James Cameron's AVATAR (in cinemas across the world on dec 18th)
I think this movie deserves its own thread. Are you ready for the movie of the century?
Top5 of most successful movies of all-time:
1 Titanic $1,842.9
2 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King $1,119.1
3 Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest $1,066.2
4 The Dark Knight $1,001.9
5 Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone $974.7
My prediction: at least 2nd place with at least $1.2 billion.
The reviews for this movie are stunning. Probably as good as never before.
What is good about this movie? Why is there such a hype?
(Serious question, no sarcasm)
Ridiculous amount of money spent on CGI. Why it would be good though? I doubt it will. It's going to be entertaining - it's Cameron after all - but everything points to the story being pathetically mediocre. So basically a wow-factor movie.
Nadal is more conservative than Margaret Thatcher.
"I asked a bloke in the front row if he liked the serve-and-volley stuff," said Rafter. "He said he did but asked if he was going to get to see any rallies. 'Not today, mate,' I told him."-Pat Rafter silencing the Nadull fanboys
alien movies are the best ever made imo. even better than the lord of the rings trilogy.
I doubt that, then again I don't rate LotR movies all that well anyhow. The book was pretty good, although imho not Tolkien's best work; The Silmarillion is much better - one of the best books I've read.
On topic though, I couldn't care about CGI and luminescent forests.

however, at the end of the day it's the number of tickets sold which counts and not the $$$. that's why i'm not a fan of the $$$ list but of the "adjusted for inflation" list which represents the number of tickets (= number of viewers) sold. i think to beat gone with the wind you need something like $3 billion today. a number which is impossible to beat especially with the internet around.
