Great movie, strong and different story line, amazing special effects......one word of advice though: This is in 3D and if you have a headache or not feeling well, not advisable to watch the movie that day. I had not slept well the night before and had a slight6 headache the day I went for the movie. Moreover I was late so I had to sit in the 2nd row. It gave me a spolitting headache and my eyes throbbed like crazy. So, its a great movie but be prepared for a bad headache or diziness if you get a front row seat or you are not feeling well already.
I went with family to se Avatar and expected to be a poor knockoff of the TV series. We were not only glad it had nothing to do with the series, but were all very impressed with teh movie overall. Great cinematography, special effects, and a good story to bind it all together. Highly recommend it to anyone. Good for the entire family.
Hello, Please do not go to the Esquire movie theater on Clayton ave. to see this film. This is not a 3-D movie theater.
The practice of deception by the marketers is not fair to the movie going public. I am sure it will be enjoyable, just feel shortchanged.
I've heard a lot of people complaining about the movie, and how unsurprised they were by it, how how 'New Age' and crappy it was, and all I can think is...'Wow. We are looking our gift horses in the mouth.'
Avatar is not a film to see if you are expecting a psychological thriller, or if you want a completely new plot. It has predictable portions of the plot, and no one goes into it expecting the bad guys to win.
That being said, if you go into the movie ready to see a fantastic and detailed alien world, or to enjoy the absolutely amazing visuals of flight, then this is a good one for you. If you want a movie that has a happy ending, and fits the tried-and-true hero myth, then go see Avatar. Walking in with a child's wonder at the world only makes the film more enjoyable--put aside your skepticism and your adult expectations, and watch the movie like a child would. Enjoy the aliens and their language, the weird animals, the space ships, the costumes, and the explosions. It helps to be easily amused by flashy lights and shiny colors.
My goodness! Yet another turd from Hollywood! Well, at least (I kept telling mysellf) it's awful PRETTY to look at! I was pleased to discover, however, that when James Cameron makes crap it never stinks quite as badly as say a J.J. Abrahms film or lately, a Peter Jackson effort. We can all take some comfort in the knowing that Cameron can at least afford a tripod and a Steady-Cam when he makes a movie. None of this hand-held, quick, slash-editing process that leaves the audience looking for a place to barf.
An extraordinary thing has happened in Hollywood. It DIED and we were simply never told about it. Even the teenagers are convinced something is not quite right. Their movie dollars seem to be strangely disappearing without getting anything in return. Hollywood is dead, but for some reason, it keeps making movies.
Perhaps this is why ZOMBIE and VAMPIRE movies are the only thing resonating with the public these days. Perhaps we all sense that even though this rotting carcass LOOKS and SOUNDS like our old, former friend there's something weird the way it keeps making the same f***ing movie OVER and OVER again. I'm not sure I needed to see "Dances With Wolves" remade with splendid Disney cliches. Pocahontus with a Jamaican accent.
I swear, when I put a mirror up to the screen...there was no reflection!
A steaming pile of New Age excrement served with a sugary coating. Pretty to look at, but definitely not worth supporting the obvious agenda. In fact, about the only New age idea that wasn't glamorized was same-sex marriage. I'm surprised that the director left that out.
