      I disliked Avatar so know zilch about this sequel, but I'm 99% sure from that description that these are more of whatever those mind-swap hybrid body things? That those aren't the blue savages but rather a new set of adapteds except this time they're supposed to be special forces.

      As for why they don't just use cyborgs or advanced genetically enhanced soldiers or something, well same reason they didn't promptly setup orbital fabricators and asteroid mining and orbital solar gathering and so on so that they could just have kinetic strike platforms and big phase array beam systems, or for that matter not just have VR piloting with armored vehicles or even just armored windshields perfectly immune to fucking bow and arrow, or have humans not be retards: because then humanity would roflstomp pocahantas and crew and that's not allowed in modern America.

        Remember that Pandora is supposed to turn a profit so it makes sense that they would reuse their mind-swap things to save money.

          Eh, again this is where the too big stakes fucks up your explanation. If it was like hundreds of miles or high grade platinum/osmium/iridium this would make sense, very much worth a shitload, but also not strategic. Private corp wants to make an absolute shit load of money and cuts corners and doesn't have access to humanity's best stuff, on the contrary is legally restricted (maybe you can even mix in subplots there about the corp being naughty and researching tech it's not legally supposed to or covering up law violations, exploiting sentients which is banned by claiming it has no idea there is planet wide sentience).

          But instead it's magic high temp super conductor material that the entire Earth is now based on and worth a bajillion per kg and can be found nowhere else in the known universe. Which makes "well, we're just trying to turn a profit man" kinda start falling flat yeah?

            But the stakes aren't as high as it seems. It's mentioned that RDA suppresses synthetic unobtainium research so they can justify their lucrative mining operation. It's very likely they also see Pandora colonization as a new profitable monopoly even if terraforming Earth is the cheaper and more sensible option.

              that sounds pretty high stakes. That said

              >it's mentioned that RDA suppresses synthetic unobtainium research
              I honestly have zero recollection of that. But that still wouldn't make sense. If the material is that important, I'd expect governments to just nationalize RDA or something. Or be doing synthetic unobstanium R&D themselves. If RDA is the government, that doesn't explain the whole treaty license it's supposedly operating under, nor how weak it is. The excuse of not having real serious military presence is supposed to be that they're just an ordinary future megacorp and are trying to at least handwave at following the law or something.

      why the fucking hell are we not just slapping a bunch of our plants into that atmosphere. they use CO2 as food for crying out loud; and in the process they create more oxygen for us. since the pandoran jungle doesn't provide enough oxygen (but plenty of CO2) then terraforming wouldn't even be a challenge.

          I am unconvinced that it wouldn't just be shredded by Earth bacteria and Kudzu.
          Earth has some incredibly nasty lifeforms, and how two ecosystems interact is extremely random.
          When you introduce something like, say, Algae into a planet that has nearly unlimited Co2 for them to eat they're going to reproduce like crazy if conditions are right.
          Keep in mind, plants are not defenseless. Nor are microbes. You have a billion years of evolution backing you, which has primed your digestive system with the equivalent of an entire eon of anti-virus patches and security updates to deal with their defences.
          If you pulled a dinosaur out of the Jurassic and tried to feed it most plants alive today, it'd die of toxic shock.
          At best, most Earth bacteria and plants would be indigestible - at worst, they'd be fatal for the native life.
          Of course the outcome is totally random but hey, throw shit at the wall until something sticks.
          My money is on Kudzu.

            Since apparently this is actually some hyper tech synthetic world bya Type 3 (jesus) civ with a massive governing AI eh, suppose it gets to beat natural evolved life forms. Though that doesn't explain why it bothers allowing humans to fuck with it at all, or maybe that's part of the larp, "oh boy we get to let some primitives be NPC enemies for players" basically and if humans tried to do anything serious they'd be wiped immediately but it's fine so long as they play within the rules.

              Also makes sense then how they get to drag out the game for another 4 movies. Guess the planetary GM AI will keep making "balance patches" and ensuring all the navis have a good time until their inevitable heroic victory.

