Agreed. Sucking the personality out of a character until there's pretty much nothing left is not cool. I was very disappointed every time he opened his mouth; instead of something witty/amusing, it was just bland and poorly acted.

This is why I was pondering over which order I should have watched them in.as far as whether or not it was a good idea to watch the show before the movie, i'd have to say no, it wasn't. the movie still would've sucked, but if you've seen the show, it's a hundred times worse.
I definitely agree with you there. His daughter may have watched it all the way through, but I'm pretty sure Schyamalan didn't even make it past the opening credits. I'm most disappointed in the cast the most, however, since you would think they would have put in the time to research the characters before filming started. I mean, if you're going to play the part of a character that's based on a cartoon/comic/book, this sort of thing just seems obvious.schyamalan claims he wanted to do the movie after his daughter wanted to be katara for halloween or something. then supposedly he got into the show and he and his family would all watch it together. but i'm calling bullshit on that one. after somehow forcing myself to sit through the entire film, i'm convinced that NO ONE involved with it ever watched more than 35 seconds of the show.
I paid money for it, so of course I'm going to see it through to the end. No matter how bad the movie, I don't like wasting my money so quitting half-way through really isn't an option.so, for seeing it through to the end, sir, you have my admiration and my sympathy.
I hope he does. If he wants to do better sales-wise, then he's going to really need to start listening to the fans. They saved him the first time, but I don't think they're going to be as forgiving if he continues things as is. Personally, I hope the company decides to cancel Shyamalan's contract in favor of someone who knows what they hell they're doing.unfortunately, despite being getting nothing but terrible reviews, it did make a fair bit of money, so i'd imagine they will go ahead and make the next one. although it's budget was also enormous, so it's profit wasn't all THAT high...as far as schyamalan's involvement, if i had my say he would've already been shot in the face. but i dunno. if he does do the next one, maybe he'll take some of the criticism into consideration.
