VIDEO: 21 Reasons Why This Movie Sucks

Hello! I've been seeing links at Angry Asian Man and a few other sites to this quick comedic discussion of the problematic casting issues of the movie "21," by Asian-American playwright/performer Prince Gomolvilas. Doesn't look like anyone's posted it here yet. He touches on "The Last Airbender" toward the end, and has a great summation of a lot of the casting issues. His blog can be found here: Bamboo Nation.
