    So let's see:

    #2 = The Most Expensive Movie ever made, eclipsing #1
    #3 = The Most Expensive Movie ever made, eclipsing #2

    So what about $1bil for #3?

    I'm hearing that "The Hobbit" will be eclipsing the third "Pirates of the Carribean" movie as the most expensive budget.

    I wonder what cliched, trite, over used, or politically correct, plot Cameron will rehash?

    Let's see. He took "Dances with Wolves" script and made them blue creatures instead of indians. I think #2 could use the script from "Casablanca" (the one about Nazi's) and for ease, #3 could be the script from "Casablanca" (the one with the Marx brothers.)

    See, this movie stuff isn't hard at all.

    Big pay checks don't necessarily indicate creativity or originality, take the singing fetus for example.
    Fools and their money.........:D

    I thought it was Pocahantas that was hacked.

    So next it could be Little Blue Mermaid, Snow Nextiri, or Cindatar.

    I really hate Cameron's work. Hate it.

    Give me John Ford, Frank Capra, or Hitchcock any day. Cameron's a hack who's good with technology (very good, actually). But as a director, history will look at his work very badly.

    Unfortunately, it'll be 2050 before we know if I'm right about that :)

    Not sure if you realize this, but those guys are all dead.

    Sometimes I actually like to watch new movies that I haven't seen before (preferably by directors that are alive).

    I liked Avatar OK but I'm not sure I want to spend six to eight more hours in that universe.

    To name a few: John Ford, Alfred Hitchcock (The Master of Suspense), Frank Capra, John Sturges, Howard Hawks, Michael Curtiz, Akira Kurosawa, Victor Fleming and Sam Peckinpah. Yes we realize they are all dead but every one of them have turned out some of the finest and timeless films ever made. And may I add they are considered legends by today's living directors!
