      Besides, I'm sure the plot/storylines will get better with each movie. It not like Harry Potter where each movie has an individual plot. The series is like an onion, and you peal back a layer with each movie, at least that's what I'm choosing to believe, for now.

      @brandovlogs You're seriously comparing this trash to *any* Kurosawa movie? A movie about how the humans (booo! hisss!) have been defeated by primitives with spears (hoorah!) so they...resurrect the moron who screwed up and ask him to lead a second attack? And where humans have to use incredibly expensive avatars to survive on the planet/moon but one kid can manage it for years with a simple face mask?
      There's bad plotting and then there's completely breaking your own internal consistency and logic.
      If all you want is pretty pictures, go to an art gallery. Or, you know, the mountains.

      @ZzzZzz if you want it to look real, animating it would be WAY too complicated.
      Think about how a wave bumps into the side of it's container and bounces back, creating new shapes and interacting with other waves.
      Or how any object moving in the water will generate new waves and interact with old ones. Water will stick to the object too.
      You can art direct the simulation, but it's not quite the same concept as traditional animation.
      Ocean waves are most often simulated with Fast Fourier Transform algorithm (FFT)

      Weta in this regard is a titan. They can do the stuff Disney/Pixar does, where basically they have the money and time to throw at problems in a way no other post production studio in the world can.
      This is why they are revolutionary. The film studios pay them to be so. They dont for the majority.

    While the water scenes in Avatar 2 are undoubtedly gorgeous and incredible, I do want to say how amazed I was when I found out the water scene in Avatar 1 WASN’T done in water. Obviously if you compare them side to side you’ll notice differences, but I’ve seen the first movie a few times now and I honestly would’ve never noticed. Incredible acting to pull that off, too.

    James Cameron, as well respected as he is, will be regarded even more highly a century from now I think. Once the dust settles, once the generation of salty/jealous haters dies out, his legacy will march on. What he does, the effort and dedication he shows to creating these experiences, is unrivalled.

      @LeHorn James Criticising someone JUST for putting lots of effort into a project is, I’d say, most certainly a (weird) form of hating. Surely reserving judgement until the film is released and viewed is the way to go. Otherwise it’s blind criticism of someone’s strong work ethic. Very bizarre.

    This guy Cameron just keeps breaking the mold of what cinema making is. He keeps coming out with new and exciting ways to film and always makes them look so real you feel like you're there in that world. Remember when thousands of people had that Avatar Depression after watching the first film? They literally hated when the movie ended and they had to go back to the world we live in and made them depressed. That is how movie making should be.

    After seeing it in 3D in theater I was allready pretty sure they changed frame rates between scences because the action scenes had kind of a "cut scene" vibe to me that is often associated with 48-60 fps. I thought I was imagining things but I am happy I got it right :) Thanks for the great breakdown!
    Edit: I also find it facinating what they did to the facial skin (I think its suburface scattering) interaction with light underwater. They perfectly nailed how faces look smoother underwater (e.g. 10:50 in the video). Does this effect result from the refractive index of skin and water beeing fairly close to each other (in compairson to skin and air?). Never really thought about that until now?

    Saw it last night and loved it. My only gripe was the switch between frame rates. This was something very obvious to me as to my perspective the frame rate dropped so many times throughout the film it felt like claymation. The person I saw it with, who is a non gamer and unaware of framerates and picture quality differences, said it was buttery smooth for them the whole time, but I definetly definetly noticed it switching back and forth.

      If you watch a youtube video with 1080p 60fps for a minute or so, to get your eyes used to it, and then switch to the 720p option (which will be 30fps) you can probably tell the difference too. For me it's like night and day.

      Same here, I thought way more people would notice. The framerate switching kept throwing me out of the experience because I noticed it every single time it switched, even when I was actively trying to ignore it. And damn did it switch often. I *really* hope movies don't continue doing this and just settle for one rate for the whole movie. I had no problems with the Hobbit looking so smooth because when it doesn't switch, I just get used to it really quickly.

    this is genuinely one of the most immersive movies i've ever seen, so much so to the point where up until now the thought of how it was filmed never came up on my mind because i just thought that they really filmed it like how it is in the movie.

    His passion for a movie is beyond words. Let's hope that the rest will learn finally and very quickly from it. This is what we want to see. Not woke agendas in mediocre movies, but a movie made for fans a lovers of a good old movie worth not one but 2 cinema visits and buying a blu-ray as soon as it comes out 😉

    While the story/screenplay probably won't garner any awards Way of Water's visuals melted my brain. Easily the most stunning film I've ever seen after the first Avatar, which I've watched at least once a year over the past 13 years. It would be an absolute travesty if this film doesn't win an Oscar for best FX.
    Outstanding breakdown and I can't wait to watch for a 3rd time when it's eventually available on home video.

