I thought about writing an Avatar review for the blog, but I never did because a) there's not much more to say about a movie so obvious, derivative, and superficially allegorical that real, PAID bloggers haven't already said, and b) I was kind of drunk when I saw it, so I may have missed some plot points.

Luckily for all of us, there's a comprehensive, on-point, and hilarious video review by this comedian/filmmaker named Mike Stoklasa.  He narrates the video as a character the Daily Beast called "an elderly schizophrenic who talks like a cross between Dan Aykroyd in The Blues Brothers and The Silence of the Lambs' Buffalo Bill."  I think he sounds like Frito from Idiocracy.

The two-part, 18 minute Youtube video seems a little long, but it's totally worth it, I promise. (His 70 minute Phantom Menace review was a viral hit). So check it out: 


(Thanks to Twombly for the find. And for seeing Avatar with me.)
