I decided not to see the second “Avatar: The Way of Water”. The first movie was stupid and had several logical flaws. The story would not sell to a pennies-per-word magazine.
That makes two three-hour new movies (the first is “Babylon”) I don’t want to see.
In the December 26, 2022 issue of The New Yorker, Anthony Lane’s review of “Avatar” confirms my conviction. Lane’s review is peppered with his sarcastic humor (“’The Way of Water’ is like the memoir of celebrity urologist” he writes). He tells a joke from “Finding Nemo”: ‘my enemy’s anemone is my friend” and refers to that Pixar movie with approval. We saw “Finding Nemo” for the Christmas Movie Weekend and enjoyed it, noting the beauty of the animation.
Essentially, Lane notes the new “Avatar” has little plot and many “special effects”, which James Cameron specializes in, along promotion of his products. I noted the advertisement on my box of Morningstar plant-based sausage links—oh, so that’s why the stores didn’t stock those excellent products for a long time.
Anyway, I’m skipping the movie. Have you seen “Avatar: The Way of Water”? What did you think of the film?
