The world is divided into four kingdoms, each represented by the element they harness, and peace has lasted throughout the realms of Water, Air, Earth, and Fire under the supervision of the Avatar, a link to the spirit world and the only being capable of mastering the use of all four elements. When young Avatar Aang disappears, the Fire Nation launches an attack to eradicate all members of the Air Nomads to prevent interference in their future plans for world domination. 100 years pass and current Fire Lord Ozai continues to conquer and imprison anyone with elemental "bending" abilities in the Earth and Water Kingdoms, while siblings Katara and Sokka from a Southern Water Tribe find a mysterious boy trapped beneath the ice outside their village. Upon rescuing him, he reveals himself to be Aang, Avatar and last of the Air Nomads. Swearing to protect the Avatar, Katara and Sokka journey with him to the Northern Water Kingdom in his quest to master "Waterbending" and eventually fulfill his destiny of once again restoring peace to the world. But as they inch nearer to their goal, the group must evade Prince Zuko, the exiled son of Lord Ozai, Commander Zhao, the Fire Nation's military leader, and the tyrannical onslaught of the evil Fire Lord himself.

Darius jan, remember when you wanted to quit films?

by Niki Tehranchi on

I want to quit Shyamalan films.  Seriously, I have never EVER walked out of a movie theater and his Lady in the Water finally made me do it.  This is sad because Unbreakable is in my top favorite films of all time.  Really amazing.  I've been toying with the idea of writing a blog about him and his spectacular decline, his shocking narcisissm and arrogance, and his complete wilful blindness but he has been the fodder of so many hate blogs recently that I thought it would just be redundant.  I have not seen the last airbender and honestly, I don't plan to, unless it comes to my TV sometime.
