This week on the podcast, the topic of Avatar came out, and not the one that brought us the Last Airbender.
Wait, why am I doing these again? I don’t know. I have enough problems when I’m part of the show. I can use my desktop for better audio but no video, or my Kindle Fire for video but sometimes spotty audio. Back to reactions…
Ryan, it seems, was quite enthusiastic to defend James Cameron and the movie Avatar. But really, do we need four sequels to this movie? Furthermore, how do we measure success for a film like this?
Earlier today, Ryan posted the new Warcraft trailer, which is a thing that is happening. I’d posted a couple, and usually couple the trailer in question with something that looks much cooler. While looking for something to go with the new one before Ryan beat me to the punch, I found this thing for Electra Woman and Dyna Girl. I had a few thoughts.
What the hell was that?
Sid and Marty Kroft are still in business? Are those guys still alive?
Who the hell are these people?
Seriously, what the hell was that?
Look, I know nothing of this whole thing, but it seems to be a thing that exists. You know, like Warcraft. There’s a date attached for June. Anyway, trailer after the cut. Go nuts. It’s probably better than Krull.
Basically, that means that anything can be a cinematic universe these days. While sitting around the Gabbing Geek Editorial Office, I came up with a few of my own. See them after the cut. Hollywood, feel free to use these for a small piece of the gross. Not the net. I won’t be screwed over that way.
However, Ryan made note of the fact that the others ’round these parts, either on post or podcast, rated the movie above a five out of ten. My own grade was a seven out of ten. I stand by that. So, in the interest of filling up space, allow me to explain my reasoning a bit.
