"Avatar" was a spectacular feat when first released. It was met with critical praise, multiple Academy Award nominations, and (until "Avengers: Endgame") was the highest grossing film of all time. One decade later, it hasn't gained much of a legacy beyond its now defeated box-office record. The characters are flat and the CGI, while not totally dated, looks about as good as any modern video game. The anti-colonization message is more self-righteous than profound and the whole thing is pretty much just a list of tropes. Also, am I the only one who notices the plot similarities between this movie and Disney's "Atlantis: The Lost Empire?"
