The Avatar sequels

There will be four sequels to James Cameron's Avatar.

It's entirely futile to object to sequel-itis: that boat sailed with The Godfather. Still, I do object. I've seldom if ever seen such a grand and expensive spectacle without real heart as Avatar. Must we endure four follow-ups?

I don't have to watch them, of course, and absent unexpectedly fantastic reviews I won't. But I think of all the money Cameron's going to tie up producing these things and I wonder, how many better original movies would that buy?
