Default I'm watching Avatar - Gods help me

A friend lent me a DVD of Avatar. I'm watching it now...about an hour an a half in. It is without doubt the most boring experience I've ever had in my life. I've always had a strange stubborn compulsion to finish what I start, so I will take a break, gird my loins, and go back to the movie.

I would welcome an appendicitis attack. I'd rather watch Pee Wee Herman's Big Adventure. Maybe the world will end before I go back to the movie. Maybe I will die. Hope springs eternal.

Mike

Aw it's not that bad, the problem is that it's more propaganda, race mixing, wiping out the blue injuns, you know, the bad bad white people. Other than that it's mildly amusing.

Compared to Avatar, The Smurfs is a sophisticated and adult drama. Avatar, which I did manage to finish watching last evening, was childish, predictable, and boring. It was exactly a Saturday morning cartoon, and well toward the bottom of Saturday morning cartoons.

Avatar uses a technique, that to be fair, has been used in movies at least since The Birds (1963,) not too bad a movie. It is this: to push the action in the needed direction, an actor, usually the lead, has to act like a near-retarded, undisciplined fool. In The Birds, the lead woman character, played by Tippi Hedren, moved about slowly with a blank expression, forgetting to shut doors and windows, as if she were in no danger. This kept her in constant danger, the point of the movie.

Avatar used this in almost every scene. Jake, supposedly a combat hardened, force-recon marine, wandered about, ignoring his orders, goofy, touching everything, paying no attention to his task...in short, acting like a three year old. And this just went on and on, scene after scene.

The movie also took its little message...niggers good, injuns good (whatever,) white folks bad...and hit you over the head with it, over, and over, and fucking over. Most of the scenes were just this repeated. Then some action at the end. No drama, no doubt, just scenes borrowed mostly from cowboy-indian movies, every scene pretty much like the last.

A childish, repetitive, predictable, and painfully boring cartoon. Oh yeah! the visual effects were not too bad, in fact they were damn good. Even that only took about three minutes to become boring.

Default Valerian

I just gave up trying to watch, "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets." I made it about 35 minutes in. It makes Avatar look good. "Plan 9 from Outer Space was a well put together work of art compared to Valerian.

Garbage, Saturday morning cartoon, and the worst of.

It is a free watch for Amazon prime.

I have not seen Avatar, nor do I plan to. I hope the recently-discovered planet orbiting Proxima Centauri is not inhabited by a bunch of blue niggers (not to be confused with the badge-wearing kind here on Earth).
