Marcus Aurelius: When I think of "Avatar" I think of "Ishtar". Because they were both as watchable as each other.
Benevolent Misanthrope: And I want James Cameron to get a grip on himself and fark off. Don't think that's going to happen, either.
Benevolent Misanthrope: Marcus Aurelius: When I think of "Avatar" I think of "Ishtar". Because they were both as watchable as each other.And here I was thinking that I was the only person who thought Avatar was awful.
TV's Vinnie: Loved the scene with Tsu'tey at the toll booth.
Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Might as well make live action versions of the Monchichis.
scottydoesntknow: I didn't realize so many people compared it to Dances With Wolves. I always thought it more closely resembled Fern Gully with all the environmentalism.
Flappyhead: Well both movies were long.
Mad_Radhu: Plus, I'm a sucker for Wayne Barlowe creature design
Rhypskallion: Marcus Aurelius: When I think of "Avatar" I think of "Ishtar". Because they were both as watchable as each other.When I think of Avatar, I think of the Nick property, the one which became 'the Last Airbender' movie. Avatar reruns are still fun. Cameron should have changed his movie's name out of respect for this superior idea. Fark him.
Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: Avatar was a steaming heap of colorful shiat.But people bought tickets in droves.Maybe to watch the technology. It was colorful.I can't see billion dollar receipts for four more movies.And he'd better make them fast.The series has absolutely no resonance in the culture.'Jake-centric'? Who the hell was Jake?But still, the movie-going public is idiotic. They'll buy lots of tickets again.It will make a lot of money.And have still zero affect on the popular imagination.Might as well make live action versions of the Monchichis.
theorellior: It's been quite a while since "Avatar" came out and I really only hear one person clamoring for sequels. And that person would be James Cameron.One would hope he's hire some actual writers to flesh out this world. Of course, he's probably just hired Damon Lindelof for extra suckage.
GonzoNihilist: It insists upon itself
theorellior: Mad_Radhu: Plus, I'm a sucker for Wayne Barlowe creature designYeah, me too. Although having WB do the creature design meant there were all sorts of questions like "Why didn't the Na'vi have doubled forelimbs or peripheral eyes like every other farking animal on Pandora?"
quizzical: It was a perfectly mediocre movie. It took no risks with characterization, or plot, or theme. It was visually impressive, but I don't think that alone means a movie merits a sequel (let alone three of them).
Esroc: I don't see how Avatar was as awful as you guys are clamoring to describe it as. I will grant that it wasn't the height of cinema but it was still a fun movie.You guys remember fun, right?
Eddie Adams from Torrance: Overrated and too damn long?
