What a unique and refreshing movie !! I watched it last night , and it seriously is one of the most original and well done movies i have seen in a very long time !! James Cameron is a genuis !! How he came up with this idea is beyond me , and it took him 13 years to complete this movie !! It cost around 310 Million Dollars.

Kudos !!! Go watch it , you wont regret it !!

I should be seeing it soon.
Seems like a great movie, thankfully it stole the foolish twilight mania.

Man I have been hearing tons of people talk about this movie. They say it is one of the best movies of 2009! I have not been to the cinema in around 2 years now. I consider it a waste of my time which I can spend doing something else, though I will surely check this movie out.

Thanks for the info :)

the technology and look of the movie is unbelievable. The story line is UTTER GARBAGE!!!!!!! a 3yr old could've written a better script.
If I see it again, I'd like it on mute and have my ipod in my ears instead

Saw it on the release date, the script reminded me of Pocahontas :? but definitely a great movie to watch with such direction and graphics even though i had some pain in the ass and eyes for sitting 3 hours with the 3D glasses on

saw it in 3d last weekend, CRAP. I mean it does wow you to a certain extent, the money put into it is plain ridiculous, but yea as bronks said the story line is juvenile.

Warning: you might start seeing blue people as you exit the theater, this is a normal side effect, dont be alarmed.

"I was lucky to see Avatar at a pre-screening a few hours ago. It completely blew me and the whole room away and i dare to say it will do so to 80% of any audience anywhere. The remaining 20%, who always finds something to complain about, will whine about character development, dialog, story or the pop-corn.

Well, let me tell you: they went to this movie with the wrong expectations.

You have most likely met Cameron's previous work(s): Aliens, Terminator 1 & 2, The Abyss, Titanic (!), just to name a few.

So WHAT should you expect from Avatar??? MORE of the same!!! More of revolutionary film-making, more of grandiose new ideas, more of never-before-seen special effects, more of 150 minutes without relapsing, more of the James Cameron genius...

I am very happy that the trailers didn't give the full story away. Lots of emotions are waiting for the viewer, laughter and tears also. Cameron was very smart keeping the teasers as teasers, nothing more... as the full movie will take your breath away.

You will practically not notice that you are watching a non-existing world, it is sooo real. Attention to detail is superb. You computer geeks will know what I am talking about. This move was not rushed in the making. No wonder it could not have been done before - not having the proper computing power.

The wild life, the jungle, the animals, the Na'vi-s, or the dragon-like flying creatures are all so life-like, they almost pop-off the screen (and in 3D they actually do :) .

The sound effects were so well done, that when I saw at the credits that Skywalker Sound was behind it, i could only think of "yessss... now THAT makes sense." Cameron is a visionaire - and again, he delivers, with full blast.

A certain character says in the movie that Pandora (the planet where the story takes place) became his real world. My advice to you: let Pandora become YOUR real world for two and a half hours, let it make you completely forget about your life and problems, let it entertain you, move you, let it carry you away.

Because THAT is what i expect as an exchange for my ticket.

And a few hours ago i got tens of tickets worth of that.

One of the WINS of the movie is the legend Sigourney Weaver, she played her role spot on as always.

My friends have been talking non-stop about this movie. As I've also heard about a corny story line behind the making, but very well transmitted from a Sci-Fi angle. I second Nick though, some people are finally over the Twilight saga trend.

caught the movie yesterday. I have to say that I did have a doubt or two about whether it'd live up to the hype, but it came through big time! It was a pretty wicked movie. I'm actually willing to go watch it again.
