re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

I'm not too excited about this movie even after seeing the special effects porn preview a handful of times already. Starwars meets the Smurfs, yawn...

I probably won't be seeing it in theatres. I doubt I see it on DVD either. Maybe on TV a few years down the road.

Doesnt mean they think Avatar will tank, they are just being cautious.
how has nobody responded to this bull**** reasoning yet

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

I still don't think it looks that great from the trailers, but maybe I spoke too soon.

Early word is Avatar might be another Cameron hit after all...

http://www.hitfix.com/blogs/2008-12-...aga-for-avatar

Quote:
Over a decade ago James Cameron was battling media reports that his delayed and pricey epic "Titanic" was a creative disaster and ready to sink at the box office like the famed ocean liner whose story it dramatically re-told. Instead, the Paramount Pictures/20th Century Fox production became a cultural phenomenon and grossed over $1.8 billion worldwide and won a staggering 11 Academy Awards including the prestigious Best Picture trophy. In less than two weeks, Cameron returns to the big screen with his almost as hyped Sci-Fi motion capture adventure "Avatar." The film has sparked heated debate among genre fans and everyday moviegoers as well as finding itself under the microscope of the testy entertainment media. Factoring in the substantial negative responses to the IMAX and Comic-Con previews, many in the industry were coming to the conclusion that "Avatar" would be a nice hit (i.e., $200 million plus in the U.S.) at best thanks to some nicely cut TV spots. You'd be hard pressed to find anyone who expected the picture to stand alongside the critical favorites of Cameron's previous work. Boy can things change after one screening in Hollywood. No one who has seen the film is allowed to go on record [and this writer has not seen the film himself], but word has leaked that Fox's gamble may have paid off and "Avatar" may be way more than meets the eye.

After a screening yesterday morning, very reliable sources have told Awards Campaign that the HFPA were incredibly positive about Cameron's latest endeavor. In fact, it's now very likely to be nominated in both the Best Picture - Drama and Best Director categories when the Golden Globe nominations are announced next Tuesday. This was almost unthinkable a week ago and may push expected Globe nominees such as "The Hurt Locker" or "An Education" out of the Best Picture - Drama race. Additionally, this could (emphasis on "could") find "Avatar" seriously being considered for one of the ten nominees for Oscar's Best Picture trophy -- especially considering the 8-10th slots hardly seem secure at this point in the race.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

Unlike other films that I commented on, I actually wanted this one to do well being a fan of sci-fi and all that good stuff, but the first few trailers released were quite disappointing.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

instead of giving them a bailout, the government gave 20th Cent. Fox the rights to Alvin & Chipmunks to keep them afloat during these turbulent times.

Didn't you know that movies do better during crappy economic times? The movie industry is set to break $10billion this year.
