It’s not that I’ve chilled on Avatar anticipation. I was rocked by the special 3D ComicCon presentation, but the Avatar Day reel, as I wrote on 8,.22, left me “feeling a little Avatar-ed out…no bump-up…like before only less so…doesn’t play as well the second time.” I only know that every time I run Avatar in my head, I still see a flash of Bruno Ganz’s Hitler. Intriguing as the latest trailer is, I can’t expunge what’s been, for me, the funniest fan-rant of the year. Sorry…it’ll pass.
It’s not that I’ve chilled on Avatar anticipation. I loved the 24-minute 3D reel that I saw at Comic-Con last July. But the 16-minute Avatar Day preview, as I mentioned on 8,22, “left me feeling a little Avatar-ed out…no bump-up…same as before only less so because an Avatar visual highlights reel doesn’t wear as well the second time.” The truth is that every time I run Avatar through my head, a flash of Bruno Ganz’s Hitler comes to mind. The most recent trailer, intriguing as it is, hasn’t expunged, for me, one of the funnest fan-rants of the year.
