I know that this is late but I went to see The Last Airbender which came out a little over a month ago. That was the last 3D movie that I saw (besides The Inception screening). I liked The Last Airbender graphically. I didn’t know the original cartoons so I didn’t have the disappointment that many people had. I anticipated a followup movie because of the duration of the movie so while everyone shouted vulgarities while exiting the theatre, I thought: What brilliance! What visual delight! I want more! I can’t wait to see the other!
Anyway, that was M. Night Shyamalan’s version. I went online and decided to see the cartoons when someone asked me whether it was similar to the cartoons. I can answer now: No, it wasn’t. However, I do expect movies to be different from the original of anything. That’s why they hire new writers to make it sort of the same, but not quite (Don’t get lost).
I watched the entire 3 seasons/books of Avatar: The Last Airbender. I got really addicted. I saw the final episode of season 3 yesterday after a month long obsession, much like I saw LOST and felt like I wasted my life away. However, these seasons was worth it. I do love cartoons and comic books so that helped but now I know what happens to the Firelord (Go watch/rent it yourself).
I saw all the “streamable” seasons on Netflix (you have to be logged in as a Netflix Member to see these results).
In the first book of the Avatar saga, two siblings discover a boy named Aang who’s been frozen in a block of ice. But the minute they thaw him out — and the world learns he’s the Avatar they’ve been waiting for — his destiny takes a dizzying turn. With a crop of new friends, instant celebrity status and the ruthless Fire Nation on his tail, can a 12-year-old boy stay the course on saving the world?
Can a mischievous 12-year-old boy overcome youthful and carefree ways and master his special powers over the four elements? Join unlikely Avatar Aang as he and friends Katara and Sokka leave the Northern Water Tribe and continue their journey so that Aang may master the element of Earth. In a future world torn between the elements, the Avatar is the only hope for the citizens of the warring Air, Water, Earth and Fire nations.
As the third season of this Emmy-winning animated series unfolds, Aang wakes up to two significant surprises: The first is that he’s trapped aboard an enemy ship of the Fire Nation, and the second is that he has a full head of thick, black hair. Meanwhile, as Aang’s fellow prisoners Katara, Sokka and Hakoda explain the series of events that brought them to their current circumstances, Prince Zuko journeys home to face his father.
Honestly, I don’t care if I’m judged by this. Those were pretty good shows.
