Enter the World of Pandora.
In the 22nd century, a paraplegic Marine is dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission, but becomes torn between following orders and protecting an alien civilization.
James Cameron's next film is just going to be footage of him squealing with glee, naked, touching himself, in a pile of your hard earned money, on a greenscreen backdrop, in 3D, mocking you for spending so much cash to see his hokey movies. You'll love it and it will break all kinds of records and James Cameron will then buy the moon.
...Right. Ok, so I'll be honest. The first time I saw this I thought it was a technological masterpiece and was blown away by what I was watching. I rated it 4 stars.
Now, watching it at home on the small screen, I had to struggle to finish it. I was bored out of my skull. Sure, it is still a feast of well made CGI and innovative technology and I applaud Cameron for it. But he should have thought about the plot a bit harder. Just a tad.
Still, the plot is what it is and doesn't do justice to the visual achievements, but that's not what irked me about it now. This film's ego is too big. It…
The most overrated movie of all time.
James Cameron's Avatar, above all else, is a transporting and utterly breathtaking experience. Let's face it, whether you were for or against this movie from the beginning, you cannot deny the miraculous and wondrous scope of the entire project. In terms of the hype and build-up for the film's initial release, there has never been a film that was as-talked about and water-cooler friendly than Avatar. Hell, I remember going to see the film opening night on the biggest screen possible in 3D, and at least three people that I knew were there. It was an event, one that brought the collective moviegoing audience together for a ride that hasn't been bested in modern cinema.
Now, I'm just going to…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
I would say that I don't understand why this movie gets so much hate, but that would be a lie. I get it. I get that most people these days don't enjoy movies *as movies*. They may think they do, but they really just enjoy the fact that movies entertain them. There's a difference.
What people don't like about Avatar is that it was made to be a good movie, and not made to be a dumb source of entertainment for the misguided youth of today. Yes, it has a classic structure. Yes, it has common themes. Yes, it's a *story*. And that's what most people these days don't care for.
There are other reasons people will blindly dislike this,…
Dammit, I'm starting to feel like this film's fickle mistress.
The first time I watched this I rated it four stars, the second time I wasn't that generous.
Yesterday my mate wanted to show off his 'I'm single and have too much money' TV and decided to do that by screening Avatar. I was not exactly bursting at the seems with enthusiasm.
Still something funny happened. Going in and knowing I felt the story to be bland and predictable I could somehow appreciate Cameron's obvious skill at creating unique visuals and marvellous action sequences much more.
I actually enjoyed myself a bit, which surprised me a lot.
So I'll settle the difference and leave it at that. ..
I was unashamedly rooting for the humans.
I hope they come back in the sequels to wipe the Na'vi out.
If it's any good it's because James Cameron is a fantastic storyteller.
I just couldn't stand a lot things in it, like the romanization of the wilderness and primitive cultures and the mythical/environmental mambo jambo, but what really irked me was how everything was treated in such b&w fashion, how the movie showed human's demise with certain joy, heavy handed lectures.
Of course the biggest unobtanium deposit had to be right below the home tree of the virtuous and angelic smurfs so the big bad corporate and military guys could do their thing.
True Lies 70/100
The Abyss 60/100
Piranha 2 10/100
Avatar drags after the first 20 minutes.
This movie is not good. It is not interesting. Why are the people blue. Why are they so big. These are the questions that haunt me as I lay awake at night, thinking about how much I disliked this movie.
Technology has finally landed on it's feet, and who better to be at it's controls
When I first saw this film, I wasn't too impressed. The visual effects were great, but everything else didn't do much for me. After rewatching it, I feel I was a little harsh on the film. The visuals are still great and the story and the world that is created are both great. I do feel some of the characters are paper thin, but I can look past that for what is presented and presented well.
I shouldn't have done this.
Star Wars got me interested. How is it that a film with such an incredible cult following, that delivered a fantastically entertaining blockbuster, still can't come close to the box office of this? I hadn't seen it since IMAXing its original release and wondered if just hating 3D was the reason I didn't like it? Maybe it was worth another shot? And for £4 the Blu-ray seemed a reasonable bet.
It was a waste of £4 and 3 hours.
This film is shit. It's shit and reasonably offensive. It's very pretty, though usually looks like a cartoon and not a film, but there's some stuff here that would make lovely screensavers. As a film goes…
A little better with expectations in check. But still a slog and unoriginal and mostly boring since I've seen the story many times before.
It has its moments, but the #1 movie of all time thing totally and utterly baffles me.
Allora, andiamo con ordine: chi ha pensato a Pottaontas in chiave aliena è uno psicopatico figlio di puttana ma mi sta bene. Chi ha pensato a gente che scopa con la coda invece è malato e necessità di cure mediche obbligatorie e non mi sta bene. A prescindere dal fatto che manca la figa per 4 ore di film e che comunque uscito dal cinema hai una voglia di trombare mostruosa, si tratta di un film bello anche se non capisco senza patata come abbia incassato 3 miliardi. Da dire che probabilmente gente malata si eccita guardando alieni che si ficcano la coda nel buco del culo. In definitiva una pletora di personaggi antipatici come merde e tantissimi effetti speciali che alla lunga cacano la minchia. Per quanto mi riguarda dell'albero della vita non me ne frega un cazzo ma dato che ci trombano sopra può andare
