The Last AirbenderPG, 95min., 2010Cast: Dev Patel, Noah Ringer, Jackson Rathbone, Aasif Mandi, Nicola Peltz, and Cliff CurtisDirected by M. Night ShyamalanScreenplay M. Night Shyamalan based upon the Nickelodeon Animated series “Avatar: The Last Airbender”The Last Airbender is a good looking and expensive summer movie that is brought down to miserable lows due to shoddy storytelling, hollow Nickelodeon-type acting, and the ever-annoying 3D transfer.To describe this story would take an entire 3,000-word review involving alternative universes with eastern religious symbols and age-old rivalries. For those that know the Nickelodeon show, they probability know the backstory and all the little pieces about wind, water, fire, and earth put together, for those like myself, we are given the age old hero's quest to finding himself story.MORE AFTER THE JUMP…
Look, I'm in a box. The fourth and final trailer for M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender has rained down all over our faces and minds and Hush Puppies. It's quite a bit more impressive than previous trailers and that mostly has to do with the addition of dragons. Like every other movie being released in the near future, The Last Airbender is being converted to 3D so that you can enjoy all the earth, wind, and fire right up in your face. I hope they play "September" by those guys on the soundtrack. That song is always fun to stumble around to when you're drunk at a wedding. Check out the trailer after the jump. The Last Airbender blows into theaters July 2.
That's a mighty fine pokin' stick you got yourself there, Mr. Airbender. Oh sorry, it's called M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender. My whoopsie on purpose. The trailer for The Happening director's latest film has been released, and damn if it doesn't look like Night is trying to make us forget he directed The Happening. I've never seen the Airbender cartoons on Nickelodeon because I haven't watched Nick since I discovered my penis, but word is they're pretty bad ass. My excitement toward this film has been minimal to nonexistent and the trailer doesn't do much to perk up my nipples — except maybe for the constant chilly drafts of wind in it. This Airbender guy is worse than sitting next to the door in a busy coffee shop! Am I right or am I right or am I right?! The action looks aight, but I'm kind of getting used to seeing Krakens in my trailers, and the absence of one gives me the frownies. Check out the trailer after the jump and let me know your thoughts. Will this movie vanish from theaters like a fart in the wind?
M. Night Shyamalan is back…but there's a twist! He's doing a kid's movie. I guess he decided to take a break from "scary" since the scariest part about his most recent films are how not scary they are. The Last Airbender is about an Avatar who has the ability to manipulate elements and bring nations together. Also, according to the trailer, he can blow out a shitload of candles with palm-breath. Call me oldfashioned, but I still prefer farts.
