M Night Shyamalan’s The Last Airbender

July 20, 2010

What is it?

Based on a very inventive and fun cartoon from Nickelodeon, The Last Air Bender is an adventure in another world. This world is made up of four nations, Water, Fire, Earth, and Air. Some members of each nation can “Bend” or move their element through space. Though there may be plenty of other applications, It’s mostly used as a marshal art to fight others with.

Balance is thrown off when the Fire Nation attacks the other three, in an attempt to rule the word. In the midst of this conflict, To Teens, Katara (Nicola Peltz) and Sokka (Twilight’s Jackson Rathbone) Discover the last living Air Bender, 12 year old Aang (Noah Ringer). Aang is not only the last of his people, he is “The Avatar.” A special warrior who has the ability to master all four elements, Bridge the Physical and Spiritual world, Bring balance and understanding, as well as kick major butt with his awesome power.

How was it?
The scope and magnitude of the film raises the level of the film in such a way that the failure of the movie to do anything worth while is simply magnified to a level that begs comparisons to Ed Wood. Right away the acting is on par with a well done Christmas play over at your local jr. high. Unfortunate the dialog complements the acting perfectly. Then there is the story line, it played like a ten year old explains season one of the tv show ( and then this happened, and then that happened..) as a studio exec’s secretary took dictation. The special effects were good but the actual “fighting” was boring and confusing. Where most the fighting was done with element bending, what you see is elongated ti-Che looking dancing with stuff swirling around them. As impressive as the dancing and effects were, I often thought “oh just punch him!”
This is the problem if you only watch the movie, but if you are a fan of the show (or like me, and watched it because you were excited about the movie) you will be even more disappointed. The show is for kids and has goofy humor, but is a lot o fun. Not only is the story very well thought out, the characters are dimensional and interesting. The result is that you care about the characters (even the “bad guys”) and are very interested in the story. All the humor is gone as well as the heart. Aang himself no longer fears being the avatar because he will have to sacrifice his own child hood for the good of the world. (A pain that makes him a real character who you can feel for as well as allowing him to be a fun character.) In the film Aang does not want this duty because the avatar can never have a family. Not only is he a twelve year old boy hoping to grow up to be a family man, its even more ridiculous when you realize he was raised by monks in an all male temple! The result on the movie is it suffers more by comparison. (thus you suffer more as well.)
Just to top everything off, the last image on the screen are the words “written, directed, and produced by M. Night Shamalon. This is killer. This man is the genus behind “Signs.” intact, of his 9 films, one I have not seen, one was silly, six were nothing short of amazing films that rival the films of Alfred Hitchcock, then, the ninth is this atrocity afflicted on film and unleaded on sad audiences with overpriced tickets trying to comfort themselves with thoughts like “maybe he will fix it in the sequel” or “at least I wasn’t watching the new Twilight.” but then you remember that Mr Shamalon had the nerve to include a twilight vampire in the cast, the hurt and sorrow return like flowing water that bends into tears as you just move on to the next question.

Was it worth the extra $3 for 3D?
I think the $3 for 3D was much better spent than the rest of the ticket. The effects were the best part of the film and they looked cool in 3D. I did think the effect was not as flat as Alice in wonderland but not as good as the preview for Voyage o the Dawn treader. There was something weird going on when they has fur hoods on and it got blurry when they panned (which they did a  lot). Maybe if the movie was better, the slight defects in the 3D would detract from the story telling, but with no real storytelling in sight – the 3D helps you focus on the effects.

Is it good for children?
There are some things that may scare small children. Armies are hunting down a 12 year old. But mostly kids will be confused, and fans of the show will be disappointed that “Saka’s not funny and Aang is boring.”

