SDCC 2009: 'Avatar' Impressions Roundup

[Photo from the 'Avatar' video game]

-- "25 minutes of Avatar in 3D played, and it surpassed all expectations and anything the guy who gave us Terminator 2 has ever done. What Cameron has done with CGI and performance capture, and making it look photo-real in 3D, is akin to what Miyazaki has done with animation." -- Phil Pirrello, IGN

-- "Basically, today James Cameron walked into a room with 6,000 people and pulled out his dick and slapped it on the table. With an HD camera pointing right at it ... Avatar is really, really, really, really cool. It is not photoreal." -- Drew McWeeney, HitFix

-- "Sorry, folks, but while the most fully realized and wholly immersive CGI achievement in cinematic history probably won't cure peptic ulcers or reverse male-pattern-baldness, it will definitely make you go "whoa" more times than Keanu Reeves on his first visit to the Long Beach Aquarium." -- Seth Abramovitch, Movieline

-- "Cameron proves again that he can combine high-octane thrills with human drama, creating palpable emotional depth both for and between the characters even as he subjects them to physical derring-do that otherwise seems impossible." -- Todd Gilchrist, Cinematical

-- "This is an evolutionary jump, not a revolutionary leap. I didn't experience movies in a whole new way, and nothing I saw on screen left me feeling more than impressed. What the movie represents is someone putting real money into the current CGI and mocap tech and shoving it an extra step forward." -- Devin Faraci,

-- "What I saw were glimpses at a fantastic bit of storytelling, a rich fantasy tale, by a master of the artform, but the CGI creatures and characters are just that. They're amazingly executed, no doubt, but it's not like when you saw your first CG dinosaur and you said, "This is a game changer" to yourself." -- Quint, AICN Read more!

3-D In Review-Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Three years after Ice Age: The Meltdown, comes Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.The animation is very good (there are some impressive scenes), and the voice-overs (with the return of the main voice cast, and with the addition of new characters, like the one voiced by Simon Pegg) are good too, and there are hilarious moments, but..

As far as 3-D is concerned, it's obvious that the movie wasn't designed with that in mind or with that as a significant element.There are some 3-D scenes, but they don't really add something essential to the experience.In other words, the 3-D effects are nice, but you won't miss anything if you watch the 2-D version.

Ice Age 3 is an entertaining movie, but it's weaker than the previous installments. Read more!

First photo: Scarlett Johansson as Black Widow in 'Iron Man 2', and new info

From this week's issue of Entertaiment Weekly:

  • Sam Rockwell plays a fast-talking weapons manufacturer named Justin Hammer, “who fancies himself the next Tony Stark”
  • Mickey Rourke plays Russian criminal Vanko, who creates his own battle-suit while incarcerated in a Soviet prison.
  • Whiplash’s suit “shoots devastating, whip-like beams.”
  • Hammer and Whiplash join forces to take on Stark/Iron Man,
  • Rourke insisted that his character have a cockatoo, which he talks to and gets drunk with while he’s making the suit.
  • Scarlett Johansson plays Russian superspy (possibly undercover?) Natasha Romanoff (aka the Black Widow), who is hirede as Stark’s assistant which inevitably sparks romantic tension between Stark and former assistant Pepper Potts (Gwyneth Paltrow), who’s been promoted to CEO of Stark Industries.

'Robocop' delayed?

According to RiskyBizBlog Darren Aronofsky could shoot supernatural horror 'Black Swan' later this year (Natalie Portman is already cast in the lead), which would push production on Robocop back to mid-2010. The delay could still conceivably see the film hit screens in 2011 ,as previously planned.
However, it's also making MGM nervous, with the studio apparently "quietly putting out feelers for other directors who could come on to Robocop in case the timing doesn't work out."
