  1. The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “The Revelation”

    OK, Mako got a LITTLE better.

    I wasn't the hugest fan of last week's episode. Didn't hate it, but it wasn't up to the ol' ATLAverse standard, either. Let's see if the team can turn things around this time.

  2. The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “A Leaf In the Wind”

    With zero chest stabbings!

    In the second episode of The Legend of Korra we’re introduced to two more main characters, one of whom is the spiky-haired brooder Mako. I have four seasons left with this asshole?

  3. The Legend of Korra Newbie Recap: “Welcome to Republic City”

    This recap is more than "Polar Bear Dog!!!" repeated over and over again, I swear.

    Lords, ladies, and those who do not fall into the category "lord" or "lady": I have finished Avatar, I have watched the movie (I know, I know, I know. You all told me it was bad. It was bad.), and now it's time to newbie recap some Legend of Korra, starting with the pilot. But first, for the sake of full disclosure, here's what I already know about the show:

  4. The Last Airbender (AKA Satan’s Own Movie) Newbie Recap

    I don’t know if it’s completionism or masochism or what, but after finishing my newbie watch of Avatar: The Last Airbender–and before starting on The Legend of Korra–I had to watch the 2010 M. Night Shyamalan version. Or maybe it’s a justice thing. All the other Avatar fans had to go through their own spasms of disappointment when the movie came out. It didn’t seem fair that I would be able to avoid it.

  5. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “Sozin’s Comet Parts 1-4″ AKA The Series Finale

    IT'S OVER D;

    Well. There was no Cabbage Man. But I’ll deal. I’m going to have to wait until near the end of this recap to freak out about Azula. But I’ll deal. Avatar is over. But I’ll deal.

    It’s finally here, and I am so ready.

  7. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Southern Raiders”

    The second-to-last episode before ATLA‘s season finale starts out with a heaping bowlful of “OMGWTFAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH.”

  8. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Boiling Rock, Part 2″

    Zukofeels!

    Will Sokka and Zuko successfully rescue Sokka’s father? Will Zuko continue to be bad at life? Will Katara slap Sokka when she finds out she wasn’t invited on the prison rescue mission? Let’s find out!

  9. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Boiling Rock, Part 1″

    We're comin' up on the end.

    Zuko’s met up with the gaang, proven himself the most hilariously incompetent firebending master ever (until he wasn’t–love ya, Zukes), and now he gets a buddy episode with Sokka. The back half of Avatar‘s third season is the gift that keeps on giving.

  10. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Firebending Masters,” or “How Zuko Got His Groove Back”

    I started this episode thinking, oh man, Zuko’s going to be the worst Mr. Miyagi ever. Imagine my joy when he was even worse than I could have imagined. Meet Zuko, the firebending teacher who can’t even firebend.

  11. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Western Air Temple”

    We start “The Western Air Temple” with everyone walking around all sad and grumpy, because they don’t know that Zuko is chasing after them in the name of GREAT FRIENDSHIP, and everything I’ve ever wanted for this show is happening, and everything will be perfect forever and ever amen.

    For some, Valentine’s Day is a day for love, sex, ’n’ romance. For others, it’s… not.

    EVERYTHING IS HAPPENING SO MUCH.

  14. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “Nightmares And Daydreams”

    Between the ominous-sounding title and the “Previously On” featuring Zuko father/son angst, I didn’t think this episode sounded like a more chill follow-up to last week’s horrorfest at allllllllll. Oh, how glad I was to be wrong. I am 99% sure the showrunners just cooked up the plot of this ep so they’d have an excuse to make Momo and Appa swordfight.

  15. Review: Persepolis‘ Marjane Satrapi Goes to One Hell of a Dark Place With The Voices

    Hemophobics need not apply.

    The Voices is the third movie from Persepolis creator (of the graphic novel) and co-director (of the movie) Marjane Satrapi. It's also the first one that isn't semi-autobiographical, unless Satrapi is secretly a serial killer.

  17. Avatar: The Last Airbender Newbie Recap: “The Runaway”

    Ice puns cometh.

    We’re at that point midway through the season where old conflicts just keep getting recycled, and the plot kind of grinds its wheels until the next SOMETHING BIG happens. Whenever that SOMETHING BIG ends up being, because after all that hullabaloo about not taking detours in “The Painted Lady,” Sokka, Our Lord of the Schedule, has apparently completely forgotten that they’re on a time limit.

  18. 10 Female-Directed Movies to Look Forward to in 2015

    Feat. Channing Tatum with elf ears

    Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens isn't the only movie coming out in 2015. (Though it might as well be, in my heart of hearts. Moses is going to a galaxy far far away! *sob*) These 10 offerings from female directors are hitting theaters as well, and you should keep 'em on your radar. There will be a quiz later.

  20. Review: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Is the Phantom Menace Of Middle Earth

    Going by movie order, The Battle of the Five Armies is Revenge of the Sith, but if we're looking at quality, it's The Phantom Menace all the way. While not as bad as The Phantom Menace, it's still the runt of the Middle Earth family. The Faramir, if you will. Except Faramir is the greatest, and he treats women a helluva lot better than The Battle of the Five Armies does. This review contains major spoilers for how things go down in funkytown.
