On the latest episode of the pod, we're returning to the world of Pandora with James Cameron's highly anticipated sequel, Avatar: The Way of Water. It's been thirteen years since Cameron dominated the box office with the original film, and he's back with a 192-minute science fiction opus that promises to blow the original's groundbreaking effects out of the water. Does Cameron pull it off? We break down our feelings about this cinematic event, from the experience of seeing it in IMAX 3D, to Cameron's use of HFR to fully transport his audience to the oceans of Pandora. Elsewhere, we debate the merits of the film's story, and discuss whether it improves on our grievances with the first film, or doubles down on them. It's safe to say that when it comes to the film's stunning visual effects, there's no argument that this level of spectacle only comes around whenever Cameron decides it's time to bless us with a new movie. Was it worth the thirteen year wait? Are we excited for three more sequels? Tune in to Breaking Canon Podcast to find out!
