HOLD THE PHONE HOMBRE, THE MOVIE HAS ACTUALLY CAME OUT AND THIS COMM HASN'T HAD A POST IN FOREVER MONTHS??? THIS MUST COME TO AN END, BECAUSE HAVING SEEN IT, I HAVE ONLY TWO WORDS:


I'M JUST GONNA CALL THIS A GENERAL REACTION THREAD AND/OR THINGS THAT MADE YOU ROFL.

- WHEN THE STAR WARS WANNABE PROLOGUE ROLLED OUT, SOME KID IN MY THEATER STARTED CRYING

- THE "EARTH, FIRE, WATER" SILHOUETTES OF THE VARIOUS BENDERS WAS KIND OF A NICE TOUCH (LOL THIS PROBABLY SOUNDS VAGUE AS FUCK, OR YOU'LL KNOW EXACTLY WHAT I'M TALKING ABOUT)

- I LIKE HOW APPARENTLY SHYAMELON DOESN'T BELIEVE IN CHARACTERS INTRODUCING THEMSELVES, AND KATARA SAYS AANG'S NAME IN THE VOICE OVER BEFORE HE ACTUALLY TELLS IT TO HER...WHEN THEY GET TO THE SOUTHERN AIR TEMPLE. USUALLY WHEN I MEET SOMEONE I ASK THEIR NAME, APPARENTLY THIS DID NOT OCCUR TO SENOR SHYAMELON. (SOMETHING SIMILAR HAPPENED TO YUE LATER ON, THEY WERE CALLING HER 'THE PRINCESS' AND THEN SUDDENLY 'YUE'.)

- AND IN GENERAL: OH GIRL, DAT DIALOGUE. MY WORDS, THEY FAIL ME.

- THE FIRE NATION, AND THEIR MACHINES. THEIR MACHINES

- IS IT JUST ME OR DID A LOT OF THE BACKGROUND MUSIC SEEM LIKE, INAPPROPRIATE FOR EVERY SCENE? SOMETIMES IT WAS OKAY, BUT MOSTLY IT JUST SEEMED REALLY OFF, THEMATICALLY.

- UHH SO I KNOW AT ONE POINT BACK IN THE DAY SOME CHICK WAS CAST AS SUKI, DID THEY JUST END UP CUTTING HER OUT OR...? I WAS ALL EXCITED FOR HOT KYOSHI ACTION.

- I GENUINELY LIKED A LOT OF ZUKO AND IROH'S SCENES. ALSO THEY BOTH SEEMED REALLY TRUE-TO-CHARACTER TO ME FOR THE MOST PART.

- SPEAKING OF IROH, THERE WAS ONE SCENE ABOUT MIDWAY THROUGH WHERE IT LOOKED LIKE HE WAS MEDITATING OR SOMETHING WHILE TALKING TO ZUKO, AND THEN THE CAMERA SWIVELLED AROUND AND HE WAS GETTING A FOOT MASSAGE FROM SOME LADY. CLAAAASSIC IROH.

- I ALSO ACTUALLY LIKED THE ONE SCENE THAT SOKKA AND YUE HAD TOGETHER, PRETTY CUTE. I LIKE SEYCHELLE GABRIEL IN GENERAL THOUGH, SO I COULD BE BIASED.

- ACTION SCENES: 60% SLOW-MO, 40% SWIRLY CAMERA

- I NEED GIFS OF SO MANY SHOTS. ESPECIALLY THE CRAZY CLOSE-UP ON IROH'S EYE AT ONE POINT.

- JACKSON AND NICOLA LOOK AMAZINGLY RELATED SOMEHOW, I DON'T EVEN.

- SO NICOLA PELTZ IS CLEARLY NOT LACKING IN THE GOOD LOOKS DEPARTMENT, BUT SOMEHOW SHYAMALAN WAS ABLE TO MAKE HER FEATURES LOOK REALLY BIZARRE. AM I ALONE IN THINKING THIS, YES/NO/KUMQUAT?

- THE AZULA THEY CAST SEEMED QUITE ADORABLY AZULA-ESQUE, TOO BAD WE PROBABLY WON'T BE SEEING MORE OF HER, OR IS IT.

- I DIDN'T SEE IT IN 3D, BUT I HEAR THAT ONLY A THIRD OF IT IS REALLY EVEN 3D. LATE CONVERSION PROCESS, NO SURPRISES THERE.


OKAY THAT'S ALL I GOT FOR NOW, BUT DON'T LET ME DOWN GUYS. I WANT TO HEAR YOUR THOUGHTS. I KNOW THERE WAS SOME CRAZY SHIT THAT I FORGOT ABOUT AND/OR TRIED TO BLOCK OUT OF MY MIND.

I AGREE WITH EVERYTHING YOU WROTE 200%.

BUT DAMN. I WASN'T SATISFIED WITH KATARA'S MINIMAL ROLE AND HOW RUSHED A LOT OF THE MOVIE FELT. LIKE, IT DIDN'T FEEL LIKE IT DRAGGED ON BUT THE MOVIE SEEMED TO END AS QUICKLY AS IT STARTED. >_>

OH YEAH FOR SURE, THE RUSH-EDNESS SEEMS LIKE ONE OF THE MOVIE'S BIGGEST PROBLEMS. LIKE IT HIT A LOT OF MAJOR PLOT POINTS/EVENTS FROM THE FIRST SEASON JUST FOR THE SAKE OF HITTING THEM OR SOMETHING, WITHOUT BEING COHESIVE AT ALL.

HUH, I DIDN'T EVEN THINK ABOUT HOW LITTLE SCREEN TIME KATARA HAD,(I'M NOT A BIG KATARA FAN, I GUESS) BUT DEVELOPING HER CHARACTER MORE DEFINITELY WOULD HAVE MADE IT LESS WORSE.

THERE IS NO FISH-PUNCHING. I HAVE LOST ANY INTEREST I HAD IN TORRENTING THE MOVIE. (I WAS NEVER GOING TO GIVE THEM MONEY FOR IT BECAUSE OF THE SKETCHY RACEBENDING ISSUES.)

IN BOOK 1 HE FIREBENDS THE POND TO BOIL THE FISH ALIVE. THE FISH-PUNCHING MEME APPARENTLY COMES FROM A SNEAK PREVIEW, THAT GOT CHANGED IN THE FINAL CUT TO STABBING THE FISH. (I PREFER BOILING ALIVE MYSELF - ZHAO'S TOTALLY THE KIND OF ASSHOLE THAT WOULD CHOOSE THE MOST PAINFUL WAY TO KILL THE MOON SPIRIT.)

FOUND IT STREAMING ON THE INTERBUTTS AND WAS SO BORED THAT I DIDNT CARE TO FINISH WATCHING IT.

I FEEL SORRY FOR ANYONE WHO ENDED UP PAYING FOR THIS AND HAVING THEIR EYES RAPED D:
