So, everyone’s been talking about Avatar, James Cameron’s first movie in 10 years. I’ve heard it described as “epic”, “amazing”, etc, etc, but when I first saw the ads, I cringed. According to Wikipedia, the movie has been in development since 1994, but things only got going in 2005 because Cameron believe that technology needed to catch up with “his vision” of the film. Perhaps he should have used the time to not make the story suck.
I had this long essay planned where I’d rip into the sack of crap Cameron called a story, however IO9 has a much better article on it. Perhaps Cameron should of stopped doing stuff like hiring a linguistics expert to create the Na’Vi language and instead try not make the movie a cross between Dances with Wolves and Fern Gully.
At least the visuals were good.
