Can you believe that they invented love,,,,
In the subversive masterpiece Avengers: Endgame (2019), directors Anthony and Joe Russo made the bold artistic choice to film scenes with a camera, which is why you can see things on the screen.
this is how marvel fans talk about the movies
sokka and azula have a fascinating dynamic because they are both insufferable perfectionists, due to the need they feel to be perfect carbon copies of their fathers, whom they hero-worship and believe can do no wrong. and they’re also the only person in the war who can outsmart the other, which leads to….. problems. sokka decided he wanted to die after azula sabotaged his invasion plan, and azula decided she wanted to die after sokka beat her at the boiling rock. so it’s just like. imagine them playing scrabble together. zuko walks in the room to find azula shaving her head because sokka spelled “dimethylpentane,” meanwhile sokka is calling his dealer because there wasn’t enough room left on the board to add an s that could have doubled his score. zuko’s just like what the fuck is a dimethylpentane, and sokka and azula both stare at him as if he is an idiot.
This moment is so well done. Like, look at how huge Catra’s eyes go and how her hands just latch onto Shadow Weaver’s arm. There’s a moment there where she completely freezes before the protective aggression kicks in and she pushes Shadow Weaver away, too. This like five seconds of television gave me so many feels, it was terrifying and sickening to watch even though we knew on an intellectual level (and Catra probably did too) Shadow Weaver was not attempting to hurt her in that moment. The trauma response is just so well illustrated here, and in Catra’s uneasy behavior the rest of the mission.
(Also, the way Shadow Weaver blamed Catra for that response and called it a disturbance? I was ready to punch a bitch.)
I am really glad that the show did not just abandon all the trauma storylines in the name of having a more optimistic final season - they managed to do both. Catra’s PTSD keeps showing up in all these little ways, particularly when anyone touches her from behind (even Adora). And I also really like that while Catra did have noticeable reactions to being touched that way by the extremely powerful galactic conquerer Horde Prime, her by far biggest and most panicked reaction came from being touched by her supposedly powerless former(?) abuser. Trauma has a way of overriding reason, and this was an excellent illustration of that fact.
For Netflix’s non-whitewashed live action adaptation of “Avatar: The Last Airbender”, Dante Basco should play the cabbage merchant.
Oh god that would be such a trip. I can just imagine the meta humor though.
Dante: What’s his problem?
Iron tries to give Zuko some life advice. After Iroh walks away Dantes character tells Zuko “he’s right you know”.
I see all of your points and raise you:
Dante should play the Actor Zuko from the Ember Island Players episode.
Dante should play lots of roles that are only acknowledged once after there’s been like ten
“hm that guy looks familiar, have we met him before?”

If Jet didn’t die in Lake Laogai imagine how fucking pissed he would be to find out that the new fire lord is Lee from the Jasmine Dragon. It would prove all of his convictions correct but he can’t bitch about it because what are they gonna do? Arrest the fire lord? For firebending?
