Many of you may be aware of the fact that “Avatar: The Way of Water”, the follow up of the 2009 "Avatar", was just released. One of the stars is Sigourney Weaver, and we had the great pleasure of interviewing Sigourney with Ros Blackburn, a great friend of ours who is an autistic women from England. We invite you to listen again, or for the first time, to the episode we did with them. We have a discussion with Ros Blackburn, an autistic friend, colleague and international speaker from the UK who speaks with great insight about her autistic experience. In Barry's book, Uniquely Human, he shares so much of what he learned from Ros in their travel and presentations together, and Ros expands on her insights in today's discussion with great humor and candor. We surprise Ros when we are joined by the world-renowned actress, Sigourney Weaver, who played an autistic woman in the film “Snowcake”. Sigourney modeled her role after Ros, and by sharing time together in the US and UK, they developed a valued friendship. Sigourney and Ros reflect on that time, and all they learned in the process.

On the newest episode we talk Avatar: The Way of Water from director James Cameron. But first Anthony's got a comic haul he wants to share with us! Are the Commies making good comic book suggestions? Does the movie pace well? Is this visually the best movie ever? Was the CGI better for Thanos in Infinity War? How does the new movie pick up from the events of the last? Are we fans of the Sully family? Why did they have to bring Sigourney Weaver back? Is she going to be the Christ savior figure? Was Spider lame? What is surprising about Anthony liking Spider? Did they short Neytiri on screen time? Were the deaths sad? Is James Cameron going to go down as one of the best directors of all time? Was the last act basically Avatar: Titanic? What was James Cameron doing on 9/11? Was Stephen Lang coming back cool or lame? Should Quaritch keep coming back in the sequels? If Cody was in Avatar 2 would he be Payakan? Did Payakan have Free Willy energy? Can Cody's brain juice make us immortal? Were the big names in cast needed? Was there cultural appropriation in this movie? What is digital blackface? Were there moments when the frame rates looked weird? Is it weird that the format of Avatar is starting to seem like Avatar:The Last Airbender with tribes representing elements? Would we become a Na'vi? Was this a rehash of the first Avatar and to a bigger degree other James Cameron movies? Would Jake be a Na'vi supremacist? Should Stephen Lang become a hero (no)? How many characters have we cast Stephen Lang as? Is there anything on the planet that Pandora orbits around? Who would Anthony and Jake be in the movie? Do we like Sam Worthington? Would we go see a Marvel movie in 3D? What made this so much better than seeing something else in 3D? Is Captain Planet a Na'vi? Who are our favorite and least favorite characters? Do these movies need more lore and mythology? What did we think of the Barbie and Oppenheimer trailers? Why was Titanic important?

Welcome to our AVATAR: THE WAY OF WATER movie review with FULL SPOILERS!!! We are joined by Joe Stark (StarkCast) and Paul Hart (Cinedudes) as we rate and review the 2nd entry in James Cameron's science fiction fantasy. Did Avatar 2 blow us away with the story or was it just another attempt at wowing us with visual effects? We also have theories for future installments of the franchise. Set more than a decade after the events of the first film, “Avatar: The Way of Water” begins to tell the story of the Sully family (Jake, Neytiri, and their kids), the trouble that follows them, the lengths they go to keep each other safe, the battles they fight to stay alive, and the tragedies they endure. Directed by James Cameron and produced by Cameron and Jon Landau, the film stars Zoe Saldana, Sam Worthington, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, Cliff Curtis, Joel David Moore, CCH Pounder, Edie Falco, Jemaine Clement and Kate Winslet.

It's led Dave to drink. He didn't get drunk because he turned 50, it's because an actual critic called Avatar: TWOF a "Smurfahontas Stodgeathon", which is horesheet.

