Happy Trails Hans: Avatar

AvatarpicI’ll get you Harry Potter… I’ll get you Robin Hood… I’ll get you John McClane… I must apologise: where was I? Ah yes, a new trailer. This one looks like its been in more films than I have…

Ah, the Event Horizon, must be a sequel. No wait, that’s the craft from the Enterprise TV series opening credits, I am certain of it. That’s one of the robots from the new Terminator movie surely? Perhaps this is a young Professor X over to tell me it’s another X-men Origins film. Like we need another of those.

I see they’ve painted the power loader from Alien a charming grey. Oh, it’s that chap from Terminator: Salvation, I knew this was a Terminator sequel. And what, pray tell, is that? Well at least it didn’t open its eyes as the music climaxed – finally, something original. It’s all looking a bit Minority Report now. Sliders/Dr Who stock effects, perhaps a big screen transition for one of them? I’ve got it – Thundercats: The Movie. That is a taller, thinner Panthro, no? With hair?

That’s a Hornet from Halo. That’s that big cat thing from Revenge of the Sith. That’s Lothlorien forest from Lord of the Rings. That’s a Nazgul Fell Beast from Lord of the Rings too. Oh, it’s called Avatar. Might I suggest ‘Rise of the Plague’ as a subtitle? A lot of ‘homages’ in there – though they are all homages to good stuff.

VERDICT: Thank you Mr Cowboy, I’ll take it under advisement.

  1. Part of me is skeptical, but James Cameron’s the shit, so I’m seeing it. Just hope it lives up to hype.

  2. This is a pretty exciting movie the trailer is a bit rubbish. It makes it all look a little dull!
