    So I wasn't going to see Avatar until a good buddy of mine offered to take me because he insisted I had to see it. It was killer and I've seen it 2 times since. I get that its "dances with wolves" in space but I absolutely loved it. What did you think? Favorite part? Also, I only saw the 3D version, was it better than 2D for you guys who saw both versions?

    Also, I heard that Peter Jackson wants to make it into a trilogy, this could just be rumor but does anyone have any further speculation?

    I think that Avatar is getting over-publicized on RJ now. icon_biggrin.gif

    Don't get me wrong. I loved the movie (although not for its storyline but rather its "delivery"). Regarding a potential trilogy, Peter Jackson stated that he'd make two sequels if the movie was a hit at the box office and so far, it's looking pretty good.

    A really good movie. Not that original, and a little predictable. However, if you're a sci-fi geek (like myself) then go watch it. You'll enjoy it.

    Minor quibble: James Cameron directed Avatar, not Peter Jackson.

    I went into Avatar the way I've gone into the last couple of Cameron movies. Expecting to cringe. Though he's directed some of the most entertaining films I can name: Terminator, Terminator 2, and Aliens among them, he's not the best at dialogue, i.e. Titanic. But, like Titanic, Avatar won me over. In fact, I thought it had few cringe-worthy moments. It's not a perfect film. There were a couple of the 3-D effects that made me feel I was in a cheesy amusement park ride, and he could have come up with a better name than Unobtanium. I mean come on, really?!?! That's the best you can do?

    But, despite the criticisms, Cameron knows how to make an entertaining movie. The plot is pretty simple and has been compared to Dances With Wolves, Return of the Jedi, Pocahontas, and many others, but that doesn't really matter. It's an extremely fun ride. As I said in another thread, if you see it in IMAX, make sure you see it in a REAL IMAX screen. AMC (and perhaps other theaters) have license to use the name, but are projecting on far-from-IMAX sized screens. Don't be robbed. If there's a real IMAX theater in your area, see it there. There are websites like imaxnotliemax.com that can help you find the real deal.

    I do plan on seeing it again soon.

    Given it's made over a billion dollars, I'm sure the studio will let him make a sequel. Cameron has said there are other moons in that system, and he already has ideas in mind. Let's hope it doesn't take another ten years for him to come out with the sequel.

    thats probably why i loved it so much, cause it did not disappoint me in any way. Seriously I was wondering all the time if they were gonna kill Jake or his girlfriend or if probably he would have had to return to the ship and never go back to Pandora. I was hoping that the director was not going to fuck up that movie by adding something unexpected, I was hoping to get to the end with a smile on my face and thats exactly what happened.

    Me too. icon_smile.gif I loved it. Sometimes, it's nice to be blown away by visual fireworks, utterly moved by someone's concept of the future, and left with a big fat grin on your face. I give it "best picture" even though Oscar doesn't like sci-fi.

    I loved the movie I relate to that movie a lot. I'm sure a lot of people relate to it.

    My online gay life is my avatar, whilst my human life is a more conversative straight life. icon_sad.gif I need to get my head around that and change it.

    Someone wise said, it's better to live one full life than two half lives.

    You that have no watched it will have to find out which live or lives the protagonist picked. icon_wink.gif

    I thought Avatar was good even though the themes were not too original.

    The only thing I find odd is the way the word Avatar is pronounced...I am so used to the Sanskrit pronunciation :-)

    Proof that Avatar is actually Pocahontas in 3D:

    I thought the special effects were amazing, but the storyline was far from original.

    Amazing...I'm totally stealing that.



    If Peter Jackson did the sequels....I'd consider seeing them.....but as it stands I couldn't sit through it again.
