shit was tight
Best fucking film i've ever seen.
Added a poll for an easier way to say what you think about it. 10 options was maximum though, so I couldn't put a 1 or a 0.
wait holy shit RE4 is coming?
Tron Legacy in 3D :awesome:

[b]"When Will White People Stop Making Movies Like "Avatar"?"[/b] [url]http://io9.com/5422666/when-will-whi...es-like-avatar[/url] Good article about the not-so-subtle racism in Avatar.
I'll just post this B-roll footage as I did in the old thread. [url]http://www.traileraddict.com/trailer/avatar/b-roll-i[/url]
I'll sum it up. The story was unoriginal, the characters were not memorable, but the CGI was astounding, and the immersion of Pandora and it's environment is excellent.
Fucking loved it. I've seen it twice already and plan to go again sometime this week.
Good thread postal

Cameron is a good director, and whoever Cameron hired to do the CGI is amazing, but he cannot write a script to save his life.
I watched it in 3D, its fucking awesome.
My fucking dick exploded during the final battle. THat was fucking amazing.
[QUOTE=Warren Holzem;19285607] but he cannot write a script to save his life.[/QUOTE] Aliens? T2? Also I find it ironic that both Cameron and Ridley Scott haven't made proper sci-fi in fucking years.
[QUOTE=Warren Holzem;19285607]This. Cameron is a good director, and whoever Cameron hired to do the CGI is amazing, but he cannot write a script to save his life.[/QUOTE] Except his script for the original Avatar was incredible.
[QUOTE=postal;19285461]1. They’re making their own ‘alien language and culture’ for the film to make it more authentic. The detail they're putting into the language is incredible. Wikipedia copy-paste: [b][url=http://www.ew.com/ew/article/0,,20007998,00.html]"Working with Paul Frommer, linguist and Director of the Center for Management Communication at USC, he developed a whole language and culture for the Na'vi, the indigenous race on Pandora"[/url][/b][/QUOTE] All they did was combine Native American and Ethiopian cultures. Why the fuck did they need a bunch of PhD's at USC to do that?

Stephen Lang is awesome.
I feel it was more of a tech demo than a movie. Not that the plot was awful, it was just generic.
He is bad ass in Public Enemies (a [sp]far BETTER[/sp] film)
I want to get around to seeing it sometime soon
[QUOTE=Occlusion;19285691]I feel it was more of a tech demo than a movie. Not that the plot was awful, it was just generic.[/QUOTE] The [I]Crysis[/I] of the movie world, if you will.
[QUOTE=jcallan;19285696]He is bad ass in Public Enemies (a [sp]far BETTER[/sp] film)[/QUOTE] [sp]Was he the guy that shot dillinger in the head at the end?[/sp]
Thread needs this interview :D [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GaplgqYL_s[/media]
Who plays Colonel Quartich anyway? He seems like a new face.
I'm going to see it on the 17th since our nearest 3D cinema is 2 hours away.
I'm probably going to see it tomorrow. And I'm making sure that it's going to be watched 3d
[QUOTE=Occlusion;19285691]I feel it was more of a tech demo than a movie. Not that the plot was awful, it was just generic.[/QUOTE] Wow, excellent comparison! Definitely the best 3D and best CGI I have ever seen, but yeah it did feel like a tech demo.
I hated it when I saw it in the movies, but after I got home I started to think. It really is a good movie. Or maybe it's just the na'vi's blue skin that I find hot.
