Avatar Made Easy

I still haven’t seen Avatar, and frankly, I’m not that interested. Yes, James Cameron may have worked some kid of voodoo movie-magic, but I don’t really care that much. I recently came across this picture from Boing Boing, and I think its hilarious. It’s probably an exact plot line of the movie.

But think about it for a moment. What does this mean? To me, it means that movies today are just recycled. It’s the same plot line for everything. If its a romantic comedy, take two people who hate each other, throw them in a room together and then they’re in love. For a Michael Cera movie, just make it about a horny, awkward teenager and you’re golden (I’m still waiting on the Arrested Development movie).

I mean really, Hollywood? Can’t we do better than this. I think audiences today are much more sophisticated than that. It’s very rare that you come across a movie that, at the very least, appears to be original.
