Yes, he farking ruined that movie.


AeAe: Mugato: There's nothing wrong with having 2 good films on your resume. shiat, I have maybe 1/2. The Sixth Sense and Unbreakable were good films. Most great bands usually have only one good album in them even though they keep making shiat.

Did you know that Mark Walberg is going to be in Transformers 4?!?


And that's actually an improvement (if true).

LDM90: Is that one of those movies about an ugly girl who is really just a pretty girl with glasses?


Yes.

She's "brainy" (as evidenced by the fact that she can quote CNN!), "mousy," "anti-social" "art chick" who is one removed bobby pin and a pair of contact lenses away from ultra-babedom.

Oh no, a lot of my friends and I like that movie.  It just doesn't get a lot of attention because it wasn't M. Night's "breakout" hit, and probably got lost in the shuffle of a lot of "better" movies that came out at the time.

Yeah I'm still trying to figure out how he
A) Turned Sokka into... .. someone pretty unhumorous. I mean, he even says, in the show kay Karma person or thing whoevers in charge of this stuff, if I can just get out of this situation alive, I will give up meat, and sarcasm. Ok? That's all I got. It's pretty much my whole identity, Sokka, the meat and sarcasm guy, but I'm willing to be Sokka the veggies and straight talk fellow."
B) Did not even seem to grasp *how one of the characters names was pronounced*.
C) And pretty much EVERYTHING ELSE.


I mean, all you had to do, *ALL YOU HAD TO DO* to make it a good movie was just cut a lot of the extra plot, make it fairly bare-bones. You might have to replace some characters with others (Maybe Zuko does't get quite as much characterization. Maybe we don't get to see the fire island players in the third movie, since that was really just a cleverly disguised recap episode. Maybe Jet, and the whole 'APPA IS KIDNAPPED APPA IS MISSING' storyline goes down the toilet. Whatever!). Thrown in a few in jokes in the background (MY CABBAGES), don't totally fark up the casting, AND YOU'RE GOLDEN.

100 Watt Walrus: Headline must be sarcastic. "She's All That" is off-the-charts awful. Arty outcast learns happiness is wearing lip gloss and dating jocks with two-digit IQs? One of those fictional worlds where although jocks are all bastards, geeks secretly aspire to be jocks and everyone, regardless of clique, goes to the same parties? Not one character which isn't a horrible cliché? Yeah, great movie.

All of these. And then some.

Mugato: Cheater71: To be fair, the first two Scary Movies weren't that bad. They were actually trying to have a story and use it to riff on other, better films. Plus Tim Curry is in the second one, so i can't hate it.

 I only remember the first one but at least it didn't have jokes like, "Look at that thing from that movie that was out at the time of shooting and is already a year old and we added Carmen Electra!". That's the joke.

What the hell happened to parody movies like Airplane and Naked Gun?


Oh, c'mon. You can't tell me that you didn't laugh your ass off in Meet The Spartans when Xerxes appears and is played by Ken Davitian from Borat and one of the characters is all "hey, look! It's the fat guy from Borat!"

I guess the subtle layering of the joke went over your head when Xerxes tuened into Megatron for some reason and played Chris Crocker's "leave Britney alone" video. I was all "I saw that on the internet! And now here it is in this movie!!!"

Well played, Friedberg and Seltzer. Well played.

In She's All That, the jock is smarter than the art chick (he's something like 4th in the class, and I think he is hiding acceptance letters from his dad), I don't think any of the geeks are trying to be jocks as Cook's character tries hard to avoid hanging out with them and feels out of place at the party scene.

While I too was dissapointed by Airbender, your "All you had to do" list pretty much applies to every bad movie made ever.  If it was that easy, every movie would be good.

My favorite scene was when Chris Evans serenades her with Janie's Got A Gun. Really funny send up of post-Columbine zero-tolerance paranoia in high school.

Although, does it still count as parody considering that is probably exactly how that scene would play out if it were to happen in real life?

10 Things could have been redeemed if after meeting Julia Stiles and realizing how much he liked her, Heath Ledger gave back the money and started persuing her for his own reasons, being more fairhful to the source material in becoming a battle of wills between the two leads. As it is, it becomes just like She's All That. Counting down the seconds until She Finds Out About The Payoff leading to the predictable third act crisis.

He's "smarter" in the say way she's "brainy" - based on one throw-away stock characteristic as thin as the paper in the script. And the geeks are portrayed as wishing they could be like the popular people. Cook's character doesn't because she's supposed to be "different" - in the same way she's supposed to be awkward-looking until she takes takes off her glasses and becomes hot.

Jim from Saint Paul: [www.filmequals.com image 493x284]



The pronunciation of "Aang" wasn't a showstopper for me. Shyamalan's pronunciation is actually closer to the way Tibetan monks would pronounce it, and of course the Airbender culture was based on Tibetan monks (just as the Southern Water Tribe at the South Pole was based on Innuit culture, the Northern Water Tribe was based on Scandinavian culture, the Foggy Swamp Water Tribe was based on Cajun culture, the Earth Kingdom was based on Han China, and the Fire Nation was based on Imperial and/or Shogunate Japanese culture). I figure that the creators knew this (they did their homework ridiculously well [all those Chinese scrolls and signs and posters and such in the series? They all really do say what they're supposed to say, and in an ancient form of Chinese writing, not modern Chinese!]), but altered the pronunciation for some reason (perhaps they tested it with young viewers who liked "Aing" better than "Awng," or perhaps they were wanting to show deliberate differences from the source cultures for some reason [I have an hypothesis about this]).

