Podcast: The Last Airbender (2010)

Aang Last Airbender Shymalan

M. Night Shyamalan writes and directs this adaptation of the popular Nickelodean show. It has the same skilled writing and energized fight scenes as the show except not at all. It's actually a stilted rushed mess that muddies up the quality of the source material, laden with lazy exposition and non-sensical character mood swings. And everyone mispronounces their own names. Starring the kid from Slumdog Millionaire and no one else.

Some Other Notes:
  • Peebending inevitably leads to bloodbending.
  • AS YOU KNOW...
  • We eagerly await the return of Exposition Boy in The Last Airbender 2: Bend Harder.
  • "We were trapped under the water of the ocean. Thanks for saving me!"


  1. Why did you make an M. Night Shyamalan tag? Won't be needing that again! This is his only failure.

    1. Well, it took a whole week to use that tag again.

  2. You say think Katara's a bad waterbender because she's a woman?
