Disappointment for the most part. I've made a better looking scar with mere costuming make up. That, and the Aang looks rather scary and unfriendly...in other words, nothing like Aang.

Well let's hope it's not final with the scar. As for Aang, I think all he needs a smile. What I'm really worried about in the movie is the plot. How does one congest a whole season into two hours? I mean...the season finale itself could be made into a movie of its own.

I love yoru icon!

I like Aang's tattoo for some reason. It would have been odd to see with a full blown "cartoony" arrow. As for Zuko's scar, yeah it's too faded--and it's only been three years.

That being said about the scar, I read in one of Shyamalan's interviews that an important goal is for him to be able to bring the Avatar world to life, and make it as "real" as he can. And in 8-10 years, most burn scars do look like that. I rather like it subtle, because it's DEV PATEL!! *Dev fangirl* XD

But yeah... not liking the Aang in this picture. Hopefully the next set of photos will have happy-Aang. And Appa!! Lol. Wonder how they're pulling that off, and if it'll look as bad as Falkor from The Neverending Story. Aang's tattoo looks like it was BeDazzled onto his head. XDDD

But that's the thing, Zuko's only had the scar for THREE YEARS not 8-10 years. And believe me, in 3 years, unless you have really good medicine, the scar isn't that faded. I would know. However, you're right about the 8-10 years, it does eventually look faded to almost invisible (only to get it replace at the same exact spot for me..grrr). So yeah...I don't know how that's going to be explained. But maybe burn scars are different.

Dev Patel really surprised me, he's a better looking Zuko than I thought he would be. I mean, I honestly thought he wouldn't look like Zuko, but yay, he kinda does. As for Aang, he just needs to smile. In other words, he's kinda okay. He's tattoo is pretty neat since it would be odd to see a real people with blue tattooes the way the cartoon did it. Although I wonder how they're going to make it glow?

People were talking about Appa...and they're doubting they'll have time to put him in it. IDK. Let's just hope it turns out better than the Neverending Story Movie version of Falkor.

Not impressed in the least...

That's so vague Kaibasgirl, can't you elaborate? How come? ^^;

Well, I mean, just look at 'Zuko', what the hell is that?! He's not supposed to have hair, he's supposed to be bald except for a ponytail. And Aang, I mean, the arrows are all wrong, and so is his outfit.
maylene_autumn: Rukiamaylene_autumn on May 31st, 2009 03:54 pm (UTC)
Can you REALLY imagine a man having Zuko's hair style in season one? I mean a real person. It didn't even make sense how fast his hair grew after he cut it considering he was kinda bald--that little patch of hair could no way cover his entire head and make it look good the way it did. M. Night says he wants things to be realistic. My only complaint about the lack of ponytail is that we can't see him cut it off later on when he turns traitor--to me that was a very important moment. As for Aang, his outfit is more flexible. Like in the X-Men movies, they got all the outfit wrong and they knew that--they explained that it wouldn't be practical. Can you imagine Jackman in yellow spandex and actually looking good? XD Not me. Maybe the outfit needed to be altered so he could move a lot. Maybe the old outfit wasn't practical.

In all honesty, I never thought Zuko looked good in S1. I always thought he looked rather ugly, especially cause he was bald. I just never got how people found him attractive at that point, yet he had fans swooning over him.

On Aang's outfit: They could've at least gotten the colors right!

Awww come on, it's like they made it blue or something. They just made it so it wouldn't be so loud compared to the rest of the things. It would be an eye sore to have a subtle background and then BAM a loud color in front of it. In the interview for Rent the Movie, theirs a scarf that was striped red and white in the broadway musical but in the movie they had to make it red and grey b'cuz red and white didn't work for them--they said it was so noticeable (the white stripes) that it was distracting.

I didn't think Zuko was cute either. I only saw him once in season one--b'cuz I got into Alta in season 2--and I thought he was an odd ball. XDD

I suppose. Still, I'm not so excited for the movie, cause one way or the other, movies tend to ruin the original storyline. Maybe when they show us how exactly they're going to encorporate bending, and how bad it sucks how convincing it is, I'll have a better opinion XD

I'm looking forward to the movie, but I'm not expecting much. In fact, I have very low standards right now for the upcoming movie, which sometimes is the way to go so you'll be surprised more easily and be a little more pleased since you're expecting it to bomb. ^_^ After all, you're right. Movies based on tv shows tend to be bad and ruin things, like Dragon Ball and the movie Dragonball Evolution. XD
