Why the fuck did they cut so many scenes that were crucial for various characters?
>> No. 21122
Japan liked Avatar?
>> No. 21131

Apparently there's a 2hr 40min cap on Imax showings so they had to focus more on plot development than character development.

For those who have seen all the cut scenes: is the Uniltaron scene in there? The one where they shoot Jake up with that scorpion and he starts tripping?

Why the fuck is Cameron making a sequel anyway?

I mean, it was a pretty self contained story. I really don't see how they could continue with it.
Whats next Titanic 2?

Hell, if all he wants is money he should just make Battle Angel already, or really anything else at this point.

From what I heard, he's still trying to decide if he really wants to do Alita or not.

I'm watching the deleted scenes right now, haven't seen that yet.


Apparently Norm and Trudy start shacking up when they're staying in the Hallelujah Mountains, consequently Norm mellows out. I don't know whether to like this or not care. It's nice to see Rodriguez with her hair down anyway.
>> No. 21164
Sage for double post.
Yes, his ritual for becoming a man involves ingesting a worm that feeds off of the home tree, and then being stung by some scorpion/centipede like creature. As Jake's body spasms his mind travels upward through the tree, as if he is seeing the neural network of the Na'vi. He then finds himself standing on a cliff, seeing Turok, and then he sees a vision of the forest decimated, burning and in ashes, as if the mining company already came through and won. He wakes up and emerges as part of the people.
>> No. 21184
>still trying to decide if he really wants to do Alita or not.

>> No. 21185
My feelings exactly. I'll have to ask my cousin if he said anything else on the subject, but I think he's still waffling because it's a fanboy project and might not do too well in theaters.

With all the "talk" about it being a ripoff, what will happen when other moviemakers start to rip Avatar off?

Well, I guess it depends on how they rip it off, or rather what aspect of the movie they imitate.

You certainly couldn't say a similar story was a rip off.

Oh wait, I meant Knock off, not rip off. (Half of that time, I think...)

Just watched it the other day. It was way better than I expected.

The only problem I had is I felt they made the "villain" way too sympathetic and attractive. I was on his side for pretty much the whole movie. Also I kind of wish Weaver had a bigger role.
>> No. 22333
Really? I thought he came off as too much of an atypical mustache twirling douche bad guy.
>> No. 22337
Same here, though at least I could respect his tenacity (my nickname for him was "Sargent Killfuck"). It was the weasel-dicked corporate guy who really got on my nerves in terms of one-dimensional villainy.

Avatar, as a whole, is as subtle and intelligent as a brick to the face.
>> No. 22338
I get what he is saying. For most of the movie Quaritch is just a guy doing an incredibly tough job as efficently as the circumstances allow. The guy does take care of the people under his command, and it's telling that he was about to honor his part of the deal with Jake. Even when he commanded the destruction of the Hometree, and came up as a callous asshole, he is still technically following orders, plus the whole situation is in big part Jake's fault. He did NOTHING of what he was sent to do, that is to establish a diplomatic solution, and instead spent all the time having fun with the natives.
>> No. 22349
...I have a hunch, now it's only a hunch, that he was being sarcastic.
>> No. 22356
If you watch the extended version there are more scenes that actually put the corporate guy in a better light, leaving Quatrich to look like an overbearing asshole.
>> No. 22372
Yeah, for a hero, Jake is a huge dumbass.

Also the local tv-guild review of Avatar gave it 4 out of 5 stars.
"James Camerons megasuccé. Under det Oscarsbelönade utanpåverket - fantastisk cinematografi, makalösa visuella effekter - är det en skön traditionell matinéfilm, fast med extra alla."

WHY DID YOU NOT USE THIS! (I know its younger then the script, thank you)
LRADs must be even more effective if its true the Na'vi have better hearing then us.

This commentator sums up some of my feelings rather nicely.

>My problem with the movie had nothing to do with what it drew or did not draw inspiration from.
>My biggest problem was the lack of shades of gray. There was so much potential they could have had by making some Na'vi as bad as the military/corporation, and some of the military/corporation (not low ranking protagonists) as good as the Na'vi.

>How much better would the movie have been if the corporate CEO wasn't just a pint sized egomaniac, but conflicted the whole time. What if he felt that, no matter what, human interests should be first and humans presently were dying from lack of resources. But struggled with every decision?

>Or what if the military commander was a loving family man with a wife, children and grandchildren on Earth, but jaded by his time on Pandora where he watches his soldiers and friends dying every day while the Na'vi sit comfortably in isolation.

>What if, until this point, the Na'vi clans were involved in bloody wars for many things including territory and resource disputes (just like the real Native Americans). What if one of the clans was interested in modernizing and wanted to barter with the humans for technology and weapons?

>Too much potential was wasted on an ultimately pretty shallow plot. That doesn't mean I don't like the movie. It wasn't just pretty, it set visual milestones. And it inspired me to think about the world in deeper terms, even if it wasn't portrayed that way.
>> No. 23791

yea its a formulated thing, its what Hollywood does and its the problem that has started biting them in the ass for about the past 10-15 years Ferngully, Atlantis the Lost Empire (Fuck so many Similarities between this and Atlantis during the second and third acts its fucking horrible.. it almost gets beat for beat on tone but not quite) Dances with Wolves..fuck ton of Generic Solider Films..cept Soldier. 3D may be the shit at the moment but its not going to carry them unless they fix the creative sinkhole they have let themselves become. Pretty does good for box office but it doesn't give that many moments that people will be quoting from heart years from now.
