No 'Avatar' For Me

I won't be seeing 'Avatar.'
I don't usually do sensationalistic sci-fi, fantasy or fantastical movies.
You see, I find real people and real life to be much more interesting.
Oh, I know that Avatar won the Golden Globe and it's made a lot of $$$ and it may win the Oscar.
I understand. And I appreciate the fact that a lot of people like this stuff.
But I'm gonna pass on it.
Besides, I'm not a big fan of James Cameron flicks, anyway. I thought Titanic was hugely overrated.
Enjoy Avatar if you wish.
But don't look for any review of the film (at least by me) here on this site.

Personally, I'd wouldn't visit his films because of his support of eco-terrorism. What a maroon!

Dear Dan,

My name is Barbara O’ Brien and my blogging at The Mahablog, Crooks and Liars, AlterNet, and elsewhere on the progressive political and health blogophere has earned me the notoriety of being a panelist at the Yearly Kos Convention and a featured guest blogger at the Take Back America Conference in Washington, DC.

I’m contacting you because I found your site in a prominent political and health blog search and want to tell you about my newest blogging platform —the public concern of health care. Our shared concerns include health reform, public health, safe workplaces, and asbestos contamination.

To increase awareness on these important issues, my goal is to get a resource link on your site or even allow me to provide a guest posting. Please contact me back, I hope to hear from you soon. In the meantime, take a look at the MAA Center blog.

Finally! This is exactly how I feel. I hate movies and shows that are based on fantasy. But apparently I'm out of touch... I guess we're both out of touch. But I'll be sitting this one out as well.

Hey MJ... I guess the only answer to that is worrrrrk! When I first started with the Senator it was just simply helping out constituents. Over the past year it's changed drastically. While responsibilities have increased so has the workload. Politics is 24/7 information gathering. I never expected this much. I'm not complaining though, love every minute of it!! How's life?

I won't be seeing 'Avatar' too!
I think that Avatar and other movies of this kind are not cinema. It's just buisness.
I've made a facebook group against 'Avatar'. The group is written in Italian:
"Quelli che non andranno MAI a vedere AVATAR" that is: NO AVATAR.
Please support our group
