It's not my cup of tea, honestly. I respect that others like the visuals and what not, but I believe that it just makes it the worlds most expensive screen saver. I remember seeing the trailers and chuckling to myself that I was sure this piece of crap would tank.

A lot of people go to movies for escapism, but I prefer plots where everyone is miserable. As Kurt Vonnegut once said "Be a sadist. Now matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of." I would have been so happy with the movie if it looked like everything was going to be boring and cliche, then in the end all of the navi's would eat Jake. Then there would be some dialogue about how much more noble the natives are than regular civilizations in closing. Yay moral ambiguity.

I'll be the first to admit I have really got into movies/books/anime etc before, But why would anyone in sound mind (not illness) be suicidal after watching a certain movie? It surprises me how somebody can think that their life is so bad and want to off them self, but someone that has a life worst than theirs and doesn’t think its bad and wants to live.




How many see's the word Avatar and thinks "air bender"? :-k

Avatar is very investment in money also most price able picture it. Also to picture is animation to make it. Most expensive movie in Hollywood. But India and UK very famous all the part in picture in it. So very successful business Hollywood and Bollywood.

I just saw it for the first time and I rather enjoyed it.

I enjoy it almost just as an exercise in pushing technology.

This is a must see the film, innovative and extraordinary. I think it will be considered by most film fans as a new milestone in the history of art. The level of realism achieved is remarkable, and though the film is relatively long in real time, whose enthusiasm and attract public attention to the final.

Avtar is a happy story, craft and visual possibilities cinema. Cameron put his sights to the techniques the film before, no one went. Him. Picture is amazing.
