if you read this discussion from the beginning, you would have realized that the subject is about how the director may possibly make a terrible film. but, you think that the storyline may make this a terrible film? you obviously don't watch the series enough. yes, its about good vs. evil, but, what fantasy story isnt? i don't know too many fantasy storylines involving a war against the elements, but, the ones that do are usually fought through "magic" and it usually just shoots out of a wand. how many stories do you know, bend the elements using kung-fu?
the series just started its 3rd season, so its been a while, and it seems like the story will conclude in the next season. so i think they need to release the trilogy asap in order to make that quick buck.
if this movie becomes the way you envision it, then avatar won't be worst movie of the year, it will be the worst movie ever (especially, if rusty and sam chooses the cast)
wow guys... it's not Kung Fu... it's a lil something called Tai Chi (ever heard of it? most of you have... it's the movements used to water-bend) you can actually water bend using Tai Chi. I'm getting good!
