James Cameron (Avatar) Vs. Mark Canton (Piranha). That's an easy one...

I could complain that James Cameron is criticizing a movie that he apparently did not see. But I have seen both films being discussed. Piranha was a terrible, an unforgivably hypocritical and misogynistic piece of boring garbage that was made that much worse by the mediocre 3D conversion that turned this trashy matinee picture into a $15-a-ticket eyesore. Avatar was one of the best films of last year and is by-far the highest-grossing film of all time at least partially due to its pure storytelling quality. I don't agree with James Cameron in principal that only certain-level films should be in 3D, but I'll give the win to the man who knows how to actually make 3D work in live-action. Until someone, anyone, can make a live-action picture that looks as good in 3D as Avatar did, Cameron gets to whine all he wants about others cheapening 3D technology.

Team Avatar.

I'm laughing at these morons who wasted $15 to see the 3D Piranha garbage movie. YOU HAVE BEEN RIPPED OFF!!!!

Count me as one of those morons, although to be fair the 2D option was at a much father theater and I didn't want to inconvenience my parents who were watching our daughter.

I'm not necessarily on a "team" but i must say its easy for Cameron to criticize from his unlimited-budget perch.

Avatar may technically be a better film, and I do mean technically, as in, with regards to technology, but James Cameron can say nothing to what people would prefer to see. Piranha was fun, funny, completely gory and over the top and knew it, and I loved it. I have never wanted to see Avatar less. Pocahontas in space? Great. People went to see Avatar because they wanted to experience new 3D technology; people are going to see Piranha because they want to have a good time. Which they will.
