Steve Rose on film - Avatar
Break out the blue paint! Will James Cameron’s Avatar sequel tank?
Avatar did not impress me when I saw it in underwhelming and dim 3D at the Scotiabank Theatre here in Toronto, so my anticipation for more Avatar is 1D.
James Cameron's highly successful first in a now chain gang is the most recent narrative film I've seen in a movie house. Did he take the popcorn out of my movies? Perhaps not, but he took the money out of my wallet and gave back to me 162 minutes that I'll never get back.
Thanks for your enlightening piece, Mr Rose.
Good honest cynicism. Very refreshing.
But you're right. We cannot count Cameron out.
