So what?

So what if I liked Avatar?
So what if I might be cutting off my supply of fresh lemons north of the river?
I liked it:

Look how beautiful he is. Who cares if he's standing next to a blue lady with funny ears.

I liked this too:

Floating sky-mountains, dontcha know?
There were flying dragon thingies, and big, big humungous trees of Life, and flowers and creatures and I thought it was like a dream.
It didn't go for too long. It was good. The only thing I don't like about it is that it was created by a complete twat. But hey. Who really cares?
And this. I liked this too:

Avatar. Going back to see it again. That makes it twice. That makes it double the bad sunglasses in the glove box of the car. That makes it double the fancying of Mr Worthington.
Taking the kids, but only because they want to see it and I don't mind seeing it again.
So what if it is a slightly trite tale of let's look after our planet otherwise we are in big trouble. So what if it's a baddies (miners/businessmen) versus goodies (indigenous peoples/big-hearted, renegade soldiers). SO WHAT?
I liked it and that is all.

Ah Melba, I was only teasing.

Of course you can have more lemons - they'll only rot on the tree anyway.

How's the limoncello going, anyway?

That's right. So what? Do what you like to do. I'd love to see Avatar and am kicking myself that I didn't see it in 3D while I was in Melbourne. Now I'll probably never get to see it on the big screen. I'm jealous that you are seeing it twice. Everyone I know who has seen it has loved it and thought it was great.

Well, my namesake. They're re-making 'Clash of the Titans'.
