Avatar: The Way of Water movie review

AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER MOVIE REVIEW

It’s over a decade later (both in terms of the original film’s release and in the storyline) and Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and his wife Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña) have enjoyed a peaceful era, settling down with three children of their own, an adopted human child, and one ‘miracle baby’ or maybe ‘rape baby’…the movie quickly steers away from the question. But peaceful times are coming to an end as the colonizing humans are back in force and largely the same as last time, only now the dead baddies from the first film have had their pre-saved consciousnesses put into Na’vi avatars. Jake knows that their leader Colonel Quaritch (Stephen Lang) is out for his blood specifically so he takes the fam and flies out to another part of Pandora where the Na’vi evolved to be more water-oriented. So Jake and fam have to adjust to the new culture and learn ‘the way of water’ while the ever-looming of threat of the colonists looms. Chris, Marco, and Wright take on this movie and are not all on the same page about it. Here’s where you learn that the clickbait article titles about how EVERYONE loves the new Avatar movie aren’t 100%.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas in 1992 where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal” turned into a full-time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this community of critics. While Brian eventually followed his heart to a new family, Chris continues on with a cast of colorful folks from all over the country (and a few others). You can also check out Chris in his videocast, along with Martin Thomas and Danni Danger, that One Of Us does with our friends at Bell of Lost Souls: Crossover Event. He also regularly guests on the video game website Rage Select. Follow Chris on Twitter and Facebook and check out his Amazon Wish List.

By day, Marco is a mild-mannered office worker, but by night he is a mild-mannered movie watcher. He does other mild-mannered stuff too.

Wright hails from the northern suburbs of Dallas, Texas. His passion for filmmaking brought him to Austin to study and make movies. Since then he’s had his hand in acting, writing, and directing his own short films with numerous like-minded film geeks he’s met along his journey. His newest interest has brought him into the podcasting world. He co-hosted a few different movie related podcasts such as ‘And Now This’ and ‘The Match Cut’. He currently co-hosts with longtime friend, Eric Samaniego, where they talk shop about the grimiest, trashiest, lost gems of movies on their show, ‘Trash in the Can’. Wright also guests and hosts reviews on Screener Squad and Highly Suspect Reviews as well as co-hosts Digital Noise with Chris Cox.
