The worst Avatar review ever: 'Negative 1,000 stars'

Ben Bartley, a copy editor for the college newspaper the Auburn Plainsman, has written what may be the most negative review ever of James Cameron's sci-fi epic Avatar. He gives the film "negative 1,000 stars."

Here's a sample from his review, headlined "Movie Review: You're no Robert Heinlein, James Cameron":

"Avatar" is bad, bad, bad. 100 times 100 bad.

The plot is trite and clich├ęd. The characters are flat and unoriginal.

And the dialog, especially from that talentless buffoon playing the Jake Sully character, is laughable -- as in I, and those around me (who were, admittedly, my friends) were laughing at each and every "serious" moment. ...

Also, while I'm thinking about it, those stupid 3-D glasses be damned.

Gee, we kinda liked it.

Did we mention he's a copy editor, not a film student?

Avatar's now playing.
