    I've followed this site for years, but never felt compelled to respond to anything until now... It's odd that the same folks who criticize Hollywood for remakes, reimaginings, do-overs, etc. also criticize Cameron for doing original work. The guy has busted his ass providing you with top-notch entertainment since the early 80's. As a small token of appreciation for the hardest working director of all time who also happens to be a geek like the rest of us, why not give him the benefit of the doubt and take a wait-and-see approach? If Avatar comes up short, then it deserves criticism. At this point, however, if it succeeds, a lot of you will look foolish...

    he was shit in T4. Nevermind the movie itself. he was just plain shite. lack of dialogue in the AVATAR trailer has me concerned that he is shit again. now I've seen the TITANS trailer and that has fuck all dialogue too. to say nothing of the lack of mechanical owls and winged steeds.

    Everything about this movie looks amazing

    by jsscript2007

    It's ironic that elements the haters choose to make reference to have all been massive successes in their own right. Furthermore, over the last few months I've seen a number of people who grew from starting as indifferent to now looking forward to seeing Avatar. This movie has the potential to be a milestone in the history of film and that's exciting. If the movie isn't, c'est la vie. But why hate it? If the movie becomes a big success, (which it appears it will be)generations of film going audiences will benefit from it. It might be too much for some narow minded people to grasp, but Avatar is truly an event that doesn't come along every day and is genuinely something to be excited about.

    Cameron

    Is uniquely consistent. I can't imagine this isn't going to be great. However, it will be different, more similar to a Pixar movie than live action, which may (or may not) become an issue.

Finally, for the first time since this latest 3D trend started (and I'm a huge fan of 3D, so I've seen probably 9/10ths of the movies that have come out) I don't have to go see some dauntless, cutesy cartoons rollicking around trying to stop some real estate developer hell bent on destroying the rec center! I get to see actual explosions and guns and spaceships and things. I'll put up with a lot of crap for that.

    Finally figured out what this movie's claim to greatness is...

    by BurnHollywood

    Ain't the science. Ain't the plot. Sure as hell ain't the dialogue or characters.<p> No, what makes this movie interesting, wryly amusing and unique is...Cameron found a way to pit the "space marine" meme he created with ALIENS against LORD OF THE RINGS. It's Corporate America versus Rivendell, Dick Cheney versus Legolas, Blackwater versus The Silmarillion (complete with a magic tree...no shit), William Gibson versus JRR Tolkien. Cynicism versus Romanticism. SF versus Fantasy.<p> Now, THAT'S actually clever and timely, especially in this era when old-fashioned "Hard SF" is in a sort of funk, partly due to the unpredictability of predicting what happens in the post-Singularity era...as a result of that conundrum, speculative fiction has veered sideways into steampunk, philosophical discourse (Neil Stephenson and DEATH NOTE), superheroes and supernatural fantasy (TWILIGHT and its ilk).<p> While I doubt Cameron was out to make such a bold statement, AVATAR is actually a darkly humorous, unintentional metaphor for the state of speculative fiction onscreen and off in this era, as well as the "Clash Of Civilizations" pessimism of the Bush era slamming into the "Hope and Change" idealism of the Obama era head-on.<p> If this message registers subconsciously with moviegoers in a positive way (and I still hold the majority of its take will be overseas), then it has the making of a major hit. Guess we'll see.

    by Glitch5

    This film does seem to be up there in unique settings of films. "Avatar" looks like a great work of art by Peter Jackson. Is he directing it? He didn't fail us with the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy and if I get the chance to see this movie, I don't think I will be disappointing.

    RealD or IMAX Digital 3D?

    by BubbaDestructo

    I have the opportunity to see Avatar in either of these formats. <p> Which 3D format would you recommend, and why?

  • Dec. 9, 2009, 11:35 p.m. CST

    RealD FTW

    by blakindigo

    There is nothing wrong with IMAX Digital, nothing at all. But, I noticed that on the IMAX screen, if you don't sit back far enough, the image was overwhelming, and difficult to absorb. The chase sequence with the panther-like beast (I went to "Avatar Day" and saw the 15 min presentation. Twice.) was well paced, but difficult to follow. Unfortunately I was sitting too close. If you do go to IMAX try to sit further back, because the screen is about 80' high.<br><br>The polarizers used in Real D supposedly allow for greater head movement, although you'd probably have to A/B roll them back-to-back. But, if you want the grandest IMAGE possible on the largest screen then see it in IMAX. Just sit farther back.

