GUEST APPEARANCE Mystery Movie Night: D-War, Last Airbender, Diary of a Wimpy Kid

My friend Michael May invited me onto a show where one host picks three films, then the others have to guess what the hidden connection is between them.

In The Last Airbender, M Night Shyamalan controversially adapts the modern classic cartoon about a war in a world where people can control the elements. In the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series (we specifically covered part 3: Dog Days, but do discuss them all) a kid goes through the comedic struggles of life as an adolescent. Check it out here.