Far worse was how he took one of the greatest of modern mythologies, the very best animated drama series ever made by Americans (yes, better even than Disney's "Gargoyles," and I didn't think that that was possible!), and totally stripped it of everything that made it so good.

Felgraf touched on what he did to Sokka, but consider Aang (and not just the pronunciation of his name). I saw an interview with young Noah Ringer on YouTube before seeing the movie, and was stoked at how much like Aang this kid was ― not just in appearance, but in personality. He was fun-loving, just like the animated Aang. He basically needed only to play himself, and he'd nail the part. It was wonderful casting (despite the wrong ethnicity, which so many fans harped on).

But Noah and the other actors could only say the words and perform the emotions and actions that Shyamalan's script and directing instructed them to do. While some of it may appear to be bad acting, most of it wasn't. It was competent actors for the most part being horrifically constrained by an abysmally written script and utterly inept direction, and that looked like bad acting to most viewers.

Aang was supposed to be fun-loving. But as with Sokka's sarcasm, Shyamalan drained every quark and lepton of that right out of the character. This wasn't just a characterization element. It was vital to the plot! In the series, Aang asks Guru Pathik why the Avatar Spirit that inhabits him had to be born as a human being, rather than being a spirit beast (like the Ocean and Moon Spirit koi fish at the North Pole spirit pool) or other entity. Pathik informed him that the Avatar Spirit was the guardian of the balance in the world, and to be motivated to protect it properly, it had to learn to love the world. Aang was so determined to save the world precisely because he was so fun-loving!

Add into that the horrible pacing and plot decisions ― cutting major plot elements out (including ones that have major ramifications later in the story), yet somehow finding time to have Admiral Zhao (Aasif Mandvi) talk about how he'd found the secret of finding and killing the Moon Spirit (and thus stripping Waterbenders of their powers) at an ancient library hidden in the desert ― repeatedly! Over and over!

So any plot points that counterdict your theory are now "throw-away stock characteristics as thin as the paper in the script"?  That's not how that works - if they are stock characteristics they would conform to the arch-types you originally described.  The acceptance letter thing was pretty central to his character to show that even the "perfect" people have problems that affect them even if they seem like superficial problems.  I am not sure what geeks you are talking about - they really only developed her and her friend and neither were desperate for popularity.  I guess you could argue her brother, but he wasn't in her circle.  Further, there were really only two bastards in the "cool group" - his ex and the guy who tried to bang Laney.  Everyone else was pretty accepting.

This was one of the better teenage rom-com/shakespeare mashups from that era.

I agree with a lot of this wall of text.

However, and not to defend M. Night (the movie sucked and he should feel bad), there are a lot of issues with the idea of an Airbender movie.

First - there is no good, clear plot for a 2 hour movie.  Could he had made better choices on what plot to focus on?  Sure.  But he would never capture it all in 2 hours.  Can't be done.  Plus, I think he had to toe the line between stand alone movie v. first of a franchise... that just doesn't work well.

Second - casting.  Yes the casting was bad (and racist).  Child actors are always hit or miss (and miss big).  I think it may have worked better to age everyone to 18ish and mix up the races a lot more (rely on clothes for the tribes).

bacongood: Second - casting. Yes the casting was bad (and racist).



Aww hell the goddamn racist card again. Waaaaaay too many folks focused on the races of the people cast in that movie. I don't care if any of them had been cast with an assortment of Blacks, Asians, Indians, Native Americans, Caucasians or whatever as long as the characters had been written and acted well, and that is where the movie failed and failed hard, much like the other posters were stating. The characters were poorly written and directed, and they tried to fit too much into a single movie. It would have been better to do the movies as a minimum of 2 movies per book of the series (Water, Earth, Fire) and get more of the characterization and character growth that each character goes through. The character interaction and growth was where that series shined, it's damned rare to see a cartoon aimed at kids and teens where the characters aren't just static archetypes.

I don't care that Kingpin from Daredevil and Nick Fury from the Marvel movies was cast as different races than the original comics either. Unless it's a movie based on actual historical events I pretty much don't care what skin color and features a character has, even if they don't match whatever book, story or otherwise uses as a description, as long as the personality is intact and the character is well written and acted.

It's a pretty awesome book about the 80s/90s indie scene that doesn't pull many punches (especially regarding the Weinsteins) and dovetails with The Men Who Would Be King, a book about the creation and running of Dreamworks.

A good example is how M. Night Shamalayan badmouthed Harvey over cuts made to his first movie, Wide Awake. When Sixth Sense took off, in retaliation Harvey threatened to release the "director's cut" of Wide Awake so people could see how terrible a director M. Night really was. It's pretty brutal.

Fano: Some one hit wonders: Jimi Hendrix, Rush, Lou Reed, Janis Joplin, Devo, Iggy Pop, Bo Diddly, Grateful Dead


"Hit" and "good" are two different things.

See also, Michael Bay.

Haha, Janis Joplin sure was a "last hit" wonder.
