Interest peaked before the "full" trailer was released.  Who knew dialogue and shitty YJ emo-pop music will kill any hope this adaption will be good.

Just to shit on the eyes a bit more, nobody else has the anime sex doll eyes in the movie. Would have made slightly more passable sense if there was at least one other damn critter. AI2: Salvage Job

So give her blue skin or something. Anything would have been better than that shit.

I guarantee you that the preview screeners all came out hating on the eyes but someone's ego was involved so they stayed.

I kinda like the eyes; not enough to go see this in theaters (since the wife has zero interest), but I'm excited enough to check it out when it hits Netflix/Hulu/whatever.

I'll watch this. It looks like fun, I know nothing about the source material. The plot summary from the Wikipedia article sounds like a hot mess anyway, so .. whatever  awesome, for real

But yes, some of the CGI could and should be improved.

Guys, its a James Cameron passion project.  His record has been pretty consistent.  At the very least, we should get an entertaining spectacle movie thats fun to watch in theaters even if the plot is silly and easy to make fun of.  At best we get like, T2 I guess (but highly doubting that).

Obviously he could totally fuck it up, but willing to give him the benefit of the doubt he’ll make something watchable (and not just another Ghost in the Shell movie fuck up).

Cameron and passion project should be words of warning to wasting your money.

What are these bad movies you guys speak of?  I'm having a hard time coming up with anything truly terrible he's done (honest question, I'm sure I'm missing something).

His last two passion projects were Avatar and Titanic.

And both of those are examples of what I was just saying.  Both where great flashy visual movies that were fun to watch in theaters, had a basic but mostly inoffensive plot, and are not worth rewatching ever again.  This movie turning out as good as Titanic or Avatar is one of the best case scenarios, and it would money well spent at the theater if so.

Cameron is just producing it. He's too busy making 3-4 more Avatar movies to direct this himself. Robert Rodriguez is directing which is the bigger warning sign since the quality of his movies is very inconsistent.

Well, he also wrote the script (along with Laeta Kalogridis), so his involvement is a bit deeper than that.

Which given the assloads of money both brought in seemed to have found a viable market with people who did enjoy them.

how many times do we have to go over this

being popular and making a shitload of money doesn't actually make something good

it just makes something popular and profitable

Well if it's unprofitable and you don't ever want to hear about it again until the hoi polloi at Cannes give it some prizes, then you really should be here for the Toronto Film Festival. Every year you have to chance to sit through dozens of government subsidized films out of Quebec. They're said to be good but believe me you'll never want to hear about a mopey, angsty teenager for the rest of your life.
