Okay so, I'm not the first to admit I'm wrong about something...maybe the ninth, or twentieth, but you are all here to witness it.
I was wrong about James Cameron's Avatar.
*pause for gasps*
Let me begin by explaining what I was actually wrong about.
You see, it all started with the same old story. Girl meets airbender, girl loves airbender, girl gets mad at famous movie director for naming his movie after the airbender show *cough* James Cameron you and your bazillions are dead to me *cough*
...you all know how it goes.
Yes, I confess. I love the real Avatar, aka the Last Airbender. Because of this love, I admit, I acted childish. I may or may not have yelled "Pick a new name you big copy cats!" everytime I saw those tall blue people on my TV.
Harsh? Yes. Don't mess with my loved ones and nobody has to get hurt.
But now, I admit--I was wrong. James Cameron's Avatar, by any name, is AMAZING. Don't get me wrong. The Last Airbender still has my heart, but I've grown. I've discovered I have the ability to love them both.
And so, I dedicate this post to my Avatars. They both possess incredible worlds that I love to lose myself in. The writing, plots, and imaginations involved are among the best I've seen.
So, in the spirit of all I've learned, I say: Be you freakishly gigantic and blue, or short, bald and tatoo-covered, you are welcome on my blog. Thank you.
P.S. I am SO excited for The Last Airbender movie coming out this summer. Thank you Hollywood! I will now return you to your regularly scheduled broadcast.