Was it racist?
The tv show has all the characters oriental, though each people group is a different sub set where the group all look like each other but do not look like the other nations or tribes. So, though they are all oriental, you can tell what people group they belong to by there racial features. This seems to me to be a nightmare for casting. So what M. Night has done in this film was to make each nation a fully different race. This is not racist but racial. (If you are unsure of the difference, ask Rhett and link.) Still some point out that the water tribe are heroes and are white while the fire nation are villeins and they are dark. First, the fire nation is is a little more complex that. (That comes through despite the shallow nature of the film.) Further more, the fire nation is Indian! The same nationality as the director / writer / producer. So why would he cast his own race as the fire nation? I do think all the races he picked fit well with the look of the show but the choice was probably just so he could give himself a cameo as a fire nation soldier.

What about spiritual issues?
The show for season one uses Hindu symbolism but in season two starts to get into Hindu/buddhist philosophy as well. Though in the season finally of one, princess Yue is given Christ symbolism when the moon god is killed and she gives her life for his resurrection and the physical salvation Of her people. In the movie the scene is so rushed that the beauty and pain of sacrifice is just laborious. All the buildup that points out the symbolism is reduced to the princess putting her arms out while in close up. Aang himself is a savior of a fictional world with many links to Jesus. In the finally of the second season Aang himself is killed and redirected and along the way strikes a Michelangelo influenced Jesus pose.

 Like Yue, Aang’s symbolism is boiled down to a modification of his back tattoo.
So, even spiritually the show is complex and interesting, and the movie is confusing chunky and unsatisfactory.

What is your recommendation?
This could have been M. Night Shamalon’s “Lord of the Rings,” but ended up his “Plan 9 from Outer Space.” this is a dull trip through cartoon cliff notes is not worth it on any level. Still if you are going to bring your kids to this film or the show you will want to talk about the fantasy world’s philosophy and it’s links to the our worlds philosophies, the truth and the lies.
My real recommendation… Start at M. Night’s “Wide Awake” and keep going until you get to “Lady in the Water.” Just stop before you get to “The Happening” and you will never have to bother with “The Last Airbender.”
(I’ll get back to you after I finish season three and yes I will go to the other two sequels.)

    Fireproof

    This film was not the best done, or the most moving. Several films not on this list were better films. (The Spider Man films, Inglorious B——-s, Juno, Iron Man and even  Twilight, were all better films.) Still, a church got together and made a good film with a great message, and I think that should be applauded.

    His Dark Materials Trilogy: The Golden Compass / The Subtle Knife / The Amber Spyglass by Philip Pullman

    December 15, 2009

     

    What Is It?

    This is the very popular, yet still somewhat underground book trilogy about a little girl named Lyra Belacqua. In a world that seems to be antique modern with magical properties, s he finds out that her estranged father is on some bizarre quest, thinking he knows the meaning of Dust and the locations of parallel worlds. Lyra decides she needs to intercede and take on her own quest.

    She has the aid of Pantalaimon : her dæmon. The dæmon is the creature that each person has as a personal companion. They are usually animals of the opposite gender and have a spiritual link to the owners. (Only witches can go any significant distance from there dæmon.)

    She also has the Alethiometer or the golden compass. This is a device that can tell you information about truth and what to do next. For some reason Lyra is able to use and read the device with an amazing intuition.

    Furthermore the adventure makes constant reference to the Bible and the Church which looks very similar to the same entities in our world.

    How Was It?

    This is a first class fantasy adventure. The characters are deep, well written and fascinating. The worlds are very intricate and exciting. With books like this floating around, it makes me wonder why we have time for boy wizards who look more than second rate compared to this modern fairy tale.

    This reminds me of Tolkien where it’s not that they find a monster because we needed a monster here. Instead the world is so “real” and such a true work of “sub creation” that it seems like that monster just existed and they had to deal with it the same way someone would have to deal with a fierce reptile should they fall into the water while running through the Florida E verglades.

    Is it Good for Children?

    They are long books , but they would keep their attention. There are some scary / abusive situations, but they are handled well. There will be a lot for you to talk about, especially when you ask…

    What About Spiritual Issues?

    This is a major plot point.

