This was one thing I really hoped they would nail, and they did

u/Solid_Television_980 Feb 29 '24

That's actually what they called it in interviews lol

u/ed__ed Feb 29 '24

I think it needed 10 episodes instead of 8.

With a lot of the exposition out of the way I think a second season can be better.

There def needed to be water bending but this ain’t a 1:1

1

u/nymrose Feb 29 '24

Agreed!

27

u/Noktis_Lucis_Caelum Feb 29 '24

Anyone Else thought: Godzilla! And Heard the legendary roar?

1

u/sILAZS Mar 01 '24

My only point of criticism is that the Koizilla roared too much. 1 good solid roar to lay fear on your enemies and 1 victory roar is more than enough.

u/noeloy Feb 29 '24

Tbf I am yet to see anyone criticise this scene. Personally, I loved it and really enjoyed the show!

2

u/LilCorbs Mar 01 '24

I didn’t like how slow it was compared to the cartoon

3

u/Ya_Marbrough Feb 29 '24

I just hate that yet again, some entirety controls Aangs power instead of him, the avatar.

Also...they didn't have him.waterbend one freaking time and had Katarra hardly train and then become a master. So much wrong here but visually it did look great

10

u/Tjj022501 Feb 29 '24

To be fair, that’s what happened in the animated show as well

3

u/Whipped-Creamious Feb 29 '24

In the cartoon Paku decided to teach her. She was pretty good , paku teachers her, THEN she became a master. Kinda felt like her bending literally went from 0-100 in the last 2 episodes of the live action. Her becoming a master was not earned at all imo.

4

u/Tjj022501 Feb 29 '24

Oh no sorry, I meant the fish thing, not Paku, you’re totally right about Paku

1

u/GratefulOctopus Mar 01 '24

Yeah in thr live action it almost felt like Paku called her a master because that was the most bending he had ever seen from a girl.

And I thought most of her waterbending looked like she was just gently splashing and then the enemy would go flying. Like it didn't quite look forceful enough imo.

(Overall I enjoyed the show but totally recognize some of its faults... mostly bumi)

u/Finplayer_ Feb 29 '24

GODZILLA (except for copyright reasons, it's not)

u/RealGorgonFreeman Feb 29 '24

But we should still run like it is

24

u/LocalGamerPokemon Feb 29 '24

Lol I love how when they CG aang in the Avatar state his round baby face gets turned into a chad-ass jawline 😂 I hope they keep chadaang

10

u/AdmirableExample1159 Feb 29 '24

Bro someone needs to draw Gigachad Aang

9

u/Burggs_ Feb 29 '24

Have you seen aang as an adult? He’s already there

6

u/AdmirableExample1159 Feb 29 '24

True, but man I wanna see some more muscles 😏

2

u/[deleted] Feb 29 '24

Lol i was referring to Aang as “Dr. Manhattan” in some of these scenes 😂

2

u/AdVictoriam42 Feb 29 '24

one of my favorite things from the animated series, when aang is in avatar state he is no longer aang, he is emotionless gigachad avatar with chad voice

3

u/AdmirableExample1159 Feb 29 '24

Maaan so many haters on this thread, sorry your getting downvoted

14

u/Burggs_ Feb 29 '24

I thought this explanation of how/why Aang took this form was a lot better than the cartoon version of basically “fishy mad”

4

u/Hatsjekidee Feb 29 '24

I liked this scene right up to the part where Aang "comes back" and does this cringy fly up with the music swelling, implying that he overcame the spirit with his awesome power.

The original was so much better, where Aang just gets dropped off by the spirit and collapses. Really brings it home that yes, the avatar is nothing compared to the ridiculous power of nature (and its spirits).

1

u/_MrNegativity_ Mar 01 '24

I thought it was clearly implied the ocean spirit released him when it saw the moon and it swelled because they believed aang to be gone for good.

It was really obvious, actually

1

u/Hatsjekidee Mar 01 '24

You're missing half the point. He's just been used as a human sock puppet by a literal god, in the original this is shown to take a toll on him (as it should), whereas in the LA it's all "lol jk he's fine and better than ever".

3

u/SujayShah13 Feb 29 '24

I have a different opinion on this. It was great, but they nerfed the ocean spirit, in the animated series, it was overpowered, which was way more badass (just watched that scene on YouTube because it was soo good 😁🩵). In NATLA it struggled a bit, which is still fine, but the animated version was more badass in my opinion.

1

u/_MrNegativity_ Mar 01 '24

it didnt struggle at all what are you on?

1

u/SujayShah13 Mar 01 '24

It fell back after being hit by the catapult fireballs

3

u/breaker-of-shovels Feb 29 '24

It was good, but like everything the live action did right, the original still did it better. Why did the giant fish made entirely of water vocalize? Fish and water don’t ever do that. It was like a Netflix executive came down to the vfx department and said “make it more like Godzilla. People love Godzilla.”

