    I would say James Cameron has yet to make a movie that I don’t at least like

    this you?

    It is true. I only like lame things.

    I have to go see it in 3D because if nothing else Avatar 3D was a sumptuous visual feast.

    All I know is I have zero interest in seeing Avatar 2.

    I can't even remembsr if I saw the first one!

    I did! The theater was absolutely packed, and I got a horrible seat way too close to the screen and to the left to really let the 3D pop.

    There was a mech with a combat knife, which was cool, but I kind of hated the creature design, and of course everyone has discussed to death how boring and derivative the plot was.

    Oh, I despise Avatar, ain't a question for me.

    Stupid white savior narrative and a by-the-numbers Michelle Rodriguez appearance? Yeah, naw. (<3 Sigourney & the cookie-cutter evil military guy with the knife and mech suit, but yeah... nah.)

    But, yeah, Aliens, Abyss, T2, all bangers. Problematic fave True Lies.

    I thought Avatar 1 sucked at worst and maybe mediocre at best. To this day I continue to be baffled by how enormous of a hit the first one was.

    I like Cameron, broadly speaking, but Avatar just does absolutely nothing for me.

    I still remember, a lifetime ago, being excited that he was looking to adapt GUNNM

    So what you’re saying is that if he found a drowned possum in the pool he would throw it over the fence and let Arby’s deal with it?

    Raijin, Movies are family entertainment. Happy families.
    Maybe single people watch movies. We don't know.
    Frankly, we don't want to know. It's a market we can do without.

    So you’re saying you consider him a minor divorced man but I think he’s easily the equal of William Dawes or even Samuel Otis.

    It was a very pretty, very bad movie.

    The word of mouth recommendations I recall about it at the time was focused almost entirely on the 3d effects. Not plot or characters or action, just "must-see 3d". It landed in the perfect spot in that 3d craze window. Late enough for most theaters to have the tech, and just before people really started to realize that the eye strain and uncreative use wasn't worth paying double for.

    Just remember that half the people you meet are below average intelligence.

    The one thing that really sticks in my head from Avatar is the line in the beginning when Sam Worthington says something about his twin brother was killed. “For the coin in his pocket” and it’s such a shifty line with shitty, awkward delivery from Worthington that it’s permanently stuck right in the front of my brain.

    He has surpassed them. He in the shining sun to which all other Divorced man energy men look at squinting, going blind from the radiance.

    Remember when Elon tried to use a sub to rescue the miners using his sub? HE WISHES HE COULD USE A SUB LIKE JAMES CAMERON CAN!

    My teenage girl theory of movies is that a director is always especially good when he makes a movie that appeals to teenage girls

    Cameron: Titanic
    Miyazaki: Kiki’s Delivery Service
    Jackson: Heavenly Creatures
    Henson: Labyrinth
    Luhrmann: *entire filmography*

    That probably would have been my favorite gag in the movie if they had kept it, that's amazing.

    I feel like the slovenly nature of Candy's character was largely cut out, which is fine but creates a bit of a disconnect as to why Martin is not just annoyed but also disgusted with him...although the feet thing would be enough for anyone I guess.

    I just watched Enchanted for the first time, and then Disenchanted.

    The first one is deeply dumb but also self aware and enjoyable enough with Amy Adams selling her fish out of water. The acting is good across the board, the scenery chewing is fun, but man, that plot just dragged for me. As a character study, though, it's neat to see Adams flex.

    The sequel is the same, but more. Maya Rudolph is always welcome, but I wasn't feeling the broad acting as much; maybe just too much in a short period.
    Or I just liked the plot of the first more, as a better foil. Getting villain Amy Adams was cute, tho.

    "Love Power" (presumably) went on sooooo long. Like, I appreciate the thematic throughline, but I get it, geez.

    He does fuck up their hotel room pretty bad and put his socks in the sink

    I think that movie does a great job of going between totally getting why Martin would not want to be around this dude but also make Candy super likable

    The last Avatar movie came out so long ago that when I saw it in theaters, I smuggled a bottle of hard cider in the pocket of my cargo pants. It also came out so recently that when you do the math, holy shit was I already too old to excuse the previous sentence.
