Default Re: AVATAR--I have the sneaking suspicion....

The #1 movie on Monday 2/8, Tuesday 2/9, Wednesday 2/10, and Thursday 2/11?

AVATAR. Totally beating DEAR JOHN and all of the other movies.

It can not be stopped!

While searching for the magazine with the 10 Best Unproduced Scripts List... I found a 10 Best Unproduced Scripts list from 2000 that listed AVATAR! It was one of the top scripts on that decade old version of the Black List! That should give some perspective on whether the film is all FX, since it made that list when it was only a screenplay. (That 2000 list was discussed here in 2007)

PS: The AVATAR scriptment also made Empire Magazine Ten Best Unproduced Script list.

The scriptment was amazing. Reading it and visualizing what could have been always gets me pissed.

You've seen it in 3D, what about 4D:

Meanwhile Landau acknowledged that “Avatar” has been released in Korea in 4D – an experimental process that is similar to some theme park rides, in which the theater seats shake, and physical sensations like wind and water simulate the experience on screen.

“Three months ago Fox Korea came to us and asked us to support this experiment,” he said. “The response came back, and it was better than they thought (it would be).”

Stay tuned for more dimensional movie experiences.

And if anyone is still counting it's half way to $2.4 billion now:

(Yes, I know there are films with a foot in each camp, and that is what I am trying to encourage with my roving death squads.)

I have to decide - do I want to see a good movie tonight or an entertaining movie? And I do not want to make that decision! I want to eat food that tastes good and is good for me.
In other words, why can't Terminator 4 be as good as Terminator 1 and 2? Why can't The Matrix 2 and 3 be as good as the original? Why can't Pirates 2 and 3 be as good as the original? Why can't Dreamworks animated films be as good as Pixar's? Why can't Spiderman 3 be as good as 1 and 2?

I don't think it has as much to do with the lack of talent as it does the lack of giving a s*** about product quality.

Hollywood doesn't want to make good movies. They want to make money.

What the suits fail to realize is that good movies typically make MORE MONEY than the bad ones (unless we're talking about bad sequels to good originals).
