i still haven't seen it, despite it now being the most successful film ever. i think that laser cats</b> seems the better movie though.


i noticed in the avatar porno story, that they were also going to make a porno curb your enthusiasm. the mind boggles.


that site's a good find rex. any site with a story called "3d glasses: cleaner than your balls" is a winner for me.


here's the youtube clip from the site about avatar makeup:

I watched Avatar at the weekend - in full 3-D.


It's all right but it's not the greatest film ever made - it's not even the best James Cameron movie ever made. In terms of story the broad strokes are fairly predictable. The effects are very impressive in places and there were parts of the film I really enjoyed, but ultimately it's not worth the money/hype etc.


As for the 3-D: I went in expecting to enjoy that aspect - it's the first time I've seen the new 3-D at the cinema and I had been very positive about that but as I watched it I found I became Mark Kermode and concluded that whilst it's clever but it is just a gimmick. Rather than being "immersive" and taking you further into the film it's actually distracting and keeps reminding you that you're in the cinema watching a film and wearing funny glasses. It takes you away from the pure experience of losing yourself in the film.


I sincerely hope it doesn't get the Best Picture award at the oscars - it's certainly not the best film I've seen at the cinema in the last 12 months.

I was in John Lewis at the weekend and Avatar was playing on some turbo-charged f*ck-off HD TV. It looked amazing. Way better than it looked in 3D at my local cinema. What a rip-off. It almost made me want to watch it again to see the effects properly, until I remembered how weak the story is. It's a pity my local cinema can't be arsed to clean the screens and show films in focus.

Tru dat. The visuals are amazing.


It seems to be a common problem with CG films though isn't it. As I never tire of repeating, when watching a documentary about the animation used in Attack of the Clones, and they were going on and on about the rendering and the programming used to make sure that Yoda's hair moved realistically in the wind, and he moved like the old puppet to preserve continuity; you're sitting there thinking "shoulda spent some of that time, money and effort on the script instead..."

hurrah! the special edition is here, with nearly 9 minutes of extra footage, which is great, because my one criticism of avatar would be that it wasn't quite long enough....


trailer here, maybe:

Jeezus - life's too short to sit through all that again. And it's so frigging expensive to watch 3D at the cinema.


I would be delighted if nobody goes to see it. Unfortunately I doubt that will happen.

i gave 3d another go this afternoon. went to see toy story 3.


i hadn't really seen or read much about it, but i had heard a general buzz that it was the best of the toy story films. i have to agree - it's a great film: really enjoyable, funny, heartwarming and a bit of an emotional rollercoaster at times if, like me, you get a bit weepy watching animation. it's everything you expect from pixar really.


what was a pleasant surprise for me was the 3d. it's only the second film i've seen in 3d at the cinema, i had wanted to see up in 3d but couldn't get it locally at the time. unlike avatar, here the 3d was mostly used much more subtly and did enhance the experience, not distract you. it was lovely.


as you would expect, the supporting cartoon was good also and had a very clever use of traditional animation and cgi/3d.


i think you could probably enjoy toy story 3 without the 3d but it's worth seeing in 3d if you get the chance, just to see how 3d can be done, in a great film with engaging characters, sharp script, innovative set-pieces and real heart.

after bleeping on about avatar over a year ago, i finally watched it the other night and have to say, i enjoyed it. yes its predictable but its entertaining, and i stand by my initial comments about the navi women, they're hot. imagine if they were real, they could lower you into the bath and bathe you with ease.


i do not think i'm alone on this, look at this poor girl, no doubt her twisted boyfriend has forced into it:





and this one, clearly gagging for navi action:
