If blue Pocahontas was on Spielberg’s level of creativity maybe I’d even feel somewhat bad but honestly the guy’s been involved in like three movies in the last two decades and all of them have been mediocre in every capacity barring a good sales pitch so what’s up?

HeadShot is I suppose what you would call a "sore winner." Glad some fellow Marvel fans in this thread are trying to show some class at least.

Say what you want about Jim, he's still going to be remembered as one of greatest of all time, as opposed to a bitter online complainer who barely acknowledges reality.

It's also a little ironic that you describe him as "bitter", when he's shown nothing but graciousness, it's clear who is the bitter one.

As a person who has zero ties to both Marvel and Avatar, I'd like to ask @NCsoft a question.

 

If Endgame had a 'normal' late run expansion, say around Labor Day Weekend for two weeks, would you feel the same about how it would have broken the record, given late expansions happen all the time for various movies for various reasons?

kind of agree about Avatar, but did you just call Titanic and true lies "mediocre movies" or I saw something wrong?

I honestly don't see how they haven't permanently banned you from this site. 

Me either, KJsooner is known to use reproductive organ related descriptors when it comes to Jim Fans, if not that, it's some other sort of sinister insult. But I think it's clear that there is a double standard that exist here in terms of temporarily or permanently banning people.

Being remembered doesn’t mean you were particularly good at your craft. Marilyn Monroe is considered to be “one of the best actresses” of all time too and her capacity as an actress is even more questionable than Jim’s directing. 

 

Thankfully we have people like Nolan who rely on effective and good storytelling to sell their movies rather than gimmicks. 

 

Also with streaming taking off in the capacity it is and blockbusters becoming quite affordable there’s not going to be much left of Jim’s creations to stand the test of time unlike other talented directors whose story and effective storytelling remains one for the history books.

Oorrrr, maybe they aren't reported enough?  

 

Like I always say, if you have a problem with how a forum is run, message the mods/admins privately and express your concerns.  Just complaining in the open forum isn't gonna do much about it, IMO.

Mainly referring to Avatar and Alita. Both his creative efforts in the last two decades and both very weak and ineffective when it comes to their writing and storytelling.

He won't tho, let's be honest here and without any disrespect

 

Kjsooner is being disrespectful and uses stupid tone lately, but if he is deserved to be banned so as iron  jimbo too, who has been posting troll comments and inciting fan wars multiple times.

 

I have been lurking year for over a year before creating account, so I know a bit about the behavior of some members.

Your analogy makes zero sense, Monroe is a modern cultural icon and she's remembered for precisely that, she is not remembered for her craft, and I haven't heard anyone regarding her as "one of the best actresses". Monroe is not more famous than Bette Davis and Katharine Hepburn because people admire her craft more. If Cameron is remembered, it will be because of his craft, James Cameron is not Marilyn Monroe, he will be remembered for his box office domination as well, obviously, the unique ability to connect with global audiences is undoubtedly a talent that Cameron possesses.

 I will not be baited into bashing Nolan by the way, I have great respect for him.

All I iz saying is if you think someone is breaking rules, report them.  I've done my fair share of reporting folks who are supposed to be on "my side" of an issue.

 

Truth be told, I kinda try to report them more often coz I don't like "my side" looking bad, whatever that current side may be.

James Cameron will be remembered for his craft. But the said craft still belongs more with the likes of her rather than talented directors like Spielberg, Nolan, Tarantino, etc.

 

It doesn’t help that none of these directors take the time he does for their concepts that are far more effective and engaging. He relies on gimmicks to sell rather than his skills as a director and that’s precisely why once you strip him off of them there’s not much of a story to tell. 

 

Alita and Avatar are bottom of the barrel concepts and for someone who has spent the last two decades focusing almost solely on them it’s realiy not much of a payoff.

 

But I guess one looked good in 3D and whatever it is that Alita’s worth and justification to even exist is.

but I just wished it was a better circumstances, in a true record breaking fashion, from a truly groundbreaking film. 

:hahaha:   

 

Endgame is the most groundbreaking cinematic achievement of the millennium.

Many of his movies are highly regarded for their effective storytelling. It's why many of his movies still figure on top of many favorite lists. It's why he created some of the most iconic characters of all time. It's why his movies are still referenced today numerous times (like Aliens and Terminator in Infinity War and Endgame) You make no sense whatsoever. Also questioning his craft? He started in the business as a special effect technician, and as a result won Oscars for nearly all of his movies in that field. Hell, he brought CGI on the map. Do you think CG is a gimmick?
