Movie review: Avatar

Love it. It so never fails me. "Protect the people" lines are still running in my head and it seems that I was so moved about those leadership scenes of the protagonist even that he is a physically challenged. As I watch again the movie "Avatar" on Star Movies yesterday; I felt that huge love for my planet. Talking about saving mother Earth; what will happen if we loose these trees around us if mankind continue to seek for more Earthly riches and ending up ruining the balance of nature? It does happens right now, right? How would you feel about that? Can you relate yourself in this movie? Tell me how do you find this movie for you so far.

I love this movie- one of my all time favorites. Everything was just great. The cast, the scenery/world, the story, the effects..it was really exciting and cute for the alien and man to fall in love. I hope James makes anther one,

Yeah director James Cameron should produce another movie like Avatar though the last time I heard or read of him was of his submarine dive to the bottom of the sea. I heard that ever since then he has been working on documentaries rather than animated films with his new 3D technology. Whatever it is, I would watch whatever he produces.

He's a great movie God. he's the one who made Titanic, right? No wonder he's getting a lot of awards. That's great of you who's really looking forward to watch movies that he produce. And please be happy mylotting about it then ^_^-)

Definitely a good director/producer..I watched the terminator movies and series too- he makes such interesting movies. I wonder why the director of Hurt Locker won over him.

Well,I'm always puzzled when people say they liked Avatar.Before I continue I just want to say that I don't mean to offed anyone who likes it,just expressing honest opinion.Avatar just looks amazing.Seeing it on the big screen it's just breath taking.All the effects and the 3D...Just stunning.But that doesn't mean that it's a good movie for me,at least. I love original ideas and plots and I appreciate that most about a movie. Which means the only thing I appreciated about Avatar were the effects. I found it cliche`d and I found nothing truly original and memorable about the plot and it didn't really move me or make me excited.I mean even some of the animals were boring,despite the fact that they were supposed to be alien. I just stood there for the entire movie and thought "Wooow! Such amazing affects.Why would they put them in a movie that is so...boring..." I'm sorry,again,this is solely my opinion,maybe I don't have enough emotional experience to feel it properly and mabe I'll change my opinion after I see it again in 5 years. Just my two cents,I'm sorry,for the 3rd time but this is what MyLot is for right? Discussing things and expressing our personal opinions.

Stop apologizing, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and taste in movies. Personally I thought the movie was enjoyable, but you're right when you say the storyline isn't original. It's a pretty standard tale of good versus evil.

Yup. We do appreciate your feedback about the same storyline about species and stuff. The graphics is nice though. Don't worry; we'll check for other dystopian movies (or the movies which in the end people in the story remains worthless and can't win over the antagonist's corruption) Usually it depends on the environment of the movie's story. If it is a utopia era (or with a perfect everything on it) it may give you the bad ending in which the utopian country or community gets destroyed or the one that I have mentioned which is dystopia. Check it in Wikipedia for further referrence about it. It's normal getting tired of same kind of story line. I'm also tired or dramas and teleseryes (dramas on television involving typical poor girl-righ guy love scenes) ...But I won't change my thoughts about it. Avatar is cool ^__^-)

SO you understand how I feel? When one of my friends read my response she pointed something I haven't noticed before as quite original in Avatar and I have to agree with her- it's pretty rare for the humans to presented as a threat and it does convey a good message about protecting our environment .My point is I may have underestimated it due to being overwhelmed by the graphic and because most of the people like it and I like going against the flow.I guess I'll re-watch it(my parents have it in their DVD library) and decide what I ultimately think about it.

It was good, great graphics, good idea, but the story was a bit too common. Same old story, 2 lovers from diferent worlds. But the planet and the idea was great. It would be great if we could be like them and connect to earth, all of us. Some can some not some training to get there. Hope we will get there someday.

But we never grew old watching it. It's a part of us humans to know how we can improve life and how to protect ourselves and our lifestyle. Like what I have brought up with the previous post; Movie makers never grew tired in making stories like this because movie goers are still optimistic to see how the protagonist solved this dilemma along the movie. That's what happened to Jake, right? He maybe crippled but he'll know what to do. Having guts is also important and this what connects the viewers to see more what his guts can do in the movie. Great actor with great cinematography and story settings equals one epic film. So epic-ness!

I loved this movie- everything was great- the effects, the cast the story.. it was quite nice- a nice thought about the future. Pandora was such a nice planet, I hope our planet could be like that.

Yeah! Pandora rocks. What fascinates me are the animals. That you can interact with them is so cool! You'll put your tail or hair (or pony tail; whatever it is called!) and they're connect tou your minds in what you want to do for them. The element of the story did rocks a lot. Come to think about it; where was it shoot?

I had a nice time watching the avatar in the theater in 3D. Apart from being a spectacular movie, it had also the beautiful messages about the importance of our planet. The only thing that was a downer for me, was the fact it had a large number of similarities with disney's pocahontas. I don't know if you've noticed it, but next time you want to watch the avatar, give pocahontas a watch:P

Hahaha..I did. What gives me this interest is that the plot didn't happend on EARTH. It happened to another planet that the team discovered; if you watch the movies. There is a line there in which the guy told the Planet's Spirit "Aewa" that back on Earth, it didn't have greens and humans have killed their mother land; which is sad because it may happen to their planet if not being resolved. Poccahontas is nice; but Avatar is so great it has been another top-seller again in most cinemas.

Greatness in every scene and for once I was bracing myself for the falling of the tree. That part is so emotional. He did a great angle and cinematography of that shot to portray feelings of despair and sadness of the tribe as they lost their homes. I really do apreeciate your feedback about this movie. I am also looking forward to hear more from you here in mylot. Thanks and enjoy mylotting!
