    #32 I thought Neytiri was just a computer 3d animation.
    #33 I aways had fear of clowns or any fantasy costume. And I didn't knew this movie until last year.
    But I like some cosplay girls =3

    Ralph Fiennes does look like a maniac. And the rest are amazing! Just doesn't make sense to take good-looking actors and to do all possible and impossible to make them look scary and disgusting. Oh, and thank for such a great discovery! I had no idea that "V" was actually Agent Smith. :))))))))))))) Great post!