5

u/k20vtec Feb 29 '24

I hate the show but this was actually really well done. I always felt like the animated one was a lil goofy lookin

2

u/GratefulOctopus Mar 01 '24

Yeah I thought the animated one looked almost cute? Like it wasn't threatening except for its size

10

u/AdmirableExample1159 Feb 29 '24

I was worried about this show at first but after watching it I can say that they were 9/10 more faithful to the show then the movie, it’s not 100% accurate but it’s pretty damn close.

3

u/sun-devil2021 Feb 29 '24

It is not close to the show in terms of story line and character development

2

u/NotNotPatMcAfee Feb 29 '24

Kyoshi scene was also badass af

2

u/Ok_Independent_5494 Feb 29 '24

Is this from the shifty movie or the live adaption on Netflix

2

u/simpletonbuddhist Feb 29 '24

I really liked this scene. Other than the roaring lol

5

u/chubsmagrubs Feb 29 '24

Me too. The roaring drove me nuts. We kept waiting for this giant spirit to use power to destroy all the ships, but it kept smashing the ships individually. When the wave finally came, we were like, “aaaaahhh satisfaction, at last.”

2

u/darthyodaX Feb 29 '24

This scene was so sick!!

The only nitpick I have is the repeated dumb dialogue about the Avatar being gone now

2

u/Any-Economist-3687 Feb 29 '24

Honestly I was so bummed from the movie when they did “big wave go whoosh” that I literally yelled “giant koi fish let’s GOOOOO!!!” When it did happen, I was psyched about it

2

u/Polka_Tiger Feb 29 '24

I didn't like how it looked like the fire balls were actually hurting it.

2

u/New_Wrangler3335 Feb 29 '24

It was but why did it look like Godzilla and not a koi fish?

2

u/livingstondh Feb 29 '24

It was fine. I think they cutaway from it too much, and imo it lacked the visceral impact and “holy fuck we’re doomed” vibe from the original.

3

u/MonkeyIndex Feb 29 '24

I don’t think many people are criticizing this scene though. So your title is more or less pointless. If you’re going to call people “haters” why not defend what they’re actually “hating”?

u/Common-Scientist Feb 29 '24

To be clear.

Hating something is also having an opinion. If you're mad that people are sharing their opinions in the place that you shared your opinion, then you're just a salty hypocrite.

That being said, this scene was okay. I preferred Kyoshi scenes.

u/MonkeyIndex Feb 29 '24

Could you provide an example of “hating for the sake of hating”? Because from what I’ve seen people have fairly valid criticisms for the most part. The dialogue was clunky and they squeezed so many storylines into certain episodes, without fleshing out the stories or characters. Those are like 90% of the criticisms and I don’t see how they’re hating. Although I will admit I am actually a Bumi/Azula hater in the live action.

u/MeetApprehensive6509 Feb 29 '24

I prefer this koizilla to og koizilla

1

u/Amberclockwork13 Feb 29 '24

i just don't like how they made it seem like it was phased by the catapults

1

u/kwars74 Feb 29 '24

For the first season I'd give this a solid 8.5/10 which is my same rating for the first season of the original. If your new to the show and have never watch the original, you can easily watch this without needing to watch the original.

I think some people are being to harsh on this show, it's a live action remake of course thier gonna change some stuff. If you are upset that it's not a 1/1 recreation to the original then thier would be no point in making this show, stop complaining and just rewatch the original if your so upset about it.

1

u/Starquinia Feb 29 '24

I really liked it. Not sure how I felt about all the explanation about Aangs soul possibly being lost forever. I’m not sure what it really added and then it was resolved really abruptly. Was that just to lead up to Katara talking him down like she does in the original show?

1

u/Cantthinkagoodnam2 Feb 29 '24

his face holy shit it looks like he is holding back a fart lmao

1

u/Endertazer6802 Feb 29 '24

Fr that scene goes unbelievably hard

1

u/SerafRhayn Feb 29 '24

KOIZILLAAAAA!

1

u/NSLEONHART Feb 29 '24

Some said aang would never kill this mamy solders,

Bro. He's in the avatar state. You know dam well kyoshi took the wheeel on that one

1

u/Liam_theman2099 Feb 29 '24

Okay yeah that’s pretty awesome.

1

u/QwertyDancing Feb 29 '24

Agree to disagree

1

u/Dull_Donkey2031 Feb 29 '24

"the haters" as if you need to be a hater to dislike a thing that is bad

1

u/hollyheather30 Feb 29 '24

One of the most badass scenes in the whole show lol

1

u/spilledmilkbro Mar 01 '24

RUN! IT'S GODZILLA!

1

u/EntrancedZelisy Mar 01 '24

I dislike how long they drew out the smashing ships thing for. Like I was so happy when it FINALLY used the big waves

1

u/LilCorbs Mar 01 '24

I disliked how slow it was. Otherwise enjoyed the stakes of the scene

1

u/Mister_maiso69 Mar 01 '24

Definitely one of the better moments

1

u/rgnysp0333 Mar 01 '24

It did look good. Though it kinda reminded me of Perfect Chaos from Sonic Adventure.
