This movie will be remembered as the flying dream movie where I come from. Spirited Away is phenomenal! A MUST-SEE movie. The animation in the animated film is just so good. I loved the part where the producers bring you into the shower place. Or the hot bathes. They make it so real and believable that i am still in love with this place. I especially love the train tracks that were submerged underwater. I know there is a meaning for that but then im just not sure what. I would love to know what it means. It is a new idea and one that has never been used before. <well at least all the anime movies that I've seen so far.> I am pretty satisfied with the movie overall. And i recommend all to see it. I'd watch it over and over again if i could. ahahah
I wanted to see more God VS Man thing go on here. I mean ALOT more. But then over all it was an okay movie. The only thing that i though would have made it better was to make the battle scenes a little more longer. Story is great but then it needed little touch ups here and there. Disappointed that the movie was just so fast. But MAN! The creatures were great! The sisters of fate were pretty fantastic. I loved the way how they all worked together to make it just as real to us as to the characters in the movie. I seriously think that they made Hades hella! WEAK-SAUCE! Come ON! Hades is the ruler of the underworld. He should have atleast looked a little more raw. Or a little more sinister looking. The Craken was pretty cool too. Although his stay in the film was cut short after Perceus uses Medusa's head to freeze the ginormous creature that was locked up. Wishing we could have seen more destruction, but unfortunately it just had to die. Anyways, i think this movie is okay. I recommend people to watch it but not own it on DVD or Blueray. It's just not as good a plot as the original one. But then if you think otherwise, im happy for ya. thanks
This movie was pretty good. I am very excited if there was going to be Avatar 2 coming out. I'd definitely go and see it! It's worth the money. Everything about the movie was new and very exciting to watch as the movie unravels it's hidden mysteries to you. Although if the next movie could be a little bit more on how the Navi lives, it would be pretty cool to see that too. AND most of all, i think that the discovery channel should do like a commentary of the Avatar world. That would be AWESOME!!
Since I was introduced to the cartoon series a little late in the season and even though i don't have much knowledge about the cartoon, the choreography of the moves in the animated version is very unique and very similar to martial arts. It's just that the moves have been made to incorporate the bending of elements. It's just that the way Aang moves and the rest of the characters do too. It's unique in their own ways in the cartoons. I believe that the choreography for the human version of The Avatar the Last Airbender wasn't as good as the cartoon itself. The producers of the film should have concentrated on that a lot more. The bending of elements should be taken seriously. And slowly showed through out the movie from nation to nation and how Aang learns them all. Like i said, i don't know much about the first book. All i know is that this movie would have been so much better if the choreography of the human characters were a little bit better. I think the best part of the movie that made me feel like "YES! this is what the movie should focus on more." Was the part where Aang came to the place where earth benders were kept. The earth benders showed there true strength when they finally revolted and stood up for one another. I could feel the uplifting feeling inside their hearts and the CG did a fantastic job in doing so. When the earth rose over to block the fire. When the earth came in the push the enemy away. It was done beautifully. The water in the movie was excellent too. I think that the air was okay. Air is strong and vibrant in ways that humans cannot understand. Aang has to show that he has mastered air bending. It was okay in some parts, but for the most part, air bending was moderate. It just needs more whoosh and power. As for the weakest element in the movie that i though wasn't portrayed right was the fire. The fire bending wasn't as good as the rest of the elements. When the fire prince bends fire. He uses anger, and very prideful stances to show emotionally that his fire will burn you down. In the movie prince Zuko didn't do a good enough job. He needed more passion into fire bending. More emotion too would have been better. The fire flew kind of slow. As compared in the animated versions, the fire flew without grace, speed and power. The fire bending was just too slow and disappointing. The movie was truly rushed and not enough was shown to make first time watchers understand what was really going on. I would recommend people who see that the bending is a huge part of the movie to not go because the bending is only moderate. People who are more into seeing and exploring new cinematography should at least take a chance to see this film. Thanks everyone. I would like some feed back too on what you think about this.
