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 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,…
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…
Uh can someone please explain how this got nominated for Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
Film #15 in the 2000s Sci-Fi Marathon!
Welcome to the final day of the 2000s Sci-Fi Marathon, that is until I can get my hands on a copy of Danny Boyle's Sunshine. F**king Netflix! Anyways, today we'll be taking a look at Avatar.
In this film, the humans send genetically engineered recreations, or Avatars, of an alien race called the Na'vi down to their home planet of Pandora in order to.......um, I don't remember if they were supposed to build peace with the Na'vi or just tear down their trees. A group of people are strapped into machines that puts them into the bodies of their Avatar. One of the Avatars escapes from the base, and finds a native…
Ten year old me sat in the theater watching “Avatar” thinking that I was watching the greatest film of all time. Unfortunately I can’t say that sixteen year old me had exactly have the same reaction. While I still think the film works as a relatively fun black hats vs. white hats action movie the rest of the film is pretty awful.
When I say this I really don’t mean it as hyperbole because much of the human interaction, especially when it is pushing its ideals onto you feels much like a poorly executed message movie and not a summer blockbuster. That being said I want to make something clear, I think a deeper meaning can really elevate summer movies…
Overrated piece of shit!

Ok i rewatched this a couple of nights ago and it severely does not hold up to the test of time however i love the cast so u kno
The main issues with this film are cartoonish villains and boring protagonists. The pros are the world building and the mythos that it creates. The film is underrated, I do not consider this a bad movie because we need more films that are not based on anything else and that create new worlds and races.
Nota = 7
Recently, I've become aware that certain films are able to transcend the medium by being completely self-assured in their atmospheres…
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