    One of the things that gives these stories such depth is that, to solve the mystery, to know what’s going on , is to know the way the spiritual world works. So, knowing that this is the key to the story, let’s move to the SPOILERS –

    Through their adventures they meet everyone, from the harpies that guard the afterlife , to the angels and Enoch (now head of the angels). They even meet God himself.

    What you find out is that every world has a story where there was something that a snake told them to partake in. This was the thing that would help people become everything they are. The church would then go in and teach the people that the snake was lying and the object of their fulfillment is actually a sin. So we must go with our passions. This becomes more complete when she travels to the afterlife. There everyone is stuck until Lyra convinces them to stop torturing people and lead them out to where they can become one with the universes. The creatures agree as long as people have good stories of their life to tell them in exchange for their guiding.

    When people from our world come to theirs , they find that their soul is an animal and the opposite gender. They also learn that what they had always been told was evil ( namely, dæmons) are is actually your true self guiding you.

    All of this sounds like the gospel according to Neitchze but then, how does God fit in? Turns out he’s just the oldest angel, so everyone thought he created everything. Now he’s a feeble old man being kept ceremoniously alive – what to do? Euthanasia!

    What Is Your Recommendation?

    This is wonderfully written and phenomenally entertaining. This is also a well crafted explanation of a philosophy. In a way that is understandable and lasting, we learn that we just need to do everything we feel, and anyone telling you that you shouldn’t is lying to you so they can have power over you. It also explains that the most blatant offender calls themselves the church. Those who say the serpent lied, are liers themselves.

    Thus this book series is a well crafted gun aimed at the ideals of your children. Like the idols in the book of Jeremiah, the fact that it is well crafted by skilled men should not blind us to the fact that it is evil.

    This book series may have gained the popularity the writing deserves when the first movie came out, but the movie just fizeled. It is put out by New Line Cinema and the first adds for it use “the one ring” from Lord of the Rings to try to connect the two series. These films will appeal to kids who liked the others (LotR, Narnia, Harry Potter), but they are not the same.

    The Golden Compass will provide another reiteration of a sad philosophy that can only hurt. Oddly enough, despite the humanistic philosophy (and the mercy killing of God) , I have had many Christians recommend this book as Christian Fiction. We need to take this for what it is, good literature with bad theology. If people you know are into this book, it is well worth lots of discussion. If you kids are not yet into this book, it is well worth preparing now to shield them from the forth coming advertising onslaught.

    The Golden Compass

    December 15, 2009

    What Is It?

    Philip Pullman‘s well written Neo-Nietzschean fantasy trilogy is swept up into production, as New Line Cinema hopes to find the next Lord of the Rings style film, and income.

    The series begins with Lyra, (Dakota Blue Richards) a 12 year old orphan girl living at a prestigious boarding school in a parallel universe to ours, where architecture and fashion are a mix of sci-fi and the 40’s. In this world, a person’s sole does not live in them, but stays near them in an animal form called a daemon. Lyra’s daemon can change it’s form because she is still a child and her soul has not settled, but an adult daemon is constant.

    How Was It?

    It was a well crafted story, but the presentation suffered in comparison to almost everything it begs to be compared too. This is not as good as the book. Much of the mystery is gone when an added opening monologue reveals that we are in a parallel universe, and many other things that are not explained right away in the book. The universe concept is not fully revealed until the second book. The opening Monologue is also done by a woman with a deep voice and English accent. This reveals that the links to Lord of the Rings run deeper than the ad campaign. There were a few parts where they used film short hand that was taught to us in Lord of the Rings. Instead of developing the witches they are just a race like Middle Earth’s elves. The talking animals hearken to Narnia, but not the special effects. Outside of the Bears, most animals are off screen or looking the other way when they talk. I’m sure this was because the few times we are allowed to see it, their mouths do not totally line up. The little girl at the center will also bring thoughts of Lucy of Narnia and Harmonie of Harry Potter. This comparison puts them in good with Narnia, and for all it’s faults, unlike the Potter films, this is not long and dull.

