Plus: Whit Stillman, assigned!
How can you be sick and tired of sequels but then be excited for Avatar 2 which is a sequel? And, IMHO, James Cameron's weakest movie. The first one where I felt he was repeating himself. I would rather watch The Abyss (either version), either Terminator, Titanic, Aliens or True Lies again than sit through another Avatar movie.
I can remember all the hoopla about Avatar. New! Groundbreaking! Never before seen! Well, maybe that was all true, but all I remember of it is that it ended with a war. I had actually, seriously, hoped it would be a movie that was imaginative enough to offer a solution, or resolution, that was not war. I was younger and idealistic then.
No Bonus episode this week?
Some people swear by Bimbo white bread. But it is not, and never will be, in the same league as bread fresh from the oven in it's oh-so-many iterations. One comic book movie is all I will ever need as in "been there and done that". Cameron products are a step up from the funnies, but not by much. I'll take a pass on a sequel to Avatar.
I was over comic book movies almost before they started. A couple of Batmans and a Spider-Man were all the comic books I could view.
I saw Avatar in 3d Imax, I've never been tempted to see it on a small screen.
The visuals were amazing, As science fiction with a creation of an ecology and universe that worked it was unique. The problem, all that creativity and that had to be the suckiest story line. It was stupid. If the screen play had half the creativity of the rest of the movie.... sigh.
So does he bring a better screen play to match the visuals or does he take it all down the toilet.
