I don't know that it'd be awful, but you've seen the story over and over in previous films. If you don't mind that, it's still pretty cool.

In theaters, it was pretty damned amazing.

I loved it, saw it 4 times, but if I knew somebody who hadn't seen it, I'd recommend waiting for August (I think it's August), when it's being re-released in theaters. It's a big screen event film in a way that nothing else recent has been.

I think the thing about Avatar is that what it's about isn't deep characters or some grand epiphany of storytelling, it's about creating an immersive experience. If you're the kind of person that can completely lose yourself in another world, it's possible (but not set in stone) that you will. If you're the kind of person that can't suspend your disbelief, or imagine yourself as being somewhere other than the theater seat you're planted in, if you think science fiction (or even fiction in general) is a waste of time, odds are you're going to be bored to tears. It's basically all about dropping you into the world. The protagonist is almost a blank slate, and I think that was done intentionally, so a wider range of the audience would be able to relate to him, to put themselves in his shoes. Beyond that, the story is simple and predictable, again, I think to make it accessable to as wide an audience as possible. In the end, and I say this as somebody who absolutely loved the experience, the whole point of it is really just to make you say "holy shit, that looks awesome". There isn't a whole lot of substance to it beyond that. I would even go on to say you get out of the movie what you put into it, in terms of your own imagination. I actually felt like part of the movie. But I can see how it wouldn't work that way for everyone.

They were just blown away by how cool it was. And frankly, so was I... even though I knew the plot. My boys didn't... and it was cool enough that I was never bored for a second.

So you don't watch them while they're being hyped. You wait, and then form an opinion.

I hate popular movies, so I don't see them.

This would be a very useful example to explain the word "illogical" to a non-native English speaker.

"illogical... what is this word, what does it mean" "hmmm, how should I put it...oh, here's a good example of an illogical statement", etc.

"popular" is an artificial quality imposed on the movie that doesn't really correlate to anything the movie is about, or the movie's genre, or really any intrinsic quality of the movie. A movie is not popular unless other people who had nothing to do with the creation of the movie decide to make it popular by buying tickets.

If you are afraid of crowds, go after a month or two. Not because it is popular, but because you saw the trailer, read reviews, thought it might be an interesting way to spend the evening, etc.

There are lots of "popular" movies I did not go see. Not because it was popular, but because it looked stupid and the reviews seem to confirm my suspicion. However, sometimes a movie is popular because it really is great.

So you decide on whether or not you are going to watch a movie based on how popular it is. So you are still letting others sway your opinion. Like I said, if Avatar wasn't hyped at all you would be more inclined to want to watch it based on your reasoning.

This would be a very useful example to explain the word "illogical" to a non-native English speaker.

"illogical... what is this word, what does it mean" "hmmm, how should I put it...oh, here's a good example of an illogical statement", etc.

"popular" is an artificial quality imposed on the movie that doesn't really correlate to anything the movie is about, or the movie's genre, or really any intrinsic quality of the movie. A movie is not popular unless other people who had nothing to do with the creation of the movie decide to make it popular by buying tickets.

If you are afraid of crowds, go after a month or two. Not because it is popular, but because you saw the trailer, read reviews, thought it might be an interesting way to spend the evening, etc.

There are lots of "popular" movies I did not go see. Not because it was popular, but because it looked stupid and the reviews seem to confirm my suspicion. However, sometimes a movie is popular because it really is great."Popular" probably wasn't a good word.

I should have used "overhyped" instead.

Either way, I don't watch movies. I see maybe 4 or 5 per year. They're just not my thing. I have to really say to myself "this looks great" in order to pay for the ticket and sit in a sticky theater. Avatar didn't do it. It didn't look the slightest bit interesting. From what I gather, it's a film you see for its beauty above all else, and not for the script, drama, or quality of plot. In other words, for me, I'm not going to go see it.

I wouldn't have watched it regardless of how many people loved it. Now that everybody's telling me to go see it, maybe I will. It's out of theaters now, so I'll have to wait a year. That's what this thread was for.

Does that settle things for you people? Jesus Christ on a cracker.

Actually, I think it does. If I only watched 4 movies a year, I might hit 1 "popular" or "overhyped" movie by chance, but in a typical given movie, I tend to go see movies that later end up just merely doing "all right", made some money but not blockbusters.

You're right but most people here seem to be missing the coolest aspect of the film:

Was Pandora a dream or was his real life a dream?

Personally, I felt like each time he woke up in the real world, he was being yanked from a dreamworld. But yet, he was deadset on recovering in the "real world". Meanwhile, he was superhuman on Pandora.

It's quite the conundrum, which is what makes it transcend the other movies that people have said it plagiarizes.

Honestly... yeah, it looked gorgeous. Very cool visuals.

But you got the story from Pocohontas, and the ending is pretty much the end of Star Trek III but in a day-glo jungle.

The characters are all dull and flat except Zoe Saldana's character, the dialogue is ordinary, and 'Unobtanium' is something lifted straight out of 'The Core' with Aaron Eckhart and Hilary Swank.

Looks pretty in 3D. The DVD would be worth at least a rental to watch the bonus features and all the tech stuff. But it was not 'the GREATEST. MOVIE. OF. ALL. TIME.' by any stretch.

Visually stunning film but, essentially, Ferngully on steroids.

I've seen it in the theater (3D) and at home ... enjoyed it both times. I like the movie a lot ... mainly because it was such an aggressive undertaking. Sadly, our IMAX was flooded out so I can't see the new release. I have a feeling, though, that they'll be releasing it several times, so there will be opportunities in future to see it in theaters ... kind of like what they did with Gone With The Wind. Which, as I think of it, also had similar plot elements.

Don't purposely avoid it. It's a good, entertaining movie with out of this world special effects. I mean truly, out of this world. I guarantee you've never seen anything like it, ever.

The story is nothing new but it keeps you interested and engaged and again, the look of the film is just stunning and unbelievable.

If you've got Netflix, grab it or go to Blockbuster and rent it. You may not *love* the film, but it'll definitely be worth a $3.00 dollar rental.