    Avatar will be good because the trailers are weak

    by MST3KPIMP

    seriously. most blockbuster movies that dissapoint usually have trailers that wow you, they are made for the sole purpose of producing a trailer to pack theaters. I recall not caring for the trailers for Dark Knight but was surprised how good it was. So I'm going with the weak trailer=good movie theory. I mean cumon it's Cameron!

    I've seen Christmas Carol in IMAX

    by JohnRyder

    and it was very underwhelming. I hope AVATAR uses better technology (the +D trailer before the movie was very impressive) but my experience is that if you do not sit right in the middle of the row, you might as well better watch a 2d version, cause the wrong angle of perspective only ruins the movie.

    Avatar is going to FUCKING ROCK!

    by FilmFan311

    Back in August, I attended the Avatar 3-D IMAX 15 minutes of footage simply as something to kill the time before seeing INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS that night. Low and behold, AVATAR: 3-D IMAX was fucking AMAZING for all 15 minutes and I simply cannot wait for this next week! Fuck the Haters! I've never seen anything like it before. See you at the movies next week!!

    You are one sad, neurotic little jerk-off, you know that? A fucking adult turns up on a Talkback and says that while he has some reservations about plot elements, he thinks the movie occupies a worthy niche in movie history...and actually explains that compliment.<p> But that's not good enough. No, you've got to be some wild-eyed fucking Cameron fanatic, who thinks it's going to be "the bestest movie ever, ever, ever!!!" or some mouthy little worm like you or ominus is going to start wailing "troll!" or "hater!"<p> So fuck you both. I hope it is good...in fact, I hope it's so fucking great, your fat ass chokes on the tenth hot dog you're forcing down your throat, and the last thing you see is a big blue Na'vi face beaming down on you like Lincoln's head on Mt.

    last part of empre review ( no spoiler)

    by mr dark

    Verdict It’s been twelve years since Titanic, but the King of the World has returned with a flawed but fantastic tour de force that, taken on its merits as a film, especially in two dimensions, warrants four stars. However, if you can wrap a pair of 3D glasses round your peepers, this becomes a transcendent, full-on five-star experience that's the closest we'll ever come to setting foot on a strange new world. Just don’t leave it so long next time, eh, Jim? Oh yeah ..Thats pretty much what I was wanting out of this..

    by MandrakeRoot

    No one believed us when we said the Avatar day footage was something to behold. Heck most people here have been doing nothing but claiming Avatar will be awful, a flop, or that it just doesn't interest them. I'll admit the last complaint could be valid, cause to each his own...but to doubt Jim Cameron would deliver a great movie? C'mon people! <p> I'm gonna love seeing douches like Trannyformers and Retard Nerd show themselves around here after their "guarantees" fall flat. Leave em with a nice quote... <p> "The movie is 161 minutes and flies by in a rush. Repeat business? You bet. "Titanic"-level business? That level may never be reached again, but Fox will see more than enough grosses worldwide to cover its bet on Cameron. "

    "The last forty minutes, in which Cameron uncorks the action and shows all the young pretenders – the Bays and the Emmerichs and the Von Triers (?!) – how it’s done. The human attack on Pandora and the subsequent fightback, led by Avatar-Jake, is a largely sustained setpiece of quite staggering scale, imagination and emotion that manages to compress both the truly epic – a human attack on a Na’vi landmark that recalls 9/11 in its devastating imagery – and the thrillingly intimate, as Jake finally faces off against the excellent Stephen Lang’s Quaritch."

    Big Jim didn't loose his mind like the other big boys (speilberg, Lucas). The biggest reason I want to see this, I think; is because this is really the first Cameron film that heavily incorporates the organic. All of his other films have taken place in highly technological environments (Deepcore in The Abyss, the colonists settlement in Aliens, Modern and Future LA in Terminator). That's a pretty big departure for that guy and it sounds like he nailed it.

