New Avatar TV Series coming in 2011!

Recommended Posts

Avatar: The Legend of Korra

Quote:

The Legend of Korra takes place 70 years after the events of Avatar: The Last Airbender and follows the adventures of the Avatar after Aang – a passionate, rebellious, and fearless teenaged girl from the Southern Water Tribe named Korra. With three of the four elements under her belt (Earth, Water, and Fire), Korra seeks to master the final element, Air. Her quest leads her to the epicenter of the modern “Avatar” world, Republic City – a metropolis that is fueled by steampunk technology. It is a virtual melting pot where benders and non-benders from all nations live and thrive. However, Korra discovers that Republic City is plagued by crime as well as a growing anti-bending revolution that threatens to rip it apart. Under the tutelage of Aang’s son, Tenzin, Korra begins her airbending training while dealing with the dangers at large.

Avatar + Steampunk = Hells yes!

I just hope that they don't destroy the series. This could end up very, very good, or very, very bad...

I'm hoping for the good one.

Well, from further reading it seems as if it's being created by the same people... so it should be just as good.

And, just as with the original 3 Star Wars... you can 'forget' about them all you want, but they're still there.

Highlander 2

You might try and forget but it's burned into your brain and won't ever completely be suppressed!

Nonsense.

I have The Matrix on my shelf. It's one of the better sci-fi action movie ever made. Happily, no sequels were ever made, which is unusual given the movie's success. I'm sure they would have sucked though.

Similarly, I have the DVD collection of Heroes. Some say it should have gone on after the first season, but I know why they cancelled it...the show's premise would have run out of steam, and the writers might have resorted to cheap chicanery to try to keep the characters interesting. I'm happy they stopped while they were ahead.

Exactly Max.

I mean, can you imagine if somebody other than James Cameron tried to make a Terminator movie?

Or what about if Paramount had tried to do more Star Trek after Deep Space 9?

... and we're all glad that Fox hasn't made a 3rd X-men movie!

It sounds like they're going with an Exltedesque sort of theme. Elemental powers in a city that has a 'steampunkish' feel to it and technology that will not doubt be powered from the power of the benders.

I guess we'll see.

That's a reasonable extrapolation Dave, a lot of the smaller mechanized technology we saw in the first series was "bender powered"; monorails where benders were the engines, hot air balloons heated by fire benders directly, water vessels using water benders to power them, etc.

I don't think I could take enough drugs to make me forget some of the sequels/prequels.

Spider-man 2 was barely a sequel. Don't get me wrong, I am the first mother fucker to back anything Spider-man, and I was so heartbroken with the third movie that I cannot forget it. But Spider-man 2 is barely a sequel, and you know why?

It's the same movie as Spider-man, with different characters (and by that, I mean Doc Oc). Every single one of the plot twists and plot turns are evenly laid out on the same plot tracks which different locomotives run down.

Now, as for The Legend of Korra, this IS going to be awesome. And for the record, saying 'This is going to be good or it won't be good' is a pretty ridiculous statement. Not harpin' on ya, I'm just sayin'.

Third Spiderman?

You confuse me, sir. I'd heard rumors there might be one, but it was never made due to excessive problems with the script.

Hee. You guys and your good-natured ribbing.

I wish they'd make some new Transformers movies. With all the awesome advances you'd think they'd jump at the chance to make something as epic as the old 1987 one......

And then there are sequels which are so bad, they have a certain unholy quality that cannot be denied. I refer you to Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. Man, that movie was like a porno, with terrible fighting sequences instead of sex.

HEH smirk

Well you guys all have to remember that all of those sequels took place (read: Were made) years after the first one so there was more than enough time for people like Lucas (Starwars) and Senor Spielbergo (Indiana J) to mess them up due to memory loss, with Hollywood having enough time to do Their particular form of damage (Alien3) rounding out the hazard pay.

The creators Michael Dante DiMartino and Bryan Konietzko managed to make a series perfect (not one bad episode) for years, that's unheard of in TV & Movie history and they had some great voice talents working for them (Mako you are missed... I cryed when I heard he died... And I NEVER cry)!

Now they're going steampunk and it looks great from the photos. So no, the formula to make 'Great' into 'Crap' is simply not there for once.

•Not enough time has past (not even a full year before they started working on this new show)

•No change in Artist, producer, Writers...

