How M.Night Shyamalan Committed Career Suicide

He made a terribly awful joke - which he dared call a movie called Avatar: The Last Airbender. Kids who loved the cartoons, including adults who still think that they're kids, are up in arms on facebook and on the entire Internet, demanding that the producers of the movie bad joke, to use the ticket sales to hire another director and make a remake - quickly before it tarnishes their memories.

io9 couldn't have said it better,

Shyamalan has boiled every epic heroic story of the past 20 years down to its most basic, primal soup-y essence, so he can spray it all over the audience, in a kind of Hero's-Journey bukkake. You will be finding chunks of Joseph Campbell's calcified spooge behind your ears for three days after watching this film, no matter how many times you bathe. 

Seriously, this blog isn't a movie review blog, but out of severe dismay and disappointment, I had to get this out of my system.

M.Night Shyamalan, I am never ever going to watch any of your movies again.

Oh, and by the way, there's a reason why they called the character General Zhou and not General Singh and Firelord Ozai and not Firelord Kupal!
