  • Nothing redeeming about Shyamalan's 'Airbender'

    M. Night Shyamalan has outdone himself yet again ... but not in a good way.

    I actually enjoyed his films up until "The Village," which had its moments but was ultimately a letdown. Then "The Lady in the Water" came out and I couldn't gain interest in it whatsoever.

    He hit his low spot with "The Happening," but even that movie is redeeming in you can make fun of it to get some enjoyment.

    Now, he has unleashed "The Last Airbender," a film not even worth making fun of.
