The movie's only redeeming qualities are it's soundtrack and decent effects. It has a few nice action scenes, but most are so stale.

Everything else about the movie doesn't work! I'm flabbergasted people would actually defend this film. I know we're all fans of M. Night, and some of us fans of the show, but that doesn't mean we're forced to enjoy something we would trash if it were created by someone else with the same quality. The movie has an absolutely terrible script, so many plot holes, so much exposition (broke the filmmaking rule of "show-don't-tell"), horrible acting, head-spinning pacing, mostly stale action scenes, awkward camera shots, atrocious dialogue, complete lack of character development, and is one of the worst ADAPTIONS ever -- there was no respect for the subject matter. He changed so many things! And much of the time it makes no sense! The worst part is that he can't admit he made a terrible movie. That's a bad sign. Even Michael Bay admitted Revenge of the Fallen had serious flaws. M. Night didn't think everything through. The movie's a completely murky, heartless film. All this leads to the biggest cinematic sin: Boredom.

Did he want it to come out that way? I doubt it, but of course M. Night could do no wrong. *Sarcasm.

It's not that we have to enjoy the film, but if someone does, then they do. You can't change that.

I mean, the fact is, "The Room" is probably one of the worst films of all time, but there has to be at least one person out there who likes it. While on the other hand, "The Godfather" is considered one of the greatest movies of all time (and it's sequel), but I know people who don't like it.

It really isn't a matter of "best" or "worst"... it's just whether or not you like it.

True, that. What's "The Room"?

Has anyone seen it more than once? If so, did you like it more or less the second time?

Is it really possible to like a movie more the second time? I mean, not to say it isn't possible, but once you've seen the movie, there's no surprise or anything.

Many movies grew on me as time went on, and this one wasn't a devastating blow to me in the first place. I am going to see it again once the crowds die down, and I will have a nice detailed review of it then for you guys.  ;)

Yeah, I apologize for freaking out on you all like that, lol. But I'm just so shocked by how bad the movie is (imo).  :-\

But yeah, you're all welcome to share your opinions, of course.

Hehe, no worries. :D

You know what's really funny? There's a post in the LITW forum also called "Worst movie ever." People really have differing opinions. LITW is my all time favorite film.

She looks like my friend Ashley. Both are lovely ladies. Who called Taylor ugly? They need eye transplants.

I think the ending was drawn too far from the original spirit of the series. Half of the whole second season consists of Aang dealing with his feelings about the way he acted in his Avatar state in the northern water tribe. It will change a lot for the second movie, but it also provides a way to cut out all that long, dawn-out coming to terms with his power by having him skip it altogether (saves time in movie number 2) I also didn't like the mispronunciation of a lot of the names. I wish the classic avatar humor had not been cut out of the film altogether, and I would like to have had more time spent on Zuko and (especially) Iroh.

That being said, the cinematography and music were beautiful. The stunts were well-coordinated, and the emotions were portrayed powerfully - from Zuko's frustration and embarrassment to Aang's childish rage, Sokka's bravado, to Katara's invincible hope. The climax was very moving and the ending is inspiring. Not all of Shyamalan's best qualities shine through, but it was a good movie overall.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

I actually liked the way the ending was handled; I thought it was more in the spirit of the Avatar than a crazed rampage, though I see your point.

Do "made for television" or "straight to video" movies count in this "worst movie ever" category, 'cause "Secret of NIMH 2" and "Out of Jimmy's Head" was pretty awful.
