ok seriously how can u say avatar was not the best movie of the year?
inglouroious basterds was better
what did u not like about Avatar
it isn't that i didn't like something about it, i just think that basterds was a better film
better cinematography, lighting, editing, and many other technical aspects, as well as an original story. I've seen avatar in theaters three times, yet it hasn't affected me as much as avatar. Avatar had a timeless and well told story, but I have seen it before, and special effects can only carry a movie so far, I'm more of an organic and conventional effects person anyways, so the visuals couldn't make the movie for me by themselves. Basterds was just better, but Avatar was still a good film
no way... Bastards was to much like Valcary... plus Technical aspects? no way.. avatar had way more technical aspects that Bastards... plu Yes avatart was not an original story line... but the way Cameron protraide everyone was perfect.. plus all the subtle imagray and lines in the movie added to it immensely.. It was a great movie if u want a good action movie, its a good romance movie and its a powerful movie... if u want to see a movie no matter what u r going to see.. Avatar fits the bill
plu its made the most in box offices only beaten by titanic... which is a major feat for any movie...
i disagree, did you see Basterds? comparing it to that shitstain Operation Valcary is an outrage, seeing as Basterds is an entirely original story and both feature incredibly different assassination attempts, one using Tom Cruise as the only reason to see the film, while Basterds provides excellent acting from every character and wonderfully balances different storylines. When talking about CG, Avatar outdoes Basterds, but by technica aspects I mean lighting, camera, sound, and editing, THE MAIN CRITERIA FOR FILMMAKING, and Basterds does it perfect, Avatar is filmed entirely in front of a greenscreen, so any of these variables can be computer enhanced to perfection.
True filmmaking requires skill and precision, which although James Cameron does, Tarantino did without the means of computer enhancement. Money doesn't make a film, Citizen Cane was a box-office disaster when it came out, but its the greatest film of all time. Avatar was not as good as Basterds and you can't win a movie argument against me. Avatar was a great film, but in ten or fifteen years we'll think of it as a turning point for CG in cinema, while Basterds will be a classic!
you're writing a lot there
don't even try to beat me on this
nope... how many people have seen basterds? how many people have seen Avatar.. Avatar will be a classic.. and Cameron used the gree screen yes.. but he didnt just use computers to make the fill and enhance the viewing... get the facts about the movie making.. they didn't just sue CGI they used the actors... it was like gollum from lord of the rings... all the filming was done by hand using a new camera developed my cameon himself... he desinged a camera to work kind of like a stereo song... with some parts in one speaker and other sounds in another to give u a better viewing.. The actors where used for every bit.. all the expressions and emotions are all the actors.. they only used the CGI to bring avatar to life..
he didnt enhance at all.. all the filming of pandora and the plants and everything was done by hand... technology was used only to create the Navi... Cameron did all the lighting and everything by hand.. before u debate a movie i recommend getting the facts on how the movie was actually made.. because technology was only used to creat one aspect of Avatar.. not the whole thing.. If u have ever read any bios by James Cameron.. he is against using technology to enhance and to digitalize everything.. in his movies where ever real actors can be used... they were used...
and i will try and beat u... becuase Avatar was my favorite movie...
well the host is my favorite movie, and its a billion times better than avatar
in a million years
look i read your review
other things used CG, the mechs, the creatures of pandora, and THE PLANTS AND FAUNA.
but i disagree
the planet yes
not the plants though
the creaatures yes.. but they used 100 different sketch artist to get the best possible creatures.. if they existed they would be exactly as they r in the movie...
everything.. gravity physics
was taken into account
iits 100 percent plossible
thats what makes it so unique
also seriously... we both have different tastes in movie
so no matter what we r gonna disagree
lol shut down
u keep typing
Avatar was good and I praise how good it was, but you need to understand that it wasn't as good of a film as Basterds. Avatar is a technical achievement and is very good. the world of pandora was not an organic set, it was made with a computer. AND NOW YOU AGREE WITH ME.
i'm still going
u dont know the facts on how it was made
there for this entire debate was pointless
becuase we both have different tastes in movies we enjoy
WAIT ONE FUCKING SECOND MY POST WAS WAY TOO LONG!!!!!!!~!!!!!!
Cameron is a great director and did unique things, I followed everythig about this movie since last fuckin january!!!!! I cummed my shorts when I saw the first trailer and immediately phoned all of my friends! You can't outdue me becuase I am the ultimate Cameron fan and know my shit. So don't be telling me that I don't know my crap because I saw creature designs back in march when they were leaked on some guys blog. Avatar was a great film and I just want you to understand that it was not as good of a film as you think it is.
Technical wizardry is the main object of our societies values, but classic organic filmmaking is the best possible forkm of filmmaking. I could debate that everything Cameron utilized was already widely available in video games, especially a physics engine to create actual gravity, so don't give me that terrible argument. Everything from Cameron's film is borrowed from other literature and films, and not just plot, I can name some Phil Dick stories like Screamers that resemble similar planets, right to the fauna. And it is a horrible shame that Avatar is the best film you've ever seen. Try watching some films from the 30's to the 70's , because I can name thousands of movies better than Avatar. I could even name thirteen better than it this decade, without accounting for the thousands of movies I have seen this last ten years.
