Finally went to see Dances with Smurfs last night. As everyone says, visually stunning, but the storyline sucked. The antiAmericanism and anticapitalism were blatant and garbage, and the stupidity of just about every character was absurd.
Ok, so it was all about defending property rights, I guess I have to give it that, but it was still crap.
For someone so concerned with the beauty of Gaia, or whatever the Pandoran equivalent was, Cameron really stuffed up the ecology. Critters a cross between a rhinoceros and an elephant living in the rainforest? That lot would turn any environment into grasslands tout de suite. Horses in the jungle? Seriously?
Hunting with a bow and arrow in the rain? String will get wet and lose tension long before it brings down a gazelle. Gazelles in the jungle? Designed for speed but lurking in the undergrowth? How does that work?
I guess I spoilt it for myself by picking holes the whole time – still, visually stunning.
