I think I may need to move to England.

SJ is incredibly hot but I probably wouldn't rank her as high on the tier list as others would.

Also, when watching Ghost World, was I the only person who found Thora Birch more attractive? O_o

I don't think it's mediocre either.

Really, I don't get why the story bothers people so much, yeah it's basically just Dances with Wolves in space.

But that's actually one of my favorite movies, so I don't get the big deal. The story isn't really bad, it's just not terribly original, but nothing really is, the Dances With Wolves/Pocahontas thing is just hard for people to get over. I'll give you the lack of character development, but was anybody really expecting a character driven movie? Really?

It's a visual driven movie, I want to know why these kinds of movies are so damn bad. And why Burton, Scott, Lynch, Tarantino and so on got so much flack for making "style over substance" films.

The movies are a visual medium, that was what they were intended to be the day they were invented, if all you want is a story you can read a book.

Definitely not. Mmmm.

Ahem.

Anyway, about Avatar--it's not the story that bugged me about it. I get that it's a visually driven film and I'm cool with that. But a lot of the clunkiness in the dialog is enough to distract from the visual aspect by inducing facepalm and taking me (at least) out of the movie entirely.

I'm not asking for depth--it's more that it didn't feel natural enough to make it work. (Which is something Tarantino does really well, Burton usually manages to get at least close to and Lynch... well, "natural" doesn't exactly apply to Lynch--but his realities have their own internal logic.)

That said, I didn't hate it. I'd watch it again. What it did right, it did better than anything else, but it's still overall pretty average.

It's been years. I'd forgotten how much I love this movie (and how much better it is than Labyrinth).
