THE LAST AIRBENDER ReviewOn February 21, 2005, Nickelodeon aired the pilot to what eventually became their Harry Potter - Avatar: The Last Airbender, a show aimed for 6-11 year old boys. The series was an instant success, with both the intended demographic, but also with teenagers and adults alike. The story followed the last Airbender, the current incarnation of the Avatar, a boy named Aang who was frozen in ice for 100 years. His disappearance allowed for the Fire Nation to launch a full-out war using power from Sozin's Comet, which granted Firebenders almost God-like power. The war started with the eradication of his people, the Air Nomads. 100 years later, he is found by a brother and sister, Sokka and Katara who later go on to help him master all the elements, Air, Water, Earth, and Fire, so he can defeat the Fire Lord before Sozin's Comet arrives again.THE LAST AIRBENDER Review4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

...So yes, I've seen one of my most anticipated movies of 2014 and by far the one that worried me the fucking most.
I really wanted to like this film. I really wanted it to don't make the same mistakes the lame 2012 "Total Recall" remake did. I wanted this to be FINALLY something else with the name RoboCop on it that doesn't suck outside the original 1987 film.
...I just wanted a movie that had a solid plot and that doesn't insult my intelligence, nothing else.
So "RoboCop Reboot" opens with the MGM lion making weird noises instead of its iconic roar... Which made my jaw drop thinking that I may have mistook the theater hall and I was watching the wrong movie.
But soon it turned out to be Samuel L. Jackson, in the role of the witty television presenter Pat Novak, who's kind of a narrator in this movie. Anyhow, he quickly reports the news and we're introduced to the universe this film is set, in the year 2028. The multinational conglomerate OmniCorp is at the

I didn't know what to think of this movie when I first heard about it. I guess I was okay with it, but at the same time indifferent? I thought Henry Cavill was a cool choice for the role of the hero. But what put me off was that they felt the need to use a villain most fans don't care about unless they love the two first Superman movies to death. And it felt like they where overusing CGI like hell, which rubbed me the wrong way.
Then when it was released to cinemas, I saw mixed reviews. Still just didn't know what to think. Now I recieved it on DVD... saw it once, felt like the first half was "meh" and the second half was awesome. Rewatched it, all of it was awesome with one or two nitpicks. Then a third watch, and I think now I can explain just how I feel about the movie overall.
I freakin' love this movie, and I just can't help it. It's almost a irrational love, I feel crazy about it. But of course, I'll be rational - and I will most definitely tell about the flaws I spot with it as
