Avatarand the Gluttony of Technology

Ari Kelman focuses on offering hysterical praise to the best-payingbox office movie, Avatar, with a special inclination to thetechnological maneuvers the producers of the movie put in place. Itis a very familiar venue to critic the technological manipulations ofthe video to deliver the storyline and the behavior of thecharacters. Ari goes forth to state his discomfort with the subtleuse of technology in the film. His argument reflects that as long asthe producers of the movie rely on technology to deliver the variouscomponents of their film, as in the case of Avatar, then there is noneed for the audiences to act marveled by the technology. Ifcomputers can do all things in the development of films with aninclusion to channel human feelings and communications withinindividuals, we can as well manipulate anything with the samecomputers to cover limitless creativity. Hence, no need to actsurprised or even appreciative that a single film shows love to allthe technophiles (Kelman).

I feel that Ari acts a little hasty to judge the technological inputof the movie. In any case, the film paves the way for other filmproducers to innovatory manipulate the technological input in theirfilms to surpass the levels attained by Avatar and othertechnology-ridden films like Star Wars. The commendation to producesolely a film via technology and animations opens the field oftechnological competition by the various film producers to impressthe film lovers as hugely as possible. Nonetheless, the failures inthe Avatar film from the sole dependency on technological inputshould be a learning lesson for the future production of films thatbase their plot, characters, and story on technology and computeranimations.
