    Can they just cancel it?

    Seriously, Avatar was fucking awful. It was a nothing but a cinematography snob's jerk-off material.

    I don't have a problem with cinematography. Its a crucial part of filmmaking, but this is just cinematography.

    The first Avatar was basically Transformers shot by a pretentious art-school filmmaker.

    0-1: A game whose very existence is abhorrent to all things creative and intelligent.
    2-4: A just plain bad game.
    5-6: A game that has alot of mistakes, but is atleast playable and has some enjoyable sections. Good for a rent.
    7: An average game, should be played at some point
    8: A good game, should buy at some point
    9: A great game, day-one purchase
    10: A game that goes above and beyond the generation, its transcendent.

    That's what I felt when I read his Interview in the December 2009 issue of Playboy.

    I'm more so attacking the snobby "oh the story in this is awful and it offends my intellect to watch" attitude.

    It's the same snobby attitude hanging over "non-original" games.

    I was entertained by Avatar not because of the story but because of how well it was put together and presented. Therefor it's a good movie because it entertained me.

    Not in anyway suggesting that a compelling story doesn't detract from entertainment value, I've enjoyed such movies as well.

    If you want to see a film with stunning Cinematography and a compelling storyline/acting/directing/score etc. Just watch the Fountain...and yes Aronofsky did all of his effects with practical effects (and not cg)

    AWESOME SIG AND AVY BY ALISON CHECK OUT HER WORK HERE

    I couldn't agree with this statement more, not only that but I think that film does the job of Tree of Life better than Tree of Life did.

    It hits all the right notes and, although it focuses a bit too much on her loss in my opinion, is a great film.
