The Last Airbender

After spending the morning cycling, we went to see the Last Airbender in 3D. Although the special effects are ok and the dialogue seemed to have been written by a computer locked in a room with George Lucas, trying to fail its Turing test, it was still quite enjoyable.

But only because people kept mentioning "benders", as if that was an acceptable, quasi-mystical way of referring to people capable of revivifying injured carp and manipulating clods of earth/puddles of water/puffs of air/fire, rather than a 1980s playground insult aimed at homosexuals.

Or a sausage-in-a-bun disaster from the late and probably unlamented Wimpy burger chain.

I wonder if that alone will make it the favourite film of "they only want to talk about the gays" Yoweri Museveni...
