This movie is pathetically unoriginal. It's basically Dances With Wolves meets Fern Gully, set in space.

if you can think of a better movie, let me know, so i can have a laugh

There's literally thousands of movies better than this.

Better sci-fi movies this year - District 9, Moon
Better 3D movies this year - Coraline, UP
Better James Cameron movies - Terminator 2, Titanic

Well I really liked it, I actually cried a little at the end when he almost died and she is trying to save him.

In the year Avatar, do they really know what the Wizard of Oz is? Has it somehow become a seminal piece of human legacy that has been passed down and ceaseless quoted by members of the far future? Is James Cameron trying to tell me that, in Avatar's future, they have the ability to create giant robot suits and control manufactured sentient beings, but haven't made a movie more memorable than the Wizard of Goddamn Oz? If you ask me, that was a poorly written line of dialogue, Jamesy. "

I'm not sure how far in the future this is set but just to point out that these days Shakespeare is still quoted and probably will be for some time.

"We/you are not in Kansas anymore" is a popular quote that has worked its way into our language to a certain extent, and once a saying gets popular use like that it can stay for a long time - there are many element's in our language that people don't even know the origin of these days, some of them going back centuries. How much longer will a saying last when the original is still known?

I thought it was a pretty good movie. I admit the characters were flat and the storyline was like Braveheart meets Greenpeace, but it had great action scenes, beautiful flora and fauna, and probably one of the better messages to come out of a movie lately: That human beings are horrible things. That, and we need to protect the planet so that we don't get fucked over like Earth in that movie was.

But for some reason, the instant I stepped into the theatre, I knew there would be freaky, Mass Effect-like, blue alien sex. And I was right.

The movie is a crowd pleaser, the average person who only goes to see movies once in a while will like it because its familiar predictable action. As for people like us who see too many movies we've simply become too familiar with a recycled plot that the 3D effects aren't enough to make up for it. Surely the movie was pretty cool in 3D for roughly the first hour but no movie like this needs to be 3 hours long. It was painful to sit through but we stuck through the meaty middle part which was just awful to go through and finally we get to a sub par finale, which is nice but even that seems formulaic at that point


Mushroomn. 6 years later it's kind of a dumbass name. Sorry about that

haven't seen it but i plan on it seeing it and for some reasons ive had low expectations from the beginning im a movie whore and Ive noticed a lot of things the more hyped up and expensive the movie the more it blows but i guess that's an uncommon thing and i have this feeling its gonna have some fucking Pocahontas like story to it

If you don't like Terminator 2 then you must not like movies in general. I can understand why a 12 year old wouldn't want to admit that Titanic is a good movie, but Terminator 2? You don't have any valid opinions then.

Moon is one of my favorite movies of the year, it's like 2001: A Space Odyssey meets The Twilight Zone.

That's exactly what I first thought when I heard the name "Avatar". Then when I saw the trailer I got disappointed.

But I still might go and see it with some friends during the holidays just for having a good time with them. xD

The cast looks nothing like the cartoon characters which makes me think it'll be mediocre. You should see the guys playing as Sakka, and Zuko.

Well I'm going to go see Avatar tomorrow. But what did they even do that revolutionized movie making anyway? The trailers keep saying how movies will never be the same but it looks like any other movie to me.

You'll see when you see it. It won't be like anything you've seen before. And if it does, then you have no idea what you're talking about.

I saw the commercials too, and to me it looked really really shitty and corny. The general guy looked like he was on some sort of super-steroids, and there is no background to it. Its just a big 3D shootout.

Moon was a kinda complicated movie. Basically theres a series of clones of this one guy working on the moon bbut only 1 can be alive at a time. One is thought to be dead so they activate the next, who finds the last one and brings him back to life. From them on all i can say is shit happens. It was an O.K movie but kinda sad

Right when i saw the trailer for that, i realized i wouldn't be able to keep down the massive amounts of cheese that would accumulate from the storyline.

The whole movie was bad, the only good thing was the music.

And i'm getting fucking sick of this CGI and 3D shit going on in movies these days.

It's fucking retarded.

So I should watch Avatar just for the eye candy and not for the storyline/underlying message? Okay, thanks for the advice! Going to watch it this week and won't be disappointed due to already knowing the quality of the apparent plot.

No, I wouldn't recommend Avatar at all. If you want to see a great 3D film with both amazing story and effects, watch Coraline. If you want to see a great science fiction film with both amazing story and effects, see District 9.

If you want to waste 15 dollars and see a poor rehash of every western movie plot ever conceived, then see Avatar.