•Best of all, No bloody screen writers walkouts are schedualed so as to muck things up again... (Now lets see, how many Movies & TV shows got dumped due to that walk out?).

Matrix-1 I saw it coming. Face it, the W-Bros made an Okay movie but it was so ripped from OTHER shows, media, anime, cartoons, Novels, and comic books that you felt like those guys were just making movies on barrowed time. they just wanted to make a story that was good enough so as to excuse excesive fight sceens and soon they'd have to make techno bable to give the story an intellectual feel so as to make up for lack of depth... then two and Three came out and, whatcha know.

Superman II was good ONLY cuz Hollywood did something rare by todays standards, they stepped in and cut Loose Donner and Still managed to get a director good enough to make the movie still sing. Frankly who knows what a mess (or better film) it could have been, but for ONCE hollywood didn't utterly ruin a movie.

S3 Sucked a little but Richard Pryor and Reeves helped to keep it from dying too very baddly.

S4 was super PC crap!!! Horrid speacial effects, cheezy story, Catering to the PC crowed... Poor acting.

-T2 was an AWESOME peice of crap... I loved it even though it smelled BIGTIME of the PC lib movement of the 90's. It went against the Entire grain of the first movie, but did-so So very well that I was blown away by its "yes, Yes, YES"-factor that I could let its innate ret-conning of the first movies feel get ingnored.

-T3 was great as far as coolness but the choice in actors was just bad. I don't care How baddly Furlog was doing in Hollywoods eyes when they let Lohan keep acting then they have no excuse to not have him repirse the role. Just plain bad acting but great everything else.

-T4 was good but ended illogically by trying too hard to make it tie in with the prior three when it was all about how the future was going in another direction.

it started one way and ended the opposet, which didn't Seem forced, it just plain Was forced. Audiances hate that kinda thing as it tends to derail you viewing fun.

Indi I rocked

Indi 2 Sucked

Indi 3 rocked

Indi 4 Sucked...

Formula:

If Harrison and Speilberg are still alive in the future, and the NWO hasn't come to power (or they have but have yet to destroy the world at that time)... then Indi 5 should then rock!

Alien was scary as sht... I spent 15 years having nightterrors over that movie that were soooo bad that NO MOVIE is scary to me anymore, as my nightmares out shine them all by factors of X100.

Aliens on the other hand ROX'T so hard that I couldn't stand it I loved it that much (at the time anywho).

Aliens III Is classed as both the Worst movie ever made and ALSO the saddest movie of all times since it's back history as Why it sux so very bad had EVERYTHING to do with Hollywood fn it up and swing through director after director after director, and writer/producer went the same way. EACH story was good, great, or passable, but after hollywood gutted it, it was horrid and is the FIRST Alien movie I ever went to the theater and watched. It is Also the first one I ever laughed at And the reason that i'm no longer suffering from night terrors cuz... It was so "Just that Bad"!

Aliens IV was a little better in some ways but was rancid in other was... Anexample that Just because a director is French, does Not mean he is good. Jean-Pierre Jeunetwas just plain bad. I found it odd that someone [Critic-Tom Meek] bashed the movie NOT for the director (Who DID in fact do some crazy interesting stuff, but still sucked the remaining 90% of the movie) but rather he went after Joss Whedons' script writting as the case... even though it wasn't his script that was the problem but rather his solution to the problems of hollywood constantly telling him "We liked what you did allot but, we've desided to ruin this film so, work with us now!"... They wanted Ripley/Weaver back and even though she thought they're ideas Sucked, Joss made it actually work and is where much of that movie gets it's 'Good' from.

So as you can all see... Hollywood thinks "A sequal= Mo-Money for our uncreative tooshies" and that "If the film is foreign then Siskle & Ebert will like it. And if foreign is what they call good, it Must be. So what we need is foreign french movie Directors and that will make our movies better". And lastly, "if the screen play writer is a Nerd off of the internet then he/she Must be good cuz those C.O.M.P.U.T.O.R. thinggys are made by nerds and they're now popular".

Hollywood is drunk with power, the power they earned through smarts! After a while they get lazy untill ticket goers say enough and HWood has to sober up and do good again...

then the cycle is complete... And starts all over.

Point is... ATLAB is not being run by hollywood, it's being run by Nick, who seems to not drink as much since kids are present... And that makes them smart.
