What does /tv/ think of this? It is interesting how Avatar made a shit-ton of cash but then vanished without trace. I definitely can't remember any character names. Although I guess /tv/ is keeping the dream alive.

I can't remember the character names of anyone in Stalker, Andrei Rublev, Persona, Metropolis, etc. etc.

Long story short: names are sub-memes. Everyone on earth remembers the visual impact of Avatar and they can hardly wait for the further astonishments to come from Avatar 2 and 3 and 4.

OK, I laughed.

Dozens of threads created daily, 6 years later, after a single movie. It literally solidified 3D as something that would stay in cinema indefinitely (no pop-culture footprint my ASS). Every casino in vegas has Avatar slots. What the fuck do you want out of a single movie?
>>
Can we all agree that LOTR and Star Wars are by far the movies that left the biggest pop culture footprint? I don't think it's even a competition.
>>
>>64523363
it's a piece of trash movie
>>
>>64524350
lotr footprint is inside the footprint of the novels
it made no real impact of its own

star wars, sure, but only the originals
>>
>>64524413
Many people didn't know the books and the LOTR fan base grew enormously after the movies we a worldwide hit.
>>
Well the main guy became Turok and was followed by Navi
>>
>>64524522
the 'fanbase awareness' of lotr movies works about the same as the 'fanbase awareness' of passion of the christ in its relevance to the bible and its public perception
>>
>>64524413
On that basis, honestly the only competitor for Star Wars I can thinking of right now is The Matrix. Obviously Star Wars wins by a mile, but there's really not a lot even heading into that ball park.
>>
>>64523363
It was a multimedia project. The only reason it made so much money was because people wanted to see what the technological fuss was about.
>>
>>64524634
Wait, there's actually a whole load as soon as I stop to think. Alien, Terminator, Robocop... yeah, Avatar really is oddly lacking in impact.
>>
>>64523363
It mad so much money because it was so visually stunning and it was a good over all movie.

But when you take away the visuals its literally just a rehash of Pocahontas... Nothing that bold or original like star wars, lotr, harry potter, etc.
>>
anyone seen it recently? its already starting to look dated, I give it another 5 years before it looks unwatchable
>>
The sequel is literally taking 10 years to render

Saw it last week, 30Gig BR rip, it looks fucking fantastic. No, it doesn't look "real" like Titanic did, but it's still a great experience. It kept my wife's attention the whole time and normally she get can't get through 30 minutes of a movie without making out with my wife's boyfriend.

It's a single movie, wait until 2, 3, and 4 come out before passing judgement. The fact it basically gave us 3D movies is enough. Before Avatar, 3D was on its way out (anyone reminder Beowulf?). 3D was unwatchable.
>>
>>64523363

Avatard was entirely forgettable trash. It was nothing more than a 3D gimmick. The movie itself is terrible.

>Unobtainium

LOL EL OH FUCKING EL

Nice meme, teenager. I'm 25, was hyped for Avatar since 2006, and wasn't disappointed when I saw it in theaters. Frankly, It's probably teenagers who are talking shit cause they were too young to be taken to see it on the big screen. Why would you take a kid to see a James Cameron movie? Anyways, I saw it again last week on a friend's 4k tv via my bluray copy (bought day-one cause I had a job and didn't give a fuck) and it looked fantastic. Cameron has proven time and again that he's the master of action and effects, and yet you youngfags keep losing faith. T2, Aliens, True Lies, shit son you should have learned by now Cameron don't play. If he were a pizza delivery guy he'd show up 3 days after you ordered it but it would still be fucking hot and the best shit ever.

Only bad thing about Cameron is that he's taking too long making Battle Angel Alita. But once it comes, so will we all. And Avatar 2 will probably be to Avatar 1 like T2 was to T1, so I'm hyped.
