Occasional kissing bumps it up to 18

The story is solid. But there maybe religious parts people may not like. I don't like the flirting between the characters. In some episodes the characters are topless and some female characters are wearing something that's pretty much a bikini. But the flow of the story is good.

The Last Airbender (2010) - Not as BAD as people make it.

I saw this movie back in 2010 (And yes I've seen the cartoon) when I was a kid. I totally loved it, I loved how they haven't copied everything from the cartoon, M. Night Shyamalan had a unique idea and the cast seems super kind and they deserved some respect. Back in the day, this was my favorite Live Action thing because it was something I haven't experienced yet at the time and it was showcasing my favorite TV Show after Clone Wars
