Default 90s internet discussions about James Cameron's Avatar

If you search through the Usenet archive you can find all kinds of strange conversations about Avatar from the time when the whole project was shrouded in myth.

Those were interesting to read through, but this caught my eye...

I quite agree that Cameron should never
have been given that kind of money and I'm sure the studio's would never
be stupid enough to give him $300 million for his Avatar film.
Fox was stupid enough, and look how that worked out for them

What would be interesting to do if it wasn't impossible, would be to take an audience from 10 years ago and show them the film just to see how they would react to it.

It's funny everyone keeps saying Avatar is one of the most secretive projects at the time, but then one person comes out of the blue and tells the whole story as if he's already seen it.

Have enough people make guesses and someone will come close to being right
That said, the plants part... I think he got it confused with Cave Story

A while ago, by coincidence I came across an article from a newspaper in the 1990s before that mentioned it, will have to see if I can find it again.

very interesting in hindsight. Always be wary of someone saying that "that will never happen" or "they would be stupid to do something like that" because just the opposite occurs, especially when it comes to new technology or an idea for a film.
