Avatar confuses men, feels Cameron

india Updated: Feb 20, 2010 17:20 IST

avatarOscar-winning filmmaker JamesCameron feels men are confused by his ground-breaking film Avatar because it is a romantic action movie.

The 55-year-old director, who helmed the 3-D sci-fi epic starring Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana, believes a lot of film fans find it complex because it contains romance and action, Contactmusic reported.

"With Titanic it was kind of like I took the hard part away, and I left the soft, gooey centre and a lot of people loved it. But it was also easy to attack, especially after the fact. There was this revisionist sense that if you were a guy, you didn't like Titanic," he said.

Avatar confuses people because it's got all this cool eye candy and all this cool action, and if they're starting to feel something in the middle of that, it's kind of Ok," Cameron added.

The filmmaker also blasted criticism for his movies and said, "My favourite one was, 'They're too dumb to even know what they're saying'."

"Any messages... you might interpret being in the film is there by mistake. Sure. It's lefty swill. And dumb lefty swill," Cameron added.
