Quote of the Day, Sometimes, (Metaphorical) Bullets CAN Kill It edition.

The author here has a point.

The collective internet is kind of like the little kid in AI: Artificial Intelligence. When it loves something, that love is the most passionate, powerful and awe-inspiring thing. And if you even slightly interfere with that love in any way, it will destroy you with a cold, mechanical fury.

Particularly since the author was referencing what happened when they made a live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender — No! Sit back down!  It’s OK!  It’s OK!  The franchise is dead!  It can’t hurt anybody anymore!  You can even click the link; it goes to a Blu-Ray of the real show.  The animated one.

Anyway.  See what the author meant?

…This Avatar: the Last Airbender series is so good…

…so far that I’m having trouble figuring out why it wasn’t canceled after a single season.  It’s like the writers HATE the Idiot Plot, like the idea of using visual cues to allow you to keep track of what’s going on, and think that ‘subtle’ is preferable to ‘beat you over the head’ when it comes to revealing things.

I’m pretty sure that all of the above violates union rules, or somethin.

‘Avatar – The Metacontextual Edition’

Somebody watched Avatar so that I wouldn’t have to. I mean, somebody really watched Avatar so that I wouldn’t have to.

WE ARE THEN TREATED TO LENGTHY SCENES OF JUGHEAD AND POCAHONTAS FLYING AROUND TOGETHER ON THE MOST AWESOME FLYING PET THAT YOU COULD NEVER GET ON EARTH BECAUSE EARTH SUCKS AND NEVER LETS HUMANS HAVE AWESOME ANIMALS THAT BASICALLY EXIST TO BE OUR PERSONAL EXTREME SPORTS EQUIPMENT. STUPID EARTH AND IT’S STUPID EVOLUTION.

Does it count as ‘spoilers’ when the description is likely to be better than the actual piece of art? If this was accurate, I would have been screaming “With this level of biotech, why did the military even let him stay crippled in the first place?!?” about five minutes into the film.

PS: Whether Kipling would be proud is another story. I suspect that the author of The Supplication of Kerr Cross may have had a more nuanced opinion than many would expect.
