Air, Water, Earth, Fire. Four nations tied by destiny when the Fire Nation launches a brutal war against the others. A century has passed with no hope in sight to change the path of this destruction.

Based on the hugely successful Nickelodeon animated TV series, the live-action feature film “The Last Airbender” is the opening chapter in Aang’s struggle to survive.

1st Annual MovieWeb Awards: Best and Worst Movies of 2010

Here at Movieweb, we have an outspoken group of individuals who make up our online community. And they contribute quite a bit to our site in terms of what films the paying public should and shouldn't see. This year, they have compiled their own personal lists to find out which five films of 2011 were the most talked about and loved last year, here on this site. They also picked through their least liked movies, and found which single title reined as the "Movieweb Movie of the Year".

Movieweb Users Moviegeek, Slysnide and Diaigma got both the top five and bottom five lists started in our User Forums, where quite a few readers chimed in on what they considered to be the best of the best, and the worst of the worst, seen on-screen in 2010.

2011 Razzie Award Winners

Voting members of The Golden Raspberry Award Foundation have sifted through the cinematic rubble of last year's Berry Worst Achievements in Film, and come up with the "winners" for The 31st Annual Razzie Awards. Results are announced in satirical ceremonies held at Hollywood's Barnsdall Gallery Theatre at 7:30pm PST on Saturday, February 26, 2011 - the now traditional Night Before the Oscars.

Not quite sweeping the ceremony, but still handily leading the pack among this year's Razzie choices is Razzie Repeat Offender M. Night Shyamalan's "re-imagining" of the faux-anime' TV series The Last Airbender into a jumbled, jump-cut mess of a movie that fans of the TV show hated even more than critics did (if that's even possible!). In addition to Worst Director and Worst Picture, The Last Airbender also "won" Worst Screenplay, a brand-new Razzie category for 2010, Worst Eye-Gouging Mis-Use of 3-D, and Worst Supporting Actor Jackson Rathbone (who had the misfortune to appear in both The Last Airbender and 2010's other most-Razzie-nominated title, The Twilight Saga: Eclipse).
