Teen Review: 'The Last Airbender'

Wow. I can't quite figure out whether the intention of your comment was to evaluate or insult me (or both), but it's always nice to hear someone commenting on my work. So, I'll focus on that. I appreciate you taking the time it clearly took you to write all of that out and can genuinely sympathize with some of your points. My sentences definitely do tend to get long-winded and, though I try, I'll push myself to be a bit more delicate and sparing with them in the future.

As per your whole argument on the "Teen Critic" label, well, I'm not quite 19 yet and, college attendance not withstanding, this position was really the only one thrown my way. But I love watching movies and have greatly enjoyed my time here at KPBS. So, I guess I've always viewed the title as kind of an arbitrary one and thus never geared my reviews specifically for teens but rather for anyone who was interested in reading. I don't write to a particular audience, just in a way that suits me and seems accessible enough (though clearly doubt's have been raised about that). I see myself simply as a critic and don't aspire to or believe that I need to adjust the quality or character of my reviews according to some generalizations about the teenage demographic, if that's what you're suggesting.

Nevertheless, I've enjoyed reading your comments and am ecstatic to hear I'll be included on your Worst Sentences of All Time List. Also, it's Tisch not Nisch. I am not currently nor have I ever been affiliated with Nisch, but I think it'd be really great if they covered converting rough drafts into finished ones for any year!

Have a good day, sir.

Hi Michael, I agree with the very first thing you talk about! Thanks for pointing it out.
