The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Those of you unfortunate enough to have spent money seeing The Last Airbender will doubtless be only too willing to blow one more dollar to send M Night Shyamalan back to film school.

That's the aim of the splendidly-named M Night School campaign, which declares: "Certainly, there must be 150,000 of us film lovers out there who are tired of his schlocky plot twists, canned dialogue, and over-commercialized image as an 'auteur.'"

It adds: "If we all donate just one dollar, we can send M Night back to NYU so he gets the help we all so desperately need."

Once the fundraising drive reaches its target, Shyamalan will be presented with a giant cheque to fund his rehabilitation into the director he once promised to be.

The current total is a tad under $500, so there's some way to go before movie fans can breathe easy.

Should the overconfident hack (and millionaire) decline the assistance, the cash will be used to establish a scholarship to send someone else to NYU; so it's a cinematic win-win, however it pans out. ®
