Quote of the Day

AICN posted a letter from James Cameron addressing some of the recent rumors of there being trouble between the people cutting the trailers for Avatar and JC himself (JC's answer: not true), and JC goes on to briefly touch on how the film is coming along:

"The cut is shaping up nicely and the stuff coming in from Weta Digital is astonishing. Every once in a while, as we are absorbed in some intensely detailed discussion about sub-surface scattering or the way a tail is moving in the animation, I'll just stop and have this moment of clarity, as if seeing it for the first time. And I realize that's what the lunar astronauts must have felt like. They'd be in the middle of some complex set of procedures and they'd look out the window and go "Oh, yeah. That's the frickin' moon!" It feels like that."

Again, if Cameron hadn't proven time in and time out that he's got the goods to match his chutzpah then I'd find his sense of self -grandiosity grating. But then I think about the things he has shown me in a movie theater...

... and I let the man talk any damned way he wants to.

You're a far more generous man than I am. I am looking forward to this cinematic equivalent of space travel, though!

On the other hand, he also give us Piranha 2: The Spawning.

Kidding, I'd walk on broken glass to see anything he directs.
