cameron seems to have fallen into the trap of many a middle aged director, early stuff was gritty and uncompromising(terminator, aliens), later stuff grows ever more sentimental and formulaic (TITANIC!!!!)
i do hope im proved wrong
Just realised, the movie will be in Digital 3D won't it? That'll add to it… the new 3D stuff is really good (have you seen Ice Age 3D or 3G, purely for the cool 3D stuff rather than the plot or anything else 🙂 )
The blue pixie people and the space marines put me off. A lot.
What's wrong with space marines?!
Not sure what to make of the trailer though, the blue aliens on dragons were pretty hokey. Also agree that it looked a bit too much like a game trailer or cut scene and didn't seem to have that gritty look that, say, Aliens had.
That said, I think the 3D stuff is supposed to have been an integral part of how it was made, so I suppose it's inevitable that it's not going to look as good on a monitor. Will probably go and see it.
