Alrighty. I have one follower. Who I hope reads this. Anyhow- Avatar. Directed and written by James Cameron, with at least two films that make the top ten highest grossing films EVER.
Guess which one's number one? That's right. Avatar. A milestone in cinematic history which made leaps and bounds using technology to bring visual pleasure to the next level. Genius ideas and hard work completed this absolutely thrilling piece of work.
This movie boasts a star-studded cast, including Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Stephen Lang, Sigourney Weaver, Michelle Rodriguez, and many more outstanding actors and actresses.
The year was 2014. I was first introduced to this movie while flipping channels, coming upon Avatar. I remembered hearing about it when I was younger and never went to see it. This particular showing was nearly over, but I decided to watch the rest of it.
Afterwards, I was enthralled, awestruck, and completely in love. The first chance I got, I purchased the Collector's Addition with three different cuts of the movie. (Everytime I watch it, I choose the longest one) After I watched the entire movie and got a good feel for Avatar, I was very involved in it.
I loved everything about the movie. The way it looked, sounded, felt, and the message it sent as well. Being a movie nerd, I did my research and found out Avatar 2 was set for December of 2015! Not too long a wait. I was overjoyed and eagerly waited.
Then I figured out it was moved back to December of 2016. I was a bit disappointed but I was willing to push through. I was, and still is, very much stimulated by the possibilities of the upcoming installments. Especially with the advance in technology yet since 2009.
So I ambled through 2014, eager to get to 2015. And hopefully 2016 would soon be on its way. To pass the time I did research for fun on the characters, language, etc; and of course rewatched the movie a few times.
I was immersed in the world of Pandora. And gleefully so. I watched videos on YouTube of 6 part game walkthroughs, and discovered the game was made and released before the movie- which I found interesting. I watched interviews with James Cameron on his updates for the sequels. Then I found out a while later that it was moved back yet again until 2017.
I was sad. That was a long time to wait- and even though we're almost halfway through 2015, that's a good year and a half of siting and waiting for the sequel. I'm kind of afraid they're gonna move it back to 2018, but at the same time, I doubt it highly.
But waiting is..kinda hard. Especially for something you so desire to see and feel again. It kinda feels like getting a new toy. And it's a great feeling. Even though I'm not the most patient of people, I'm positive the reward will be worth it.
And if you haven't seen it, if you really want a movie to honestly, emotionally move you, and you want to see the world in a new light, I highly suggest you see it.
So there ya have it. My view on why waiting for something you're so devoted and into is hard. But I love Avatar, and I'm very excited to view and experience Avatar 2. I'm sure James Cameron won't let me down. Yay for movies! :D
