    The term 'amalgamation' pertains to a combination of two or more. This is a personal blog which is a combination of musings of my activities, thoughts, inspirations, ideas, and everything that happens around me.

  • Be inspired, have peace of mind


    As a personal blog, there are articles written not just for the sole intention of writing but are also directed to share experiences to uplift and inspire the downtrodden.

  • Love, love, love


    There's beauty in everything. Be filled with love as you listen to love songs you may want to sing along with.

  • Tragedies and Disasters


    Life isn't always about fun and happiness. Get a glimpse of me as I speak my mind about tragedies, disasters, and pains.

  • Hope


    Life won't have meaning if everyone turns blind and start to see no hope. There is always hope, just waiting to be lit. Read through articles filled with hope.

  • Movies and so much more!


    Occasionally, I'm inclined to write reviews for movies, places, restos, or just about anything. Watch out for those cutting remarks! =)

The Last Airbender

Monday, August 9, 2010


Release Date: July 1, 2010
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Screenwriter: M. Night Shyamalan
Starring: Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel, Jessica Jade Andres, Aasif Mandvi, Shaun Toub, Cliff Curtis, Keong Sim
Genre: Adventure, Fantasy
Official Website:
Review Rating: 8/10
Plot Summary: Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, the live-action feature film is set in a world where human civilization is divided into four nations: Water, Earth, Air and Fire.

The Fire Nation is waging a ruthless, oppressive war against the other three nations. The film's hero, the reluctant young Aang, is the "Last Airbender" -- the Avatar who, according to prophecy, has the ability to manipulate all of the elements and bring all the nations together. Aided by a protective teenage Waterbender named Katara and her bull-headed brother Sokka, Aang proceeds on a perilous journey to restore balance to their war-torn world.

My Review: This one is the first installment of a proposed trilogy. I've been a huge Avatar fan for many year now. And I'm sure that lots of other big Avatar fans out there would agree if I said that the movie was rushed.

I would not say I'm completely disappointed because although the movie's progression was fast-paced, it really went all out in the special effects department. Appa, Aang's flying Bison was exquisite and just completely blew me away. Aang's abilities were given due credit, justice and honor to the original character of the animated series. However, I was really disappointed of how Katara's and Sokka's characters came out short from what the audience had loved them for in the series. Sokka had always been gullible and lively, Katara always in the rescue whenever they got into trouble. But here, the two supporting characters were hardly recognizable from their original characters in the series.

I felt that the movie is not as good as it could have been because it did not have the ability to create equally strong supporting characters in their animated series counterparts.

Heven't seen it. Also a huge avatar fan. But the reviews were horrible. Yours is one of the nicest I've read.

The 8/10 rating is too high for me. I'm such a fan boy of the series and Mr. Shyamalan got it all wrong. I know that the reality of interpreting such a loved movie is friggin' hard but he killed it in a very bad way. It sucked like the way Hitler is getting his ass rammed by ten thousand demons right now. Hahaha.. But, still, having said that, I'm a hypocrite because I watched it. I did so because I'm hoping my paid ticket would add to the millions that viewed the flick so that Mr. Indie Director could redeem himself in the second installment. I'd give it more like a 5 however I do respect your dreview. I'm just giving mine. :)

I was skeptical when I heard it was an M. Knight production. I was hopeful that at least the integrity of the characters would remain in place. After viewing the movie, I immediately went to the DVD collection and pulled the animated series out. I am actually working on my blog, searching the net for news on upcoming movies, and watching Sucker Punch online all at the same time with my employee DISHONLINE.COM access.