              Eywa or whatever is never once implied to be a constructed AI or whatever gay fanfic.
              Also, it didn't seem to have a problem with the humans mining it's dandruff and killing it's skin mites until we destroyed one of its nerve centers and Jake told it they were going to do it again and also try to poison it to death.
              At that point it still didnt help the Navi until it was absolutely clear that the humans were trying to bomb another nerve center at which point it immediately brain jacked every animal into killing the humans and rewarded Jake for being a good mortal pet.

              Really we were trying diplomacy with the wrong thing, the planet monster is the one in charge.

                I'm not shitposting, and this is an actual spoiler for the overarching plot of the franchise that leaked years ago and nobody believed it because it was so fucking stupid, but then it matched the sequel names:

                The Na'Vi aren't primitive or savages. They're a Type III godlike hyper-advanced race that intentionally gave themselves carbon fiber bodies with USB nervous systems, then colonized a planet they completely engineered themselves from the ground up, all so they could do an elaborate anprim LARP for the rest of eternity, and their god Eywa is in fact a biological supercomputer, which is why it does mind uploading/reincarnation/ordering fucking snakes and rhinos to attack with the coordination of military units/etc

                and taking it at face value. And as

                says yes, it'd explain a lot in terms of how fucking weird Pandora is as a natural occurrence, why it has a magic super material (if it's some stabilized degenerate or strange matter or something made by hyper tech) etc. If that spoiler is wrong like everyone originally thought it was fine.

                This, but less skin mites and more initial immune response.
                Na'vi had a place, and that was using their giant brains to ensure environmental homeostasis. Hence their whole cultural perceptions on hunting and killing or wrangling animals.

            The planet is not only concious, it has control down to the level of individual animals and perhaps even microbes. It could just actively choose to eliminate species it didn't want there, or worse use whatever schizo space magic sustains it to take over anything you introduced and turn it into more of itself. It's already proved it can jack into a human nervous system if it wants to which should be super impossible.

          No it's not, as we talked about earlier in the thread, it's completely believable in isolation, the problem is the movie's stakes. If we look at IRL, there are indeed international laws around mining and resources in international waters, what sorts of force companies can have on ships, stuff like that. It's fairly thin and not super enforced, but we don't actually see private battleships cruising around even though companies do hire PMCs for 3rd world countries because in general it's not a big deal. That's clearly what Avatar was going for in part: a hybrid of Space South America and early America. SA mining companies in the Amazon or something, destroying stuff because they're after gold, they've got private security that is better armed then the natives. And that's very realistic for stuff which is certainly nice to have but also has plenty of other sources.

          This thread has made me rethink and convinced me that beyond normal complaints like mediocre writing, the real original sin here is the stakes/subject. Movie would have worked fine if it was just a big megacorp looking to make a ton of cash without any major other stakes, if Pandora was one interesting valuable find amongst many and humanity had a few dozen planets/starbases by that point. So big deal for the company for sure, hell maybe entire future of the company rests on it, they'll go bankrupt otherwise. Company is motivated to spend tens of billions, serious money in one respect. But not trillions, and it's not something that's going to get governments up in arms beyond under the table corp bribe stuff. Public isn't going to approve of them genociding if it media gets wind, politicians would also throw them under a bus even if previously bribed. Governments paranoid about companies becoming rivals so keeping a close eye on miltech.

          Now we've got a sensible setting that explains things.

      Not him but that doesn't line up with the foundational stuff stated in the movie that this was the only source of this magic high temp superconductor stuff which is utterly vital for Earth. A problem then to me is that they did the retard hollywood thing of making the stakes so high that then the rest doesn't make sense. The movie would be a LOT better and more believable if Pandora was merely one of dozens of worlds/moons Humanity was using, and it just had like, a lot of Platinum or something. Yes, that's very valuable, of course some private mining firm would want to exploit it. But because the stakes would be "private firm seeking profit" it's also believable they'd still be constrained by law, that there'd be environmental protesters on the human side too, private mercs would be dumb etc. I could have just rolled with that.

