Hollywood gave a shit load of money to James Cameron to make a movie about Cowboys and Indians on a planet where the universal laws of physics seem not to apply — and a poor legless Marine who they won’t give new legs to until he goes and fucks up some blue Indians’ shit and steals some expensive rocks. Something about this movie seems far-fetched, but I just can’t put my finger on it. I have no idea really, this film could be the next ‘Star Wars’ and you just can’t get wrapped into the story with what is offered in the trailer, but I kind of doubt it. They promise that after ‘Avatar’, “Movies will never be the same.” I have no idea what that means. Do they mean nobody is ever going to risk a high budget film after this causes many people to loose their shirts, jobs and parking spaces? Does it mean that nobody will go see movies anymore because they ripped their eyes out after seeing ‘Avatar’? Does it mean that all movies will now take place on other planets where we try to kill ugly blue things? And they are REALLY ugly. This is probably the worst character creation since Jar Jar Binks — the Na’vi are the most unattractive and awkward looking creatures you have ever seen. They are an odd human-cat-elf-boo berry mash up that leave you wanting to not look at them, and also not care if they live or not, which I suppose would lead you to not give a shit about this movie. All and all I give it five stars, two thumbs up and a big hooray. And for my fellow designer friends, they used Papyrus as the base for the title treatment, enough said. I guess I should actually watch the movie now hoping I am wrong about all of this, but the title treatment still blows.

Is it just me, or does ‘Avatar’ look terrible and they are trying too hard to make it not look terrible
