devilEther: Mugato: Farking Clown Shoes: "Draw me like one of your Na'vi girls, Ja'ku..."

Maybe it's just me, but Dances with Smurfs was only successful because it was the first movie to use the new 3D technology. The story wasn't anything special and it certainly hasn't aged well.

What new technology? It looked like every other 3D movie.

"To film the live-action sequences of Avatar, he used a modified version of the Fusion camera. The new 3D camera creates an augmented-reality view for Cameron as he shoots, sensing its position on a motion-capture stage, then integrating the live actors into CG environments on the viewfinder. "It's a unique way of shooting stereo movies," says visual-effects supervisor Stephen Rosenbaum. "Cameron uses it to look into the environment; it's not about beating people over the head with visual spectacle." This immersive 3D brings a heightened believability to Avatar's live-action sequences-gradually bringing viewers deeper into the exotic world of Pandora."

I remember seeing Jaws 3D in the theater. The 3D effects in Avatar were profoundly better.


We're spoiled today but old school 3D looked like

She can call me "Titanic", because I would have been happy to go down with her on her maiden voyage.

/Call me, Kate. It's not too late.

Star Wars isn't a terribly special or unique story either, but as a kid seeing it for the first time in a theater, it was absolutely mind blowing.    Now you know why Avatar made so much money.

Eh, even at the time, I didn't enjoy the movie that much

My main complaint about the movie was about how much the bad guys enraged me; I do not like feeling that much anger.

It's not.  You nailed it.

No, because most everyone will check out the next Avatar out of curiosity, even if they aren't incredibly enthusiastic. That sets expectations nice and low.

Then, when the new story is unexpectedly great, and the movie itself is an incredibly fun and entertaining experience, as Cameron has accomplished for numerous other films, it will fundamentally change the perception of the whole franchise. Then everyone who doubted will look foolish.

Welcome to Fark, Mr. Cameron. I won't be seeing any of your Avatar movies except maybe on Netflix, but if it helps any, I think Aliens and Terminator 2 still hold up as some of the greatest sci-fi movies ever made. Instead of pulling a Lucas, why not quit while your legacy is still intact?

I think I did pretty good with The Abyss, and admit it--Titanic wasn't no slouch.


Titanic was pretty awful. But, I knew a girl who saw it 7 times in theaters. If you had just filmed Leonardo DiCaprio eating a ham sandwich, she probably only would have watched it 6 times.

meera's frog spear: Fano: Oh, I remember the days on Fark when 3D was gonna dominate movies forever and fogeys were laughed at as Luddites for claiming it wasn't that new a trick and that not all movies needed it.

Yeah, that was quite a few years ago. Farkers were saying "I can't wait for this trend to go away". They are still waiting.

I definitely agree not all movies need it. Goodfellas does not need to be rendered in 3D. But the Jurassic Park and Titanic 3D re-releases were fantastic. Hateful Eight? No. Guardians of the Galaxy? Hell yeah.


Damn straight. Dr Strange was AWESOME in 3D.

Anyway, it can't end until we get Nature Trail to Hell.
