So James Cameron’s 3-D Fern Gully remake hasn’t just revolutionized film technology — as depicted by the sketch comedy troupe Free Love Forum, it’s also inspiring a whole new generation of bootleggers.

The irony, of course, is that a quick Google search confirms that torrents for Avatar bootlegs are out in full force — and not just versions captured by sneaky theatergoers with handheld cameras, but what appear to be high-quality DVD rips. Even so, Avatar has been doing just fine at the box office — because as one bootlegger from the short puts it, you do want to watch it “on a reasonably-sized screen.”

  1. Nice… The 10-foot tall stick figure alien drawing with boobies had me rolling on the floor. :)

    Yeah, bootlegging Avatar is a waste. BIG screen, BIG sound, in 3D…that’s the way to see it. Awesome!!

    Cheers!

  2. I’m sure this film is a spectacle for people who don’t get off the couch very often. However if your older than 10years old you may care about the script,storyline or plot which i assure you is crapola.

  4. Actually, I had a great time watching Avatar. Is the storyline highly derivative? Yes, but so was Star Wars. That’s ok with me. It was a helluva ride, which was probably the point.

    As a side note (and extreme geek observation), even though Frank Herbert’s novel Dune has been made into a big-budget film (with another in development) as well as a mini-series, it took James Cameron creating Avatar after all these years to finally get the “thopters” from Dune right. :)

    Cheers!
