    If Poland was half the writer Scott and Dargis are, I might have more time for his smug lecturing on critical responsibility.

    My thoughts exactly, Guy. Then again, anyone who writes, “It [Avatar] is as complex as anything Charlie Kaufman has ever written,” isn’t worth reading or thinking about.

    *faints in horror*

    Poland strikes me as bit of a fanboy/populist types.

    But then again his choice of people to interview is superb, he has interviewed a truly wide range of very talented and very interesting people.

    In it’s way, Avatar IS quite complex. Its too bad that many of its parts came wholesale.
