Legend of Korra
Episode 1 vs. Episode 7
Chekhov’s gun is a literary technique whereby an apparently irrelevant element is introduced early in the story whose significance becomes clear later in the narrative. The concept is named after Russian playwright Anton Chekhov, who mentioned several variants of the concept in letters.
One of Chekhov’s statements on this principle:
“If in the first act you have hung a pistol on the wall, then in the following one it should be fired. Otherwise don’t put it there.” From Gurlyand’s Reminiscences of A. P. Chekhov, in Teatr i iskusstvo 1904, No. 28, 11 July, p. 521.’

Aside from the fact that I loved the first two episodes, which really set the tone for what I think looks to be a damn promising awesome series, I think tumblr’s gonna get a lot of mileage out of all the faces they make.

I was freaking out when I saw this trailer. Aside from what everyone else mentioned, I should note that it’s got elements of diesel punk in there (which I have an untapped soft spot for). On top of that, they wanna put jazz in there: “What would it sound like in the 20’s if the Chinese invented Jazz?” Jazz, people. I can’t even
Movie Trailer of the Day: The final theatrical trailer for The Last Airbender — M. Night Shyamalan’s controversial live-action adaptation of the similarly-named animated television series.
The film, which stars Noah Ringer, Nicola Peltz, Jackson Rathbone, Dev Patel, Shaun Toub, and Aasif Mandvi, is scheduled for wide release July 2.
while i admit it’s not as satisfying as seeing a chock-full-o-asians direct adaptation of the film, i think it makes sense to think of this as an interpretation instead. plus, thinking of it as such helps to avoid pissing me off that that there’s virtually no asians in a asian culture-inspired film. if i just keep that out of mind when i watch it, shouldn’t be bad, though the well of asian talent in the music industry is very neglected. oh and my sister said this trailer looks mad serious. hopefully they didn’t change too much that the film alienates too much of the audience gained from the show itself. as far as it goes. yes, there’s a lot of bad ish surrounding it, including the obvious lack of asian actors and actresses, but goddengit, i’ll just go and enjoy this movie when it comes out.