    The movie was absolutely amazing. When I go to see a sequel, I don't expect to be mindblown as I was when I saw the original, because I figure I know what to expect. The fact that I was so enthralled, blown away and transported to this world all over again is a testament to Cameron's wizardry. All the emotions.

    OH SO THE FRAMES WERE CHANGING! While I was in the theatre I felt like some scenes (The faster ones) had a faster FPS while some others were shot on 24FPS, I asked my sister and she said she didn't notice it. Wild
    Also the rest of this work was incredible, I couldn't find any flaws on the VFX!

    I was a little worried this film would disappoint but it was awesome. Honestly the best move experience I've ever had. The worst feeling is spending money on something and feeling like you either overpaid or wasted your money. I promise, if you go see this movie in theaters in 3D, you will not regret it.

    The movie was exactly what i was hoping for. I knew that its gonna be hard to top the first, you cant invent the wheel twice and we knew its gonna be humans vs pandorans again so all i hoped for was a beautiful immersive experience and some nice action scenes thats just genuinly nice to watch and they delivered. The 3rd one has a chance to be even greater because they got a good plot hook with the military guy and his son, theres space for character development and surprises. I love it.

    Amazing. They re-engineered water-simulations. Just WOW. Like think about how complicated it is to create anything even remotely realistic in a 3d program. And then multiply that by 10. This is truly ground-breaking and incredible work. Would love to see more about the actual water-simulation and how they accomplish it.

    I realy loved the movie and mostly all in it. The only thing that was buggling me was the switching from 24 to 48 fps (motion grading). It almost drove me crazy, it looks cheaper with 48 fps... I dont get it that people dont recognice the switching. Its like someone is punching you in your face and you cant feel that XD

    • blublubblub

      That's interesting, reminds me of the (small-ish) subset people who have issues with 3D and headaches or similar. Perhaps a small subset of people find motion grading too obvious and obnoxious even if most adapt to it. 3D tech engineers work to reduce the bad side-effects, I assume motion grading will be improved too. I'd never heard of it being used until now, but it seems brilliant, even if 48fps seems technically "better," clearly it looks wierd to viewers, if you can control motion in a live action movie in the same way animators can choose to use different frame rates even for different layers in the same scene, that opens up a whole world of possibilities.
      In the end though, as you exemplify, the technical aspects must serve the perceptive aspects. It's like JPEG, where a model of human visual perception is used in the standard to select which information is worth keeping about an image and which isn't. Otherwise what's the point. So I imagine further developments in the motion grading techniques are sure to come, to better serve the viewers' perception, specially those like you who find it "intrusive."

    One thing that I find interesting is that JC had all the actors and even cameramen and staff hold their breath underwater. I think this was in part to improve the feeling for the underwater scenes in the movie, since a lot of this could have been shot with a two hose rebreather or surface based scuba equipment. Essentially this means you dont blow bubbles into the water when using those, so no distortion of the images and hoses and small rebreather machines could be edited out just as the motion caputre suits would be - and for the staff that would have been even less relevant

    So true in all your said! Especially the problem solving of James Cameron that advances not only his films but others! I saw it once in movie theatres and the story seemed a little off but the technology behind it was amazing!

    when the movie started in 3d imax i kinda waited for that moment of jarring 3d and having to get used to it. The 3d they did for way of water is some of the most natural looking i've ever seen. They didnt really do any gimmicky object flying through the screen but instead just added depth to the world. really good stuff technologically

    I saw this in Dolby 3D and it completely changed the way I look at 3D cinema now. There was an audible gasp in the audience on release day at the sheer quality of the 3D and the graphics themselves. I noticed the change in framerate, which honestly felt a bit strange at first but it was placed well and it was used in a way which didn't feel overly intrusive

    I did have more enjoyment of Puss in Boots 2 than The Way of Water. I love animation and that animated movie uses the artstyle that I love a lot more than realism. But I do have to give Avatar credit, rewatching the scenes in this video made me remember how beautiful it was, despite the pain and suffering shown. Mom and I will definitely be watching the sequels.

    Besides the issue with bubbles, I think the overriding problem is that having a mouthpiece will get in the way of face acting.
    I think that crew could use rebreather or dual-hose systems, though. At the very least, the safety specialists that watch out for problems and rescue the actors who black out, ought to have long-duration rebreathers.

      my first thought also was, why didn't the crew use rebreathers? As for the actors rebreathers would be bad, because you move differently if you have to conserve oxygen. also they give you different aerodynamics and different mass and center of gravity.
