AVATAR_ it just got that much cooler/dumber

November 3, 2009

Well, it’s been a day or so since I last bashed the upcoming mega-blockbuster Avatar and since I hate to disappoint my fans… here ya go!  LOL.  You know, I really seem to have it out for this movie… but the truth is, I don’t.  I’m just reacting to what I see and, as the marketing picks up, I’m seeing more.  In all honesty, there are times when I think this movie looks cool.  There are times when I get excited.  But, as you well know, there are times when it looks.. well… just plain stupid.  And it seems I’m more prone to write out of frustration.  

Today’s post will mix a little bit of cool with a little bit of dumb:

THE COOL:  

Though incredibly pompous and James Cameron seems to be bragging about having a ten year old script laying around that he thinks “would make a pretty good movie” the CGI effects are stunning… stunning in a YouTube video, no less.  My mouth is watering thinking about seeing this in the new 3-D technology that Cameron sold his soul to the devil to acquire.

THE DUMB:

Check out the video here.  How terrible is that?  Deadspin’s Dashiell Bennett says it all.

Thoughts?

    …this changes nothing for me except the redlined arrogance-level of James Cameron.

    ha, the rotund cinnamon-top even checked his marker.

    “We now ask that the fans in section 403, rows 5 and 6, seats 1 through 5 to please rise for a standing ovation. Thank you.”
