Re: “Planet of the Grosses

You say "and then we begin to think about things like plot, pacing, and dialogue...And it's there that Avatar begins to unravel. The unraveling begins slowly, like a hole in your sock on a rainy day, but it grows quickly.'

Really?

I thought the plot was really well done. The pacing was just right for a such a long flick. And the dialog works for a fantasy movie like this. If the characters started speaking like they were in Pulp Fiction or The Departed it would have been harder to hold the suspension of disbelief that we're on an other world 140 years in the future.

As for the plot. It was a little trite but a strong Cambellian vein runs through it and infers a timeless quality to the story. The whole dream world verses reality dialectic was cool too.

So what the hell is your problem Kelly Vance? James Cameron busted his butt making a movie that tries to immerse an audience in another world, mood and time. And he does it. You, on the other hand, don't have the creativity to play anyting other than the cliched role of callused critic. Go back to your bridge troll.
