    14:00 That tiny rock on a string effect always makes me laugh. Its like one of those special effects from Doctor Who (the classic series) when they had the lowest budget and just put something small in the foreground to make it look big!

    The funny thing is Shyamalan wanted to pronounce their names "right", by pronouncing them in a Japanese way, but all the characters have _Chinese_ names. If he wanted to do it accurately, Aang would be "Ay-awng", Sokka "Suo Ka", and Iroh "Eye-loh", etc.
    But then, this is the same guy who said Toph would definitely be 'Asian' (you know India counts right), and that Korean extras in the film should wear kimonos.

    That moment when you realize that NC's satirical portrayal of Shyamalon is a more intimidating villain than every "antagonist" in every Shyamalon film combined (and for the record, the guy from Split alone takes up 98% of that group's intimidation factor).

    Kinda surprised he didn't bring up the fact that in the movie, Firebenders need to *bring their own fire* to bend. That just seems so inefficient when they're supposed to be easily conquering these other groups that are literally surrounded by the elements they fight with

    I enjoyed this review, but an awful lot of this is undercut by accounts of executive meddling that was responsible for a lot of the questionable decisions blamed on Shyamalan here.
    But is this film still better than The Last Jedi?

    Tge fact that whenever people think of the cartoon series as uposed to the horrible movie as uposed to Tramsformers, The Ninja turtles and alvin and the chipmunks is a perfect representation of how awsome the show is.
    Also It doesn't bother me they mispronounce tge charecter names. Fans in real life mispronounce the names and there are much worse problems in the movie

    She looks adorable in her mediocre cosplay of Katara.
    That movie was absolute garbage. I watched it opening night and was very disappointed with it. Shamalan was notorious for making terrible movies, so I honestly assumed this one would be terrible, but I had hopes it would not suck. Legend of Korra was actually pretty good, but it was not a masterpiece like Avatar the Last Airbender was. One critique of NC's review is his explanation as to why Aang ran away: Aang did not really run away from the pressure of being the avatar. In a sense he did, but it was kind of a vague description of what really happened. Aang ran away, because the air nomads were going to take him away from Monk Gyatso for training. Monk Gyatso was essentially his adopted father, so naturally he was devastated. He did not know what to do, so he panicked and ran away, likely because he planned to return and visit Gyatso in secret.

    U can’t sum up an entire show in one movie, it makes no sense, it’s the same with the dragon ball movie. Dragon ball consists of 1000 episodes, how u gonna fit even 1% of that in the film. People need to make live action remakes on shows that would actually work. Like Detective Pikachu, it understands the world and does it right and it doesn’t have the characters from the show because they know they get talked shit about it, therefore the stories different but the lure is the same.

    • mattronimus
      mattronimus 17 days ago

      Their names, their architecture, their strong sense of honor, the way the fire nation is somewhat shaped like Japan, the way their skin is somewhat lighter than the other people... If you Google it I believe the creators even said they were representative of Japanese people... And honestly I thought this was the consensus amongst fans you're the only person I've ever heard say anything different... Not trying to hate just Google it.

    My review of this movie.
    Good things: The score was pretty good and the CGI wasn’t that bad.
    Bad things: *clears throat* the acting, the casting, the cinematography, the adapting of the show *prattles on into eternity*
    Huh, looks like that’s a me lost. Good thing I have several dozen clones of myself as backup. My point is, besides from the two good points, even then they weren’t “good”, this movie is horrible, malo, schlecht.

    I know many ppl hate it! But I feel the 7 guys and a small rock scene actually make a lot of sense. It explains more about the story than all the expositions combined.
    At first you would be like “why are all the earth benders kept in a prison surrounded by rocks? It doesn’t make sense.” But then you see the 7 guys and a small rock lion dance scene, you would be like “ ah!!! This is why!!!!” It doesn’t matter if they are surrounded by their natural elements or not, they are just too incompetent. If it takes that many ppl and all those time and a weird dance to move a small piece of rock, then they are not posing any threat to anyone really. I mean what happen if the fire benders dodged that rock? Do they have to do another dance to lift another rock?

    I don’t think that the last airbender could be made into a good mood trilogy. One of the things that made the show great was that it was an episodic series. Each episode had its own contained story. If you try to turn it into a movie you would have to cut out all but the bare necessities which means you would be taking out all the great stuff in the show. However, shamalan didn’t even try
