Sometimes I'm wrong. Rarely do I feel the need to trashcan a book or movie. With The Abyss, immediately after I finished watching the director's cut, I tossed it. The language was horrid! Bring on the mystery, blood and guts, and even some mild suspense, but boy 'o boy, if you can't find better words than swear words, you need to think harder!!! And, by the way, this was a James Cameron movie, both written and directed by him. I haven't seen Avatar. Hope he's learned to keep the language clean. I don't remember this problem with Titanic. Guess I'll need to re-watch that one, too. (Now it's research!).
Stepping off my tree-stump now... :-)
