(Newser) – M. Night Shyamalan doesn’t worry about the critics. In fact, he says he wasn’t even aware of the brutal reviews for The Last Airbender until he gave an interview to New York magazine yesterday. “I don’t know what to say to that stuff,” Shyamalan replied after hearing some of the vitriol. “It must be a language thing, in terms of a particular accent, a storytelling accent. … I don’t know how to think in another language.”

“I think these are exactly the visions that are in my head,” he continued. “I think of it as an art form, so it’s something I approach as sort of immovable integrity.” (Read more M. Night Shyamalan stories.)
