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.
...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…
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.
The most overrated movie of all time.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
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. ..
Gets shittier with every viewing.
Thought it was amazing when I first saw it ... now it annoys me.
Every year around Christmas, I get the urge to watch Avatar.
On this year's trip to Pandora, I tried to come to grips with the dialogue, which is clunky at the best of times and cringeworthy at the worst. Only Stephen Lang as the evil army dude is able to make the campiness work in his favor; when Sigourney Weaver and Joel David Moore deliver sarcastic comebacks and call Sully "numb-nuts," it's pretty painful. Zoe Saldana's histrionic motion-capture performance is starting to rub me the wrong way as well.
All that aside, it's still a hell of a ride. The creature design and otherworldly plant life look amazing. The futuristic war machines hold up well and look nicer than a…
Una rivoluzione per la settima arte. Cameron fonde il classico con l'innovazione visiva, mentre il 3D chiude il cerchio.
Piss as drunk watching this. What made Caneron come up with Tree Internet?
Het begin vond ik ietwat te langdradig, en het einde is een beetje te "end good, all good"
Narrativamente funciona perfecta en lo que busca y visualmente, es apabullante. Todavía no ha habido ningún 3D que haya podido superarla.
Modern day Oz, impossible to copy or even emulate and movies that try just kid themselves.
