Avatar was thoroughly mediocre.

As my friend called it at the time, it was "Dances With Smurfs."

 

 

Just did the Avatar ride at Disney for the first time. My son gets off and goes that was great, awsome ride.  That is the only sequel Avitar needs why are they making like 4 more?

Huh.

So with weekend actuals in, Dark Phoenix has made just shy of $60.1 million domestic.

John Carter had hit $62.4 million by that same point in its release cycle 7 years ago.

#WorseThanJohnCarter

Guess it gives new meaning to the phrase "it's the bomb."

Wrong thread. If you are going to play out the 'Oh yeah, take this...' routine at least do it in the right thread.

But ask your friend first for a Las Vegas-level zinger.

C'mon manlol.  You can't make that argument.  Both story and characters were already developed in the comics.  I don't know how original something can be when it's built on an existing story and idea.

What story does Endgame replicate..? While the characters are inspired by the comic counterparts, they're definitely unique to the MCU. And while quantum time travel is not a unique concept, it was executed in a unique fashion. Endgame offers some unique premises and is a unique event, especially in comparison to Avatar, which was simple a unique adaptation of advancing visual technology.

How about a rehabilitation of the claim -
from: "Seriously, though, Endgame was an original story with interesting characters".
to: "Seriously, though, Endgame was an adaptation of an original story with interesting characters".   -as opposed to Avatar, which might be viewed as a rehash of a well-used story.  (And I'm not bashing, I rather liked Avatar).

While that's not unfair - which comic story did Endgame replicate? It's not Infinity War or Infinity Crusade. It's a unique adaptation. Unless someone can point me to the story that inspired it.

I was trying to find the middle-ground, as the overall concept of the Avengers, Thanos, the glove, etc. are adapted from the comics.  I agree, many elements are original.  Yet, the MCU is adapted from the comics.

Mebbe this is a case where something less original (the movie Avengers ) is more original than Avatar (which showcases original characters).  :D

There is no middle ground. There can be only 1!

Anyone searched their area for Endgame Bring Back Event starting Friday?  It looks to be VERY limited in my area unless some theaters didn't post showtimes yet.

Did you... See Endgame..?

The quantum time travel does not do the same thing. Professor Hulk even shot down all of Lang's movie-inspired ideas on the effects of time travel... As did Stark... Specifically saying that Back to the Future is not the same concept...

I'm not sure.  Was that the movie with David Banner?

so an estimated $2.5MM weekend is somehow going to translate into an additional $35MM to pass Avatar?

I'm just glad Disney won't have to shutter its parks now, let alone the film studios.
