Chad - The messege is fine man, feel free to talk about whatever here.  I do the same sometimes cause the comment boxes on the profiles were never fixed and I can't seem to find the "send messege" button on the profiles either.  Anyway, glad you liked the film cause it really was excellent.

Now on to the people talking about ripping off.  Check this out, Up in the Air another film that is getting tons of critical praise and Oscar buzz, you know what I can say about that film?  It's Thank You For Smoking in an Airplane! See I can do it too, I can link films to other films.  My advice just stop watching movies until this new idea that has never been seen or heard of before pops up.

Anyone who has ever played World of Warcraft online knows that Camerons "wonderful vision" is no such thing.  Not a lot of people have talked about it but the colors and surroundings to the flying mountains are all in that game years before he started working on his movie.  I highly doubt that's a coincidence. 

I realize most people that are seeing his movie have no idea about the online game but it should be noted and if you need proof and you want to visit Pandora, play WOW and see for yourself. 

I'm curious where he is going to take the sequel...I think it was just a stand alone movie but too much money to be made here.

Hobbs - I always thought it was Cameron's love for the sea where he got the bioluminescence ideas for Pandora.

Ok i have never seen this commented on. But the shots with people seem blurry. i went a second time to make sure it wasnt my seat. First time i sat in the last seat in the row top. Second time right centre.

Still I noticed that in the scenes with real actor shots were out of focus. There was no mistake. background actors were almost alway a little blurry. The scenes from the animated part were always in focus. Is this a flaw withe cameras, intentional, or bad shooting?

Hobbs 1/21/2010 7:35:52 AM

That's very well possible hanso...I would have admit that and be a bit more open minded....but trust me, visit the Elf lands in WOW to see the Forest that looks almost exactly like Pandora or the expansion to see the floating mountains. 

It is even possible WOW got their ideas from the same place Cam did.

 Great job Hanso!  Love your articles and one reason to hope for an AVATAR squeal is getting to read more of our articles!

To your point about wanting to more about the Na'vi - I wanted to know more about their braids.  Right after we're told: "They are very hard to kill" I started to think what would happen if they lost their braids.  Would they lose their connection to their world? How would they be treated by their tribe if they lost their braid?  That was one question that's been nagging at me since I saw the movie and would love to get more info on.

Again, well done sir.

I agree with ChadD. Some of the great stories of all time are the universal myths and legends coming from archetypes in the back of everybody's head. They can and should be re-told over and over again. What makes the telling good or bad is the execution. People are going to disagree on that but like Hanso said, people are paying with their benjamins so he must be doing something right.

Hanso, another fun article. Often I don't like alot of personalty to come through in my straight info but these list articles kind of call for it and you do it great. You're agressive with the opinion but never mean spirited (like those awful Cracked list articles). Either here or in your regular comments you are an enjoyable read.

"My advice just stop watching movies until this new idea that has never been seen or heard of before pops up."  -  well said, Hanso!

Re: the inspiration for Pandora - have you guys seen the most recent issue of Entertainment Weekly?  (yeah, I usually avoid that magazine like the plague, but $8 for a yearly subscription can't be beat!) ... anyway, there's a little interview with James Cameron where he talks about the flying mountains of Pandora being inspired by smoking weed and looking at Yes album covers! 

Yeah, I can totally see that.
