Cameron planning Avatar triology
Dont know if this has been posted but for those who like more good news for you avatar fans, as for those of you that hate well look like you got bad news coming your way. I have not seen the movie yet so I cant say whether I like it or not.
And I am still confused as to why this is a box office juggernaut. People say "It's the top grossing film of all time!!!" and I ask, why? I don't get it.
And then I look at the reviews, and most of the reviews are uniform. Cheesy story, but awesome visual effects!!! Since when do movie reviewers overlook weaknesses in a film due to special effects? The answer is, they ****ing don't. Why make exceptions for this movie? The massive hype campaign?
How did a movie, with nothing going for it except for visual effects, win best picture at the golden globes?

I ma sure even if they adjust for inflation it would be around 1.5-1.6 billion which would rank it up there as well. Is just a guess, but it could not be that much further down.
Pretty sure that's just the US though.
That's a better way to measure, because it isn't influenced by ticket price.

You also have to look at the period in time this movies were released.
I just find it hard to belief that GWTW would of made as much money had it come out in this time period,
What does this movie have going for it besides special effects? All of the important elements (story, dialogue, characters) are extremely cheesy.
Plus. I think the pro-"green" stance of the movie helped it with the Hollywood Foreign Press.
So what?Originally Posted by Sick Of It All
It sold more tickets than any other movie ever. Personally, I don't care for it, but still.

This is true in every way!

^I agree with you on the Avatar stuff, but don't make the mistake that Beyonce is pre-packaged crap. She's MILES better than the large majority of singers on the air now.
Right. But I'm saying they were wrong to give it Best Picture.Originally Posted by spliff(TONE)
I defend that claim by saying that the only thing Avatar has going for it is special effects. If you'd like to disagree, then please espouse the virtues of Avatar.
But I get the sense that you are taking the more bull **** route of "The Golden Globes don't even matter anyway" which I'd tend to agree with. But I didn't say they mattered. I just said they were wrong to award Avatar with best picture.
No. I see you trying to convince people that Avatar isn't ****.Originally Posted by spliff(TONE)

But they had fewer new releases back then. It wasn't like another major movie was trying to knock it off a week later.

gcoll, it's obvious that you disliked the movie, but to say the Golden Globes were totally wrong is a bit extreme. The voters know 'a tad' more about movies than the general public. I agree, and I'm sure a large portion of the public does, that it wasn't an amazing story, but it was good enough for most of us (and the Hollywood Foreign Press).
