Hmmm, I guess I'll be the first to dislike this movie. The visuals were ok, but the story, well, fuck the story. We get it Hollywood. America is evil. Money is evil. Blah Blah Blah. The irony is the budget for this movie was a friggin half a billion dollars!!!! Fuck I hate you leftist shitheads and all your hypocrisy.

Saw it in 3D tonight. Loved it! Very entertaining and a visual feast. Hokey plot, so what. Probably no such thing as an original plot anymore anyways. What gets me is that I paid like $12 and had to sit through 30 minutes of fucking t.v. commercials before the movie started. A great argument for staying home and waiting for the dvd to come out. Except, this movie needs to be seen on a big screen.Try to keep two ideas in your head at the same time without blowing your brains out your ass.

When it comes to this movie I don't give a flying fuck about the plot. The CGI in 3d was seriously mind blowing and if you cannot get over yourself and just enjoy the ride then you are very boring person. If I want to challenge myself mentally, I do not do it by going to the cinema.
The story of this movie could be told about a trillion different ways, but the visuals it brought are waaaaaaaaay ahead of any movie I have seen.go huck yourself

Loved it. Yes the storyline was cliche but it doesn't matter. The environment on the planet is just sick. I'm a huge fan of under sea environments and the way everything is luminescent like the ocean was just incredible. The night scenes in the jungle OMG!

I think Manohla Dargis, writing for the new york times, summed it up very nicely in her final paragraph
Few films return us to the lost world of our first cinematic experiences, to that magical moment when movies really were bigger than life (instead of iPhone size), if only because we were children. Movies rarely carry us away, few even try. They entertain and instruct and sometimes enlighten. Some attempt to overwhelm us, but their efforts are usually a matter of volume. Whatís often missing is awe, something Mr. Cameron has, after an absence from Hollywood, returned to the screen with a vengeance. He hasnít changed cinema, but with blue people and pink blooms he has confirmed its wonder.

saw it in 3d last night with the gf. a few corny lines here & there but decent story and pretty amazing overall. the depth & detail of the world cameron has created is incredible. would definitely go see again.
We've won it. It's going to get better now. You can sort of tell these things.

Just saw it in Imax 3D, fully lived up to and exceeded the hype, amazing.
3D is a must, and Imax if possible. This wouldn't be the same on even a really high end home theater.

Go see Avatar.
I highly recommend seeing it in 3D at an Imax theater.
Just sit back and enjoy the movie for what it is; enjoy the ride, you'll be blown away.
So what if the plot was imperfect. Who cares if there were predictable moments. Maybe the flying machines were too similar to some you've seen in Popular Mechanics. Personally, I didn't get caught up in any shortcomings the film may have. I was there to be entertained. And I most definitely was entertained.Donít race. Leave that to the scorchers.

I'll have to see it again, because frankly, most of the film I was trying to see the woman's nipples.Charlie, here comes the deuce. And when you speak of me, speak well.

Saw it in 3D. Loved it. I echo others in that the story was so-so and predictable. But it was good enough. Absolutely visually stunning. I can't get over the superb detail in the creation of the world and the different creatures.
I will see it again in 3D and try to not watch the main characters or main parts of each scene, but try to pay closer attention to all the smaller details in every scene. Can't wait."A local is just a dirtbag who can't get his shit together enough to travel."

One movie no one has mentioned that Avatar is a ripoff of is Ferngully, an old cartoon movie. My little sister loved that movie so it was on all the goddamn time when I was a kid. And annoyingly enough it was all I could think of as I was watching this movie after not thinking about it for 15+ years. The plot is identical.
I wanted to see more fighting. More shots of the aliens(non humans) interacting with humans. The scene where the alien dude hops into the back of the transport and fucks up shit was bad ass. Definitely needed more of that. It seemed like the movie should have opened with a scene where a marine patrol was ambushed by the native cat people. Something to set the plot up better.
Also I think it would have been much better if Cameron would have just made the movie a complete fantasy, dont tie in greedy companies and US marines. More like star wars where it is a separate world all together. It would help alleviate the little plot holes that piss me off. Like low impact exploratory drilling instead of blowing the fuck out of their home. Or why the hell are people smoking in the future, inside! Pissed me off in Aliens, and now in this one.
All in all, definitely worth seeing in 3-D, not a bad movie by any means. And it is incredible just to watch, no matter what is going on onscreen.

Yes, a total re-make of FernGully; the Last Rainforest.
One of the most amazing movie experiences I have seen since the first Star Wars.
Plot was predictable and thin but I agree; who cares, didn't distract too much.
Sigourney Weaver's performance was flat and awkward.
But the Uhuru blue-=cat princess acting job was actually pretty amazing, can an animated character get an oscar? and yes...I kept looking for the nips too.
One of the first movies where you forget you are watching 100% CGI.

We went again last night. Watched it in 3D, but not Imax. To my jaundiced eyes, the difference in the colors was amazing. The Imax version was so much more vivid.
I was also able to watch for things I may have overlooked the first time - I don't think the blue-cats have nipples.Donít race. Leave that to the scorchers.

We went and saw it at the regular theater first, and thought it was great. I definitely don't think you need 3D or IMAX to appreciate it.
And then I went and saw it again last night in 3D/IMAX and while it was really cool - it MOSTLY adds to the experience, but there are a handful of spots that I thought the 3D was kindof distracting.
Anyway - it's an awesome movie either way. It's predictable, but who cares.
And after seeing it twice, I don't remember a damn thing about the soundtrack, so I guess that means it flowed with the movie pretty well."Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, "Wow, what a Ride!"

I saw it in 3D (not imax) and was blown away. My expectations were so high I thought there was no way it could possibly deliver, but it managed to. Yeah the plot was pretty cliche but the visuals were just amazing. I can't remember the last time I noticed how beautiful colors were but some of them just jumped. The night jungle scene was unreal. Although I wasn't sure how to feel about being attracted to a 9FT blue chick...

I haven't seen it yet, but I don't get these visually stunning movies that are really nothing more than that.
If I want to see something visually stunning, I just look down the front of my pants, or step out my front door and look up at the Wasatch, or any number of places that are far more stunning in real life than pretty colors on a screen.
In order for a movie to draw me in, the characters and plot has to draw me in, the CG and everything else just adds to that. Pretty colors and no substance = a really complicated kaleidoscope which = fucking boring, at least to me.
There are no shortage of "visually stunning" movies that are triumphs of CG and technology, but really have nothing more going for them. After a while, they just sort of start to feel overwhelming because they're really all the same crappy movie just tweaked a little with different flashy colors and all they really do is just bombard your senses like a blunt object.__________________________________________________ __________________________________________________ ________________
