RandomAxe: dittybopper: Perhaps. If that's the case, why didn't they just go after the easy source, the floating mountains? They've got to be full of the stuff. Why bother strip mining?They were clearly idiots. That's really the only explanation. Almost everything they do is really, really dumb -- witness the orbital-bomber-flying-absurdly-low stuff, for instance.
RandomAxe: Whatever. If the stuff won't survive a heavy saturation bombing of some kind, which seems unlikely, then the corporation would just poison the surface. In that case, the sequel should be Alien Ecosystem vs Agent Orange.Either way, the reality is that the corporation's likely to come back and burn vast areas of the surface to cinder, with heat or explosives or radiation or chemicals. It's the historical and economic reality.
netweavr: Why not just burn the whole planet down then strip mine the corpse?
Mugato: quizzical: Mugato: /Avatar is the #1 movie of all time (not adjusting for inflation) but does anyone ever talk about it or give a shiat about a sequel?The movie was wildly popular and lots of people wanted more. James Cameron recently expanded the sequel list from two movies to three, and Disney is building a damn Avatar land. But I wonder if, at this point, everyone waited to long to capitalize on the initial hype. It was a pretty generic story coupled with some good special effects. James Cameron's name is on the top, so the sequels will make some money. But maybe not the Scrooge McDuck money bins that the invested parties want to see./Personally, I'm meh on more AvatarI understand that it made a lot of money. I think that a lot of it was that it had little competition that season and was basically an FX demo reel for the next generation of 3D movies that it brought about. But does anyone really care about the story or seeing it continued? Can anyone even name an iconic character from the film? I know the main character is....that guy. The nondescript guy who isn't Thomas Jane but might as well be. And of course Sigourney Weaver who everyone loves but isn't exactly "name above the title". I dunno, maybe it's just the people I know but I don't see people foaming at the mouth for an Avatar sequel.Disney has Star Wars now, I think they would be a lot better off building a Star Wars Land than Avatarland.
Saiga410: Meh Planet Catsex has been done. All that needs to occur is that someone finds a Planet Dogsex that has unobtainium mark 2 which is 5 times more powerful.It is either that or we drop killer robots onto Planet Catsex. These robots that have the ability to make better replicant copies of themselves. The movie can end with a "survivor" of the original war being found and taken back to earth..
blue_2501: And F**k Cameron

Canadian sci-fi, much like British, always manages to start going one way then swerve it right into WTFland.
red5ish: Avatar is an incredibly trite and predictable movie carried by jaw dropping CGI.
