Vatican calls “Avatar” bland


While others have gone sick wishing the world of Avatar were more than fiction, those at the Vatican give the movie one shrug up and down, apparently finding the movie “bland,” according to an AP article. Critics at the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, seemed pointedly unimpressed by the movie, summarizing their sentiments in the headline, “Not much behind the images.” Another article noted “so much stupefying, enchanting technology, but few genuine emotions” and “everything is reduced to an overly simple anti-imperialistic and anti-militaristic parable.” The Church asks an entertaining question: How much do you actually like the movie beyond the visual spectacle?

Total movie coverage.

    Seriously, since when do people care what Vatican has to say about a movie… cheap stunt nevertheless…
