The Last Airbender
How bad could it be? Maybe the worst big budget Hollywood movie I've ever seen. It was just dreadful. I mean, the first hour was, which was all I watched because I had better things to do. Maybe the ending was amazing. Maybe Shayamalan's big twist was that the movie stopped being a huge piece of shit right at the end. If so, my bad. But I tend to doubt it, since it was all so bad. It seemed like the possibilities were there, since the mythology presented was kind of neat and some of the visuals and special effects were well done and quite striking, but the story sucked and the acting was awful. And as cute as that little kid was, the idea of watching him knock people over with his wind blasts (or whatever) just never looked cool.
Oh, and if you are going to have a big villain in your movie who's supposed to be scary and evil, don't get one of the corespondents from the Daily Show.
