It’s funny that I am really, really enjoying the mundane day-to-day of the Star Wars universe as depicted in Andor. Like, the boarding announcements at the Coruscant port, the Imperial mid-level staff meetings (“Can’t we do these by holo??”), the delegation of Imperial authority to the Corporate Security forces and… Read more
Did anyone actually bother to read the interview, or are you just reading the tweets? Cause even by the tweeter’s own admission, in literally the next tweet in her thread, it’s clear that Dominik did a tremendous amount of research. He just found a lot more tragedy than many do when they watch her performances. Which… Read more
Illusions, Michael. A trick is something a whore does for money.
Oops, you did it again.
Hit me baby one more time!
She’s a genie in a bottle she’ll get outta this just fine!
In Avatar land they had to basically decide that Na’vi eat funky space ramen to justify a place to serve food in the area
Yeah, well, if Titanic gets referenced so much why aren’t they making a sequel to it?
I mean, okay. I thought as I was writing that about those folks who saw it a dozen times and found themselves seriously depressed because they couldn’t live in Avatar-world, but there’s always a small niche of weirdos who take a movie too far. So “no one” was an exaggeration and of course not true, but it was not… Read more
100% this. And even though Avatar land is great, its got nothing on Harry Potter. There is something about that world that just translated so well into a theme park area. I think its the bit of mundane life still sprinkled into the property and the fact that so many shops and places to eat and drink are featured. Read more
I loved that column, and I will say this: I do think Avatar’s lasting reputation as “having no cultural impact” is a lot more cultural impact than many of those forgotbusters had.
No offense to Neytiri, who’s a straight up hottie, but as far as unapolegetically horny cat women go, she’s no Nala.
It’s almost impressive how they made a movie full of wild technicolor fantasy creatures and I have never heard a child talk about this movie or heard from a fried “Ugh my kid wants to watch Avatar for the 10th time this week.” Cameron worked so hard to make it a Serious Movie For Grown-Ups that it sucked all the fun… Read more
The merchandise argument makes sense up until Disney made theme park rides based on it. I’ve been to the parks since and I didn’t see kids running around with Avatar stuff. And it’s Disney, so you know they made stuff. And there’s been Park Only characters that have caught on before, so it’s not just that the kids… Read more
Ughh okay. World of Avatar did not invent the “immersive world” theme park area - The Wizarding World of Harry Potter opened at Universal in 2010, World of Avatar opened seven years later. Planning for the Avatar park began in 2011, obviously in response to Disney FREAKING OUT because of how much attention and… Read more
Really? Cuz I heard it blue.
