Reminder that avatar is basically a glorified cartoon for manchildren

Much less so then Star Wars which is a shitty Disney XD cartoon.
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.
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.
>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.
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?
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.
>ends with human beings being sent back to "their dying world"
>you know, for kids!
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".
Awwwww, did poor widdle JJbaby's box office flatline?
>Star Wars is going to beat Avatar
keep on dreaming visitor
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.
