The worst movies aren't the ones that were completely terrible from the ground up, they're the ones that were executed poorly, but if handled better could have been a truly wonderful film, amirite?

The voters have decided that MrRite is right! Vote on the post to say if you agree or disagree.

Other ones that should be awful from the word go but actually try hopelessly to be good turn out classics. Like Plan 9 From Outer Space, Anaconda or The Room. Basically anything that MST3K would like.

No. You mean "The Last Airbender". Period. The series (which is called Avatar: The Last Airbender", whilst the movie drops the prefix) WAS an excellent piece of storytelling. The movie was awful. It's what happens when some idiot (and I honestly don't know where the majority of the blame lies here) tries to shove an entire season's worth of story into one standard length film, can't decide which bits are the most important, so he just rushes through every single point that they liked from the show. NOTHING got the proper screen time or development it deserved and it forced the majority of the film to be spent on boring exposition through dialogue, seeing as there was no time to tell by showing. It was a disaster. At the very least, to tell the entire story, you'd need 6 standard length film's time, and even that's kind of condensing.

You couldn't be more right. I just prefer to refer to the series as it was called in its better times, before the movie absolutely trashed it.
