Watch Now: ‘The Last Airbender’ Trailer
  |  @   |  

By Seaberry

A new trailer has been released for The Last Airbender.

Check it out here below.

As I was watching the trailer, I saw several scenes from the first episode of the animated series. They got the clothing and the overall feel of the film exactly right, even the effects when Aang uses his power.

It was also cool to see Dev Patel from Slumdog Millionaire in action. The music and visuals give the trailer a truly epic feel. It looks as though M. Night Shyamalan and the rest of the crew “get” the story and the world that these characters inhabit. It looks like it is going to be a fun, wild ride.

Check out the trailer below courtesy of our friends at Fused Film, and let us know what your thoughts.

What do you think of the new trailer? Do you think the film will do the animated series justice?

The Decade List: The 59 Best Films Of The Past Ten Years – Chapter I
  |  @   |  

Let’s just get it out of the way right off the ol’ bat: Yes, we know it’s been a few months since we left the decade. Most folks undertook this heavy task pre-2010, but we decided that it would be a little bit better to let the new year settle in a bit before hitting you with something of this magnitude.

So here we are, geeks; we’ve officially arrived in FUTURE *cue retro ’50s sci-fi music* and still we have no freakin’ flying cars yet. What’s the deal with that? While it is pretty exciting to be a month or so into the year 2010 — a year that always seemed unreachable to us mere mortals — we are also exiting another entire decade that leaves us staring at one majorly epic task. That task? To search, dig, locate, retrieve, organize, polish, and present the very best films of the past ten years!

We must once again declare that this list is also simply opinion. You are are without doubt going to find movies here that you hate and do not think deserve to be included. You will surely think of movies that you think should not only be on here, but that should be at the very top of the list. There will even be some that I have not seen and thus, can not add. Even at this very moment, I sit, worrying and wondering if I’ve forgotten any that I would include; that’s just the way things fly when compiling something this massive.

With all of that said, we invite you in to relax and check out Chapter I of our list, The Decade List: The 59 Best Films of the Past Ten Years!
