Much less so then Star Wars which is a shitty Disney XD cartoon.

Isn't Avatar a tech demo?

No?

When did memes go mainstream?
>>
>>64542724
it blows my mind people give a shit about this and i saw this as a star wars fan

but really, avatar was a strange phenomenon. everyone saw it, but does anyone really remember what happened in the movie? memorable quotes, characters? i barely remembered it walking out of the theater.

it's like everyone saw it for "the experience" and then forgot about it.
>>
>>64542799

I suggested that Avatar fans are only getting so worked up about it because being the highest grossing film ever is pretty much all Avatar has going for it. As soon as it's not #1 anymore, it becomes irrelevant, because it has no other real merit.
>>
>>64542799
You could say that Avatar was legitimately a meme movie.
>>
>>64542797

The channel where the shitty cartoon, Star Wars, plays on is called "Disney XD." Disney XD shows are aimed at preteens.
>>
>>64542799
>everyone saw it, but does anyone really remember what happened in the movie?
Yes? People say this meme a lot but I remember Avatar fairly well compared to most blockbusters I saw 6 years ago.
>>
>>64542841
Yeah, but why did they make the name of the channel a meme. It's not a coincidence.
>>
>>64542795
What was the point then? Nothing original aside from that.
>>
>>64542871
I don't know and I haven't even seen the movie. But I know it isn't a tech demo. People don't understand what a tech demo is.
>>
The sequels will bomb unless Cameron has a new marketing gimmick up his sleeve. He waited way too fucking long and nobody cares anymore.
>>
>>64542846
i'm sure that you do, but on the whole avatar didn't have a lot of cultural impact. nothing really "stuck" if you know what i mean. it's been 6 years and you don't really hear about Avatar anymore. no one quotes it, no one bought the merchandise, no one cosplays as the characters..

i'm sure once the sequel gets teased there will be some hype again if only for the fact that Avatar was such a box office success, but the novelty of 3D has worn off. we've already "experienced" the world of Avatar, what's there left to be amazed by?
>>
>>64542799
I remember avatar mostly because /tv/ had a tripfag called abatap who would insult anybody who criticised avatar.

The only thing Avatar did right was 3D. It was actually pretty good compared to modern "flickering in action" 3D. It also added a layer of unreality to the cartoon story.

It actually pisses me that Avatar was so shitty. Think if all that sweet money and 3D was used to film actually good sci-fi story.

Based Jim was just laying the foundations with a safe story to ease the plebs into the universe with part 1. Avatar 2 is where he will ascend to kino.

what's ironic about this whole argument is that most kino has very simple stories with lots of emphasis on visuals, i.e. exactly like Avatar.

this is literally a case of "popular films cannot be artistic".

If Cameron wanted Avatar to be bigger than Star Wars he should have gotten to work immediately on creating an expanded universe to sell to kids and autists. Say what you will about the quality of Star War's EU, it gave it the staying power to survive movie droughts and keep people interested.
>>
>>64544028
kinda weird how slowly avatar took off comparatively...

is it all just "dude, you gotta check this blue shit out.. so pretty"
>>
>>64543010

Didn't Abatap reveal that he had a schedule where he would shitpost 16 hours a day?
