    Lol, Austin’s talent behind the camera far exceeds his years. He’s entering his final semester at college and has a great future ahead of him!

    The Abbott and Costello project sounds like it has the potential to be amazing. Will you have more info to share soon including a release date?

    One of the oddest statements about 3-D that I have ever seen (from a cnbc article about Disney's risk in taking on the Avatar sequels):

    Previous systems used two cameras because filmmakers had determined that the human brain processed different information from different sides of the brain. So, one part of the brain would process the image’s movement, while the other would process what was happening in the image.

    Um . . . what?

    At least they didn't bring up anaglyph. :)

    The whole article:

    Doesn't seem like you'd need two cameras for that. Your brain could apply that processing to any moving image.

    From that article:
    Guess you don't need a good story. Avatar certainly didn't have one. I'd say that was its biggest failing.

    You can say the same for most superhero movies which have the same story over and over and over but still rake in the money. The public has very low standards and Hollywood now cares more about how a film plays in China more than how it plays here. Non-network television is the last bastion of creativity today.

    Well We saw Avatar at the cinema once on release and a myriad of times at home since and we like the story.

    Avatar had several good stories: The Word for World is Forest, Soldier Blue, Hunter, Come Home, Ferngully, Pocahontas, Dances with Wolves.
    James Cameron's supreme achievement was to combine them all into one beautiful but lame movie.

    Whoever wrote it must have been using only one very small part of their brain.

    I myself came to enjoy and appreciate Avatar on repeated viewings, but your rundown of all its "stories" made me laugh out loud.

    I’m really excited for everything the 3D Film Archive has in store. I haven’t been has active with my 3D posting lately - I’ve been writing more from on the road or during commuting so I haven’t had as much time as Ive had in the past to sit at home and enjoy 3D. But the recent preorders are easily blind buys for me and whether or not I get to enjoy them on day one, I’m ordering early so that they’ll be waiting for me...

    ...but I am giving Bob’s number to my wife if she asks me what the @&$! I’m watching :). I honestly think she’d be more surprised at me watching Parasite than Nudie Cuties. Vintage Coppola I can sell, but she knows 80s horror is so out of character for me!

    A good thing for the producers that the late Ursula K. LeGuin wasn't the litigious type, otherwise Avatar might have been a bit less profitable.
    Avatar is undeniably impressive but the blatant story "borrowing" is beyond annoying.
    James Cameron must have been grateful that Harlan Ellison didn't write "The Word for World is Forest".

    Regarding Parasite: Bob showed a group of us the final master last night and all I can say is if you've been looking for a movie with constant off-screen "popouts", Parasite is the one for you.
