Phantom Menace Reviewer Takes on Avatar

zz54622b5a
In December, we made a post about a guy named Mike from Milwaukee, WI, who created a 70-minute video review of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace. The 7-part dissection tore apart George Lucas’ first installment of the prequel trilogy, and was linked by almost every website known to man. In fact, the video now has over 1.25 million views on YouTube alone. Even geek celebs like Damon Lindelof commented on the review. If you are one of the few who hasn’t seen it – click here now!

Well, Mike is back, this time with a less elaborate 18-minute video review of James Cameron‘s Avatar. Watch the two-part video review now, after the jump.

Part 1 focuses on the story, the forced cultural message, comparisons to Cameron’s Titanic, the problem with the two-dimension villains, the unexplored problems of savage races without technology, how Cameron tricked audiences into falling in love with an alien race.

Part 2 focuses on the secret meanings behind the words of the world of Avatar, the Titanic/Aliens mach-up, the argument of the film being more about the experience than about the plot, how Fox/Cameron took advantage of a strategic release date, and Mike’s conclusion about the film.

Thanks to MikeyK for the tip.
