e-e-e-s dudeinpyjamas anadiableau Okay but honestly fucking shit like this when they show Zuko’s scar side when talking about Sozin and then having the bar pass and have his non-scar side when Iroh says Roku is his great grandfather if EXACTLY the kind of shit that elevates this show to where really no other show has ever come and probably never will I mean if you frame it in a photo it looks much better in reality it was a moving shot Still nice but not amazing What really is an amzing shot is this Who is realy imprisioned here? The way this shot is framed makes it clear that Zuko is in a prison of his own mind In fact you can look at how Zuko and Iroh are generally framed in this scene Zuko and Iroh Even in shots where Iroh is framed together with the iron bars he is far removed from them while Zuko is right in front What takes the cake though is the following shot sequence When it shows Iroh it zooms in from this To this While with Zuko it’s the exact reverse It zooms out from this To this Say what you want but man Avatar had some amazing shot composition Also the reason The Last Airbender was better than Korra is because atla had Zuko and Iroh while Korra didn’t Fight me In addition to this scene being very well done the whole The Avatar and the Firelord episode is just genius It just makes the parallels between Zuko and Aang so much more powerful in retrospect They weren’t on parallel paths just because They were on parallel paths because they’re two parts of one lineage Roku’s Fire Nation lineage and his spiritual-mediator Avatar lineage And throughout the series the two of them are paired up through visual language and the show even goes as far as match-cuts between the two of them as they’re in different locations and different fights I forget where but I KNOW there’s a shot where Aang is dodging in a fight and basically running towards the viewer and it cuts straight to Zuko doing the exact same thing like they’re two enactments of one story And the twin blades? Zuko himself says they’re two halves of a single weapon and shouldn’t be thought of as separate The twin blades which we really first see in The Blue Spirit storyline in which Aang asks Zuko if they COULD HAVE BEEN FRIENDS It’s been stated that the blades represent the good and evil parts of Zuko but isn’t that just a direct result of him grappling with his lineage which is directly tied to Aang? In conclusion I am not ok and will never be ok Thanks Avatar Meme
