lots of character development. I don't really care terribly about the plot, but all the charactors were awesome. Azula, is really really interesting and zuko's really great. mai and ty lee is cool too, and the gaang... is nice, I guess.
Loved it. When it boils down to brass tax, it's a ridiculously funded movie made by a director known for ridiculously funded movies... That said, the half-billion dollars thrown into this film really shows.
For me, it played out like some weird form of nostalgia in the future-tense... Like a really interesting dream that ran over the course of a night. I wouldn't say it touched me, but it definitely stirred up some emotions, and that, in my opinion, is what a great movie is supposed to do.
BTW: If you haven't seen it yet, don't, I repeat, DO NOT see it in 3d... the goggles ruin the colours and force certain parts of the frame to be payed attention to. Not the way a movie is meant to be seen, and certainly not a film like Avatar.
Well the thing is, right now I'm learning all about cinematography and composition in college right now, and for me, the eye should be allowed to wander around the frame between each cut, and the 3d basically makes it so that the eye can only comfortably look at one point per shot. It felt like it was telling me how to watch the movie, and it just tainted the experience, in my opinion.
Plus, those glasses made everything look like it had been washed in icky green. With a movie with such surreal colours like Avatar had, I didn't want anything in between my eye and the screen, I just wanted to soak them up, but the glasses got in the way.
