Stressful and exciting times; also, The Last Airbender

I’ve had lots of health issues lately, which have kept me from working as much as I would like, but there’s also plenty of exciting stuff going on. I have to spend tomorrow morning on an incredibly mind-numbing bit of work (we have to pay the bills somehow), but after that I’ll write a nice update.

For now, watch this trailer for The Last Airbender. I could never get into the animated series, which my friend Julian loved, but this trailer is awesome. The beginning doesn’t look like all that much, but that last shot… is exactly what I would have done. I’ve always wanted Shyamalan to direct an epic, and I’ve always adored the epic music of James Newton Howard, so this is a film I’m really looking forward to. Which is something rather rare these days.

    The movie is most likely going to be shit. And I didn’t find the teaser all that great. Watch the animation, and then some anime. You’re missing out on so much good stuff. Cowboy Bebop, there’s no way you’ll dislike that one, it even has a good english dub. It doesn’t have to be Haruhi, even though it’s great.

    Why? Because it’s fashionable to hate Shyamalan?

    Well, I’m sorry you can’t appreciate an impressive shot like that.

    Seeing as it makes me grind my teeth and want to rip out my eyes, I’d rather watch the Shyamalan film.
