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…
Film #25 of the "Scavenger Hunt" Challenge!
Task #16 : A film you wish could be the story of your life!
So why on earth would I pick this film as the one I wish had been the story of my life! The way I see it the Na'vi live life in the most honorable way! There is great sense of strength found in the family unit, the community, and an even stronger connection with their environment on Pandora! They respect all forms of life!
They live in a gloriously pristine world that is simply breathtaking and boggles the imagination! It is unlike anything I have ever seen to me this world would be the ultimate in…
This review reportedly contains 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,…
Watch this in a small frame (notebook, tv, etc.), and you'll see how shallow and boring it really is.
Full of awful characters and clichés. Pretty to look at, but not much beyond that. I don't get it.
ok so ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I've seen this like twice ??? already and didn't like it either time but like ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, I actually really enjoyed it. It is Way Too Long but also sigourney and michelle rodriguez's characters totally redeem it tbh also zoe saldana is a* and tbh I'm a sucker for this kinda thing anyway. maybe it's bc all of the hype was six years ago so I've forgotten how annoying everyone was about it.
(also trudy/grace is end game and you can't tell me otherwise I don't cARE that they're both dead fight me)
Despite the lack of originality and James Cameron's screenplay obnoxiously beating audiences over their heads with the rather simple message, Avatar still makes for an entertaining, beautifully-paced sci-fi film with breathtaking visuals and production designs, gorgeous cinematography, a terrific score from James Horner, and great performances.
More of a cinema experience than anything. Away from the big screen its essential a big pile of shite!!
Ik was sceptisch tav deze film, maar dat was onterecht. Een prachtig verfilm SF-verhaal, met de nodige actie en emotie en briljante special effects.
This movie really got my blood boiling! It was a pretty picture with a nonsensical storyline.
Let's start with the visuals. Loved how he dulled the rainforest so the neon wouldn't seem so garish. I loved the wyvren and their coloring as well as the way their wings flared apart and up when their 'hands' we're at the ground (especially the magnificant big yellow, orange and red wyvren.) the fact you bond to the animals and trees through the threads in the hair was a very intriguing idea especially with the thought that their history was kept by the souls joining with the trees at death to be a voice in that history. I loved all the neon and the…
"They're just pissing on us without even giving us the courtesy of calling it rain."
The Plot: On the lush alien world of Pandora live the Na'vi, beings who appear primitive but are highly evolved. Because the planet's environment is poisonous, human/Na'vi hybrids, called Avatars, must link to human minds to allow for free movement on Pandora. Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), a paralyzed former Marine, becomes mobile again through one such Avatar and falls in love with a Na'vi woman (Zoe Saldana). As a bond with her grows, he is drawn into a battle for the survival of her world.
This movie was a huge disappointment for me, I expected something a lot better after hearing great things about it.…
