I finally saw Avatar between Chrimbo and New Year. I loved it. Sure the story isn't the best, or the most original, but it was one heck of a spectacle and quite an achievement. I hope to catch it on the big screen again before it concludes its run which, given its apparent box office success, may prove to be a while away yet.

And here's an interesting article on its success. Already the fourth biggest film of all time in a mere three weeks. Woah.

I thought it looked fantastic, the 3D really did immerse you more thoroughly into the action scenes making them more exciting. However, most of it was incredibly dull. I was seriously bored for the most part, often wishing they'd done something with this medium that I liked. I looked at my watch 4 times. I rarely (if ever) look at watch in the cinema.
At times it was like one long Final Fantasy game cutscene for both good & bad - basically some kind of In the Jungle special with Kimahri Ronso episode.
It'll be interesting to see where they go with Digital 3D & if it will enhance movie going or in the end just become a fad we become bored of. I won't be watching Avatar again.

I really liked it. Basically the same review as everyone else who's commented on it so far - too long, nothing special story-wise, but very pretty to look at. Personally, I didn't find myself bored, but I think I'm just easily pleased as well. Would like to see it again as there seems to be no point in buying it on DVD, so I probably won't get another chance!

I thought I'd posted in this thread. Odd.

Anyway, I think my view on the film falls somewhere between Rua's and Ade's. I thought the effects were stunning and the 3D was well-implemented (though I don't think it immersed me in the film anymore than the film would have otherwise) but the story was pretty dull and predictable; Mark Kermode's description of it as being like watching an ocean liner turn, you can see where it's going but it takes so long to get there, seems more and more apposite the more I think about the film. However, I wasn't bored whilst watching it, I just wasn't that engaged with it. I liked it, but I doubt I'd watch it again in the cinemas, unless I could watch it in 2D since I'm fairly certain that I'd enjoy it just as much and wouldn't feel more or less immersed in it.

This appears to be happening to you a lot recently, I've noticed. Your epic reviews must be melting holes in the threads. Or something.



Probably something.

I really don't think they should have had tails. It very difficult to take someone making a very dramatic, motivating speech seriously when his tail keeps wagging furiously after every other sentence.

Otherwise, smashing fun. It's hardly Aliens, but then what is?

Did anyone else think that when they fused Sigorney Weaver's DNA with the aliens the genes they fused were mainly those for having a huge rack? She was like the Lola Ferrari of the flat chested people of Pandora
