Are we in the trust tree? Because I have something to confess.
I have an irrational hate for Avatar. Like I actively dislike the film, so much so that I can feel my blood boil whenever it, its undeserved box office success, or its eventual sequel(s) gets mentioned.
You know that quote from I, Robot, the one where Will Smith’s Detective Del Spooner is like “Does thinking you’re the last sane man on the face of the earth make you crazy? Cause if it does, then maybe I am.” Yeah, that’s basically me whenever my brain thinks about the fact that until Avengers: Endgame, Avatar — fucking Avatar — was the highest-grossing movie of all-time.
Has anyone actually seen Avatar? It astounds me that a movie so truly awful, so wildly overrated, could be as successful as Avatar.
And yet, despite what feels like a decade of screaming into the unresponsive abyss about how fucking terrible Avatar is, the long-awaited and essentially living-meme that are the planned sequels are due to start coming out in 2021. You know, just a casual 12 fucking years after the original came out.
Anyway, what the hell was the point of this article? Forgive me, I get so literally blindly with Avatar anger that I sometimes lose my bearings. Ah, that’s right, the first-look at Avatar 2 concept art that dropped this morning.
So, there you have it: Avatar looking as Avatar-y as ever, or, as one Twitter user aptly put it, like a Ubisoft open-world video game. And to think that Cameron genuinely believes this film will outgross Avengers: Endgame — what a crock of shit. The movie stars fucking Sam Worthington for christ sakes! Who in the FUCK is Sam Worthington?! Hollywood gave up on the dude literally a decade ago.
