M. Night Shyamalan Reviving Tales From the Crypt for TNT

Which is kinda scary no matter how you look at it.

I don't know what's scarier: the Cryptkeeper, Hollywood's incessant need to cater to nostalgia, or the fact that M. Night Shyamalan is the person attached to revive Tales From the Crypt for TNT.

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.

Oh Hollywood

It seemed that the twist in this story came early, when writer and director M. Night Shyamalan claimed in an interview with 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.

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.

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.

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.
