Just look at Netflix Cowboy Bebop, they’re gonna ruin Avatar, maybe even more than Shamalamadingdong
@Lord Cthulhu, and wheel of time on Prime. Must, unfortunately, mention that woke travesty.
@Lord Cthulhu, Spoiler Alert for First Episode Cowboy Bebop!
The anime first episode has a badass latino girl that shoots her man when he loses it to the drug, Red Eye. She then commits suicide wordlessly with a million things being said, doesn't drop a tear.
The live action has a white girl that cries and speeches after her man died of injuries sustained while fighting high on Red Eye. Then she kills herself.
In the Anime, Spike beat up the guy using the Red Eye drug with Chameleon Eye Kung Fu philosophy after getting whipped once.
Shout out to my homie, Kb, who introduced me to Cowboy Bebob properly🔥
In the live action, Wing Chun - Spike needed help fighting the dude on Red Eye.
This shows how feminism through writing quality was shat on for easy money, as long as we hide the lead female body from confident, sexual attractiveness.
@Factory BOY, Shout out to my homie, KB, who introduced me to Coboy Bebop properly 🔥
@Dr Crowntwig, same with sword of shannara but I never had high expectations for stuff that looked like it belonged on CW. Love the books though.
@Factory BOY, Wing Chun? Dudes name is John Cho
@Factory BOY, you forgot to thank me for coming to your TED talk
There are only two types of people in regards to the upcoming live action ATLA show: those who are excited, and those who know anything about it.
It is going to be an absolute dumpster fire. It takes place on modern earth, and the whole elemental nation aspect has been removed. No fire nation, no air nomads, no hundred year war. Aang is an adopted schoolchild wanting to do well in school to impress his parents. Zuko is now the son of a business mogul that demands perfection. Sokka and Katara are native Americans who lost their mother in a freak supernatural accident. And all of them are only during the show developing any elemental powers and trying to figure out what it all means.
The show is only tangentially related to the original, the creators have no respect for the originals, and it’s likely they’ve never even seen the original.
The Netflix ATLA is going to do to the Shymalan movie what the Disney Star Wars sequels did to the prequels: make them look much better in comparison
@I Are Lebo, like, the first season is only good cause it mixed good story elements to a lived in fantasy world. I don't envy any person who trys to make such a world reality.
But that sounds so f@cking God damn lazy that it f@ckin motivates me to do and be better.
The only simulation it has with the show it's trying to imitate.
It's like being presented a block of soy next to a porter house.
Then calling you racist for not eating the pile of sh!t they made.
May the Lord give me strength, we need a Crusade.
@That one lurker, it’s actually much worse than that. It represents the creative bankruptcy of Hollywood and the media. They have become adverse to greenlighting original projects because the data shows that a high percentage of original films fail, while remakes and rehashes consistently draw opening crowds by preying on the fans of past IPs.
By capitalizing on guaranteed turnout, the studios have gotten into a position where they can basically short sheet the industry, cutting corners with writers, directors, editors, actors, and crew to shït out mass produced content to fill digital libraries.
They’re not incentivized to be original, or even to be all that good. It’s way cheaper to buy the rights to a decade plus old show and throw a writer’s room together for a month to make whatever crap you can throw together that fits in the social movement of the moment, and basically see what shït sticks to the wall.
Reject modernity; embrace tradition
It’s a safe assumption, given the track record of Netflix.
The thing is- I don't need it to meet my expectations. I ALREADY HAVR an amazing show. There's not really much an adapttion can offer...
Yeah, it's gonna suck. Everything Netflix touches turns to sh*t.
Oof live action? Yeah thats not a good idea for a show like avatar. Just takes to much to make it look good.
I, too, "exited" when I turned on the live action version
The live action could be good but i dont think you could ever do aang justice in live action. This series is made for cartoons it work so well animated. It would be really hard to pull off aang and even sakkas goofiness in live action
After the Legend of Whorra, why would any ALTA fans trust anything?
I have yet to meet a single person who is excited for it.
Hah. I have low expectations. I expect it will be better than M.N.S.’s movie adaptation.
Even if it is good people will still complain it didn’t follow exactly or some little thing wasn’t in it. Can’t please the internet
@troubled panda, Even if its good no fan wants it made. Its being made for greed. Avatar is not live action. It doesn't work in live action. Thats why no one wants this.
