(Newser) – James Cameron’s follow-up to the hugely successful Titanic has been eagerly anticipated for more than 10 years—and when Avatar finally arrives, it will be...completely awful. Richard Rushfield explains why for Gawker:

  1. Directors’ dream projects typically fall flat: See: Spielberg’s 1941, Lucas’s The Phantom Menace.
  2. Speaking of The Phantom Menace, note the “distressingly Jar Jar Binks-like aliens” featured in Avatar.

  1. Trailers showcase a few regrettable similarities to the more cringeworthy aspects of Titanic, including “two-fisted ham-handed over-acting” and “a laughable two-dimensional good vs. evil plotline to tie together all the explosions.”
  2. Embarrassing dialogue sample: “Every living thing wants to kill you and eat your eyes for Jujubees.”
  3. Embarrassing character name samples: Colonel Miles Quaritch, Trudy Chacon, Selfridge, Neytiri, Jake Sully.
  4. The blue characters with the cat noses look plain silly.