Big Jim is back!  I'm referring to James Cameron of course, the Oscar-winning director of Titanic who also gave us such modern classics as Aliens, The Terminator, Terminator 2, and most recently Avatar which came out in 2009.  Despite a lengthy production process and going massively overbudget, that film shocked every one to become a worldwide phenomenon - it starred Sam Worthington as Jake and Zoe Saldana as Netyri, two star-crossed lovers fighting to protect the Navi people on the moon of Pandora.And now both Jake and Netyri are back as well, this time with several kids who are becoming warriors in their own right.  Once again, they have to keep them safe while fighting the "Sky People" once again lead by Colonel Miles Quarych played by Stephen Lang as the human villain of the first film - well THIS time, he now has own Avatar and is on the hunt for Jake and family.  Coming out thirteen years after the first film, Cameron has worked exhaustively to craft an even more stirring epic with more impressive visual effects plus state-of-the-art 3D - let's see how his storytelling has developed alongside the technology. Host: Geoff Gershon Editors: Geoff and Ella GershonProducer: Marlene Gershonhttps://livingforthecinema.com/Facebook:https://www.facebook.com/Living-for-the-Cinema-Podcast-101167838847578Instagram:https://www.instagram.com/livingforthecinema/Letterboxd:https://letterboxd.com/Living4Cinema/

Topics: (PATREON EXCLUSIVE) 30-minute interview with Jerry Dugan about his podcast, the difficult experience of podcasting, and his favorite episodes (PATREON EXCLUSIVE) Jerry Dugan shares some of his affinity for James Cameron as a director, and the two discuss what it is they've come to know about his style.Giving just enough plot setup for all the 10-year questions we've had about what an Avatar sequel would be about and saving spoilers for the end of the episode.When Avatar: The Way of Water's initial trailer came out, Melvin was, admittedly, not excited in the least. Now that the movie is out, he can confidently say he loved it!One primary takeaway from Avatar: The Way of Water is how expertly directed the film is, clearly showcasing a confidence in its whimsical, simple-yet-complicated worldbuilding and storytelling.The directorial economy present in every scene of Avatar: The Way of Water far exceeds the inefficiency in virtually every scene from Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, which Melvin brings up because of some comparison's he's seeing due to each films visual setting. Ultimately, this makes the 192-minute runtime much more bearable.Discussing the state of CGI in the industry, things we dislike, and why Avatar: The Way of Water stands out from the rest.Opening spoilers so we can open predictions for future installments!Sequels are complicated because they need to converse with the previous film's themes, tone, and general experience. We wonder how subsequent features will innovate on all of these things, including its visual technology and connecting with the Pandora section in Disney World (which, if you didn't know, is canon to the film's story).Recommendations:Truce Podcast The Last Dragon (1985) (Movie) Support the showSupport on Patreon for Unique Perks!

For this week's main podcast review, I am joined by Amy Smith, Cody Dericks, Daniel Howat & Brendan Hodges. This week we're reviewing what can only be described as the biggest film of the year, "Avatar: The Way Of Water," starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldaña, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang & Kate Winslet. The film has been 13 years in the making since the original film, "Avatar," shattered box office records to become the highest-grossing film of all time. With a high frame rate, 3D, IMAX formats, and technological advances in CGI and motion capture performance, Cameron is pushing the limits of what's possible in filmmaking once again. What did we think of it? How does it hold up to the first film? How did we feel about the characters, story, and action set pieces? Plus, what does Cameron have planned for the other sequels in the epic sci-fi franchise? We discuss all of this and the film's Oscar prospects in our review below.

Once a familiar threat returns to finish what was previously started, Jake must work with Neytiri and the army of the Na'vi race to protect their home. James Cameron returns after 13 years to give us a sequel to 2009's Avatar. Avatar: The Way of Water is a visually stunning film as one would expect. What is unexpected (or maybe expected depending on who you talk to) is how bland and regressive the story and plot is. While no one would claim the first Avatar film was some marvel of story-telling. It's clear that Cameron "borrowed" from several different sources for that first film but it still was edited together in a coherent and enjoyable story. This new film is not only blatant in which films it rips dialogue and scenes from but its way too long and edited together in a way that just doesn't make sense. It's really ironic considering how much talk about how superhero and other big blockbuster films "aren't real cinema" that Cameron decided to rip so much from those films for this.  The other problem with Avatar: The Way of Water is that while Cameron made huge technological progress in how the film was shot and looks, it's almost as if his mindset with the story is still stuck in 2009. It's not just that he rips from other films but he does it in ways that waters down the impact of so many of those scenes. It's the equivalent of someone taking a soul food recipe for fried chicken, removing all seasonings and then baking it instead of frying.  We have a lot of spoiler-free thoughts on this film so listen as we talk about it.