      Instead though it's setup as an ultra important strategic resource. Something like THAT would promptly get nationalized, or at least have military level power on hand, or authorization to use it. They tried to create drama by saying this was important to billions of human lives. Once you have that kind of stakes the rest falls apart, it'd be treated like other similar things in history where the government intervenes whether it fucks the locals or not.

        I disliked Avatar so know zilch about this sequel, but I'm 99% sure from that description that these are more of whatever those mind-swap hybrid body things? That those aren't the blue savages but rather a new set of adapteds except this time they're supposed to be special forces.

        As for why they don't just use cyborgs or advanced genetically enhanced soldiers or something, well same reason they didn't promptly setup orbital fabricators and asteroid mining and orbital solar gathering and so on so that they could just have kinetic strike platforms and big phase array beam systems, or for that matter not just have VR piloting with armored vehicles or even just armored windshields perfectly immune to fucking bow and arrow, or have humans not be retards: because then humanity would roflstomp pocahantas and crew and that's not allowed in modern America.

        I'm not shitposting, and this is an actual spoiler for the overarching plot of the franchise that leaked years ago and nobody believed it because it was so fucking stupid, but then it matched the sequel names:

        The Na'Vi aren't primitive or savages. They're a Type III godlike hyper-advanced race that intentionally gave themselves carbon fiber bodies with USB nervous systems, then colonized a planet they completely engineered themselves from the ground up, all so they could do an elaborate anprim LARP for the rest of eternity, and their god Eywa is in fact a biological supercomputer, which is why it does mind uploading/reincarnation/ordering fucking snakes and rhinos to attack with the coordination of military units/etc

          Oh FFS (not at you anon, I believe you, and I can see Cameron being that retarded). It's still extra stupid, and not simply because it's a silly premise. I can actually kinda sorta go with it. Basically by definition a strongly superhuman intelligence/post-singularity civilization is impossible for us to fully comprehend, and what meaning does anything have anyway? Maybe it ends up being super fucking boring to a race to have zero risk or connection to IRL anymore, so they do in fact setup some crazy larp. For a Type 3 that'd be trivial, plenty of humans right now would larp forever in a VR world if they could let alone something more. So sure fine.

          But that still doesn't cover HUMANITY'S actions. Like it'd explain why humanity would go all out, but then lose. It could also be cool in the scenario I setup, where a private mining company after something valuable but not strategic gets squashed and comes to believe there is some super thing here but nobody believes them. And maybe the super intelligence subtly influences politics, infiltrates human networks, and sets up an environmental movement to "let Pandora stay unsullied!" but still allows some humans on there for larp fun. You could do something around that. But the problem here is how the humans don't act like humans. Making the primitives actually secretly not be isn't a bad twist necessarily in the hands of a non-shit writer, but humans shouldn't be artificially retarded either.

              Anon you replied to, but real world doesn't quite bear this out anon. Yes, capitalism without reasonable checks and balances can fuck up. But if we look at critical strategic resources like oil or the like, we generally see government keeping a pretty close watch and the KINDS of fuckups matter. Like sure, oil majors have had bad safety sometimes which have resulted in major ecological damage. But that's government letting them get away with more in favor of more production cheaper (externalizing costs). That's not the same thing as some hostile party actively interfering with production. When THAT has happened, we have very frequently seen governments flat out go to war over it. Or at least seek to put their thumbs heavily on the scale or more or less overt ways. For many countries energy is straight up nationalized, or if it isn't on paper it's mega regulated or under the control of stooges of those in power or similar. Even in democracies strategic resource areas tend to have serious government involvement.

              So if the entire fate of the human species rested on Pandora, and the corp isn't itself already the government, and suddenly production was threatened by native attacks, I'd 100% expect to see full scale military involvement. Particularly in this case where on paper humanity doesn't see anything opposing of a strategic nature which would push towards something covert.

              Of course I'd also expect to see a crash course in figuring out how to synthesize it for find alternatives just in case, but if it's hundreds of generations beyond our technology that might not be possible in the near term.

