Jesus Christ, enough with the stupid shit. The world building in Avatar is trite and unimaginative nonsense about on par with the "Orks killed my parents so I hate them" origin story that every 12 year old comes up when they make their first rpg character ever, fuck off with your noble savage bullshit.

I mean its either this, or he teams up with Eli Roth to make The Blue Inferno- i don't see any middle ground whatsoever.

Fact #7
From an empirical viewpoint, the problem with Free Will (and causality) is reconciling determinism and freedom to make sense of morality.

Avatar 3 is going to single-handedly cause hyperinflation and tank the global economy.
Tickets to Avatar 3 and old Blu-Ray copies of Avatar + Avatar 2 will become the de facto currency for what few nation states remain after the massive financial crisis and resultant global wars.

his cryptic comment about being inspired to 'aim even higher' has me worried - what's Jim planning? Avatar-inspired nation state?

Piranha, Abyss, Titanic. This motherfucker is always going back to the ocean. You think his parents didn’t let him piss in the beach as a kid.

I haven't seen this trailer yet but I have a sense of it

the footage I saw in the theater after the re-release looked awesome (technically) buuuuut

all this family drama stuff and another batch of "fish out of water" storyline (now an entire family = strangers in a strange land?) and all the BLUE ... none of this has me excited for any concrete reasons

yeah i think it'll probably play a lot like force awakens did in contrast to star wars. a lot of the same beats and themes as the first avatar and all that only waterworld'd

i think i hate marvel/dc/star wars enough now that this looks fundamentally sick as hell to me

If this is successful I hope it inspires a shift away from comic book and reboot franchise stuff... somehow...

with 13 years between the avatar movies, i think we’ll all be dead before the greater pandora universe (GPU) has to resort to endless multiverse plotting to keep things afloat

so that’s good!

apologies if I already posted about this

but

the HFR stuff in the remaster was only selectively applied (certain moments), and it worked perfectly IMO. the only time I "noticed" it is via the absence of flip-book vibes that were apparent with really fast motion / panning in the original release. they basically turned it on only when was needed to prevent visual issues.

the new movie apparently does the same, but there were some moments in the preview footage (which followed the re-release) where it looked slightly shitty/uncanny (like the motion-smoothing on TVs, classic soap-opera effect). rest assured that the entire movie will not be in HFR, at least.
