James Cameron’s AVATAR – starting to look bad
During the last year or so there was an enormous hype about Cameron’s new movie “Avatar”. The movie was shrouded in mystery and sprinkled with supreme power words, like “movie that will redefine the cinema experience”, or “this will change your life”, etc.
As the time passed, the hype was getting enormous. Everyone went to cinemas to see “Watchmen”, and even tho “Watchmen” are really good people were saying that they expect even more from “Avatar”.
And yesterday, the trailer hit the internet.
And if you ask me, the shit hit the fan, blew up into 1000 pieces and sprinkled me all over face.

OK, they got some robots. They look like bloody LEGO robots. You have to be aware that during this year Transformers 2 were in cinemas as well. They had some AWESOME display of how robots should be done. You cannot just put some mechanical mumbo-jumbo and call it job finished.
And the shit hits the fan right about here. Titanic? Really? REALLY? Let me just quickly remind you that James Cameron did some other movies. Aliens. Abyss. Terminator. By choosing to put Titanic they clearly made a target for this movie – semi retarded men, insecure women and children who like Harry Potter.
There is nothing realistic in this shots. We have all seen fantasy graphic, and we have all seen BETTER fantasy graphic. Blizzard trailers and “World of Warcraft” cinematographic for example. Screw this, this is not even funny any more.
On top of all this, from the trailer you can extract the following storyline. We, the Humans discover new planet. At first we are cool with the species living there. Then some stuff happens, main character gets ported into body of an indigenous humanoid being. Being stupid Humans as we are, the supreme army commanders decide to burn the whole planet or at least take all of it’s resources or something, but our main character will step in to defend the poor local people. Bam bam bam, explosions and love drama.
Excuse my French, but … the fuck?!
Seriously … we have seen this cliché at least two hundred times so far, stop using it.
