We all saw the movie Avatar right, we all saw the wonderful world of Pandora and its beautiful colors, inhabitants and creatures that it took James Cameroon 15 years to make. Well not everything in the movie is fictional, as you can see from the pictures below.
The picture above is of the flying Toruks from the movie Avatar and the picture below is from Indonesia.
Oliver Stones sequel to his first movie Wall Street comes 23 years later, but better late than never. The movie should be released by April 23rd.
The film is set 23 years after the first film, in June 2008, and Gordon Gekko has just been released from prison. Despite his initial attempts to warn Wall Street of the forthcoming economic downturn and stock market crash, no one believes him due to his reduced standing in the financial world. Gekko decides to re-focus his attention on rebuilding his relationship with his estranged daughter, Winnie. Due to their time apart, and the fact that Winnie blames Gekko for her brother Rudy’s suicide, she avoids any contact with him. At the same time, the mentor of young Wall Street trader Jacob unexpectedly dies, and Jacob suspects his hedge fund manager of being involved in the death. Jacob, who is Winnie’s fiance, seeks revenge and agrees to Gekko’s offer of help, in return for which Jacob agrees to help Gekko with Winnie.
This is one of the best spoof videos I’ve seen in a while. The kid is really funny . I really hope they sign him up for Batman 3 instead of Christian Bale.

M.Night Shyamalan’s 2010 summer blockbuster The Last Airbender should be a great movie. I just hope he doesn’t ruin the series.
Yesterday, after the GulfRun, we went to City Center mall here in Bahrain to grab a bite an a movie. We arrived there late and ended up just seeing a movie and postponing dinner to later.
First of all, let me say I love Denzel Washington, and I really had great expectations for this movie. But I was disappointed.
The movie is nothing more than a Christianity commercial, and ended up pulling some stupid moves I hated from the movie “A Perfect Getaway” which is basically lying and making you think that something is true when its not just to pull a “Sixth Sense” Where this movie fails miserably.
I wouldn’t say I don’t recommend it, because I know a few people loved “A Perfect Getaway” so I will just say the I didn’t like.
George Lucas sent this to James Cameron when Titanic passed Star Wars at the box office in 1998.
What a good sport.
The Numbers came out today, its now official. Avatar is now the highest grossing movie of all time with $1.288 billion passing Titanic, the movie that was holding the record for the past 13 years, by a mere $46 million ($1.242 billion) last Saturday.
What’s funny is James Cameron directed both of these movies, so between them, James Cameron has made more than 2.5 Billion with 2 movies. He also directed one of the best Sci-Fi movies of all time, yes I’m talking about Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
I thought James Cameron conceived the Avatar idea 15 years ago? But this is just too similar, isn’t it?
So, Avatar is nothing but a futuristic Pocahontas eh?
