Eirik: farkeruk: Flint Ironstag: Avatar 2 is going to fail. It'll take money, but nowhere near what the first took. The Avatar sequels will be like the Matrix sequels, people will be saying they shouldn't have bothered.

This is James Cameron we're talking about. He turned down T3 because he couldn't see a story worth telling. His record is pretty phenomenal, from The Terminator to now, both critically and financially. He's also directed two of the best sequels ever.

He's going to have to come up with a good reason why the humans depicted in the movie, who had no qualms against using modern armor, infantry and air units against aliens who could fight back with bows and arrows, don't simply come back and drop a few rocks on them from orbit.


They could just put in a line about the Unobtanium is unstable and would be damaged by aerial attacks or nukes, something like that. Or make it political, like the way the USAF was never allowed to bomb Vietnam the way they wanted because of orders from the White House.

There's a trap that innovators fall into with their follow up project. Was it a hit because it was different, so they need to be even more different? Or was it good and so more of the same will do?
Cameron innovated the 3D (more or less) and the motion capture. Will Avatar 2 be the same? Or will he feel the need to innovate yet again and be different for the sake of being different?
Some viewers will see the first and say "This is not the same as the first one! It's rubbish!" and others will see the second and say "It's just like the first one! There's nothing new at all!"

It'll take money, probably a lot. But it won't be anywhere close to the first in box office. Which considering how much it will cost to make, and he's making 2 and 3 together, it will be considered a flop.

Jesus. Reading through that list is like trying to pick through a ton of dog shiat to find a couple of industrial-grade diamonds.

Mugato: bborchar: I thought King Kong was way too long

It took them like an hour just to get to the farking island. And Kong wouldn't farking die! He'd climb the building. Looks at the girl. Get shot. Fall a couple floors. Climb back up. Look at the girl. Get shot. Fall a ________


I thought 90% of that movie sucked ass. Shame on Peter Jackson for allowing the Brontosaurus stampede/I'm running on blocks that are falling off a cliff scene

I actually got so bored halfway through that movie that I got up and took a 15 minute break out in the lobby halfway through. I don't even remember that much of it anymore...I guess I've tried to cleanse it from my mind (or it really was just that boring).

yves0010: There are several movies on that list I actually am hoping to see come true as well as others I know are coming out. Like Bond, the Superhero movies, xXx 3, Star Trek and Star Wars Ep 7. But there are several listed that I want to see made and know I am one of the few that want to see sequels to these.

Alice In Wonderland 2
Blade Runner 2
Bourne 5
Cloverfield 2
Indiana Jones 5 (Minus that annoying monkey swinging Ricky in the 4th movie)
Jurassic Park 4 (I want a movie with dinosaurs eating people)
Mad Max: Fury Road
Pacific Rim 2 (Giant Robots for the Win!)
Prometheus 2 (Huge fan of the Alien-verse)
Riddick (About damn time this one is being made)
Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
TRON 3
World War Z 2 (if the first one is done right, we can have an episodic movie series with different characters telling their tales)
Zombieland 2 (Movie or TV series... give me more zombie kills of the week!)


"...one of the few that want to see..." Do you know what those words mean when you arrange them in that order? Few? LOL!

Tyrone Slothrop: /Dead Alive is the best non-serious movie.


"I kick ass for the Lord!"

That's why I qualified it with his LOTR movies forward. In fact, I should revisit The Frighteners.

Lack of editing ability aside, it seemed as though he had an A-team and a C-team for the visuals. The close-ups of Kong's face were superb. Then there were dinosaurs running around that would have gotten the interns working on the original Jurassic Park fired.

Considering that there were 111 listed. Yes, that is a few. But Technicalities aside. It was one of those "Don't shop at a supermarket hungry" moments. Only thought of a few but kept adding more and more.

is it naive to think the actors and actresses will one day stand up and say "you know what, the world does not need this" or are they just that afraid of a day job? coke habit? help me understand.

Super excited for Pacific Rim. That movie is going to be great.

Not so excited about World War Z. Instead of using, oh, I dunno, any one of the stories from the book (or maybe Todd Wainio's narrative with other stories spliced in) we get fast zombies and Brad Pitt playing family man hero.

thecpt: Mr. Cat Poop: Monsters was a great setup with absolutely no delivery and an ending stolen directly from an episode of ST:TNG.

Way too slow and the relationship/revelation didn't feel genuine. Plus it had an awful misleading trailer.


Weird thing is that the couple is married IRL. I liked the movie -- not sure I see the need for a sequel, though.

Out of curiosity, did you see it in the theater or at home? What the movie did with the ending / beginning was really kind of unfair. Because you don't really get what the "ending" to the movie is until you've gone back and rewatched the beginning, possibly more than once.

I saw it at home. I loved the beginning, and the part where they are stuck in the trucks was great, but I just didn't think they had a solid finish, and when I saw the love-bird tentacle holding aliens from Star Trek I wanted to throw a brick at my tv.

That's what people were saying about "Avatar" way way before it was ever released. It was mired in post-production, over budget, and Cemeron had just made Titanic...you know, the movie that had made more than any movie ever before it. They said Avatar was sure to be a disappointment.

I wouldn't write Cameron off, If I were you.

That was originally what had been pitched (which is why "The Zombie Kill of the Week" was in there; it was literally going to be one every week, performed by the main characters). What started as the script for a TV pilot was stretched out and heavily revised to become a film, and since there were plenty of ideas floating around for the show, I'm sure they have plenty of options for sequel ideas. We're also probably going to get to hear the rest of Columbus' "rules" for survival.

I know it was originally going to be a TV series and I was excited to hear that it might become a TV series again. I really enjoyed the movie and I think a good horror comedy (Yes, there were parts that scared me (Farking Zombie Clown!!!!)) TV series is a must have for modern shows.

And I want to see if some of his rules change during the series. Like, Don't be a hero becomes Be a hero.
