… “Navi” is Hebrew for “A Prophet.” Presumably, you all did, and I’m just behind the curve. What can it all mean?

    1)That he knew “A Prophet” would turn out to be a better film by a mile and he wanted to create a connection between the two movies in order to make Avatar seem a little better than it is?

    2) That using Hebrew in your movie doesn’t make you a serious man?

    offtopic – The Lovely Bones review: There is a line in My Fair Lady. “She’s so deliciously low”.
    Well, it was so despicably low. Bad general idea and bad specific choices. Saoirse was good but nothink could save that film. When did Jackson lose every bit of his understanding of the medium? It was the epitome of arrogance.

    OFF TOPIC, but I had no idea… that Tom McCarty is an Oscar nominee this year. YES!
    It might have been discussed but I just found out looking at the nominees for Original Screenplay. For Up.
    The man behind The Station Agent and The Visitor is now officially an Oscar Nominee.
    Sorry for posting it here, but it just made my day. I’m so happy for him.

    “Its also “A Prophet” in Arabic.”

    No, that would be “Nabi”.

    That James Cameron thought he would get Jews to vote for him simply by inserting a Hebrew word. I wouldn’t put it past him.

    Actually, in Hebrew, it’s just “prophet.” No “a.”
