avatar: the last air bender

so i’m LATE on this one, but when this movie came out a LOT of people were hating on it; like it was the dumbest ish they’d ever seen. but i just watched it on netflix…and maybe it’s because i didn’t go into it with any expectations…but i actually kind of liked it. it may also be because i never watched the cartoon that much either, but the whole philosophy of balance between the elements and harmony resounded very well with me i guess at this point in my life. obviously m. night shymalan had nothing to do with the actual story, but rather it’s portrayal. but i still enjoyed it. i especially loved how beautiful the movements were when they were bending. but again that could be more ignorance on my part because god only knows which martial art(s) they were appropriating in that choreography.
