The Wait Is Over

June 30, 2010

Tonight’s the big night for Avatar fans lucky enough to live in the US, as The Last Airbender finally hits theaters nationwide at midnight in 2D & 3D! Reviews are already beginning to roll in from advance screenings, and suffice to say things aren’t looking pretty. I will be at the premiere in New York City tonight covering the event! Expect videos from the red carpet, and my in-depth review of the film to pop-up over the course of the 4th of July weekend. Thank you all so much for your support, and be sure to see the film this weekend to judge M. Night Shyamalan’s live action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender for yourself.

Two Views From Test Screening

February 4, 2010

It seems that a test screening of an extremely rough cut of The Last Airbender was held last night in Phoenix, AZ. Two Aint It Cool News readers were in attendance, and wrote up their thoughts. Some good…

Shaun Toub plays Uncle Iroh and is totally one of THOSE guys who is in a million things but I never knew his name. Anyway, by far he is the BEST thing about the movie. Great character, great performance. And Dev Patel was also good as the cast out son of the fire lord. … Overall, I think they have a fun-to-watch summer movie here. I’d put it more on the Narnia level rather than the Lord of the Rings level, but still it has a nice feel to it and unlike most of the other test screenings I’ve been to, I’m actually really looking forward to watching this one again when released to see how it looks in the end.

And some not so good…

Whoever cast this film should be taken to task, because, if this was the best group of actors you could assemble, I’d hate to see the ones you rejected. This was some of the most wooden acting I’ve ever seen.
