    Extra LOL!

    {spoilers}

    SERGEANT STRAW MAN: How 'bout we work it into the plot that later on, when it comes time to choose being a full time Smurf, your Smurf body is by that time crippled and can't walk, so it means giving up the chance of having legs as a human in order to be crippled as a Smurf?

    JUGHEAD: Wow! Yeah, that would be an intensely dramatic dilemma! By forcing me to give up something instead of just becoming more awesome, that would show the love for my upcoming love interest and the sacrifice I make to be with her, as well as how deep my bond with the Smurf society has become. It would show real heroism, and conflict, and hard decisions, and...

    JAMES CAMERON: Shut the fuck up.

    Nice. And you're right, that actually shows a much bigger commitment.

    I just don't know how many people would shell out money over and over again to watch "My Left Foot" in space, though.

    And pretty much being paralyzed from the waist down in a jungle environment is the kiss of death. Infected bedsores, eaten by Thanator, for the win!

    More awesome:

    I'm scared to login to Second Life anymore now.

    EDIT: At first, I thought you were talking about "doing the nasty" with Jar Jar in your second post.

    I just saw this last night and the conclusion throughout my group afterward was "Wow."
    There were certainly things that could have been better in regard to character/plot development, but i'm under the impression it would've been far longer than it was in that case .
    Visually, it was stunning. The various emotional responses sparked were fantastic and their lack of lingering on certain responses for too long was realistic and appealing to me.
    I was impressed, just not for the typical reasons.

    This. It was a very fun experience for me. I think they did a great job conveying emotion in CG characters, which is often done so poorly.

    Originality and character depth weren't the focus of this movie, and for me that was ok.

    I've never heard of Lisa Frank, but generally, the aesthetics of Avatar reminded me of a cross between My Little Pony and Carebears, the whole drawn under an acid trip.



    This is what happens when you eat too much Psilocybes...



    I agree with that too. Even the 3D aspect wasn't terribly impressive, imo. It was neat, but it felt like a regular movie that they added 3D to for the hype around 3D movies...just to make more money.

    Seriously, the more I think about it, the more I dislike Avatar.
    Cameron needed those obcenely contrasted colours because of the 3D effects. With darker tones, it wouldn't have worked so well.
