Also interesting to note that in Shyamalan's script, he has Katara saying that Aang was having trouble with waterbending (for some reason), when in the show there was a whole episode dedicated to how easily Aang got the hang of the bending forms on the scroll whereas Katara was the one having trouble. I mean jeez, Shyamalan, you really had to just retcon or change EVERY little thing didn't you? (for some reason)

Literally though. A MAJOR character development arc centers around Katara's resentment of Aang due to how quickly he masters things that even she hasn't learned after years of work. And they threw that in the garbage for... reasons. Runtime reasons maybe, but I'm not willing to give them the benefit of the doubt when it's crystal clear that they didn't understand MOST of the characterization choices in the rest of the show.

No offense, but if you watched it BEFORE you watched the series, that's the only reason you think it's passable. The entire movie is a colossal slap in the face to all the fans of the original series. It throws out SO MANY extremely essential characterization details and plot beats, for literally no reason. Shy didn't even remotely try to understand what endeared watchers to the original series, and it **showed**.

The few seconds of the opening scene where the four elements are introduced (5:48) sum up my overall thoughts on this movie - it's an imitation of a show which feels familiar to viewers, but lacks a lot of thought, depth and heart. In the original, we are introduced to the four elements with the following texts: 水善 (water, virtue) 土強 (earth, strength) 火烈 (fire, fierce) 气和 (air, harmony) I may be misinterpreting, but in this movie, I don't believe the background text in the opening serve any real meaning. It appears to be some brushstrokes thoughtlessly strung together - as if to imitate the feel of calligraphy. It loses a lot of the meaning and care, which I think is quite sad

good adaptation isn't perfect book to screen adaption of the screenplay or shots, it's understanding the emotions, themes, ideas, style, genre and main point of the original work and emulating it as best you can in a new medium. the best way to do that is to focus on the most important characters, story beats, twists, themes, dramatic moments and the emotions behind them, you'll need to cut any unnecessary characters and scenes, change any outdated and problematic elements, have everything from the design, to the dialogue to the setting match one another, and most importantly it must work as a piece of art on it's own

I'm confused. Are you agreeing with the video or no? I'm assuming you're in agreement, because only an insane person would argue that Shyamalan did a good job of understanding the emotional themes, story beats, characterization choices, etc. of the original show, much less effectively convey them in his adaptation.

A half hour into it, and I'm wondering if a good topic might be about how some stories blend humorous and series moments, how to go from funny moments to intense moments without one ruining the other. I've seen a few stories that have plenty of each (Fullmetal Alchemist, Firefly). It seems like there's more to it than "Let's be funny here, and have a real intense moment next".

speaking of how they says the characters name they actually used the asian pronounciation which sounds so wrong since most of the asian dub of the animation series used the english pronounciation for the names many of asian countries pronounce A I U E O in the same way for example we pronounce A like the A from Laugh i from Pitch U from Jumanji E from Bender, and O from Thrones so, now lets read couples of names below in that way Sokka Aang Iroh and... i still have no idea where was the "Agni Kido" comes from, cause "Agni Kai" is fit more perfectly, i have no idea what was Shyamalan trying to do but even Asian kids are confusing watching the entire movie