Avatar does not blend genres well at all, it fails with the romance because the Na'vi appear lifeless, mostly because of the eyes and the 'uncanny valley' effect, which honestly creeps me out a little. The movie works as a great action movie, but I prefer to see REAL explosions rather than computer generated ones.
BTW I agree that we can't change eachother's opinions, but try to watch more movies now buddy, because theres a lot more that are better than Avatar.
and Basterds as well
nope war movie r way over done
ugh... your entire argument makes me angry...
and avatar wasn't a war movie
your arguement makes me angry too
i know im saying bastards is a war movie
and war movies r way over done
i meant to have a question mark there, saying that the last half of AVATAR is a FUCKING WAR FILM
dont respond.. this is stupid...
lets agree to disagree, and also agree that i'm right
whatever, I know that more people will always care about my opinion over yours, SO THERE!
i dont care... so there
And every movie on your best of the year list was terrible.
not all bad movies but bad choices
i could say the same
and nic cage is a bad actor
and a billion other things
but i wont.. becuase like i said my opinion
and you won't say the same about mine because i had good arguments
but whatever, i'm done
this is really gay
you're really gay
avatar was gay
nope and nope
u wouldent see it three times if it was gay
and dont respond
in the literal term gay, like how its a furries dream, cameron even stating himself that some fur-art inspired him. Which makes Cameron gross and a faggot
i just responded
with a critically intelligent response
Shut the fuck up u just said u were Cameron's biggest fan!!!
plz just shut
and dont respond
i am camerons biggest fan, but that doesn't mean that furfaggotry is cool
this conversation degraded quickly, and for that i apologize
have you seen any other good movies lately?
did you read my review
was i right?
and yes its true
honestly though i think we all knew it was gonna be crap
the trailers actually made it look decent, i knew it would be stupid, but it could have been a good action movie, otherwise we wouldn't have gone
now Paranormal activity...
paranormal activity was good the first time
now Paranormal activity..
not the second
ending was gay
only the first time
just like knowing
knowing was bad all aroun
ehh... it could be argued but... yah ot was runined
so so so shitty, next you'll say 2012 was a good film
did u read my review?
i hated it
where is this review?
it was like 1000 ways to die the movie
in your best movie thing
because i remember it being there, which makes me think you thought it was A BEST MOVIE, silly
i said not in order
ORDER shouldn't matter, the fact that it was there was BAD. make a worst movie list and put it there, but don't have it on your best unless you only saw ten movies last year
ive seen alomst every movie that has come out
exept twilight 2
wasn't that on your list though?>
and it was shitty so avoid it
also i wrote that list at 2 in the morning...
i wrote mine at four in the morning and i didn't complain, i was up writing it for six hours, then did my decade list all day the next day.
i sacrifice a lot for my reviews and already have twelve up, not including my decade and year list
u pride your self on movie reviews though
i watch movie to enjoy them... to see them meaning...
not to write bout them,
i watch movies for both of those purposes and watch at least two movies a day in order to get a better appreciation for film. don't you dare say that i watch movies just to write reviews because they mean so much more to me than that, and if you were to say that to my face i could hit you. I put so much effort into the reviews and i honestly know what i'm talking about so don't say that you're the bigger movie guy because I am going to always be the biggest movie guy people know. I breathe movies.
I live movies. Christ, I want to do movies for the rest of my life. Make them, review them, watch them. I just want movies forever. So don't tell me that you enjoying and looking for meaning in films are better than my reviews, because from reading them you should be able to understand that I am able to do those things and still be able to write lots of golden information about them too. Some of my friends have read my reviews as a basis for what movies to see, while I doubt that anyone you know will choose the movies they see regarding your taste. We have different tastes in film, but mine is more respected and much broader.
u just wrote what i could sum up in two word... respect and quality
which i have more of than you
but my passion leaks through in the fact that I wrote that much just to prove that I care more than you about movies
im just saying turner when it comes to some movies... u and i may have different opinions...
i agree that everyone has different opinions, but you attacked my passion, so i got pissed off
trust me i know
well attacked and questiond can be argued as the same thing
questioned? you flat out stated that I "pride myself on the reviews" while you "watch movies to enjoy them and find meaning". Which I believed implied that my reviews had no substance and you were a better critic than me
but in all honesty I'm done with this stupid conversation. I know that i'm in the right. I know what movies mean to me. I am disagreeing with you and I know that I'm right. Goodbye. Come talk again after you see another movie with great special effects and tell me once again that its the greatest movie ever.
no i mean i watch movie to enjoy them... an with movies like legion and avatart to see the meaning and what the director was really trieing to imply in his movies... i dont watch to write i watch to figure out... and i will
you have one second to respond before i ditch
but in another life time
seeya, although i feel the need to respond and call you an idiot, which i will quickly: I watch to figure out, then write to share my knowledge with others so they can also see the meaning in films, hopefully training them to do it themselves later.
