James Cameron: I Believe in Eco-Terrorism

Big Hollywood linked to What Would Toto Watch who caught an interview Cameron did with an Entertainment Weekly reporter:

Entertainment Weekly asked Cameron to respond to some of the criticisms aimed at him regarding "Avatar." Check out how he responded to this one:
EW: "'Avatar' is the perfect eco-terrorism recruiting tool."

JC: "Good, good. I like that one. I consider that a positive review. I believe in eco-terrorism."

Was he joking or was he serious? It's too hard to tell because the transcript does not indicate laughter. In all honesty, it doesn't matter to me because I will not see his movies and put more money in that weirdo's pocket.

Golly, I'm gonna have to get back to ya on that one.

This is typical of wealthy, socialist, liberals. Capitalism is fine when it serves to make them wealthy but, once they are nestled into their 4th home in Idaho or Colorado they become the guardians of the earth's open lands. I don't remember these liberal movie makers putting out any movie that is free to the masses to see.

Wow.

Another Hollywood ignoramus believes that his right to order the world as he sees fit trumps my right to exist.

Color me unsurprised.

WildWillie:

Kim, it is a wonderful film with only the minimalist ecology problem. The "corporation" did not want to ruin the planet or stay there much longer but to have the precious ore that was under the natives home town. That simple. This isn't Cameren's view, the eco jerks are reading too much into it. I did take offense of the portrayal of marines as heartless and mean. The marines are brave and first on the line of battle, but they have a big heart because they do that for their country. So, go see the movie. It is very enjoyable. ww

Yeah, eco-terrorism is all new-wave and trendy. Wait until one of them torches his multi-million Malibu, Telluride, Vail, etc whatever home and vandalizes his expensive whatever set of wheels. Then that will be "different".

I applaud the shooting of eco terrorists, preferably in the head. That is good, I like that, I believe in shooting eco terrorists in the head.

So many Lifestyle and Entertainment tuchas posts at Wizbang lately!

"James Cameron: I Believe in Eco-Terrorism"

The gist is enigmatical.
Well, no. Finnegan's Wake is enigmatical; Cameron's sentence is just bad.

We must assume that Cameron believes there's such a Thing as eco-terrorism---the truth of which is beyond contention. And not that he, Cameron, is Pro eco-terrorism.

Which brings up the question, What is Kim outraged over?
Is she taking up the Greenpeace banner and the cause of literalism against Cameron and his poor sentence construction? That Cameron believes in the cause of eco-terrorism?

Or, does she take the moderate (majoritarian) interpretation, that Cameron recognizes the dangers of eco-terrorism and is (culturally?) opposed to it?

I'll bet the second option gets Kim's goat, judging from the goober galleria in comments.

Eco-terrorism, under various case words, has been a political and military contingency since the ancient Chinese wars. To deny sustenance to the enemy forces or social class. The destruction of the American Bison is the classic American example.

"In all honesty, it doesn't matter to me because I will not see his movies and put more money in that weirdo's pocket."-kim

Spoken like an outraged junk movie fanatic.
Such blanket resolutions defy the hard fact that great movies can come from unlikely sources. And great film makers can have a slew of stinkers. I'm thinking of Scorcese, post-Casino: The Departed was especially disappointing. Won't someone put Jack Nicholson to sleep? And that Tarantino-esque ending. You know: where everybody has each other "covered"!!!1!

epador:

bD: so you won't complain when the eco-terrorists burn down your home cause it isn't green enough or is built in the "wrong" place, burn your car and truck (or put sugar in the gas tank) cause they aren't carbon neutral, and cut off your power and ISP because it isn't run on green power?

Maybe you should publish your address for them to make it easier?

Well, this thread is now officially too gay for me.

Kim.... "it doesn't matter to me because I will not see his movies and put more money in that weirdo's pocket."

Beat you by about years, with the exception of flics for the kids I refuse to pay alms to any of the hollyweirds and even then I filter the kiddie flics that or more propaganda than entertainment.

bryanD's response to Kim's quote: "Spoken like an outraged junk movie fanatic.

No, acutally that's spoken like someone who's taken a stand against the trash masquerading as entertainment.

Yes great movies come from unlikely sources, but guess what, they aren't worth my time to sort thru the detritus.

Fuck'em all.
