Joe Rogan then commented that “I think it might be one of those things where you are supposed to hate it, there are some things you are supposed to hate, you know”. He also commented about the first movie, “I loved the first story, I mean it was definitely a derivative story”.

He was also surprised by the fact that Kate Winslet held her breath for over 7 minutes underwater for the shoot. He commented, “They did film a lot of it underwater because they said Kate Winslet held her breath for 7 minutes, she’s really good at holding her breath. I think it’s a mental thing”. 

Avatar: The Way of Water praised for its mesmerizing CGI

Avatar: The Way of Water is a stunning movie made with today’s advanced equipment, both hardware, and software which allowed them to shoot prolonged scenes underwater and edit them with heavy CGI effects. Along with the hard determination of the actors during the harsh training for underwater shoots, the movie became yet another blockbuster as it crossed the 1 billion dollar mark on the 15th day of its release, which is technically not seen in many movies.