    HOLLYWOOD REPORTER REVIEW

    by jsscript2007

    Bottom Line: A titanic entertainment -- movie magic is back! A dozen years later, James Cameron has proven his point: He is king of the world. As commander-in-chief of an army of visual-effects technicians, creature designers, motion-capture mavens, stunt performers, dancers, actors and music and sound magicians, he brings science-fiction movies into the 21st century with the jaw-dropping wonder that is "Avatar." And he did it almost from scratch. There is no underlying novel or myth to generate his story. He certainly draws deeply on Westerns, going back to "The Vanishing American" and, in particular, "Dances With Wolves." And the American tragedy in Vietnam informs much of his story. But then all great stories build on the past ( "Avatar" premiered Thursday in London). After writing this story many years ago, he discovered that the technology he needed to make it happen did not exist. So, he went out and created it in collaboration with the best effects minds in the business. This is motion capture brought to a new high where every detail of the actors' performances gets preserved in the final CG character as they appear on the screen. Yes, those eyes are no longer dead holes but big and expressive, almost dominating the wide and long alien faces. The movie is 161 minutes and flies by in a rush. Repeat business? You bet. "Titanic"-level business? That level may never be reached again, but Fox will see more than enough grosses worldwide to cover its bet on Cameron. But let's cut to the chase: A fully believable, flesh-and-blood (albeit not human flesh and blood) romance is the beating heart of "Avatar." Cameron has never made a movie just to show off visual pyrotechnics: Every bit of technology in "Avatar" serves the greater purpose of a deeply felt love story (watch the trailer here). The story takes place in 2154, three decades after a multinational corporation has established a mining colony on Pandora, a planet light years from Earth. A toxic environment and hostile natives -- one corporate apparatchik calls the locals "blue monkeys" -- forces the conglom to engage with Pandora by proxy. Humans dwell in oxygen-drenched cocoons but move out into mines or to confront the planet's hostile creatures in hugely fortified armor and robotics or -- as avatars. The protagonist, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), is a crippled former Marine who takes his late twin brother's place in the avatar program, a sort of bone thrown to the scientific community by the corporation in hopes that the study of Pandora and its population might create a more peaceful planet. Without any training, Jake suddenly must learn how to link his consciousness to an avatar, a remotely controlled biological body that mixes human DNA with that of the native population, the Na'vi. Since he is incautious and overly curious, he immediately rushes into the fresh air -- to a native -- to throw open Pandora's many boxes. What a glory Cameron has created for Jake to romp in, all in a crisp 3D realism. It's every fairy tale about flying dragons, magic plants, weirdly hypnotic creepy-crawlies and feral dogs rolled up into a rain forest with a highly advanced spiritual design. It seems -- although the scientists led by Sigourney Weaver's top doc have barely scratched the surface -- a flow of energy ripples through the roots of trees and the spores of the plants, which the Na'vi know how to tap into. The center of life is a holy tree where tribal memories and the wisdom of their ancestors is theirs for the asking. This is what the humans want to strip mine. Jake manages to get taken in by one tribe where a powerful, Amazonian named Neytiri (Zoe Saldana) takes him under her wing to teach him how to live in the forest, speak the language and honor the traditions of nature. Yes, they fall in love but Cameron has never been a sentimentalist: He makes it tough on his love birds. They must overcome obstacles and learn each other's heart. The Na'vi have a saying, "I see you," which goes beyond the visual. It means I see into you and know your heart. In his months with the Na'vi, Jake experiences their life as the "true world" and that inside his crippled body locked in a coffin-like transponding device, where he can control his avatar, is as the "dream." The switch to the other side is gradual for his body remains with the human colony while his consciousness is sometimes elsewhere. He provides solid intelligence about the Na'vi defensive capabilities to Col. Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang), the ramrod head of security for the mining consortium and the movie's villain. But as Jake comes to see things through Neytiri's eyes, he hopes to establish enough trust between the humans and the natives to negotiate a peace. But the corporation wants the land the Na'vi occupy for its valuable raw material so the Colonel sees no purpose in this. The battle for Pandora occupies much of the final third of the film. The planet's animal life -- the creatures of the ground and air -- give battle along with the Na'vi, but they come up against projectiles, bombs and armor that seemingly will be their ruin. As with everything in "Avatar," Cameron has coolly thought things through. With every visual tool he can muster, he takes viewers through the battle like a master tactician, demonstrating how every turn in the fight, every valiant death or cowardly act, changes its course. The screen is alive with more action and the soundtrack pops with more robust music than any dozen sci-fi shoot-'em-ups you care to mention (watch the "Avatar" video game trailer here). In years of development and four years of production no detail in the pic is unimportant. Cameron's collaborators excel beginning with the actors. Whether in human shape or as natives, they all bring terrific vitality to their roles. Mauro Fiore's cinematography is dazzling as it melts all the visual elements into a science-fiction whole. You believe in Pandora. Rick Carter and Robert Stromberg's design brings Cameron's screenplay to life with disarming ease. James Horner's score never intrudes but subtlety eggs the action on while the editing attributed to Cameron, Stephen Rivkin and John Refoua maintains a breathless pace that exhilarates rather than fatigues. Not a minute is wasted; there is no down time. The only question is: How will Cameron ever top this?

