Avatar (with Bryan Fontez)

Film ‐ August 14, 2017

With special guest Bryan Fontez, Joe and Alan journey back to the planet Pandora to discuss the epic sci-fi mega-blockbuster of 2009, Avatar. As the highest grossing film of all time, everyone saw it, yet almost no one seems to like it. Do James Cameron’s grandiose visuals still capture the imagination, or do the characters and story feel flatter than a non-3D screening? As our replacement, we’ll discuss another spaced-out adventure which also features statuesque blue aliens.

What’s this week’s suggested film? Here’s a hint!

“Multi pass!”
