:lol:
such a shame that Cameron hijacked their title - I've been told the cartoon is actually quite good.


By the way, while I'm here, can I just say - who the FUCK is buying Avatard on DVD or Blu-Ray? Do they know it's not the 3D version? Even the TV advert for 3D TVs that shows Avatar has a disclaimer saying that the movie is NOT in 3D!
:roll:

Seriously, seeing it in 3D in a cinema should be the only option. It's visual candy.

She looked really good in Spider-Man 3, and is arguably the only good thing about it.

Terrible. I know I didn't see it on the big screen or in 3D, but contrary to Hollywood opinion, these things don't make something bad, good.

Only Chris Jericho or tits can pull that off.

The same amount of CGI but less plot than a videogame and way too long. Signposted and formulaic from the get go. You all already know this.

But after well, years of hype now (and the very amusing reads on 'white guilt'), I just can't see what the big deal is. Dull as dogshit and twice as rancid.

Editor's note: Review would just be "didn't like it" if it weren't the highest grossing film ever.
'the fuck did I do?
