  1. 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.

  2. Star Wars to Be Released In 3-D

    Add another item to the list of things that George Lucas will do to beat one last round of cash out of his "once beloved accidental masterpiece." In a move that we're much more familiar coming out of big studios who wouldn't know artistic motivation if it kicked them in the pants, Lucas will be re-releasing all six Star Wars movies to theaters in 3-D, beginning in 2012 with Episode I: The Phantom Menace.   According to The Hollywood Reporter, he was inspired by Avatar.  (Not The Last Airbender.) 20th Century Fox must be pinching themselves.

  3. 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."

  4. 10 Trailers Better Than the Actual Movie; Or, Why I Might Already Despise Inception

    With only three days to go before the opening of Christopher Nolan's mindbender Inception -- its hype having escalated to unbearable, volcanic levels -- I can only feel ... disgruntled at the deluge of previews Warner Bros. still smashes into my eyeballs at every turn, whether on the computer at my office, or on a TV screen at home, or on a giant building as I attempt an innocuous stroll down the street. One of the more recent trailers, though admittedly awesome, pretty much introduced every major character.

  5. Aang is Not the Last Airbender: The 3 Biggest Unanswered Questions In Avatar

    So there's an Avatar: The Last Airbender movie, and, according to reliable sources, it sucks.

    FORGET ABOUT THAT.

    There's an Avatar: The Last Airbender cartoon, and it is still totally awesome.  By way of reinforcement, I give you my three favorite questions that were left completely unanswered over the course the series.  I'll try to keep it to a level where non-fans can enjoy as well, but I won't be able to do it without some spoilers.  If you're only part-way through the series, or plan on watching it later, consider yourself warned.

  7. New Airbender TV Spot: Appa’s Creepy Face

    Avatar: The Last Airbender (A. K. A. the real Avatar) is nearly upon us, and so we're down to the final few TV spots to pour over. Unnervingly, we haven't seen much character dialogue in the released footage, leaving many fans still in suspense over the quality of the acting in the movie. Even I, who have been pretty relaxed in the knowledge that if the movie is awful, it will still be pretty, and I can just go home and watch all four Sozin's Comet episodes to make myself feel better, am getting a little worried. And then there's Appa's face.

  8. 6 Hugh Jackman Period Films That Can Be Watched as Wolverine Prequels

    Hugh Jackman is a jack-of-all-trades sort of actor, as comfortable playing the action hero in a modern special effects blockbuster as he is playing the lead in a period musical.  The best thing about this (I mean, aside from good acting) is that he's done a lot of period films.  He's also the live action face of one of the Marvel Universe's nearly indestructible probably immortal badasses: Wolverine. This lead me inevitably to the conclusion that you could pretend that some of his period films were also about Wolverine.  Secretly. You couldn't call it canonical, since movie Wolverine spends his entire post-X-factor life with his half-brother Sabertooth (until the 1970's or so).  But you could call it amusing. Here's the Netflix queue for your fanfiction adventure:

  9. New Airbender Trailer: Katara Waterbends; Aang Speaks

    A new Last Airbender trailer has surfaced on the Web featuring a few new scenes, including a battle between Zuko and Katara, an awesome shot of Aang's staff swooshing open, and *gasp* Aang speaking at the very end. Watch it here, then read our thoughts:

  10. The Other Avatar: Why You Should Care About The Last Airbender

    Aang fans, we give you: the Superbowl spot for The Last Airbender. Go ahead. Take a moment. We needed one too. We cannot express our feelings about this in this shoddy medium of language and electrons. We watched it here at a table full of other interns who had no idea what's going on, and couldn't keep the big doofy grin off our face. We don't want to talk about whether it will be good or not, we just want to appreciate this.

    So in lieu of trying to shoehorn overused terms like "awesome," "incredible," or "speechless" into some run on sentences, we will use the rest of this post to try and explain to people who have not watched Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender why they should stop associating "avatar" with ten-foot-tall people with arrows and bows, and start associating it with a twelve-year old monk with arrow tattoos.
