The topic: For review:  Avatar


We watched this a couple of weeks ago and we really liked it.

It was a story retold, reminded me greatly of “Dances With Wolves” and it sucks that the bad guys are always Americans.  A greedy lot of bastards, we are….and we always go for the jugular, the part of heritage that will hurt the most.   I’d heard a lot from others who had seen the movie before I had the chance, they all gave it rave reviews.  I wasn’t quite sure what to expect, but from the beginning, when Jake went into dreamstate to become a Pandoran, and met Neytiri, I had a pretty good idea of how it would end. I’ve watched many Disney films and the beginnings and the ends are pretty standardized, but the route that you’re taken to get there is what makes it entertaining.  And I really appreciated the weaving of the mystical into the storyline.  We’d all like to believe in life after death, that we’ve got guardians or angels watching over us. 

The visual effects were nothing short of awesome.  Even Katie sat on the floor watching the television.  If there were a place like that within a two hour drive, I’d go there on a regular basis.  I’d ride one of those bird/bugs. I’d sleep under that tree.   *lol*

It was a wonderful fantasy, great entertainment. It might be a little over the heads of young children, but not overly scary and I’m sure they’ll be entranced by all the vibrant colors.  I know I was.

Two thumbs up.

I loved it, too!  I was so disappointed when it didn’t win either best film and or best director at the Oscars.  At least it one some of the other awards.
