Making the circles online:
This made me laugh, especially because a couple of these crossed my mind during the movie.
Not to bag on Avatar; I’m a sucker for James Cameron’s particular brand of insanity. The guy’s a madman, but he can sure create spectacle on an unheard-of scale. I picture George Lucas weeping in a closet somewhere, grinding his teeth. I appreciate world-building in any medium, and Cameron’s world feels alive in a way that the prequels never did. And even if its characters are Cameron-boilerplate, at least it had characters – something some other blockbuster directors tend to leave out. Plus, Sigourney Weaver. So it’s all good.
In other news, I’ve returned from the wilderness. Expect posting to resume… well, now. Hope everyone had a good holiday.
