Mystery Movie Night: Dragon Wars, Last Airbender, and Dog Days

It's a big episode because we had a lot to say. David, Dave, and I are joined by pal Noel from the Masters of Carpentry podcast to discuss Hyung-rae Shim's Dragon Wars, M Night Shyamalan's The Last Airbender, and the third entry in the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series. Two of those are usually maligned, but our thoughts on them may surprise you. As will the secret connection that ties all three films together.

I thought sure this one wasn't coming what with all the westerning you've been doing Michael!

I thought about saying "hey guys I can do this one!" But decided I didn't want to watch the Last Airbender under any circumstances. Plus my planned gag of mistaking "Dog Days" for "Dog Day Afternoon" might not have registered anyway. Oh well.

Noel really knocked it out of the park this episode. I didn't think I would hear anyone give The Last Airbender a fair shake but you and Noel were quite elequent on breaking down Shyamalan's intent and shaking it up against the final execution.

I've loved Noel's podcasts ever since I heard him On Starmaggeon last year. He's the kind of guy is love to podcast with but I don't know if I could keep up with him!

It was exciting to hear that you might be on Noel's show to talk about the Wolfman movies. Hearing you talk about werewolves is worth the price of admission alone!

Speaking of werewolves, we've got one more weekend until October. I'm itching to see what you have planned for Halloween this year!

Noel is great. I always love talking with him on shows.

When do you head back home? You're back with us in November, right?

I'll be driving back home where there are no gas stations and fire houses across the street on November 5th.

Michael May said...

Woo hoo! Let's schedule you to pick movies for the December show. That way you can announce what they are at the end of the November show.

Great! I have two sets of three in mind. It's just a matter of deciding which would be best.
