Can't you just go to a movie and enjoy the movie instead of analyzing it to the point it is not a good experience?

I loved the movie, it was great in 3D.

No analyzing here. How much you two got invested in the Movies stock? :eek:hwell:

This is funny stuff. One could say he stole the story line. Or, he just followed Joseph Campbell's research on human mythology. Either way - I enjoy stuff like this. Thanks for posting.

HAHA! Yepper, they say it will exceed Titanic!

It is a must see on the IMAX screen, that is for sure.

i think a blind hog found an acorn with titanic (cameron). titanic was a weepy love story with cool effects of a ship's last hours...a ship that was unsinkable.

avatar was a big special effects 3D thing, but it was as predictable as titanic was. i don't regret seeing it tho. 8 bucks is cheap entertainment.

and yes, i am a professional movie critic...;).

There are no original movie ideas anymore. They are all remakes of something else or a sequel to something or the same old boring storyline.

Oh, contrar mon ami ...

Joe was a fine fisherman, and often incorporated his hobby into his work. An example of this comes to mind when reading thru this little ditty:

In 1944, Campbell was struggling to find that form. The pressure was on, because an editor at Simon and Schuster was interested in publishing a book by him on mythology, and wanted to see a sample chapter. Campbell dreamed that he was fishing, and having trouble baiting his hook. The worm broke in two. He tried to stitch it together to make a plausible impression of a fine live juicy worm, but as he tried to get it back on the hook the bait turned into a large fish. He felt the pain of the hooked fish, all the way up his backbone.

Well, after that Claven fact, next rounds on me!

Boring story, hacky acting, ridiculous dialogue. The 3D was interesting for about 45 minutes, then I was looking at my watch. The last hour was absolutely painful.

Turns out my female companion was just as bored as I was and I could have left at anytime.

My wife, son, and nephew all enjoyed it. I thought the visual effects were just awesome, enough so that they offset the triteness of the storyline.

I counted about six different movies.

Dances with Wolves
Little Big Man
Princess Mononoke
A Man Called Horse
Spirited Away
The Last Samurai

I don't figure why some people take these flicks so seriously with their "messages". They are entertainment to me and nothing more. Folks need to lighten up a bit. I enjoyed it.
