James Cameron is a douche who only gets away with it because most of his movies turn out decent. Good luck on people caring about the 5 million Avatar sequels.

I loved Avatar…sue me.

I liked Avatar, it was a fun movie. But, making 4 sequels… sheesh!

In all fairness, Hollywood set a terrible precedent when a Transformers Cinematic Universe was announced.

I wish the original Transformers trilogy was handled a lot better. Too much human scenes, not enough Transformers. They also royally screwed the designs of the Transformers. Devastator was not well executed at all. If they followed the source material a little closer, while tweaking somethings, it could’ve been a much better Trilogy. That could’ve ended the story, with no need for making more movies.

I’ve only see the first Human Centipede. I still want to check out 2 and 3.

They even had some groups buy out the entire Theater, then ask for a refund, to ensure the seats cannot be purchased again.

Wow, sure that stops people from seeing the film but it certainly gives the box office a boost haha!

Not if they ask for a refund, so the movie doesn’t make the actual money, and doesn’t get reported to the Box Office.

Avatar was actually pretty awesome as a 3D experience in the theater.

As a 2D movie? It’s pretty meh

Yes it was a fun 3D experience. One of the first big movies to bring back 3D again. This time, it’s sticking… until Hologram movies becomes a thing.

The Promise (2016)

When I saw this poster art, I couldn’t help but be reminded of 1492: Conquest of Paradise. Both posters use somewhat similar colour schemes too.

After checking the poster, it’s true, they do have similar colours.
It’s possible “1492: Conquest of Paradise” poster’s use of colours denotes nautical themes.
However, the colours used on “The Promise” poster represent the Armenian flag.

IMDB Ratings for The Promise http://www.imdb.com/title/tt4776998/ratings?ref_=tt_ov_rt
10/10 - 53% of votes
1/10 - 44% of votes

There’s campaign to downvote the film going on and others trying to counteract it: http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/hollywood-is-losing-battle-online-trolls-992582

That is correct. They put those Turkish bots everywhere to downvote the film. They even had some groups buy out the entire Theater, then ask for a refund, to ensure the seats cannot be purchased again.

The Turkish government and lobbyists do this every year, when the Anniversary of the Genocide rolls around.

Turkey has released their own movie about World War 1, “The Ottoman Lieutenant”, starring Ben Kingsley.

Finally tried Star Fox Zero for the Wii U. God was I disappointed. Only because of the controls. Had they just allowed the player to use the pro controller and play it like a typical starfox game I would have enjoyed it. It was pretty fun at first, but all the shoehorned in gamepad elements killed it for me. They could have kept that and allowed use of the pro controller with a scheme set up similar to Assault for the gamecube and I would have been on board. I may try it again at some point.

Maybe Starfox could’ve had the WiiU gamepad used for secondary functions. Use the gamepad’s screen for a 2nd player, like a co-pilot. Then everyone can be like Chewie. Sort of like how New Super Mario Bros Wii U uses the gamepad for creating boxes & killing enemies on the screen.

What is the best batman retro game?

One thing for sure, don’t look at Batman Forever on the SNES. The controls are crap.
