).

  • Hm. Cameron probably could not have worsened Airbender any, but I am willing to wager that Shaymalan could have made Avatar even wrose, painful though that prospect might be.

    I get images of painful suspense, awkward silences, and “sudden” plot devices you saw coming from the very beginning… y’know, just take the standard elements of Avatar and square them.
