It was good. Aside from the 1/2 hour of cellphone ads that I had to sit through before it started. What is wrong with these cellphone ads nowadays? Doesn't every body have a cellphone already? Cow on bicycle! Have they nothing better to do? What about showing some movie trailers? Remember those?

Anyway, avatar is a kinda mish-mash of simpler better movies. The 3d effects are good at points and the CGI is next to perfect. I give it a 8 out of 10. If you have never seen a 3d movie before this is the one to see. If you like trees, Beyond Good and Evil or weird alien plants then this movie will be worth your money. Perfect CGI and some robot action is in there too.

  10. I know it was long but didn't anyone get the real message behind the outrageous special effects. We are using all of our natural resources and soon there wont be any left.

    Greed is such a ugly trait, the corporation ( government) was just willing to destroy what ever was in their way to make $$$$$$$$$

    the world needs to wake up and smell the beauty of the planet before there is no planet left.

    We live in Pandora but we are wasting it away and most people don't even care.

  11. There are so many messages in this movie. I think Mr. Cameron used thus movie to deliever powerful political message about greed, imperialism and war.
    As i watched Avatar i could see the Iraq US war. Even the term "shock and awe" used during the Bush presidency was used in the movie to describe the massive attack on Pandora. The civilian in charge of the entire operation to mine the valuable resource on Pandora even has Bush characteristics. A shorter, arrogant man who hardly considers other opinons. The psycopathic general is ofcourse the henchman.

    The marine sent to learn the ways of the natives can be seen as the clandestine CIA operative. The valuable resource is the oil.

    The movie is also a reflection of ourselves. We have environmental decline and we seek out to resources the maintain our need to become more techologically advanced. To support the ever expanding lifestyle. The native of Pandora is a reflection of who we once were ( ancestors). A simpler people who were one with nature. A communion lifestyle were our egos are not fed by material things,but instead with a simpler life of love.
    Avatar is about who the human race was and who it has become. the message we are destroying nature, robbing it to advance ourselves.

    There is even racism in this movie. I personally find the physical features of the natives very appealing. I think thin are bi-species if ever there is a think. They taller than the average human, they have cat like features, eyes, nose even a tail. The skin pigmentation is different also hence the racial comment by the general "blue monkey".

    There ofcourse love, betrayal and adventure. Personally i like the message, it was a bit long. The techology used to make the avatars look real, it was personally a little unsettling.

    I would give this movie 7 out of 10

    I must say that Blindside is a great movie. It reminds me of "presious".

  12. the movie had "messages" but i thought of them in the same league that I thought of the messages in Transformers 2. The director was simply trying to appear "deep" while shooting a porno. The message (what little there was) got lost in the imagery.

  13. I plan to go watch Avatar tomorrow, watched Ninja Assassin a few days ago. Those are the only 2 movies on my list for the rest of the year.