    by HatersHate

    straw man? check. Wildly nonsensical argument? Check. I merely pointed out that the reviews and buzz so far are OVERWHELMINGLY positive. Based on that, the director, and what I've seen so far I would tend to believe that I will in fact like this movie. And to be fair, you didn't actually say anything, you just trolled and implied that the positive reviews didn't matter, thereby also implying that the movie, despite the overwhelming positive reception it has received will suck. I'm starting my analysis of this movie from a rational and informed position and you are being a cut rate troll. Are we done here?

Hell, gnr LIES was better than Chinese Democracy. ANd don't get me wrong, I like it, I may actually like it better than Use Your Illusion, maybe. But no one, trust me NO ONE will ever be screaming out to hear "This I Love" or TWAT twenty years from now. No One will be hoping they play IRS. Never Ever.

    projects his feelings onto others and informs himself based on his "coworkers." Meanwhile, in the real world "search volume for Avatar at this stage—one week before release—is about the same as the count for Wolverine, a movie that earned $87 million on its opening weekend." Which of course doesn't take into account the high 3D premium (about 40%) and the crazy amount of buzz that's about to drop based on this premiere and the reviews. I'm picturing some commercials with some of these quotes basically saying this is the hottest shit ever to happen (hyperbole of course) but nonetheless what the early reviews have said. No, this movie will do incredibly well in worldwide box office.

    by BurnHollywood

    As I predicted, its reception overseas was almost certain to be more positive than in the "corporate culture" US, where its anti-business message will probably generate more than a few mixed reviews...but not as mixed as they might be if the Brits weren't already on record as saying they loved it.<p> Clearly, the studio is hedging on major international business.

    straw man? check. Putting words in my mouth? check. Not knowing what cognitive dissonance means? check. Here is what I said "Based on that, the director, and what I've seen so far I would tend to believe that I will in fact like this movie." Because I haven't seen the movie doesn't mean that I can't make rational and informed decisions on whether or not I probably will or probably will not like it. It is the same thing we all do when deciding to see the movie. For the record, cognitive dissonance occurs when one tries to reconcile two contradictory realities; one real and one imagined. The reviews would have to be negative for me to have cognitive dissonance. You on the other hand are discounting the positive reviews in order to hold on to your pre-conception that the movie must suck. That is textbook. Are we done here?

    I do go to GNR sites. Like I said I'm a fan and I like the album okay and I do not begrudge you your opinion. But do you really think it's as good as Appetite? This is important to me because Axl spent around 17 years making it. Radiohead have had their entire career in that timespan. I think Chinese Democracy appeals to a very, very, narrow group of super die hard axl fans which is fine by me, but I assure you that WAS NOT axl's intention. Also, I'll definitely be seeing guns if Axl works up the courage to tour the US. Go Cameron!!

    Couldn't the same argument that you just made against Hatershate, be made by your premature negativity or cynicism. <p> Think its unlreastic for people not to have a view before seeing a movie, based on the director, the previes etc, experiences with other movies, its very natural. <p> Both sides though would seem to overreact to early reviews, people who are positive are listening to so far a relatively small population, where negative people/haters are trying to find problems with the reviewers that they come across as obsessive to their beliefs. I am guilty of this as most people are<p> But for me what I find worse is when you have a movie like Star Trek, or Dark Knight that has such a high critical consensus (see rottentomatoes , metacritic) and still you get haters coming out with rediculous comments about both, that really demonstrates nerd rage more than a critical mind.

