4 Positive Things About The Last Airbender

The action-adventure fantasy film The Last Airbender (2010) is M. Night Shyamalan's most critizised work. Of course, the movie has flaws, like some bad, statuesque actors (except Noah Ringer, whose performance is decent), wooden, underdeveloped dialogues and a story problem.

The year was 2007 and Paranormal Activity was just released into cinemas, to a massive success.

Ice Age is still a very good animated movie, three well defined and characterized characters, interesting premise, combination of emotional scenes with... Continue Reading →
