I refuse to stop being totally excited for Avatar, no matter how dodgy the trailers keep making it look to be. The reason for this is my complete and utter faith in the talents of James Cameron, noted director of some of the most crackling entertainments of the last 25 years of cinema.
To celebrate the release of his first narrative feature in an unthinkable 12 years, I have thrown myself to the task of yet another retrospective, which I hope shall start up today. Some of you are no doubt shaking your heads, recalling the still-active and very, very draining Disneython; others might ask, "And don't you think you should finish up that Pakula retrospective you've been working on for three months, eh?" To which I can make no response, as I am far too busy having hot, sweaty sex with your mother.
