Let's discuss how Avatar and Star Wars: The Force Awakens changed pop culture forever.
It's actually stunning how insignificant an impact Avatar has had since it was released and The Force Awakens in a lesser sense since it's still recent. It's been seven years and it earned 2.7 billion dollars yet I can't think of any references made to it in pop culture or any memorable quotes and scenes it imparted. The dialogue was reduced to such bare boned functionality and its characters so bland that it never really developed any kind of devoted following. Just look at how lukewarm the hype has been for announcements of its sequel. The Force Awakens...

what is he thinking here, /tv/?
Was this so hard to do?
fuck that sequel bait ending
Is it obvious for Murrican viewers too that this actor doesn't speak a shred of Spanish and just learned those lines phonetically?
In a patriotic mood following the EU referendum result, any recommendations /tv/?
Sean Beans finest work, pure Britkino.
Who do you consider to be the best director working today? What is your favorite film by them?
Kiarostami is one of the only directors working today who is canonized amongst directors like Bergman, Rohmer, Tarkovsky, etc. as one of the undisputed greatest world cinema directors of all time.
ITT: Well-developed characters.
>He doesn't know about the CIA-verse
How does it feel to be a hothead?
What do you call female actors? Actoresses? or Actorettes?
What the fuck was her problem?
She was breed as a military experiment, to be dropped into a combat zone after friendly troops evacuate, and cloak/sneak around killing enemy soldiers.
The incident on the park showed that iRex could detect and remove any implants to control/track and stun her, so for the sequel those shadowy dudes will come up with something else.

I this film to be pretty enjoyable tbqh.
I saw most of it on TV once, and stuck with it out of morbid curiosity.
My third-hand understanding of the flick was that it was SO god-awful, SO disastrously bad, that I went in with basically zero expectations. Starting from there it was easy to derive some ironic enjoyment and be halfway engaged with it. I didn't "like" it, but let's just say that I got some amusement, some pleasure out of watching it, it wasn't quite the chore I thought it would be.
It has a number of similarities with Avatar. Cheesy hackneyed entertainment, Humans versus much taller aliens, the visitors (humans in Avatar's case) don't need full space-suits but they do need a breathing apparatus. Bad, forgettable lines.
The one thing I thought was really stupid, apart from Travolta hamming it up, was how a single lit-match, or the equivalent of that, was enough to incenerate the alien planet's atmosphere.
