    You sure you're not confusing opinion with fact?

    About Airbender? No. Not even slightly...well OK, I'll concede that the costume design, cinematography and editing was competent and that some of the actors did the best they could. But that's all.

    I know art is subjective (I am an artist after all), but being art doesn't mean it's any good. Quality can be an objective thing. Bad writing is bad writing, bad acting is bad acting and Airbender was a bad movie.

    Doesn't mean you can't enjoy it. I have a soft spot for a number of bad films, but that doesn't make them better films.

    $243,611,982 million = $243,611,982,000,000. That's more than the GDP of the entire world.

    So. If we can muster up $243,611,983 can we bribe them to not make it?

    Thankfully, James Spader isn't too old for Avengers 2.

    Thank you, Emmerich, for having some sense in you.

    Personally, I have always disliked those back to back filmed movies. I have yet to see where it worked, except for the Lord of the Rings films. Films suffer when there is no creative input (from fans and professionals) between their productions.

    I was about to give that as example. I didn't like Part III.

    Also Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions.

    Superman II sucks, in either Lester or Donner version.

    And when I hear about James Cameron's plans of shooting Avatar 2, 3 and 4 back to back... oh boy.

    If you make a decent movie and have a plan you don't need fan imput.

    Now we will get one movie with a cliffhanger ending? That's stupid.

    Aren't there rumors about him being the new Human Torch in the Fantastic Four reboot?

    The man is on fire!

    Will somebody pleaaase notify Tim Burton?

    If there'd be a second ID4 but no MARS ATTACKS 2 the cosmic balance would be severely screwed up. :lol:

    Mars Attacks and Independence Day are both profoundly stupid movies with impressive casts and neat scores. The difference is, Independence Day is actually a fun movie.

    I never understood what is supposed to be so stupid about Independence Day . I see no stupid stuff in it, except for the Randy Quaid subplot, the dog escaping the fire wall and that stupid saluting guy. But then again, all Emmerich movies have that awful amount of saluting.

    I see great acting in the pivotal scenes and great chemistry between the actors all around, amazingly executed action scenes, a fantastic soundtrack and excellent visual effects.

    Does the whole computer virus resolution not strike you as kind of stupid? Or the fact that the President just hops in a plane at the end, despite the fact that he's one of the few government figures to have survived the attacks? Granted, it's fun to see the President lead the offensive, and it's fun to see the aliens taken down by such a simple measure, but....it's still pretty stupid.

    And I don't mean to present this as an indictment of the movie in any way. It's that fun.
