    Default How mad will u be if Avatar takes the Best Picture

    Not that I really give much of a hoot about the awards, but after all the hype about Avatar ushering a new era of filming, the rampant ads splashed practically everywhere, cummulating to my free ticket entry for the 3D Avatar viewing. Visuals and audio was an orgasmic feast, but it did not do much redeemption to the otherwise paper thin story, nothing much to marvel about.

    What are ur thoughts

    .. anyway i will go get a copy when the dvd comes out and rewatch with my parents a later date ..

    As much as when Titanic took the Best Picture.

    What's wrong with Avatar? I liked the movie a lot.

    gone are the days when you had limited CG, so you had to concentrate on a good storyline and great acting.

    now it's just the audience being entertained with a visual feast , whether it is eye candy, or hot fast action....

    I think Hurt Locker is so much a better movie.

    Awww... sayang. Okay I try to look for "alternative copies" from JB for you ok? What is the price of movie tickets now anyway? The last time I watched at the turn of the century, was nine quid.

    I've been waiting for that movie ever since I finished it in err... themoviespoiler (yes, most of the time, I finish a movie before I've even started)
    I didn't realize until lately that it was directed by Cameron's ex-spouse.

    Apparently Dr. Mahathir's IQ score dropped by ten fold after watching avatar and he is already a retard to begin with.

    i think Titanic has abit more story than Avatar. My little 2 cents. If Avatar wins, it is an endorsement of high budget visual gusto. I like it too. but in a different way, entertainment non the less.

    I heard so much about Hurt Locker it hurts me not to watch it I caught a couple others like Inglourious B******s, District 9, Up.. and I thought they were great too.

    Somehow i think the Academy’s taste will prevail. Cameron will walk up and all hail the king of the blue people

    He is identifying with the blue people. See , even the background behind him is blue.

    I wonder what's the fuss is all about. I watched it like 3-4 weeks ago and I didn't really like it. My gf even fell asleep in the middle of the movie.

    It's the usual visual spectacle. Granted it does looks good. Even with my friend's insistence that i'm missing out something by not watching it in 3D, I wouldn't. The story is not worth my time watching it a second time.

    Does it feel like one of those movies with some moral behind the story that happens to be cliché or is it just me. I don't think aliens needed to be involved to make a statement about the environment or the still ongoing WOT.

    To be fair, the aliens were motion-captured. So even when they are CG, the actions and facial expressions were acted out like regular movies. Of course, the creatures and stuffs are still CG.

    I would rather something like Inglourious Basterds win.

    Just a thought, how come Avatar is not placed in the Animated Category as well.



    The CGI is so good they regarded them as real
