I write many of my TV write-ups way in advance, and as I type this, I am just about finished with Avatar: The Last Airbender. Now, I know by reputation the live action movie is, well, terrible.
But why is it terrible? YouTube channel Wisecrack offers some suggestions.
It would be easy to point to obvious superficial problems in the adaptation that, again, I haven’t seen and don’t plan to. But Wisecrack, as a channel, looks more into the philosophical reasons for why forms of entertainment do and don’t work. They do the same with the movie Last Airbender fans would prefer to pretend doesn’t exist. See below to find out what they have to say.
