The MoonPie has been waiting for MONTHS for the movie, The Last Airbender, to arrive. Tomorrow is the big day and I’ve promised to take her. In truth, I’ve been excited to take her since I’m a fan of the cartoon and I missed Toy Story 3. Then I read this:
“The Last Airbender” is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented. The laws of chance suggest that something should have gone right. Not here.
Ebert gave it HALF a star. I’m going to spend $47.50 on tickets and popcorn for a HALF star movie. A half star movie with no handsome love interests in my age range. I really think I should reconsider. What would it teach my daughter if we just went willy-nilly, wasting money on poorly reviewed movies? It’s wrong on so many levels. What I SHOULD do is take her to a good movie, a movie that received TWO out of four stars. A movie so good it’s breaking all records!
Awesome. We’re all in agreement.
Twilight:Eclipse it is. She’ll be over the nightmares in a week. Two at most.
