    Everyone is freaking out over this movie but I will laugh when it makes less than 100 million dollars. There is too much competition for this movie.

    Airbender may be better than eclipse. However, after "the happening" Im questioning if Shamalan ever directed signs, and the sixth sense. Airbender has to have a 5 star rating and A+ reviews from both critics and wannabes for me to even think about watching it on VHS.

    If you like puking go see eclipse.

    Last Airbender is going to flop so bad. This movie is going to destroy it this weekend.

    Don't care. Airbender will be the superior film, whether it wins the box office or not.