    This story was compelling and made you want to know what was next. When I read the book, the idea of a little girl riding an armored polar bear (ice bear) was thrilling to me. To see it, despite occasionally looking like a Coke commercial, was just as thrilling. The bear, voiced by Gandalf/Magneto actor Ian McKellen, is the best part of this film.

    Is it good for Kids?

    It was made for kids. The PG-13 rating is well deserved, but mature children could handle the action. There are a lot of children in peril, but the only truly disturbing shot (spoiler) is when one Armored Ice Bear slaps the others jaw off and into the camera. Still even this is done so fast, and covered so quickly, that it’s more about the disturbing idea than the visual. If they could handle Spider man 3 or Narnia, this will not be a problem. Happily, despite the posters, We do not get revealing shots of the two prominent women in the film.

    You can check Screenit.com for a break down of everything on the screen.

    The actual issue here, as with many of these films, is…

    What About Spiritual Issues?

    This movie is based on a trilogy entitled “His Dark Materials.” The name comes from a line about Satan in the book “Paradise Lost” by Milton. There are many references in the book to Milton and even quotes from him at the beginning of most chapters. This is to point out author Philip Pullman‘s opposite Thesis. Milton wrote to explain to men why they should follow the rule of God. Pullman wrote to teach children why they should not.

    All these references and more were removed when New Line Cinema required that all references to God and Religion be kept out of the movie. They thought it would alienate a great part of their audience. Unfortunately, with that cunning move, and all the hype about how anti-Christian this film is, many people will watch it and leave thinking “That was a good movie, what was the big deal.”

    The problem is that all the arguments against following God and the Church are still in the film. They have discussions about not following rules. We are taught that agency’s that say they want to teach you how to act are actually misguided megalomaniacs who want to literally cut the souls out of children. This would be like having a movie where only the evil people ate food, only the evil people were fat, and we learn that you can never be too skinny and should take any action possible to achieve that goal and then saying, “It’s OK, we took out all references to Anorexia.”

    (Spoiler) We also have a weird look at sexuality. Most of the characters and world views are paralleled, as in this example; We learn that Mrs. Coulter (Nicole Kidman) is Lyra’s mother. She was not married to the father, so it was against the rules to keep her own baby. Here we have the evil system destroying lives in the name of family values. In contrast to this, we have a witch, Serafina Pekkala (Eva Green) pointing out to Lyra that the head of the Gyptian’s had been her lover. She then explains that witches age much slower, so they were an item back when he was “young and beautiful.” (Of course, if a man had said this about a woman it would be shocking and horrible, but this way it comes off romantic.)

    What Is Your Recommendation?

    As a film, this movie is watchable and as morality, this movie is damnable. Still without the direct connections to the church made for us, the message is identical to the “rules are not for me” messages of the Harry Potter films.

    There are worse films out there, but if you, or your kids miss this one, you are not missing much. Save your $7.50 and stay home with Narnia. It has all the same fantasy elements but on a higher scale of excellence, with a message you will want to endorse.

    Top Picks from the 2008 Pile

    December 31, 2008

    Looking at all the issues – Film Making – Acting – Message – Etc. These are my 08 picks for best films of 2008

    (Check back, reviews are on the way for all of these films.)

    1. C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian 
    2. Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed
    3. Cult of Sincerity 
    4. The Day The Earth Stood Still
    5. Fireproof 
    6. Twilight *
    7. Iron Man *
    8. The Picture of Dorian Gray 

    Most of these movies were fun and entertaining with good messages. The only one here to make my list of Must See Movie Recommendations was The Picture of Dorian Gray and that movie was released in 1945 but was finally released on DVD in 2008. Since the pickings are so shallow this year, and this movie is so good, I’m deciding that the DVD release makes it eligible if only to raise the quality of this list! (I did have Kit Kittredge: An American Girl  in at one point, but I nixed it to make room for Fireproof.)

    * Twilight and Iron Man are movies I like now but am fearful that the sequels will make me regret putting them on this list.

    Give us YOUR PICKS in the COMENETS!
