It’s a new James Cameron movie… the cinematic equivalent of Haley’s Comet, with all the time he takes between movies. That alone makes it a massive event for most cinefiles.
And regardless of story, I had a blast watching the first one. It was an epic theater experience. I expect the same here because that’s what Cameron does best and he does it better than anyone else ever has.
But the early reviews also gushed about the story, which I was skeptical about before reading them, so that got me even more excited. Now that I’ve gotten a larger sample of reviews, that’s tempered my expectations on that front. So now I’m super stoked simply in anticipation of Cameron giving my eye-balls a 3 hour orgasm and anything beyond that will be gravy again.
And if all of that’s a problem for you, then you can take your next condescending “wow” and shove it where the Sun don’t shine, Stout.
