I tried. I really did. But the thing that bothered me the most was the pronunciation of the names.

Aang was like Ong and Sokka was like Soaka. I'm not sure if there were anymore because I don't even think I made it through a half hour, but it bugged the living crap out of me xD (also Katara was rather annoying)

Why do you think they did this? Or know why?

Also, I know a lot of people were mad about the whitewashing, which I do agree with, but I also understand it's called "the industry" for a reason. (and no it's not really a good one xD)

Well, actually they pronounced the names right. That's how the names would be pronounced in Asia.

Here's trailer of ATLA book 2 in Japanese.



The announcer pronounces Aang's name like in the movie.

Okay, but!

Let's get to the real reason (besides name pronunciations) as to why this movie was bad. It just. was.

This movie wasn't even just whitewashed; they changed basically all of the ethnics in this movie. THEN they didn't even get the martial arts or bending quick or right. I mean, for example, it took an army of "Earth Benders" to stomp like what...6-7 times or something? To SLOWLY fling a rock? -.- it made me laugh (and cry).

Basically, it was just poorly made. The quality was bad, the actors were bad, the ethnic change ups were bad (the Fire Nation were the dark ethnics instead of the Water Tribe), stupid things were changed (like only masters of Fire Bending could produce fire...I mean that's *kinda* cool, I guess? but still!)...

It was just. Yeah. It could have been better. I'd be cool with Nickelodeon doing a redo on a live action movie. Except this time, this bro that directed the movie is not allowed ANYWHERE near the redo. It should be someone that truly knows the show and what they're doing. That way we don't have a bunch of Earth Benders stomping 6-7 times to fling a rock.

And please -- a better kid as Aang. Or at least give that boy extensive acting lessons.

Yeah what everything Fire Lady said. I could careless about the names. I was angry that they rushed the story. They skipped over Suki and they briefly mentioned Haru!

The only way I've watched this movie is with the Rifftrax and it made it enjoyable. Actually, it was watching the Rifftrax'd version of this movie that really got me to finally watch the Avatar series on Netflix. xD

But yes, everything is so bad.

You know there is going to be another one? Mr. Shamalamadingdong needs to stay away from this series. xD

Yeah I think they're doing book 2. >.< I'm worried about Toph and Azula. I bet what's his name will screw their characters up! What version are you talking about, Brit?

There is a site called "Rifftrax" and they are the guys from Mystery Science Theater 3000. They make fun of current movies (and old bad movies) and they did the Avatar movie. It makes it a bit more bearable to watch since they are making fun of it the entire time. XD

That sounds like a great idea! But it looks like you have to pay for it?

I have it downloaded, I think. If we decide to do this, I'll see if I still have it.
