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. ..
visually, this movie is stunning. but other than it's not very memorable.
Too much CGI in this film but still holds up to be very thrilling and entertaining
Very cliched and well worn plot line done surprisingly well. The whole thing is aesthetics and atmosphere and it does it well. It achieved it's purpose.
Too long and too loud. I've always ended up falling asleep to it and then waking up at the big fighting scene and turning it off.
Aunque la pelicula se vea impresionante en nivel técnico, no es excusa que el guión sea una atropello de clichés.
MY FAVOURITE FILM EVER MADE!!! A TIE WITH FANTASTIC FOUR 2015!!! THE SPEICAL EFFECTS ARE SPECTACULAR AND THE ACTION IS GREAT!! I LOVE JAMES CAMERON!!! YOU HAVE CHANGED MY LIFE!!! OH MY GOD I LOVE THIS FILM!!! I USED TO WATCH IT ALMOST EVER DAY!!! IVE SEEN IT AT LEAST 200 TIMES, I CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF IT!! LONG LIVE THE NAVVI AND HERE'S TO AVATAR 2!!! 🍻
I'm not a huge fan of this movie, although I'm sure if I'd seen it on the big screen it would've been much more impressive. Even though the technical accomplishments are really astounding, it's too cheesy for me, even though it is sincere enough to withstand the sappy element. I did feel something for the characters but wasn't moved enough to cry at the end (and I cry at everything, movie-wise).

Fun to watch, albeit too long for its own good. For it's age, the technical aspect of the film is very impressive. It's engaging and beautiful to look at, despite some odd discrepancies when actual humans are on screen alongside the Na'Vis and its decided overkill in presentation.
As far as plot goes, it's not enough to sustain a three hour film and is the status quo Hollywood style action/romance film. It's the usual trite James Cameron plotline. Character interactions go exactly as predicted and are very safe and by the books. Avatar, more than anything, is a tech demo that showcases wonderful special effects that is also a clear parallel to American Imperialism.
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
