When I first heard for Avatar, I say "This will be the worst movie ever"! So after a week I decided to go with my friends to see it. When it finished I was so impressive that I didn't have anything to say. I'm a fan of James Cameron from his work with Titanic. Cameron wantede to make Avatar before some years but there wasn't the effects that he want to make his film.

Avatar review

Sometimes people overanalyze or critic negatively because of one of the quotes from the films characters Mo’at: “It is hard to fill a cup which is already full.” Viewing this again with another version never persuaded any perceptions of the movie. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paraplegic ex-marine meets Dr. Grace Augustine (Sigourney Weaver). He also talks to Colonel Miles Quaritch (Stephen Lang), head of RDA's private security force and gives orders for him to follow. This reviewer is viewing the special edition re-release from the 3 disc DVD, which boasts of additional detailed scenes. The innovative Capturing Avatar, and humane A Message from Pandora (where Cameron and his wife meet a real tribe where people will suffer from a creation of a dam), deleted/additional scenes were v...

Fern Gully or Avatar??

This is a cheap rip off of classic movies. The most obvious is Fern Gully. If you have seen Fern Gully you should see all of the connections, because there are a lot of them. The scene where the huge machine is cutting through the forest, where the person from the "bad guys" falls in love with the native, the hero standing up to those he once called friends, the hero rallying the natives to fight... from what i have given examples of so far 1. clearly shows the basic plot of Avatar, and 2. i was laying out the plot to Fern Gully.

The 3D version of this film is not worth the money, it doesn't add to the film at all. Unless you are willing to pay an inflated price to see bubbles wander from the screen from time to time it really isn't worth it.

I have given this film 1/2 star ou...

"Avatar" by Yojimbo

A wheelchair bound ex-marine is called in to manipulate a genetically engineered version of a member of the indigenous population of a forest planet in an attempt to remove them from their homeland so it can be strip-mined for a rare mineral. James Cameron's return behind the camera is well known for its ground breaking 3D effects, but it was more his track record of producing the interesting stories that gave the original concepts of Alien and The Terminator a different twist which attracted me to this movie. In this case however, all he has presented us with is another Hollywood guilt trip about the murder of the previous occupants of the US in the middle of a huge CGI circle jerk. Much of this film is visually impressive but still unconvincing as a real world, feeling more like an elab...

SO i previously said I was reluctant to watch Avatar because of all the Hype. But I relented and it was great. Watched it in 2d and then in 3d. [Sad I know] And the 3 d experience was much better

Yeah, this whole 3D thing is overrated. It would be a terrible thing if it completely took over the world of cinema. Like Roger Ebert said, I can't imagine seeing a serious drama in 3D...

This movie is extraordinary in blue-ray (2D).  The best visuals I've ever seen. It deserves the attention it is getting.

No worries. Many have this opinion. Only time will tell how good this film is. In a way I hate the film because of the 3D fad it is bringing on. I have not seen this movie in 2D yet, but I can't imagine it being worse than it was in 3D.