                That's because the capitalists buy control of the government. America is a perfect example of this where Corporations were awarded the same rights, but not same liabilities, of a human being and money is free speech while at the same time, the public is not allowed to see who gets the money, thanks the the conservative controlled supreme court.
                And considering how vital unobtainium was, you'd think the company would do a better job for security rather than hiring mercenaries who have to retro outfit their equipment to have military applications. But that's them cutting corners to make more money.

                Corporations are so rich because they don't have to pay rent for any of their facilities or upkeep any of their buildings. Because they arleady have all the space they need inside your empty head rent-free schitzo.
                On a serious note
                There is a big fucking difference between outsourcing production to a shithole country to save costs on safety etc and skimping on security for a mining operation granting you a monopoly on energy on Earth and thus immense influence and wealth, especially when the asset granting you that resource is constantly under threat by the entire fucking planet trying to kill it.
                >the difference is... IT WOULDN'T FUCKING HAPPEN
                I guarantee if this movie actually made sense, a corporation with a monopoly for energy on the entire planet would be THE de facto world goverment and would have so much influence it could do whatever the fuck it wanted and would have so much money there would be nothing within 100km of their base except for mud, minefields, autonomus combat drones and loitering munitions covered by an AA system capable of killing a mosquito from half a hemisphere away.

                My sympathies. Amusingly this thread has made me hate the movie mildly less and switch over to more dull disappointment, but like you I wouldn't watch it except I've got a family fan and will probably have to go watch the fucking thing eventually. Though I think I'll at least be able to get it put off until the theaters around here are mostly empty.

    I thought the whole point of being on Pandora in the first movie was resource extraction, and that the planet was extremely inhospitable to humans with an atmosphere that's pure poison, most animals on the planet having evolved carbon nanotube bones and skin, and dinosaur tier megafauna that's unfazed by antitank weapons.

      This is quadruple retarded because they're raising the stakes EVEN FURTHER. Like first it'd be far, far, FAR easier to just build a new home for humanity in our solar system with orbital habs. Or terraforming Mars or building underground colonies on Ganymede or Titan or something (drill holes a few hundred km down, detonate a bunch of clean nukes, boom cavern hundreds to thousands of square miles with hundreds of km of rock/ice shielding above it). Like sure that's hard, but it's less hard and less energy then trying to move people or much mass at all to another fucking star system. You get to tune the hab right to our needs and then "easily" relatively speaking transport tons of mass off of Earth. So the whole premise is retarded.

      But second with those stakes one would naturally expect a full on army, strategic weapons, the works. Hell, genetically engineered plagues, which unlike human v human fighting is actually low risk good return here because it's an entirely different species. Which means the natives insta-lose. What a fucking moron.

          I can't remember even a hint of that, and I'm gonna say no because IIRC in the Aliens universe Earth is still fine and heavily inhabited in the 2300s, it's just no longer the center of humanity as much because most of the critical jobs and mass manufacturing etc has moved to space and colonies (which would be another difference, massive amounts of space infrastructure and colonies everywhere). You're right that'd be extra stupid but I don't think it's the same just because Cameron. No sign of Weyland-Yutani and no way they wouldn't have a hand in something like this lol.

              Also makes sense then how they get to drag out the game for another 4 movies. Guess the planetary GM AI will keep making "balance patches" and ensuring all the navis have a good time until their inevitable heroic victory.

                I actually always really enjoyed that image, but unfortunately if that spoiler and anons are correct their religion very much isn't a farce and the image no longer is right but rather ironic. Their god really ARE real in that case, and Type 3 civilization is god level power. The stars literally already belonged to them. If they've completely given that up then humanity now has a chance too, but wouldn't change they owned it all and could have squashed our world at any point. And they may well have left latent reactivation capability, or maybe only some of their civ chose to larp while the rest is still out there.

                Wouldn't be the first fiction by a long shot (decades and decades) where you shouldn't judge aliens by first appearances since extremely advanced tech might not actually be recognizable at first and there are good game theory reasons advanced civilizations might want to be "quiet" rather then "loud" (like humanity is IRL). That's one of the solutions to the Great Filter.

