Avatar's become another Titanic size box office hit, is it really that good?
Go and see it. Your tastes will vary from mine.
in a word, NO...
not bad...just not THAT good
yeah, but to be fair, in terms of story wise, "Titanic" wasn't THAT good either, but it wasn't bad. just a decent romance film that caught a good break due to a lot of hype. same with avatar, its a sci-fi epic film, that caught a great break around the holidays.
The pricing measures used to compare older, via inflation adjustment is skewed quite a bit and always has been.
Movies are subjective to different pricing all over the world, and to compare new ones to old ones, that have many years separating them is foolish.
However, I've not yet seen Avatar. But, then again I didn't think Titanic was all that great of a movie.
your right about all that. however, i would also like to point out to add to what you just said, is that Avatar has an advantage since cinemas not only show it in traditional format. There's also the 3-D version that's still in theaters, and that costs more than a normal version of the film, where as Titanic solely relied on a traditional 2-d version being in theaters. Therefore, that gave Avatar a huge advantage to rake in a few extra dollars per show. which may not seem like that much, but it really adds up over time.
There doesn't appear to be a lot on the market right now that it has to compete with.

And are you going to watch it? Do you think it will have the same qualities of the previous one?

Will Avatar 2 be more, less, or as popular as the original Avatar screenplay?As the highest grossing film in history, James Cameron's Avatar was a tremendous worldwide blockbuster. With confirmation of two more Avatar...

The James Cameron film. Just wondering what everyone's take on the hype around it is thus far?Personally, I find Cameron to be vastly overrated as a director; with Terminator and Aliens being the only REALLY good films...
