I didn't give two fucks about ever seeing this movie even before reading the reviews, but these are hilarious. M. Night Shyamalan is such a hack.

"The Last Airbender is an agonizing experience in every category I can think of and others still waiting to be invented."

"Let's just be honest: M. Night Shyamalan is an idiot."

"The Last Airbender is dreadful, an incomprehensible fantasy-action epic that makes the 2007 film The Golden Compass, a similarly botched adaptation of a beloved property from another medium, look like a four-star classic."

"This colossal folly, the fiasco of the summer of 2010 — gives us all a ringside seat at the sight of Mr. “I See Dead People’s” career gurgling down the drain."

"The most well-rounded failure of the year so far."

How this douche continues to get money to make movies is beyond me. Yes Sixth Sense was kinda cool, pretty much everything else he has made has been garbage.

As a fan of the cartoon, this pisses me off but it doesn't surprise me either.

Guess I gotta start prepping the the Molotov cocktails and googling Shyamalan's address.

I have no idea what this is supposed to mean, "rotten tomatoes reviewers". The critics on rotten tomatoes are a compilation of basically every major critic from every major publication, so I'm not sure what your statement is indicating. I guess I'd perceive it to mean film critics in general are terrible.

The critics on that site's careers are solely focused on viewing and critiquing films. Sure, there's a ton of idiotic critics out there (Armond White, for example), but when you take an average of ALL reviews submitted for a film, it's usually a solid indication of whether it's a good or bad movie. I know people would still disagree with me on that, but that's how I look at it.

rotten tomatoes has their "top critics" who are the major critics....but i think the majority of the rest of them are just kind of no-names, aren't they?

I dunno, I was under the impression that they also had amateur critics as well. But just in general, I hardly ever agree with reviews I read on there and I'll never use it to judge whether I'll see a movie or not. Most I've read were really terrible so I mostly avoid it altogether.

Basically, but it encapsulates a ton of reviews from the "Top Critics" (i.e. NY Times, Chicago Tribune, etc, etc), but I believe there's a screening process for becoming a critic on that site. You need to be part of some sort of online or printed publication to have your reviews posted as a critic. If they accepted reviews from any random asshole there'd probably be thousands of reviews for every new movie.


I have no idea what that means pollcat, unless it was implying that I myself am a critic of sorts lol.
