Honestly, Does Anyone Care About a New, "Avatar," Movie?

James Cameron made a film called, "Avatar." It was decently entertaining and had really good special effects but otherwise was quite forgettable. Many people said the plot was basically, "Dances with Wolves," and the dialogue and plot was clunky (they literally called the valuable mineral the humans were after unobtanium). "Avatar," was--for reasons still beyond me and others--a massive hit that made a ton of money. Then it barely left any kind of cultural footprint besides looking pretty. I seriously cannot member the names of any of the characters the actors played beyond the main one, Jake Sully. I only remember that because when I hear, "Sully," I think of the, "Monsters' Inc." movies. For years we were promised a sequel to, "Avatar," and everyone shrugged at the idea. Now, we have to face the fact that it is actually happening with, "Avatar: The Way of Water."

I saw the trailer for, "Avatar: The Way of Water," when I saw the new, "Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness," flick. Upon watching the trailer all I could do was mutter under my breath, "Who is asking for this?" Here is the preview if you want to see it:

Yeah, that definitely looks like a movie. Not a movie that will necessarily be bad, by any means. It just looks like one that will have great effects and keep us busy for a couple hours...and then is promptly forgotten after a viewing. As you can tell, I'm not very enthusiastic about, "Avatar: The Way of Water," but it should be a perfectly fine movie. Just one nobody asked for.