                I still don't like how the film is written or presented though and don't like the look of this next one either. And it's probably now going to turn into some "humanity has to find super ai node and show they are sorry and work together with navi to get saved" shit now.

                Well by definition we can't actually comprehend a civ like that. Maybe a bunch of them literally did everything they wanted to do and are just done, and then fully regressed on their MMOG moon to give themselves some real "stakes" and perhaps grow again someday. Or just play until the star burns out or something. Or perhaps some did that and the ones that disagreed all decided to go exploring other galaxies entirely and are now billions of light years away, unreachable in a hurry even for them. Like, with god level intelligences you can justify almost anything, it could all be part of some inscrutable eon-long plan. That's a basic problem with bringing that level of being into a story that takes itself seriously, very hard to write well.

                I suppose I should add if they do want war over some useless rocks when trade is an alternative, or just handing them over they have to be okay with said war at the communal brain-tree subconscious level, so humans really shouldn't feel bad about exterminating them en masse since such wars over resources and extinctions are apparently part of the naavi culture and life cycle and they're fine with that.

                The only realistic way this franchise ends is Sully realising the na'vi and Pandora can't beat humanity if they get really serious about Pandora. He brokers some kind of framework for sharing the resources of Pandora, with either Sully or some other na'vi going to Earth and speaking at whatever the future equivalent of the UN is. It's the only way the series can end without Pandora's biosphere being obliterated from orbit.

                vulnerable to high-explosive
                They aren't though. Or at least, it's like saying that our civilization is "vulnerable" to spells cast in World of Warcraft since inside the game that can hurt stuff. Not sure what you're not getting here, apparently the entire pandora system is an artificial larp. So probably the entire core of the moon is like pure nanomachine factories and zero-point energy generators and closed-timelike-curve hypercomputers and shit. Humans can play around on the surface and that's fine, that's within the "game".
                >>too autistic to trade rocks that have no value to you to a species that assigns them worth
                The rocks are likely made by the civilization too, the whole thing is synthetic, because floating islands are a fucking cool game setting. Why would they trade them unless humans just asked nicely? It's all larp. They don't actually "want" for anything if they specifically chose this. Maybe fighting humans is actually a new kind of fresh fun, just like fighting monsters in games.
                >A super intelligent neural net should really be able to see the obvious ramifications here
                Lol what ramifications? It's all a game. It can squash the humans whenever it feels like it. Even if some of the players (Navi) "die" it doesn't even matter, either because they wanted to or because they're just uploaded, their game is saved. In this scenario it's humans who need to realize their position.

                Which isn't really my favorite setting, but it wouldn't be internally self-inconsistent. The big issue is just the writing is bad.

                The only realistic way this franchise ends is Sully realising the na'vi and Pandora can't beat humanity if they get really serious about Pandora. He brokers some kind of framework for sharing the resources of Pandora, with either Sully or some other na'vi going to Earth and speaking at whatever the future equivalent of the UN is. It's the only way the series can end without Pandora's biosphere being obliterated from orbit.

                Sadly I think it's the opposite and it's going to be
                >"humans must learn to get alone and travel to plead with the super AI and show how they can become more civilized and give up their violent ways and then the super AI welcomes them and/or fixes Earth"
                or some shit like that and everyone claps.

        Using the Avatar setting for large scale epic stories about big human vs alien battles just feels like such a waste, it's not set up for it. Smaller, more personal stories would be more interesting and be a better way to show off the art design, which is all that anyone both working on and watching the movies cares about in the first place.

