Ben you are funny as hell, as always. I agree that JC was a douche with Titanic. I couldn't watch the whole thing, but did hear enough of that awful Celine Dion at the Oscars that year and elsewhere ad infinitum, and yeah I noticed too that at the end of Avatar we hear her doppelgänger voice wise, worst part of the movie, except for the cigarette ad as Ms. Weaver emerges (in a flick that's supposed to seemingly pick up where Cameron left off with Terminator and the future warnings of some sort of dominance by either machines or the corporations that originally built them). But I got lost in the film and enjoyed the ride and liked the concept of that sort of bodiless freedom for the bodily damaged. And instead of thinking of it as an auteur movie, it seems more just a collective Pixar type techie extravaganza. So kudos for making me laugh at the problems with the movie, but I dug it (just thought though...so what? Now we are all supposed to buy 3D TVs? After everyone just bought a damn flatscreen? Where's John Connor to take out all the new technology when you need him, oh the irony). Oh and agree on Mr. F. Fox. I saw it in a theater so old they had to hand roll back the curtains and straighten them after a Rocky Horror night so you could watch Anderson's brilliant stop animation on a taped together 25 foot screen? I equally lost myself in that one.
