You know Shakespeare is one word right? It`s the dudes last name.
Ridiculously involved comment is ridiculous.
So, in conculsion, Avatar? Unoriginal (It`s drating Pocahantas: IN SPACE! You even have a romance between a Collonist and a Schmurf FFS!), specific demographic and no Celine Dion. (This is important,Leona Lewis is not Celine Dion. And more to the point, who the hell is Leona Lewis?)
Avatar is doom to fail to succeed.
We all know that it will make it`s budget in less then a week thanks to all the hype around the making of the movie not the quality of the product itself (Might aswell say "Your car has been made out of the finest glass, polished to a shine by 11 Brazillian models") thus will have the inevetible advertisment with a prominent "#1 Movie in Canada".
It`s poo, it will make a lot of money. Don`t see it.
Terminator 3: Also known as the downfall of the Terminator series, soo bad that Those behind T4 concider your work "not of the same timeline" i.e.; "non-canon"
Titanic: No debating here, that was a success. It appealled to many demographics, hell, I wanted to see it for the whole "disaster" aspect every 9, 10 year old likes. It also had Celine Dion. This movie appealed to many different people AND those who like Celine Dion`s nazals tones.
Terminator 2: A Sequal (key word) to a dark horse success and a rising star. Yes, the movie was awesome, but no matter the awsomeness of something, if it had not been a sequal, it would not have had the budget it got. Which is what happened with "The Terminator"
The Terminator: Great original Story, never before seen footage, dark horse success.
James, your movie is poo. Long gone are the days of Terminator and Aliens. You are making a movie, in the future, retelling the whole "Colonists vs Aboriginese" with overgrown Gi-Joe war machines and Shmurfs. Literal, overgrown, Schmurfs. All blue and at one with nature. Shmurfs. Even has a Shmurfette.
There is nothing original about this. It has been done, to death. You are doing Pocahantas: IN SPACE! - Hardly anything is improved by adding said suffix. (See Jason X or Disney`s Treasure Planet)
If you are not yet convinced that the movie is going to be poo, lets analyse. Here are the last projects you worked on:
The Sarah Conor Chronicles: Allthough good, failled to attract viewers. PLUS, you had everything going for you seeing as their was a writter`s strik meaning relatively few new and/or quality shows where on that where not repeats.
URGH I am tired of this drummed up "Avatar" following. Most of the moviegoers will not know or care that you have invented a unique language, or used "brand new" filming techniques. The movie will have to stand up on it`s own.
Unfortunately, from what I have read and seen, the story is bland and unoriginal, the the characters unexciting. This is a nine year old boy`s movie. Thats your demographic, like it or not.
So when it fails to meet expectations of everyone losing their proverbial poo, buying all the merchandise and [always, consistently awefull] tie-in game, remember this:
I called it.
oh Avatar. Well at least it`s bringing the idea to more people.
`What`s next, the last nigga on earth starring Tom Hanks?` -Paul Mooney
And people can hate all they want, but I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and I`ll see it again. Although I watched Aliens the other day and it made me miss good old-fashioned animatronix. The alien queen is one of the most bad-ass special effects ever created.
Tsu`tey doesn`t die that fast and Eycutan does.
HAHA. WHERE IS YOUR PLOT NAO?!?!?!
Even just saying it is hilarious.
Besides, exploiting native peoples for their resources is nothing new or original. It`s something that has actually happened in history and has been adapted for literature/film countless times.
Just because it`s a story we`ve heard before doesn`t mean it`s not worth hearing.
Except that the effects looked so real in some parts that you forgot they were special effects... (In my case anyways. lol)
But i do give it credit it was a good movie.
WHAT THE F*CK???
i was thinking the same thing, lol, people amuse me.
Saw it in 3d imax though. Badass.
Actually, he wrote the script 15 years ago but didn`t actually start working on filming it til the last 4-5 years. He stated this in an interview. He simply "shelved it" for 10 years until the technology was ready, not because he was always making it better.
The person who stated the Carl Jung thing is very true, every story is based off another story, every character cliche is based off another character cliche..
James Cameron may be a brilliant filmmaker, but he`s a major-league @$$hole, so f**k him!
I see you`re aged somewhere between 13 and 17. Figures.
Still it was a beautiful film, stunning to watch visually but an old and well used plotline :D"<<
WIN. Watched it all the time in my early years.
Still it was a beautiful film, stunning to watch visually but an old and well used plotline :D
Seriously though, it`s an amazing movie.
I would still recommend anyone to see this film, it`s visually stunning, and the plot and characters really aren`t as bad as the uptight critics make them out to be.
Ans I only saw this for the sparkly, awesome graphics. I figured the plot was gonna be mediocre given that the trailer seemed to focus on explosions and zomg there are blue aliens.
- I don`t think any movies in my lifetime have been created as a new fresh idea. so damn sad
However, I still enjoyed the movie and would recommend it.
In whichever case: it`s a (sorta, once again) grown up version of Pocahontas, but one that both boys and girls like! =D
Pass the win will you.
I think James Cameron ripped off Disney`s Pocahontas!
