Well, in terms of special effects, the academy is going to invent new awards just so this movie can win them. This movie makes any other special effect movie look like a crayon drawing. I did dislike the preachy plot. you can make a good movie without it being preachy. in terms of special effects though, this movie it the most amazing thing that I have eve seen. As there are 10 best picture nominees this film is sure to get a best picture nomination (star wars episode IV did because of its special effects). of course in 5 years we will have something that makes this movie look like a crayon drawing. but until then, no one can deny that this movie is a true achievement in film making. the only problem is the preachy plot. although the special effects were so good that you really didn't care. wow. this movie rocked.
I saw this movie again. I feel that now that the special effects are not blinding me this movie isn't as good as I thought it was. I see the rotten plot, crappy screenplay, and the sub par acting more clearly. it isn't as good. the magic of the special effects were diminished. I really hope that this movie doesn't win Best Picture. if it does I will be rather livid.
Well, it didn't win. Thank goodness. History will vindicate the choice. After a third time you really cease to care. There is nothing to care about. There is a Far Side cartoon where a family is gazing out into the Grand Canyon and they don't notice that it's merely a backdrop with nothing behind it. That's Avatar. It has nothing to it except its visuals. James Cameron doesn't think he needs anything else. He's like a classier Michael Bay.
