I've liked none of Guy Ritchie's movies.
No, not even Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.
And I'd rather be beaten and left for dead than endure Snatch again.
And yet I really do want to see Sherlock Holmes.
I've enjoyed most of James Cameron's career. Although I'm not sure I'm fully a fan of anything after The Terminator and Aliens, but I've generally enjoyed the rest.
And yet I'm utterly apathetic to Avatar.
Yeah, the use of the hypothetical element unobtainium makes me roll my eyes. As I've said, don't much care that it's real, I'd roll my eyes at a movie that made the number googol a major plot point, too.
But maybe I'll roll with it when I eventually see it. Maybe it'll feel fun and classic Marvel Comics like maybe it should.
Frankly, aside from that point, I'm really not one of the detractors either. I just can't find myself with the slightest bit of interest either way.
For a half-billion dollar 3-D movie. What's wrong with me?
