Movie Clip Wednesdays: Most Overrated Movie Ev-ah
It's hard to believe that the man who made the original Terminator (a terrific, heart-racing piece of low budget sci-fi), very quickly went on to establish himself as Hollyweird's king of over bloated, over budgeted, yawn inducing blockbusters. I hate everything about Avatar with a passion so white hot that if I could, I would shoot it to bits with every piece of weaponry in my arsenal, then I'd stab it with my stilettos, chop off its head, and feed it to the wolves.
The movie's a veritable Frankensteinian construct of clumsily pieced together Native American symbolism, New Age environmentalist hoo-hah, and embarassingly cookie cutter characters (although, that Australian dude, Sam Whatever, can return my phone calls), all filtered through sensibilities so libertarded, they make Sean Pean look like Barry Goldwater. Just looking for a clip of it on You Tube made my breakfast come up, but the spoofs, like the one above, are awesome.
So, if you want to play along, drop by the blog of our ever-faithful host, Milk River Madman, to see who else is playing this week:
