And the douchebag award goes to...
I got this from Bloody Disgusting.com
Vanity Fair caught up with James Cameron to talk to him about Avatar and they asked him about the new Pirahna 3D. Here's what the douchebag had to say...
Vanity Fair: Was there any sense of nostalgia when the Piranha movie came out last weekend?
"Zero. You’ve got to remember: I worked on Piranha 2 for a few days and got fired off of it; I don’t put it on my official filmography," he explained. "So there’s no sort of fond connection for me whatsoever. In fact, I would go even farther and say that... I tend almost never to throw other films under the bus, but that is exactly an example of what we should not be doing in 3-D. Because it just cheapens the medium and reminds you of the bad 3-D horror films from the 70s and 80s, like Friday the 13th 3-D. When movies got to the bottom of the barrel of their creativity and at the last gasp of their financial lifespan, they did a 3-D version to get the last few drops of blood out of the turnip. And that’s not what’s happening now with 3-D. It is a renaissance—right now the biggest and the best films are being made in 3-D. Martin Scorsese is making a film in 3-D. Disney’s biggest film of the year—Tron: Legacy—is coming out in 3-D. So it’s a whole new ballgame."
And my response:
FUCK YOU JAMES CAMERON. It cheapens the medium? Horror INVENTED 3D. You don't see too many fucking romantic comedies that are big on 3D do you. DO YOU? You just took something that was a gag in the 70s and 80s and exploited the piss out of it for your movie. Avatar didn't need to be in 3D but boy did you cash in on that shit. I saw it in 2D and enjoyed it just fine. 3D was just a money grab buddy.
What about My Bloody Valentine 3D that came out last year? Did that cheapen the genre? FUCK NO. That movie catapulted all this 3D shit we have now. When they make horror movies, especially now, FOR the 3D then its epic. Now when "Disney" and "James Cameron" make a movie...then at the last minute put it in 3D to make money THAT cheapens the medium. Because of fucks like you EVERY GOD DAMN MOVIE is in 3D right now. It's so fucking insane that nobody wants to see them anymore. The prices are outrageous, our heads are ready to explode, and its just not fun anymore. Because of shitheads like you. Too much of a good thing is a bad thing Mr. Cameron.
3D should be a once in a while kind of thing. 3D films should be made specifically for the theatre. Not as a last ditch effort to make money. I'm sorry Mr. Cameron, I strongly disagree with your perspective on Pirahna 3D. Movies like that make 3D live stronger. Besides, you worked on Pirahna 2: the Spawning. That's a bigger joke on LIFE than Pirahna 3D is on the medium.
