The Weekly Stuff Podcast #445 – The AVATAR Episode (The James Cameron movie, not the Nickelodeon show)
It’s time for another episode of The Weekly Stuff Podcast with Jonathan Lack & Sean Chapman, a weekly audio show that explores the worlds of film, television, and video games. You can subscribe for free in Apple Podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts.
After a trip to Sean’s Beta Corner to review the recent betas for Team Ninja’s Wo Long: Fallen Dynasty and Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II – Here We Go Again!, Sean and Jonathan hop over to Pandora (the planet, not the music app) for a deep dive on Avatar (the James Cameron movie, not the Nickelodeon show). It’s been 13 years since the film took the entire world by storm, becoming the highest-grossing film in history, and the film’s reputation hasn’t aged very gracefully. We haven’t seen it since its original theatrical run, so how do we think it holds up now? We get into the special effects, the world-building, the story, the terrible dialogue, the extremely uncomfortable racial overtones, and much more in this wide-ranging, rewarding conversation.
