thank you for posting that! I had watched that video after I saw someone post one on the Cats soundtrack (same channel). that guy's cats video was better IMO. he calls out tons of insane shit that happened with the music of Cats... like... they actually recorded it live on set. and they let the actors set the meter. like... their whims were the click track. a completely hellish way to make music. I guess there's a song where rebel wilson sang only the MIDDLE line from a 3-part harmony, which is a bold choice to say the least. I don't have the ear for this sort of thing so I can't notice anything beyond "this is not great". I couldn't believe he didn't talk about the audio quality - the orchestra sounded so cheap-synth-y, and not in a fun way. anyway... the cats video is recommended!

I totally appreciated the avatar music breakdown, but I think I ultimately disagree with the ultimate conclusion that what happened is "ironic". the (1) white savior & noble savage stuff in avatar has its shittiness, and the (2) way that they THOUGHT ABOUT making a super weird world-music soundtrack - but then didn't - that's also frustrating. but I don't think there's a conceptual connection between those two things. cameron did (1) because he's trying to tell a moralistic, allegorical story to a white audience, and he did (2) because he wants his movie to make its money back.

and on that note... breaking news!

. ; RANDOM THOUGHTS ; .

I kinda think it's 'cheating' or fake to re-release a movie 10 years later and then claim to have overtaken the competetor's record... but both Titanic and Endgame used re-releases to set their records, so I guess it's just baked into this particular competition.

I'm really fascinated by the Endgame v Cameron cold war. Do you think James Cameron could get access to a nuclear weapon if he wanted to? Some other world-threatening technology? How far would he be willing to go, and whose safety would he be willing to compromise to accomplish his goals? What if he becomes a James Bond styled supervillain?

I think that Disney has absolutely no shot at replicating the Endgame box office, at least not with the Marvel franchise. If Cameron wants to re-take the title, maybe Avatar isn't the right vehicle? After Titanic and Avatar, what if he unleashes a third assault? Completely different movie!

Whoever wins, I will lose 3 hours of my life. That's all I know.

ALSO just realized that Avatar 2 is almost certainly going to release in 3D, and that I'll go see it in 3D to get the 'real' experience... which will hopefully be the last 3D movie I ever see, because the only good 3D movie I've ever seen was Avatar. Those glasses are annoying and it's too expensive.

next movie is apparently 15 petabytes - about 15 million gigs

that’s plenty of space for a nascent skynet to be gestating somewhere in there, just by chance
because we were
the first movie production in history to hit
one petabyte of storage.
And now we're at 15.
And going strong.
And the project doesn't end until 2028.
So just everything is up,
