Will you buy it? I think I might. I hated it when I saw it in 3D and think 2D Blu-Ray might be a different experience. The 3D glasses kept distracting me. I was also under the assumption that Avatar would change my whole way of life. It didn’t. What it did do was go on to be the highest grossing movie ever. I think I need to give it another shot. I feel like such a hater.
FilmSchoolRejects.com lists 7 reasons you shouldn’t buy it and 3 reasons why you should. If I do buy this movie, it will be this version because I could give 2 shits about all the extra material. I don’t need to watch James Cameron sniff his own farts for 4 hours.
I have no idea what to say about this except I’m disappointed…that’s it. I’m just disappointed.
I hate the internet so much right now.
Nice effort, but it didn’t change my life. Visually Avatar is amazing. There’s no denying the work that James Cameron put into the film. The problem with the movie is the story. Midway through the film I realized I didn’t care about either side (the Na’vi or the sky people); I just wanted it to end. My friend ERK made the comment that no matter how good a movie looks a shitty story is still a shitty story.
Here’s a couple of things I learned from Avatar: 1) Sam Worthington is the real deal. He is probably “the next big thing” if he isn’t already. 2) James Cameron really thinks he’s something. I’m pretty sure he enjoys the smell of his own farts. 3) The future of the sci-fi movie genre looks pretty good. They just can’t forget the story. 4) We need to save the rainforest or something. Like let’s all quit cutting down trees, you guys!
I’ll say one more things about the film real quick if you don’t mind. Each character was one you’ve seen 1000 times before in every other movie ever made. For example, the concerned scientist who gives up her life to try and understand the other culture. The military commander / bad guy who only speaks in cliches and solves every problem with violence. The overzeolus businessman that is only looking at the bottom line. And a protagonist torn between his past and his future. He must make a choice, but you know he’ll choose wisely because he has a huge heart.
Bottom line: Besides the visuals and 3D it kind of sucks. Here’s hoping it doesn’t break any records!

James Cameron’s new movie Avatar came out yesterday. It opened with a Friday total of 27 million. Not bad James Cameron. I’m going to try to see it tomorrow night so I can write about it on Monday. These fans in this picture were lucky to see James Cameron, but he was not lucky to see these nerds…ughh…I mean fans.
NERDS! NERDS! NERDS!
These are getting old, but I’m Avatar-ed out and I can’t help but agree here. The movie looks stupid. I wish everyone would go ahead and admit it. Terminator 2 and Aliens are the shit, but Titanic was lame and Avatar will be jerk-off city for the World of Warcraft crowd.