    You seem like a reasonable dude unlike Ash. To be fair though, I was anticipating this movie but also very anxious that it might simply not work. I love 3d technology and Cameron, but I was honestly only somewhat looking forward to this before tonight. Again, it just seemed like he might not be able to pull this off. But I've been reading what's been coming out, and now I'm trying to lower my expectations. Honestly, I've NEVER seen reviews like this. Over and over people are saying it is simply amazing and on a different level (seen in 3d) and that the story is actually pretty decent. I keep seeing words like "amazing" "game changing" "spectacle" "the future of cinema", comparing it to the original King Kong. I mean over the top effusive reviews. So yeah, at this point I'm now trying to lower my expectations, because that can't really be true right?

    I agree MadEye

    by HatersHate

    at least partially. I don't think the reviews were to the same level even for jurassic park. And truly great CGI/3D in a blockbuster might move the ball forward in a way that CG alone does not. For example T2/Abyss had amazing CG even before JP. I don't doubt that Avatar probably will not hold up over time. Just like the orginal King Kong does not (I'm sorry it just doesn't.. technology matters.) But I think your comparison to JP might be apt. I remember sitting in the theater being amazed. I think with such an immersive 3D experience Avatar could be an even greater *experience*. As I said, I happen to be a fan of 3D for the right movies. In that sense, I'm thinking the movie might not be eternal or important in the way a Kubrick movie is, but I'm also thinking I just might have the best time I've had sitting in a big theater in long, long time. I hope so. The reviews have got me stoked, because they seem to be saying what I hoped for in my wildest dreams: story actually pretty engaging and draws you in and the technology immerses you in a very special movie going experience.

Zing!! and Ker-ching!!

  • Dec. 10, 2009, 11:08 p.m. CST

    I don't agree with the JP comparisons

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    in that Avatar will be a technical marvel that will probably not hold up over time. JP wasn't even that satisfying when it came out - it had a few great set pieces, but it was clearly a rushed affair, with Spielberg hurrying the production so he could get cracking on Schindler's list. And it began the trend of Spielberg ending his films weakly, with that random ending where they just drive off. Also, very bland characters for the most part. <p>Compare that to T2 a few years earlier, which was a satisfying and complete movie quite apart from the groundbreaking FX, with rock solid structure and characters. Ditto The Abyss, which holds up the best out of all the summer blockbusters of 89, even though it ws the least successful at the time. I think Avatar will be no different - typically Cameronian solid and timeless storytelling coupled with stunning effects. It will still work as an emotional tale and a killer action movie long after its tech lustre has faded, same as T2.

    by HatersHate

    I can't picture a scenario where this cracks $1 billion domestic. That's crazy talk. BUT $1.5-2 billion worldwide total could happen. I mean shit, the new Ice Age banked nearly $700 million foreign based mostly on the strength of 3D. Avatar very well could do twice that business or more.

  • Dec. 10, 2009, 11:17 p.m. CST

    Maybe turd

    by HatersHate

    but both T2 and the Abyss are almost entirely not CG. Avatar is all CG. I fully expect that it will look silly in 5 or 10 or 20 years. That's just the nature of things. But based on these reviews I'm hoping for an incredible movie going experience. I dont particularly care if it holds up to a viewing at home 10 years later, to be honest.

    In a world where Transformers 2 grossed over

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    $400m, I see no reason why a genuine event movie like Avatar should not vastly exceed it. If you take Titanic's gross and adjust for inflation, it would be around $900m+. Well, I expect Avatar to beat Titanic. And given the higher premiums of 3D and IMAX tickets (coupled with an unusually long IMAX run), I say it's do-able. There may very well be IMAX 3D re-releases annually for the next few years (until 3D becomes a home theater staple) as well.

