The only thing I can remember from the first one was "Unobtanium."

Still a better film than AVATAR.

Me too.

And it wasn't even particularly good. It has this "hey, I'm trying hard and I'm failing in unusual ways for a blockbuster!".

I've never seen JC. The look of it reminds me too much of AotC, which is about the worst visual style I've ever clapped eyes on.

Still can't get over the trailer. How they used Led Zep's Kashmir to make a Disdey film seem bad-ass!

Sigourney Weaver to play completely new character in Avatar sequels:

James Cameron: "Sigourney and I have a long creative history, dating back to 1985 when we made 'Aliens.' We're good friends who've always worked well together, so it just feels right that she's coming back for the 'Avatar' sequels. Her character of Grace Augustine, as fans know, died in the first movie, so she's playing a different and in many ways more challenging character in the upcoming films. We’re both looking forward to this new creative challenge, the latest chapter in our long and continuing collaboration."

He doesn't own the rights to the Alien franchise, I hope. Imagine that, Alien and Avatar in one universe! Would a xenomorph jump on the back of one of those flying Avatar creatures to pursue Ripley? Yes, in a James Cameron movie, it would!

How many drops for you is this, lieutenant?

Thirty-eight. Simulated.

How many avatar drops?

Uh, two. Including this one.

Shit.

Oh-ho, man...

And I already had a problem with mama xenomorphs that take the elevator! Nah, I prefer Scott's vagueness so that you wonder how it ever got there ... Keep it mysterious! It incites the mind.

(no wonder I'm not a big Nolan fan)

I suppose you're right. If you're gonna go the Cameron route—elevator-takers 'n' such—might as well go full tilt and have someone secretly use alien DNA to create xenomorph avatars, then put aliens in the "tanning bed" things. You'd wind up with big blue cat-things with long heads and extending tooth-tongues. Eywa would have a fit. (And then Predators would show up to hunt the Pandoran black panthers, of course, and all hell would break loose. . . .)
