    Suddenly a new Space Jam sounds a whole lot better.

    I don't know. Appearantly some people can find it in their hearts to dislike a movie where Tim Curry is a flamboyant, singing pollution monster.

    Also, "preachy" comes up a lot, but I honestly much prefer Fern Gully to something like Avatar.

    Wait, let me rephrase that: I'd honestly prefer Fern Gully twice in a row to Avatar.

    For whatever reason, the Jungle Book was the default "distract the children" movie at my school. I always had to beware my public image, and not sing along to anything, trying to keep the fine sheen of Disney Disdain that marked you as one of the Cool Kids

    The only thing that's cool about Avatar is its accuracy in portraying the military, which is actually pretty rare,
    and impressive considering that it takes place in the far future on another planet.

    That's a shame. But possibly for the best, since as a sequel they would no doubt use boring just a sexpot Movie Lola instead of super awesome insane Looney Tunes Show Lola, who is among the best characters ever.

    Here's a question. Is there a movie to prefer Avatar over? I'm not a huge movie goer myself, so it's easy for me to say Avatar was probally the biggest waste of time I've spent a movie ticket on. It was also the first and only time I outright fell asleep in a movie theater.

    Citizen Kane, mostly. Or one of the really, really bad Pokémon movies that feel like they were written by ten-year-olds. Avatar seems fairly enjoyable in comparison to any of those.

    True.

    Though lord knows the media would be all over that for exactly that reason.

    For a miniute there I thought you are talking about a live action Pokemon movie. And don't even tell me if it exists or not. I don't think my head would handle the reality of it.

    I think there probably is one, I haven't dared to find out. And I don't think I ever will. Even the thought of one is too scary.

    But seriously, I watched one of the newer ones with a cousin a few weeks back and it was the single most illogical, inane piece of fiction that I have ever seen adapted in an animated form. It was seriously worse than some of the bad fanfic stories I've read and that speaks volumes.

    Like, the climax scene was Ash ascending on some magical freaking magic castle into outer space because some stupid Pokémon that was flying the thing had lost all control and was just going up, so he ran out of air to breathe and passed out... While another guy flew up there with this giant mecha of a robot Pokémon that apparently has jet engines strapped onto it (???) and keeps telling fainted Ash not to give up because he can't let everything end that way. And this guy clearly has no problems breathing whatsoever. Oh, and he's wearing a t-shirt?

    I was clawing my face at that point.

    They should go all the way now that they know the expectations for a sequel. Ditch the Sports, put Bill Murray in a giant Garfield Suit, throw some rebooted Looney tunes in there and insert the phrase "Total Pawtashtrophe" in There. I mean, it's the 2010's "Cat-atrosphe" just doesn't cut it.

    I expect my shipment of whores and cocaine any minute now Hollywood. Call me.

    Of course, I've only ever seen it once and I couldn't pay much attention to any deeper nuances that it might have had because I was so incredibly bored at the time, so it's quite possible that I'm just unaware of all the great stuff that it had... But I don't know, it seems unlikely to me?

    Well, that's a bummer. But, then again, I guess it probably would've sucked.

    But I can't deny, I loved Space Jam as a kid and I still love it today. One of my all time guilty pleasures (and, hey, Ebert liked it).

    A story of love, betrayal, scandal, a huge politcal ordeal, the crumbling of an empire. The sheer scope of covering an entire man's life?

    ...i know the narrative mysetery hook that ties it all together of "What is rosebud" has long since been ruined by pop culture.... but even without that light mystery holding it together its still a really good movie. Probably doesn't deserve its title of "best ever" which it largely gets for when and where it fell in history and what it pioneered, but... it's still a really good movie full of interesting characters and tragedy.

    I can understand not *liking* the film, I'm not a huge fan of Godfather, (don't care for the mobsters) Gone with the Wind, (the lead is a bitch), Ben-Hur (Not a fan of the religious aspect) or 2001 (looks fantastic, not much happens) but... they're still good movies full of great stuff. characterization, direction, setting, acting, music, cinemtography... those films are the all time greats because they have all the pieces.

    So yeah, I get it not being your speed, that's fine... but to not see any of what makes it great? To not be pulled in at least a *little* by the story? First time I saw it, it was on tv and I'd missed the first 20 or so minutes and I still got pulled in instantly by the acting and intensity of the scenes. I got entranced by the movie... wasn't till later viewings I picked up on the amazing stuff in the making of it.

    But to even begin to say "It's probably the most boring and uneventful movie"? REALLY?



    Serious question. I don't mean this sarcastically in any way, You're 20. You grew up even more in the age of internet and cellphones and mtv generally faster paced editing on *everything* than I did and I know there's an actual generational attention span difference as a result. (And my parents before me are even more prone to being able to watch slower films.) How many movies have you seen from before 1975 when Jaws and Star Wars changed the pacing on everything? Are you able to sit through Lawrence of Arabia or Seven Samurai?
