I can't believe a movie I have never seen and everyone I've talked too cannot describe to me in any detail made a bunch of money. Like Avatar is this complete blind spot for my culturally where no one I know retained any information regarding it.

Seeing it get a sequel after (number) years is just as wild.

A golden helix streaked skyward from the Helvault. A thunderous explosion shattered the silver monolith and Avacyn emerged, free from her prison at last.

You didn't miss anything. I think I saw it in 3D, and the only reason I saw it at all is because it was in 3D. And I think it was because my brother got free tickets or something...

I saw it in the theater in 3D, I liked it, but didn't feel like I needed two more movies.

That one is my favorite because it was specifically from the nintendo wii port of avatar. I wanted to do a 3d rotating model like ripped from the game but it was beyond my skillset.

I can't wait for the Avatar Avatar thread to broaden into avatars of Smurfs, Navi from Ocarina of Time, the Blue Man Crew, NetNavis from Megaman Battle Network, and just ships and sailors from the navy.

At least that had way more engagement from the rest of the public consciousness while it was running.

I think that spoiler-aversions help kill these things because when there's a bad ending, everybody wants to talk about that ending, but spoiler rules mean nobody gets to talk about the ending, so it all just muffles itself entirely.

so what's up with the dome

Sometimes you gotta break the rules.


The dome is closed. To the posters who were attempting to have a good faith discussion about stereotypes, thank you very much. At this time it is going to remain closed until the sci fi wi fi team has discussed what standard for good faith discussion we are using for the thread going forward and what we're going to do with the discussion we were having up until the moment I decided to just close the thread. At this time I make no guarantees that it will be opened again and I happily invite the users of this forum to make specific topic threads about various events from within the prequels if there is something from those movies they wish to have discussed as a specific point of order. As a reminder for anyone looking to talk about the original trilogy and the sequels their respective domes remain open.

For anyone who looks back on what they wrote and might reflect that it failed to meet the standard of good faith discussion, I suggest going home and rethinking your lives.

As always thoughts are welcome both here and the sci fi wi fi feedback thread and anything posted regarding this decision in either will be given consideration by the team. I hope everyone enjoys their saturday afternoon.
