Have you ever noticed that movies can seem a bit predictable? I’m not complaining, it must be near impossible to come up with a storyline that no-one has thought of before. And if you do, chances are that people won’t like it. The fact of the matter is that Hollywood knows what sells and they keep selling it. And knowing this we continue to buy it and then complain that it was unoriginal. Funny.
A friend at work just sent me this.
Thanks Matt Bateman (I don’t know who you are, but your name is on the image so I assume you were the author of this piece of work.
personally I thought Avatar was a remake of countless high school romantic comedies. You know the one where:
- The Popular Girl breaks up with her Popular Boy
- PB wants to get back at PG and make her jealous.
- PB’s friends dare him to date Unpopular (and usually unattractive) Girl.
- PB accepts dare, but as he gets to know UG he falls for her.
- On the eve of prom UG finds out about the dare and tearfully breaks it off with PB
- PB is devastated.
- PB does something heroic to win UG’s affections (back) (usually this has something to do with dissing PG).
- PB and UG (who turns out to be devastatingly beautiful in a prom dress) get back together again (for real this time).
Having said all that I loved Avatar. Especially the funky ponytail filamenty things.