          Yeah, totally, and also make it much easier to write well and maintain suspension of disbelief. There isn't any need to involve THE FATE OF THE WORLD and all the baggage that comes with it one bit. In fact that'd even tie in better with the whole space indian thing because IRL that didn't involve "the fate of europe" (at least not directly either), like look at stupid that is, imagine that instead of what happen in our world in the 1700s Europe was literally suddenly facing certain doom and knew it, but a local kind. Some big volcanoes forming or something and magma and pumace slowly wrecking Europe I dunno. But the New World is completely fine, so suddenly every European power really did have to evac and setup shop there as a matter of existential necessity. That's actually kind of a neat setting to imagine but it sure as fuck would change history in a big way, there'd be no dicking around everyone would send absolutely everything they had as fast as they could.

          I think in general though that's a bad habit of big budget summer blockbuster type of stuff, they have to elevate the stakes. Sometimes it can still kinda work, but it can also just really not work. Here it was stupid.

              Sure but I feel like you can do big heroic epics but still have it be focused without silly stakes. Like, fate of a city, or maybe even a country, not The World. Or just fate of a family, or even just "a significant disaster but not earth shaking". Ah well.

              that's so much more lame than the cosmic horror planet-spanning superintelligence that starts figuring out how to execute earth from light-years away over the movies plot I was hoping for

              Only meganerds are interested in realistic space war or post-singularity type of stuff, gets too weird for most of the population. I've made my peace with that one. We're lucky to get a random autism game like Children of a Dead Earth once in a long while, that's about the most that can be expected.

                But it's dumb and dismissive, even for today. In America at least miners are professionals, they're very well trained, and use very advanced tech. All heavy industry is like that now, there are "less jobs" yeah but that's heavily because productivity per worker has skyrocketed. Like a BelAZ 75710 or Cat 797 is an incredible piece of technology and not something you just shove some highschool dropout into. Nobody going to fucking space whether they have a PhD or not is "unprofessional, untrained", blue-collar has nothing to do with it.

                Freely admit this is all autism but I do wish more movies could treat all sides realistically as smart and capable even if "evil". The whole "if I don't like it/understand it those people are stupid" thing isn't just silly itself it also just gets boring. And it's a waste of cool potential.

                The post I responded to said "Unprofessional, untrained, blue-collar workers". And you don't need to be a "professional soldier" to be a professional with some military training. Army is full of that actually, tons and tons of specialist and support positions who are all pros but not infantry, but still know how to hold a gun. Or we can see in Ukraine how motivated people with the right training and kit can treat things very seriously and learn in a hurry.

                They hate people who actually work because it reminds them of how utterly impotent and lame they are themselves. Nobody who outwardly opines the mistreatment of 'the worker' actually does any work. Most people who do actually work for a living are proud of their work because they create real things. Or, at the very least are so goddamned busy trying to get their work done that they can't be bothered complaining or organizing. Many people resent what they can't have or do for themselves. That's why actual farmers, miners, electricians, road workers, construction, cowboys etc are so readily ragged on.

                Anon, I don't agree with other anon and didn't like the move, but I think it's pretty obvious you're letting your own biases invent stuff that isn't there too. The movie doesn't have an "anti-2A" message holy shit, anymore than Star Wars did. As everyone says it's Space Pocahantas: The MMOG. There's not secret agenda it's just not very good writing. Cameron is most interested in film for visuals, the aesthetics of things. He wanted to create a setting to do this whole fancy special effects 3D thing (remember, this was a huge marketing point at the time, THE FIRST GOOD 3D FILM SEE ZE FUTURE 5 JILLION YEARS ON SUPER COMPUTER RENDER), the plot is pretty window dressing. And while sure it's lefty "white guilt" "the poor native americans" "the big bad capitalist exploiters" sort of thing that's not new or current culture wars. 2A simply doesn't enter in it at all, it's not a pacifist film on any side, it's not about civilian use of arms holy shit.

                Not really? It's just condescending ignorant signaling, like how 4channigs sling around "chud" at fucking everything. Did you actually see the movie or are you just reacting to that one page? Cameron is bubbled hollywood type or urbanite for sure, but in the movie both sides are armed with what they've got, traitor guy going native is fine using weapons if he can etc. If anything I suppose you could argue it's "pro-2A" in that it favorably depicts "civilian locals" defending themselves from "government military". They don't use "guns" since they don't have them but the spirit is the same. The story theme such as it is comes straight out of old school Noble Savage type of stuff, though with some scifi mixed in apparently to justify it. In more skilled hands it might even have been kind of ok.

                also samefag here:

                You're projecting your own self-loathing onto that statement. The fact that you think it's derogatory says more about you than it does the script.

