Avatar's The Last Airbender earns Nickelodeon Razzie heat

Movies based on animated classics are typically hit-or-miss. Whether it’s a live-action remake like the Transformers series has been, or a extended continuation of the animation, like the SpongeBob movie, the results can either pay off big time, or leave fans a little upset. Last year, M. Night Shyamalan brought Nickelodeon’s unique anime, Avatar: The Last Airbender, to the big screen in a live-action recreation. The results weren’t overly pleasing to the hardcore fans of the Nicktoon, and an organization in Hollywood called the Razzie Awards took notice. The “reverse Oscars”, the Razzies are meant to acknowledge the worst in cinema, and five of which went to The Last Airbender, including Worst Picture, Worst Director, Worst Screenplay, Worst Supporting Actor, and Worst Misuse of 3D.
