Running Dialogue #12: In Which We Discuss THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE and THE LAST AIRBENDER (Special Guests: Debbie Michaud and Besha Rodell)

     July 1, 2010

In this new episode of Running Dialogue, we discuss this week’s two big movies: The Twilight Saga: Eclipse and The Last Airbender.  For Twilight, we are joined by Creative Loafing Atlanta editors Debbit Michaud and Besha Rodell.  We talk about the new movie being the least terrible one so far, the guilty pleasure the series provides but also its sexism, and the downright creepiness of the final book in the series, Breaking Dawn.  Then Curt, Russ, and I have a discussion about M. Night Shyamalan’s wretched The Last Airbender.  Curt and I advocate for the series, but we’re all forced to wrestle with the awfulness of the film adaptation.
