So, at the beginning of Avatar, we learn that Jake’s brother has been shot. I have previously contended that his death was part of a giant conspiracy, but this week I have come to a different conclusion. After seeing the following video, I can now never imagine Tommy’s death going down any other way:

Yes, forever I will see Jake’s twin as that hapless bystander. Imagining that Bikie Wars is the official prequel to Avatar improves Cameron’s film tenfold. Yes. This is truly an improvement.


Aw, man, could I just watch this on a loop for three hours instead?

While Bikie Wars entertained me for the first several minutes of Avatar, I spent the rest of the film trying to jump back into knitting. Because, yeah, I’m wicked sick of Avatar. Unfortunately, it didn’t go well. What can you do?