                >The fact that you think it's derogatory
                Anon that's 100% derogatory. But again, it's the same as genericized racist/sexist slurs thrown around disconnected from any origin or a lot of other stuff, it's not actually literal because the people using them don't even have any clear grasp on what they mean in the first place. It's signaling, "yeah I don't like that Other", Cameron thinks these are trashy people and they are going to lose vs the heroes. But Cameron has no actual notion of what "NRA supporter" means or any of the complexity there. Like I'm of course pro-gun rights like presumably all of PrepHole but I'm not at all an NRA supporter anymore because the organization got utterly corrupt and shit and became a machine to extra money from supporters and grift and market for shitty manufacturers. I've switched my memberships to ASA and other orgs instead that are younger and hungrier and focused on real world progress on specific issues I care about (like getting suppressors legal everywhere and hopefully someday getting them off the NFA entirely). Cameron doesn't know any of that or care. It means nothing more then "redneck" or "gay".

                Not sure what the screen shot is for or what you're confused by here. The movie Avatar doesn't have an anti-2A message (or any 2A message at all, though as I said if anything one could use it in favor; the Navi did need weapons), but neither is Cameron using "redneck NRA supporter" as a compliment. This isn't hard. Some things just don't involve current culture wars, but the people are still kind of assholes about certain stuff.

              Maybe, though a lot of ultra creative types are also kind of whacked out in one way or another, there are more mental weirdness then assburgers and autism like so many on here have. Anyone part of the hollywood scene for all those decades as a mega success may have done some pretty crazy drugs at one point or another too.

              It may also just be age and the almost universal result of so much success, where people start to lose track of their foundations and nobody can tell them they're wrong anymore. They end up getting too focused on surface stuff, and hanger ons can get bad. Seems like it's a real struggle not to end up in a total bubble and then get warped by it. And who in that business is going to say anything? Like for all our complaints and all Avatar might be somewhat wasted potential, as said earlier in the thread the damn thing made BILLIONS of fucking dollars. So I assume Cameron will get to do whatever the fuck strikes his fancy and if the writing is still mediocre nobody will push back. And probably they're not even wrong, the movie is made for normies not us, and apparently it works. Maybe will still be fun to pick apart though. At least it doesn't involve 400 different movies like capeshit.

I don't stick 40+ round mags in any of my handguns either but that doesn't mean I can't fire 'em faster than <1 per second. And it's only due to the law that you can't just get auto sears for whatever and have your handgun shoot 500-1200rpm (for a couple of seconds before even an extended mag is exhausted).

        >muh full auto with a small mag
        You're retarded. You don't need a pocket SMG that you need to reload in five seconds. If you want that, either get a larger mag or get a... wait for it... SMG. Sidearms are for sidearm things, like self-defense (this may require accuracy, not full auto, surprising I know) or as a secondary weapon if you can no longer use your primary (don't really see a reason for it to be full auto either).
        I don't know why tacticool morons think full auto = better, but I guess that's just the retardation of modern times. What you need is a pistol with functionality, not a pistol that will throw off your aim and spend 10 rounds with one pull of the trigger.

          I don't think you've ever shot a handgun in your life before anon. Because there isn't a semi-auto or revolver in existence that won't let you shoot faster than 1.5 seconds per round, like holy shit. Doing a quick accurate 5-groups at 10yd or less is seriously not a big deal, you should be able to do it. That it would burn through a mag faster doesn't matter, handguns aren't for sniping. "Up to 40 rounds per minute" is absurdly slow as a maximum, unless it's some super future plasma canon or something where each shot is homing and explosive. Sure doesn't look that way though.

          I know this is PrepHole but you should consider getting a few guns and training with them someday. It's fun as well as practical.

