Welp, the teaser trailer for Last Airbender, M. Night Shyamalan's live-action NickToon adaptation has been released, and my feelings are a bit mixed. On the one hand, I'm relieved Shyamalan appears to have avoided the camp and silliness that plagued fellow martial arts cartoon-turned-movie Dragonball. Or, in other words, at least it looks like an actual movie.
But on the other hand, I feel when there's a lead character with the power to manipulate the wind (or bend air, if you will), there has to be a cooler way to show that off than just showing him extinguishing candles. Putting out candles is the most rudimentary thing you can do with air manipulation. That's a skill only threatening to birthday cakes and romantic evenings in a bathtub with only the company of a romance novel. This is it?:
I guess he lives in a world where creating too many gentle breezes incurs the wrath of an armada.
Thanks to AsianTom for the tip, and for expressing his outrage at the lack of proper Asians.
