I, Blue Boys

I think there's only one movie out this weekend in theaters and that movie is James Cameron's Avatar sequel, which I reviewed right here -- it's worth seeing, I think. If you can go into it with an open mind, just expecting what it is. Anyway above is a photo (via) of actor Jamie Flatters, who plays the oldest son of Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana's characters, meaning no he looks nothing like all that in the movie, unfortunately. In the movie he looks like this:

I never know how much of those Na'vi bodies to take as real bodies -- I mean is any of that butt-cheek even based on Sam Worthington butt-cheek? What a confusing world we live in today. No wonder everything is collapsing. Anyway for me personally there won't be any going to the movie theaters -- I'm planning on re-watching White Noise and The Eternal Daughter and probably Triangle of Sadness this weekend. (All of which I have screeners of.) The boyfriend hasn't seen any of those and I'm thinking about my list of favorite movies for 2022 and could use a re-watch on all of them. If y'all watch anything good -- or if you want to share your thoughts on Avatar -- hit up the comments, and have a great weekend!

I really didn't like the first Avatar, though I do think Cameron is the best action director out there, and those sequences didn't disappoint.
I won't see this. It looks like an animated film. And the critters are hideous. I don't understand having so many attractive actors mo-capped. Why not just make it animated? I wish Cameron would just direct another action film.
I think I'm just sick of all the CGI. I was loving Shang Chi, until the CGI orgy of the last act. I miss practical effects.
