Oh, Blow Me

This is my serious face. Also my only face.My latest MSN DVD column is up, examining the absolute disaster that is M. Night Shyamalan’s “The Last Airbender”.

I take no pleasure in this, since I think Shyamalan actually is the cinematic artist he believes himself to be, at least some of the time; “Lady in the Water” may make not a lick of sense, but it’s a gorgeous film to simply experience, and “The Village” has an exquisite sense of dread and stillness that’s unfortunately perforated any time somebody opens his or her mouth.

“The Happening” and “The Last Airbender”, though? I got nothing.
