Thank god you understand that Avatar's plot is fine. Seriously, if you only have a few movies to compare the plot to after 50+ years of movies, you've got a decent plot.

A worrying trend I'm noticing in ETTM: The videos are gradually getting shorter.
It's still an excellently informative series but I worry that the decreased length means Bob is drawing most of it out.

Here here.

Everyone who keeps pointing out that avatars plot has been done before is just railing against a popular movie for the sake of looking "cool" on the internet. Imo.

It was remarkably well presented, visually spectacular, the characters and settings where remarkably fleshed out. Even if it is just dances with wolves again its on of the best dances with wolves movies out there.

Wow, your Brooklyn accent's really strong in this one. Anyway, I haven't heard of this movie before but it looks good. I might have to check it out.

This looks good, but thriller really isn't my thing, plus I'm probably too young to see it.

I can probably guess the plot twist right now, as you said, it looks easy, shame many films these days are similar (probably because we have so many) and so therefore it's a lot easier to guess plots.

Still, it looks beautiful from the trailers being shown in the background.

Also, what is with the gangster accent poppin' in every 2 seconds? Or is it just me?

I'm going to see it, sure, but I'm not really looking forward to it, Scorsese, Kingsley, and Leo or not.

Happy Birthday movie Bob. Why the New Yawker accent?. I haven't seen this movie just yet but well Scorsese hasn't failed me yet and I've been looking forward to playing this movie since I saw his name on it.

It's a New England accent, actually. Bostonian, to be precise

Yeah, MovieBob representin' New England. Nice review. I've been dying to see Shutter Island. I actually met Martin Scorsese when he came up to NESCom to talk to the Audio and Video kids. He's a pretty cool guy.

Happy Birthday Bob, by the way