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    However, how much better can CG get? I'm sure it will improve even further with ever more detailed mo-cap work and Cameron's plans to increase the frame rate to 48fps in his future movies (thus making animation even more fluid and natural). But if something is on the cusp of photo-realism or crosses the uncanny valley already, then it may just be a difference by degrees. Can you get more real than real? Is there a point where the eye simply can't perceive any more realism/detail and just plateaus out?

    Yes you can get much better

    by HatersHate

    we are not even close to *truly* photo real yet IMO. Don't get me wrong, some of the tight shots in this with the right lighting look absolutely mind blowing. BUT those well lit wide shots are instantly, immediately processed to my brain as CG. This movie will get dated, but like I said... i don't really care.

    Turd Has Risen

    by jsscript2007

    You ask a great question in regards to "Can you get more real than real?" I think you can, when you look back to the evolution of comic book art. Remember when the characters/heroes in the late 70's were all drawn life like, with detailed muscles, etc and then it evolved into a newer style, especially with the Hulk, where his image seemed more like an extension of his personality, than an anatomically correct being. CG might allow for that sort of evolution with human/cg character growth.

    Did you see The Avatar Day footage?

    by Turd_Has_Risen_From_The_Grave

    The effects in many of the scenes cannot be properly judged on a computer monitor but must be seen on a large screen and preferably in 3D, which tricks the eye even further (though it should look good in 2D also). Bear in mind that I'm not just talking about the na'vi here, but also the jungle environments/water, all of which are absolutely photoreal. Not to mention the CGI humans lie many close up shots of Colonel Quaritch in his amp suit (yes, they are entirely CG). Many of the shots in the released featurettes and trailers have also been unfinished.<p> The true litmus test will be the final film, though.

    I could see that stylized evolution possibly coming into play with Battle Angel, should it ever get made, since it features a synthetic human girl who changes bodies across the span of the story that reflect her growth and personality.

  • Dec. 10, 2009, 11:52 p.m. CST

    Yeah,

    by HatersHate

    but I just tend to think we're not at the end of history on anything. B/c our frame of reference is only very, very good CG, we can't know what we'll think when 100% photo real is around. The difference might objectively seem slight, but to some kid born 20 years from now, this movie will look like a cartoon. Moving forward, people will not be accustomed to anything looking less than 100% real. That's why this movie will get dated. But that's all in the future and my eyeballs will get fucked next week.

    You guys are being played like a Violin by Ash

    by Spacezilla

    He is just trying to push buttons. You are probably helping him fill some kind of fucking parasitic ego where he thinks he needs to suck off other people. He is a loser. a Zero point Zero. He doesn't think Avatar sucks. He is just trying to fuck with everyone. There is no way is as Dee Dee Dee retarded as he seems.

Its all in the execution.

    Its a good night for people that wanted to see this film succeed

    by mr dark

    A new bar is set and someone else will have to jump it..It's a good thing when this kind of hype is met with someone who can back it up. James Cameron should be proud for what seems to be a gamble that paid off with his vision..I saw the 16 mins. in 3-d at a liemax showing twice and I knew after seeing what I did that we were in for something special..I can't wait to see this next week in it's entirety..A shout out to all the people who kept the faith on this and Turd , Ominus, Hatershate, see you guys in line..

    Looks like the first review for Avatar is in! One Word!

    by Ganymede3001

    SPECTACULAR. The review claims that it's better than anything Cameron has ever done. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/film-reviews/avatar-film-review-1004052868.story

    spacezilla....sorry, dude ash really is that

    by southafricanguy

    retarded. You should have seen his emotional outburst/rant in the other talkback where he is proud of liking T4 and Gijoe, thinks JJ Abrahms is the new Spielberg, Cameron is Hack (he still does nt understand what the word means), and that Sommers, Mcg etc...are all better than Cameron. It was a truly spectacular moment of showing what a complete mental patient he is....

  • Dec. 11, 2009, 1:30 a.m. CST

    Anybody here know how to shake a gay stalker without resorting to violence? seniorspeilbergio has become a little attached to me (or, should I say, WOULD LIKE his mouth to become attached to me) and has become quite the pest. Worse, a good beating would probably just turn him on...

It's a fucking frightening sight but you just can't turn away from the trainwreck. So yeah, my man. Stick around. We gonna be pals. Avatar opens real soon, Burney. We gonna have us some fun. :)
