Maybe They'll Make A Blue Statue

So Avatar is the big winner from the Golden Globes and looks to be a big contender for the Oscars.

Le sigh.

It's not that Avatar wasn't good. It's that Avatar wasn't great. It was spectacular, in that it was comprised almost entirely of spectacle, and it's a shoe-in for the would-be do-gooders, because it is to the environment what Crash was to racism (that is, an underwhelming movie about a severely dated issue).

So, I guess it's bound to win. In a way, I'm kind of glad that I don't so much follow the Oscars anymore.

It's not that they're meaningless, it's just that they're extremely light-weight. Although, against my better judgments, I'm starting to kind of want to see it in 3D. I have yet to see a live-action movie in 3D, and there are some technical issues that I'd like to get a better, ahem, focus on.
