When I watched Avatar I felt robbed of 2 and a half hours of my life. I got in dispute over my deeply felt dislike of it's shallow uninventive story line with quite a few people who surprisingly thought it was a good movie.
I think everyone who is a fan of the film should watch this video here. And everyone who hates Avatar should watch it too, cause it EXACTLY tells you why Cameron should be punished for his calculated predictable cash-oriented Hollywood script writing.
The guy - Mike Stoklasa - who does the video review is a genius in the disguise of his fictional creation of Mr Pinkett - a fat wife beating redneck. You gotta check this dude's work out for his great comedy value but also for his in-depth well oberserved and researched analysis. I like how he sums the who movie up as being in 3D while all the characters remained one dimensional. It really hits the nail on the head - a nail that should be the last in the coffin of Cameron's movie scripting career.
And if you like Mike's work check out redlettermedia.com for more brilliant reviews where he destroys George Lucas' Star Wars - The Phantom Menace and quite a few Star Trek movies.
This is stuff I would make part of any Film School Schedule - entertaining but also very educational. Best combo ever.
