In our Podcast Series Review Avenue Streetlight, we discuss and dissect a different film each episode. We go through the film in depth, discussing the plot and pivotal scenes so fair warning for SPOILERS!
On this episode, we’re talking M. Night Shyamalan’s elemental abomination The Last Airbender. Frequently featuring on many ‘Worst Films of All Time’ lists, we question whether it really is as bad as it reputation suggests, discuss M Night’s turbulent career as a whole and struggle over character pronunciations. Also, in the fourth round of our quizzing, can Oliver finally chalk up a win?
We’d love to hear your thoughts on the episode and of the film itself. You can:

The Last Airbender is currently included in the UK Amazon Prime Video subscription.
