Bloviating Zeppelin: "The Last Airbender" -- To Be AVOIDED

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

"The Last Airbender" -- To Be AVOIDED


I have re-written this post twice in an attempt to be clever, humorous, insightful, and to provide much detail in terms of reasoning for my opinion.

I have since shoved that aside for the goal of brevity.

Because the movie simply doesn't warrant any kind of in-depth analysis.

Let me blunt: "The Last Airbender" is a turd. Avoid it at all costs. Save your money. It is a complete waste of your valuable time. It is senseless, pointless, has no plot that one can discern, no interesting characters. And further, if you absolutely must see it, avoid the 3D version. I have never yet experienced a movie with such lackluster and poor 3D. I wanted to get up and leave after only five minutes. Instead, I had to grind through the entire tedious and nonsensical mess. It was a soul-crushing two+ hours I lost, not to mention my valuable cash.

M. Night Shyamalan should be ashamed for putting his name to such an abortion of a film. Anyone besides myself notice that his films just keep getting worse? His only two good movies: "Sixth Sense" and "Signs."

If you see the film, don't say I didn't warn you.

I haven't seen this and won't. Sixth Sense is such a classic - the gold standard for the unexpected. I loved it and it is on my list of the best ever.

I hate to think he just got lucky.

Well, since I only watch what comes on the airplane, not much chance of my seeing it :-)

Since my local paper's "reviewers" had given it high praise, I was planning on avoiding it.

In the future, to save yourself some cash and to avoid timesuck movies such as this, I suggest you read Bill Goodykoontz's reviews (azcentral.com). Anything above three stars is to be avoided; anything below three strs is a must-see. Three stars is the gamble rating.
