M. Night Shyamalan

  1. The Last Airbender (AKA Satan’s Own Movie) Newbie Recap

    I don’t know if it’s completionism or masochism or what, but after finishing my newbie watch of Avatar: The Last Airbender–and before starting on The Legend of Korra–I had to watch the 2010 M. Night Shyamalan version. Or maybe it’s a justice thing. All the other Avatar fans had to go through their own spasms of disappointment when the movie came out. It didn’t seem fair that I would be able to avoid it.

  3. Your Sixth Sense Was Right: It Turns Out M. Night Shyamalan Lied About Ghost Writing She’s All That

    Oh Hollywood

    It seemed that the twist in this story came early, when writer and director M. Night Shyamalan claimed in an interview with Movies.com that he ghost-wrote She's All That, the 1999 romantic comedy starring Freddie Prinze Jr. and Rachel Leigh Cook.  If that news wan't bizarre enough, it turns out that there may be a contender for writing credit for the film.  In fact, it seems that the twist is that Shyamalan didn't write the movie, and felt the need to claim he did anyway.

  5. Honest Trailer of Last Airbender Exposes the Worst of the Worst [Video]

    The honest trailer for The Last Airbender reminds us just how terrible that movie was.

    Remember how great M. Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender was? You don't? Oh, right, because it was actually super terrible. Not that the real trailer made it look that great, but Screen Junkies went ahead and gave it the Honest Trailer treatment just to really drive the point home that it sucked. Their trailers are great, but Airbender is so bad we almost feel sorry for it being on the receiving end of one... and we're over feeling sorry for Airbender. That didn't last long.

  7. Teaser Trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s After Earth is an Alternative History on Facebook

    The first teaser trailer for "twist" master M. Night Shyamalan's post-apocalyptic flick After Earth has surfaced and it's basically Facebook. I mean, it's actually mimicking those retrospective videos that Facebook let users make after it rolled out the new Timeline layout. Weird gimmick or clever narrative technique to outline an alternative history? See the video, and decide.

  8. UltraViolet is Coming, But Will it Burn?

    In non-Apple, non-Microsoft, non-Google news from CES 2011, a consortium of media providers have announced last night that UltraViolet, a cloud-based digital media management standard, will be coming very soon. Hinted at last summer, the Digital Entertainment Content Ecosystem (DECE), which backs  UltraViolet, claim it will provide consumers with life-time rights to the media they buy in addition to the flexibility to watch that content on a variety of devices. It works like this:

  9. The Third Night Chronicles Movie is Basically Unbreakable 2

    Hey, remember Devil? Its trailer ran when you went to see Inception and the whole theater laughed when the words "From the mind of M. Night Shyamalan" flashed up on the screen. Well, turns out it's part of a three part series of horror films "from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan." And the third one is "what would have been the sequel [to 'Unbreakable']."

  10. Nickelodeon Announces New Season of Avatar: The Legend of Korra

    Rumors about a fabled fourth season of Avatar: The Last Airbender have gained traction and number with the release of M. Night Shyamalan's movie, with willful disregard for the actual cinematic worth of the film. Nickelodeon confirmed them all today, with a press statement announcing the production of Avatar: The Legend of Korra, which will pick up the Avatar plot seventy years later, with the Avatar who comes after Aang, a Southern Water Tribe girl (Korra) who has already mastered Water, Earth and Fire.
    Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern "Avatar" world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang's son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.
    *ahem* Squeeeeeee.

  11. M. Night Shyamalan’s Career Trajectory: The Graph

    Unbreakable is such an underrated movie, but: yeah, accurate and brutal. To quote Weird Al Yankovic, "I think the studios should give M. Night Shyamalan just 30 or 40 more chances to make another good movie – then THAT’S IT."

  15. Roger Ebert Hates The Last Airbender

    In spite of our unease about some of its casting decisions, we've had high hopes for The Last Airbender, the M. Night Shyamalan-directed adaptation of the excellent cartoon series, which hits theaters on July 1st. But man ... it's been getting Jonah Hex-like abysmal reviews. It currently has a 00% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and Roger Ebert just dropped a review that gives The Last Airbender a half a star out of four and proceeds to tear the movie to shreds.

  16. What is it about Movies Called Avatar and Race?

    M. Night Shyamalan's forthcoming adaptation of Nickelodeon's animated series Avatar: The Last Airbender won't be released until July 2010, but criticism over the whitewashing of the series' Asian characters has already given birth to a thriving year-old community of dissenters at Racebending.com and preemptive discussions on whether the casting is racist.

    While other movie critics were having eyegasms over Airbender's Superbowl Ad and latest trailer, both Topless Robot and Salon.com turned to address the racial anxiety Shyamalan has stirred up by casting mostly white actors as the series' clearly Asian and Inuit lead characters.
