Rob's just trying to get out of his end of the bet. He doesn't really think it was a good movie. No one does.
"The laws of chance suggest that something should have gone right. Not here."
The Last Airbender is so bad, it borders on vindictive. I honestly believe that Avatar: The Last Airbender angered M. Night somehow (maybe one of his kids said it was better than Lady in the Water?) and he made this movie solely to get his revenge by maliciously ripping all of the humor and character and suspense and tension and romance and drama and epic action out of the franchise, leaving it a soulless shell of its former self. In 3D.
At least, I hope that's the reason behind this. I'd hate to think something like this was created with good intentions.
To Be Continued...
I'd like to think that the questionable casting and the director's ignorance regarding the source material will not effect the outcome of this movie. I hope that the strength of the original work will shine through no matter what. I doubt it will be as good as the cartoon, but it can still great in its own way.
I'm looking forward to seeing who is right. Stay tuned for the results.
