The SFX in the movie were good and the story line was crap and predictable. So it might do well as a game.

SFX do not a good movie make. They can't mask unoriginal cliche-ridden garbage. Back to the drawing boards, Bubbas - quit shovelling this tired trash down our throats.

And the same for 'Top Gun: Marauder'. Nobody in real life has a military career of 35 years, let alone as a fghter pilot. i'm a vet and I wasn't born yesterday. Get original, Hollyweird!

That’s about 20 years @rainyday 1:24pm. Caught the sarcasm but still, which 90’s & 2000’s Tv and films? Or, should we leave that as future “Have Your Say” comment section for this site. (They did SciFi movies vs. real Science last week.). In the meantime, looking forward to your answers here. (We’re bored; )

I object to the new Avatar movie on the ground that its unfair for Hollywood to go straight from re-booting popular 1980s franchises all the way to re-booting popular 2009 franchises while mostly skipping all the stuff in between.

So, by that logic*, You’re*really looking forward to that VR experience ‘*You envisioned**”*

Uh... Yes, of course!

The original movie was just a collection of repetitive tropes, many not really well done. I guess it is appropriate that the new one is paired with video games, the genre where this approach (unashamed recycling of concepts) is much better accepted.

Funny ‘mate ; )@Thomas 2:58pm

- “maybe people just see what they are most interested in. Who knows! : “

So, by that logic, You’re really looking forward to that VR experience ‘*You envisioned* *@9:27am*?

- “What they SHOULD do is a tie-in with the VR-sexbot-hybrid adult entertainment industry! There would be plenty of guys wanting to get in on some of that alien action.

Ask *Your*self to be sure! ; )

- “Imagine staring into those huge eyes...

Perhaps You should try Ubisoft’s aforementioned game FIRST to see if it can satisfy your interests?

James Cameron himself told MTV News:

- “You mean the alien kink scene? It exists. It's been restored, every last frame of it. Seriously," he said, adding that the scene in question won't break any records — it lasts all of about 20 seconds.”

And those ‘tails’? Is the perhaps ‘unintentional’ yet possibly phallic symbolic imagery in the photo meant to represent their alien love and/or signaling his attraction to her?).

Maybe.

Or maybe people just see what they are most interested in. Who knows! (Ask your psychiatrist to be sure!)

Remember when this was a popular movie… 12 years ago?

A bit too little too late. Never mind the fact that this film is soooooooo derivative, my cliche meter/BS Detector went off and I had to chuck it into a dumpster before it blew up from the overload!

Is the perhaps ‘unintentional’ yet possibly phallic symbolic imagery in the photo meant to represent their alien love and/or signaling his attraction to her?). it sure of Cameron’s intentions with this a on the BIG screen behind him. This was not covered in Fri’s “Have Your Say: “What are some movies whose bad science made them almost unwatchable for you?” - Perhaps a follow up there handling these types off questions are equally relevant?
