Domination by Sex & The City 2 and the other Avatar. Those who predicted over in the other thread (The W) seemed vindicated in their strenuous opposition to "The Last Airbender."
Now if we can only use this as legal grounds to permanently disqualify Shylaman from making any more films, and bring someone in to restart the Last Airbender series and do justice to a hexalogy. (Or hell, I'll settle for a trilogy of films that are 2 1/2, 3 hours each.)
Aang was NOT the ultra-focused savior-of-the-world type in Book 1 (or hell, even in Book 3, until the very end).
Katara was NOT the completely worthless damsel in distress.
And goddammit, Sokka WOULD NEVER THREATEN TO HIT HIS SISTER. THAT SHIT, more than anything, pissed me off, given that I have a younger sister myself.
I could also spend all the time in the world going through the horrible plot differences and the fact they can't pronounce the characters' names correctly, but I've got two hours before I go to church and I want to try there in a good mood.

As bad as SATC 2 (probably) is, it did result in my absolute favorite negative review of all time - surpassing Roger Ebert's reviews of North (rogerebert.suntimes.com) and Battlefield Earth (rogerebert.suntimes.com).
SATC2 takes everything that I hold dear as a woman and as a human—working hard, contributing to society, not being an entitled cunt like it's my job—and rapes it to death with a stiletto that costs more than my car.
That's just within the second paragraph. It's a pretty vicious beatdown.
Why I had the channel flipped to PBS to find this announcement, I'll never know. However, on Saturday, 11/25/06, PBS Channel 2 from Boston at 7 PM Eastern will be broadcasting The Electric Company's Greatest Hits and Bits.
