I finally saw Airbender, which hit theaters a few days ago! Some reviews have been negative, other reviews have been also negative. SO YEAH. :/
"But Booter, what do YOU think?"[link]
I viewed this movie with the same malicious glee I usually reserve for MST3King bad pr0n fics. The delicious, creamy lulz that can be extracted from this movie are endless. Expect LOTS and LOTS of parody art in the future!
There were lots of problems with this movie, like EVERYTHING (with exception to the effects, shut up I liked some of the water scenes). I went in figuring it would just suck hard in a few areas, but instead was surprised to find a nice even coating of suck all around. The most *obnoxious* thing in the movie was the sheer amount of exposition, somehow mindbendingly topping even the casting in sheer offensiveness. Editing, dialog, acting, scene composition, LOGIC it's like all the most basic aspects of storytelling were COMPLETELY FORGOTTEN. I also felt a constant fear for Aang's virginity throughout. Uncomfortable!
It wasn't all bad. The bending effects were pretty good...when bending and not interpretive dance occurred. I liked the costumes, and some of the sets were nice to look at. Aang bouncing on his head while fighting Zuko tied up was cool too. But these nuggets of good were just not enough to cover for the bad.