      Unironically that would be an absolutely hilarious movie and twist but the raw amount of seethe it'd generate would probably make it unmarketable and it'd never ever get done in Hollywood. A basic problem with a budget of hundreds of millions of dollars is that your product has to make back like half a billion dollars or more which means you have to get enormous audiences which pushes towards making it more generic and "unoffensive". No personal morals or anything involved just brutal business calculations, you see it everywhere in any media. Though I wonder if the sheer novelty might get it a certain amount of sales.

        I can't believe the guy who made Aliens and Terminator 1/2 is still going all-in on this trash. His peers in sci-fi and action like Ridley Scott, John Carpenter, and Paul Verhoeven have all released a few stinkers, but they know better than to just keep charging ahead with something that nobody will like.

            Star Wars was never good, even the original trilogy, it was always low IQ goyslop with some nice special effects. Just like Avatar.

              The original one was good. Not a "masterpiece" but in the context of summer block busters it had plenty of soul, though was getting iffier by the 3rd. But don't fall into the contrarian trap either, sometimes things that are acclaimed actually really do have a lot to them. Memorable human characters. Special effects were there but they weren't the point of it.

              It was just a scifantasy-western setting classic heroic epic, nothing complex but executed perfectly decently. That's ok.

                2001 Space Odyssey was much better. Planet of the apes series was much better. They trained actual apes to speak and act and follow a written script which was an amazing feat for the 1960s and much more impressive than matchstick models of spaceships crashing into each other or whatever the fuck is the main appeal of Star Wars supposed to be. Not to mention it's well written and delivers some nice social commentary on desegregation era America and the black liberation movement while Star Wars is just LE HITLER IN SPACE grade uninspired garbage for retarded children and gays.

    Doug Holverson had a webcomic called Si Fy Guy, made to look like it was drawn in the 70's, and printed on a duplicator (ask your Dad, they smelled like liquorice), and the plot was that an obnoxious, stupid catgirl with big tits travelled back from the future to the 70's on a very important mission but lost her Iphone with the time travel app, so a pair of toxic geeks travelled forwards to 2009, saw Cameron's Avatar, and came home with a couple armfuls of gadgets and manuals, becoming the AU versions of Bill Gates and Elon Musk, and also starting a franchise based on Avatar called "Catch-Em Catsos", a cartoon in a comic, drawn in 70's bigfoot style, like all those shitty cartoons from back then.
    I really wish that maniac had found an artist for the comic, I wanted to see how that all played out.

      I'd unironically enjoy the drama out of that. But I don't think it's anything like just because I don't think Earth is ever really going to feature at all in anything but flashbacks or newsreels. Unless it goes so full-retard that the navi get bioships spawned for them and final movie involves striking back at earth or something like that, but the leaks make it look like everything stays on pandora, or at least in the pandora system (like isn't pandora orbiting a gas giant or some shit? maybe that's a jupiter brain where a lot of the rest of the civ actually is).

      He has fossizilized boomer brain PrepHole would write a better story than Avatard
      I think there should be trannies in if at least there could be a chud corporate CEO villain or trans AI but yeah the story needs trannies bad because controversy sells
      There is no controversial material in the original film

      I'd be ok with that, feel free to take anything I wrote man. In fact I was about to say when writing this reply "I don't think it's fixable though" but no that's not true. Cameron could easily lower the stakes and fix things in principle and mostly get it back on track. Just say that humanity has now figured out how to synthesize the magic rock or found other sources so Pandora is still valuable but isn't vital. Can the hole "new home for humanity" shit, that wasn't in the first film anyway. Have Earth be in improving shape with other colonization happening, and new governments elected who are pushing back against corporate overreach. Now the movie can have a normal setup where the company is still trying to get minerals, or perhaps to secretly get hyper technology, but they can't reveal that and their military support or tech access is restricted. There can be some good as well as bad humans, like inspectors growing suHispanicious about what they're really up to. 3-way or even 4/5-way interests and conflict options. It's still salvageable Cameron!
