Non-Review: Avatar - Review by Thomas, Jeffrey and Smith (aka The Shrunken Heads)

Thomas: Hello and welcome to another Shrunken Heads review. This week it's Avatar.

Smith: Hibbee.

Thomas: Pardon?

Smith: I said "Hibbee."

Thomas: I have no idea what that means.

Smith: That's my sarcastic exclamation of excitement.

Thomas: Let me guess, you didn't like it.

Smith: Not particularly.

Thomas: What didn't you like about it?

Smith: The story was a little flimsy. Sort of cliché science fiction plots that have been done a billion times.

Jeffrey: That's kind of a wishy washy answer.

Smith: How d'you mean "wishy washy?"

Jeffrey: Every time we watch a fantasy or sci-fi flick, you always complain that it's 'cliché' or done to death. It's not always about what device in the story is used, but how it's utilized. Most movies have base in other older stories, but that doesn't mean they can't still be good or original.

Thomas: So I take it you enjoyed the film Jeffrey?

Jeffrey: No, I didn't care for it. I thought it was good, just not my cup of tea.

Thomas: How come?

Jeffrey: Surprisingly I've lost my taste for anything involving a tribal atmosphere.

Thomas: Yeah, no surprise there. What did you think of Sam Worthington's performance?

Smith: Johnny no legs? He delivered a solid performance I guess. Just too bad he didn't have much to work with.

Jeffrey. You're an idiot. (sam) Worthington was excellent in a role built for heavy lifting.

Smith: The main character usually is.

Jeffrey: Shush! What I mean is, it's a role that requires a lot of different emotional paces, and he dives through them admirably.

Thomas: Sam Worthington is an actor I always enjoy.

Jeffrey: I as well.

Thomas: A lot has been said about the effects in this movie. What was your impression, worth the hype?

Smith: Oh yes definitely. You watch the previews and think to yourself, no way is that going to work, they just look so crappy and ill designed. But when you're watching it unfold in 3D, you totally become immersed in this fantastical alien world. It's too bad it's the only part of the movie that does.

Jeffrey: Blah blah blah. Quit your bitching. Please explain to me how using an avatar to access a planet that humans can't tolerate is so cliché?

Smith: I didn't highlight that in particular, did I? Anyone ever tell you you look like a squashed cabbage?

Jeffrey: Yes. Anyone ever tell you that you look like a co-

Thomas: Gentlemen, please. Let's try to remain civil.

Smith: You're right. Sorry Jeffrey.

Jeffrey: Good on you Thomas. Smith, from the bottom recesses of my soul I am ashamed, please except my apology; my humble plea for forgiveness.

Smith: You just had to one up me again didn't you? That's it, one more word from you and I'll roll over there and bite you! You hear me?

Jeffrey: Word.

Smith: That's it!

Thomas: I guess I better close before things go too far. Personally, I was pleasantly surprised by the film which offered an exciting and stimulating adventure, much like I used to enjoy when I was a younger lad with a body. A lot of talk about a bloated budget and an out of control Cameron had me worried, but I would highly recommend this film to anyone wanting let their imagination run wild for a couple hours. Any closing thoughts gentlemen?

Smith: Gnar Rmm Mrawr

Jeffrey: Son of a b- he bit me!
