12 years and hundreds of millions of dollars later, James Cameron returns to reclaim his status as the world’s biggest deal. Avatar, his new sci-fi epic, hit theatres this weekend, and it’s an event so huge that the whole SoS crew – Ricky, Al, Mariko, and Simon – are here to impart their judgment. The gang will also be doing their year-end wrap-ups, including top tens, so alert the Academy.

    Your post seemed quite spot on but to become honest I didn’t really like Avatar very much. I mean everyone else I’ve met just adores it but me personally, who occurs to be a techie type of fan, just couldn’t get into it.

  2. […] 3D spectacle Avatar to become the second-highest grossing film in worldwide box-office history. And we didn’t really like it all that much. Clearly, we’re in the minority. But regardless of our reticence to embrace a Pocahontas video […]

    Can you write the finaltop 10 list of everyone in the eposodes ??

    thanks!!

    Great list guys and two things, when are you going to review Gaspar Noe’s Enter the Void (I was surprised no one was talking about) and when the hell is Dogtooth coming to America.

    Great show guys. You’re right about Up. Great beginning. I dont totally agree with your Avatar review but thanks for balancing it a bit because the hype and the reviews are far too glowing. I’m just waiting for the expected backlash for the DVD release from all the critics who loved it when it first came out.

    Really looking forward to hearing your opinions on this. I seen it last night and it thought it was amazing. The 3D is definitely the only way to see it. Best visuals in a movie so far i think i have ever seen.

    If your doing a top ten run down I hope yous are going to include Ricks Meltdown over Precious, funniest SOS moment of the year!!

    Keep up the great work and happy holidays and happy new year!!

      Yes, I’d like to echo Ian’s comments. Loved the Precious episode. You really convinced me not to see it

        Did not have time to get the best moments of the show. Maybe I will save that for the 200th episode!

    Saw the midnight screening last night in glorious 3-D. It’s outstanding.

      Really than do you want to write a review because I was in too much pain to enjoy it.

  8. Ricky says

    It should be up by Tuesday morning the latest!
