M. Night Shyamalan Finally Made A Comedy

My theory is that he's trying to lose the "twist guy" rep that leaves
ppl disappointed.  Instead, he'll be the "bad movie" guy, and then
people will be surprised again if he ever makes anything that isn't
crap.

From io9 --


You giggled at The Happening. You snorted at The
Village
. But now, for the first time ever, former indie auteur M.
Night Shyamalan has set out to make a gonzo comedy on purpose, with
The Last Airbender. Spoilers ahead!

M. Night Shyamalan has always been fascinated by playing with genre
conventions. His famed love of twist endings is really an obsession
with tweaking his audience's expectations, and his best film,
Unbreakable
, is a superhero movie that comments on the superhero
genre. It was inevitable that he would slide into full-on genre
pastiche.
