On the other hand, M. Night has obviously had a head start, with a creative decline that began after Signs (some would say following Unbreakable, and still others The Sixth Sense). Needless to say, people didn’t care what was Happening, and now M. Night’s career is drowning like a Lady in the Water. I’m hoping they take his name OFF promos for upcoming film Devil – which he didn’t write or direct – as audiences have been engaged by the trailer until his name pops up (followed by audible chorus of groans).
Still, in light of a recent YouTube phenomena that rivals double rainbow, I found this Q&A review of The Last Airbender (below) summed up the thoughts of both the die-hard series fans I know, and those who had never heard of it before stepping into the theater (and now wish they hadn’t). Enjoy.
Note to M. Night: stop writing, directing, AND acting everything yourself. Take a tip from a familiar movie title… when it comes to cinematic creativity, it takes a VILLAGE.