The Rich Zeoli Show- Full Episode (12/08/2022): 3:00pm- On Tuesday, President Joe Biden announced that his administration successfully negotiated the release of WNBA star Brittney Griner from a Russian detention center. Griner had been accused of carrying illegal vape cartridges. The prisoner swamp involved the Biden Administration agreeing to release Viktor Bout, a Russian arms dealer nicknamed the Merchant of Death. According to reporting from Jim Geraghty of The National Review, “at one point” Bout was “the second-most-wanted man after Osama bin Laden.” 3:15pm- During her Thursday press conference, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre defended the Biden Administration's decision to trade a dangerous arms dealer for a professional athlete in the U.S.-Russia prisoner swap.  3:35pm- On the U.S.-Russia prisoner swap, National Review's Jim Geraghty writes that other nations may now conclude, “the U.S. government will release anyone under enough pressure.” Does this exchange encourage other adversarial nations to wrongfully imprison American citizens, hoping that it can result in valuable concessions? 3:45pm- While appearing on CNN, Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the U.S. National Security Council John Kirby emphasized that Paul Whelan—a Marine imprisoned in Russia—was “never a bargaining chip” for Viktor Bout. Why not? And, after releasing Bout, what bargaining chip does the Biden Administration have to encourage Whelan's release?   4:05pm- According to a report from Greg Wilson of The Daily Wire, “Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman helped broker the dramatic prisoner swap between the U.S. and Moscow that sprang WNBA star Brittney Griner from a Russian gulag, days after the Biden administration helped spike a lawsuit against the Saudi ruler.” 4:15pm- David Whelan, the brother of Marine Paul Whelan who has been wrongfully detained by Russia since 2018, told CNN that he and his family were incredibly happy to see Brittney Griner has been freed, but they obviously remain disappointed that Paul remains imprisoned.  4:40pm- Speaking with Martha MacCallum on Fox News, Coordinator for Strategic Communications at the U.S. National Security Council John Kirby dismissed the idea that the Griner-Bout prisoner exchange encourages foreign adversaries to abduct Americans.  4:50pm- The Biden Administration's foreign policy blunders didn't start with a lopsided prisoner exchange with Russia. The New York Times released a video essay documenting America's abandonment of allies during the August 2021 withdrawal from Afghanistan. Despite being over a year later, tens of thousands of Afghan-allies remain stranded—with many being actively hunted by the Taliban. 5:00pm- While everyone is happy to see Brittney Griner finally released from an unjust Russian detainment, should the Biden Administration have been able to extract more concessions in exchange for Viktor Bout—an individual who, at one point, was considered the second-most wanted man in the world. Listeners react to the prisoner exchange.    5:15pm- During an interview with Variety, Jennifer Lawrence claimed that Hunger Games was the first time Hollywood featured a female actor in an action film. But what about Sigourney Weaver in Aliens, Linda Hamilton in Terminator, Angelina Jolie in Tomb Raider…the list goes on and on... 5:30 pm- On CNBC, Harvard University professor Jason Furman—who served as an Economic Advisor in the Obama Administration—warned that a mild recession is likely to occur soon, though it won't necessarily resolve inflation. 5:50pm- The Mystery Movie Clip: Henry plays the whole movie… 6:05pm- During her Thursday press conference, White House Press Secretary referred to Brittney Griner as an “important role model” and defended the Biden Administration's decision to trade a dangerous arms dealer for a professional athlete in the U.S.-Russia prisoner swap. Will teacher Mark Fogel and Marine Paul Whelan ever be released from their unjust Russian imprisonment?  6:30pm- According to a report from The Daily Wire, a professor at Sacramento City College is under an internal investigation for being critical of “gender affirmation” surgeries being performed on children.  6:45pm- Disney released the trailer for the new Indiana Jones film: Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. It doesn't look great…but Rich will see it anyway! 6:50pm- Does Discovery's “Shark Week” lack diversity? According to Daniel Wu of The Washington Post, not only does the television event lack diversity, it also emphasizes “negative messages about sharks.”
