Worst. Movie. Ever...For Now

M. Night Shyamalan's newest movie, The Last Airbender, was supposed to be his comeback supermovie. On paper, it was a brilliant concept: Take a horror movie 'specialist'(he's gotten a little crappy with this horror flicks), do a 180, give him a big budget, an action/suspense film with a popular fan base and a cult following. I admit, i myself stood up and clapped for Shyamalan when I heard the news. I though: you can't lose.

Why do we do this to ourselves? Never say never. Never hold out hope. Especially when you're dealing with Shyamalan.

Uwe Boll previously held the award for "Worst Director Ever", but that wasn't fair at all. Today, we have a clear victor.

1. s***tiest casting since... Well, i can't remember since i deleted the last trash movie from memory.
2. Terrible acting. I mean, give Luke Skywalkers father a round of applause, because the force has to be strong for this slackjawed hippie to keep getting big roles. Everybody seemed a little lost, like they didn't know how to pronounce things. made me think that the director was making them nervous or throwing them off. I'll bet anyone $12 bucks he was wearing a chicken outfit on set.
3. Don't get me started on the storyline. I mean... my god... LORD HELP US! Only a truly bad movie makes you realize, while watching it, how many flaws it has and how you could fix them yourself and what you would do if you were in charge of this project. sheeesh.
4. what a way to jumble the storyline trying to create a rivoting plot. you could tell this was made for little kids and that the ..ahem... director, didn't know what he wanted to do next. he had no vision. no clear beginning or end, which showed in the scattered lead up to a lackluster climax, laden with innappropriate musical scores.

Just makes me beg the question... M. Night... Do you hate America? To do this to us?
Lead us to believe you are a good storyteller with movies like the 6th Sense. Then throw bricks at our face with things like "The Happening"

The only good thing to come out of the movie was Seychelle Gabriel. What a beauty... Until you google image search her and she's not even a real blonde. or blue eyed. SMH! You'd take even that much away from us Sham-alan... You bastard...

Thank you Rantfoo for letting me vent.

I loved the cartoon series. Even though it was a kids show, it was a damn good series.
However, money obsessed people like Shammalammadingdong get their hands on it and ruin the series, I even heard he was getting a part two.
If I was the creator of Avatar, I wouldn't let that man near my work. Hes bound to mess up with his stupid plot twists

I absolutely loved the cartoon series ("for shame" I know... cartoons). Saying I'm less than thrilled about the movie is an extreme understatement though. I'm as utterly disappointed as you are.

Asian Males are never well represented in entertainment, particularly Hollywood.

After the happaning my friends and I as we left the theater vowed "Never again" I don't care if his next movie cures cancer I'm not going.

I have a sneaking urge to take you up on that $12 bet of yours.

That's just plain ridiculous. Everyone knows he was wearing turkey suit on set. Not a chicken suit. Anyone would agree that a guy wearing a chicken suit on set would've made a better movie.


Chicken suit. *scoff*

Agreed. Not to mention that I've actually been working on the staff of Racebending.com for the past year raising awareness about the discriminatory casting practices displayed in this film, encouraging a boycott. Turns out, the movie boycotts itself.

I thought this movie was going to be awesome, cartoon was prob the best cartoon I've seen on nickelodeon. Movie was a complete disappointment. Plot was horrendous; if I didnt watch the entire series already, I would've been totally lost. Only thing good was the graphics.
