The Last Airbender? Honestly, the movie is poor and I rather not watch it despite the intense CGI, not gonna lie and hate to burst your bubble, Rufftoon (One of the well known Avatar users in DA) said it right and the movie doesn't please the fans really well, here are some explanations why. I was also expecting the movie to be cool, but when the true and negative reviews came out, it kills the anticipation completely and a DVD purchase will not be worth it.

Anyway, I lol for Pinkie Pie. She crossed into another universe.
Darn, should have been more careful in choosing your title. If you say "The Last Airbender" alone, first comes to mind is the poor M. Night movie. If you put the "Avatar" in front, then it's the Nick series itself.
I don't know the artist but I'm going to take a stab and the dark and say that what they meant by liking the Last Airbender better was the cartoon. No one in their right mind likes the movie. Especially if they have seen either cartoon series. XD
In fact I go so far as to borrow from the Eragon fandom and ask "What movie?"
In reality, the cartoon arrives first and fans watch that first. M. Night was inspired by it and he decides to make it, but sadly, without proper fan consultations, everything's destroyed in that movie. The filmography is terrible as well which many Awards show that it's nominated & even won for "Worst Movie", "Worst Director", etc..
At least I'm glad I didn't watch it, same case for the "Fairly OddParents : Grow Up Timmy Turner" live action movie, despite I heard positive reviews, but like both FOP & Avatar cartoons, watching a bad live action can destroy or rape your childhood memories completely and you'll be scarred for life for it. Similar to the Smurfs in 3D too, it's a negative review especially those to long time fans like me. Another being Yogi Bear the 2010 movie. The only live action movies a lot of people accept are "Scooby Doo : The Mystery Begins" and its sequel, they've done pretty well.
