We know the fight, Hurt Locker vs Avatar

Small budget content rich flick vs Large budget special effects flick

Real story writing with human intrest and a sense of drama induced not by the whiz bang guys a the 3DFX lab

And the winner is ... yup Content over Flash Whizz Wii generation

Analogies to STO quite frankly astound me

And yet, Avatar has made more money. So who really won?

Not to mention, you must not be aware of the controversy surrounding Hurt Locker.

Proof that content and style doesn't make much money? $21 million world-wide.

If by controversy you mean the banning of Chartier the producer for mailing members of the acadamey, lol that SHOULD have worked against the film not for it!!

I'm still looking for the impressive content in this game. I think you are saying that this game being a quick flashy phasers and photon game did it a great injustice right?

EDIT: I did like the ending to Avatar. Despite and politics and what have you tied to the real world I just watched it for what it was. I didn't bother to see it in 3D cause I wanted to remain as objective as possible when looking at the story.

Might have known you would have posted this up

Gross taking are not an indicator of the films quality,
Exhibit A - District 9, the best sci fi movie of the decade - original and a real story
Exhibit B - Star Wars 1 TPM JAR JAR BINKS

TPM may have grossed more than D9 but D9 is the superior film

that is all
