Honestly if you're keeping me in a cinema hall for over two hours than at least keep me entertained. Even Return of the king which was a good movie for 3/4 just kept going and would put me off repeat viewings. The thing is avatar isn't good at all. I don't care for cgi that much. I am more impressed with stuff like puppetry, set pieces and pyrotechnics. Avatar didn't look so stunning seeing as it didn't look very alien at all. I was expecting Han Solo to land down in the millenium falcon whilst Chewbacka ripped a navi's arms off. No wait that actually sounds way too entertaining so it can't be in avatar. But really pandora feels like its two parsecs of tatooine if you catch my interstellar drift. The main goal of the expedition is to hunt unobtanium which to me must somehow increase brain activity seeing as everyone in this movie is rock-stupid. Avatar has a simple plot with boring one note characters. The awesome navi characters that are ever shown are just stereotypes. Chief's daughter (check), peace seeking chief (check), shaman (check), next in line best warrior betrothed to princess (check). Jake Sully was going to ally himself with the navi fall in love and permanently become one of them (gasp). Don't tell me he becomes the leader or something. Great the return of the white man's fantasy, it is his burden after all. Col Quatrich is the only character done well as he feels commanding instead of being pushed around by the idiotic plot. Instead of sympathising for the navi i get to see this stubborn Col Clint Eastwood do the most superhuman things to this arrogant race. A race that believes they are superior to a those that can level their civilisation from orbit. Col Quatrich for president in 2xxx. This movie makes me lose faith in humanity. Seriously kids will love this because they don't know any better but adults, you should definetly know better. A film like this doesn't have a place in the modern times. It is so backwards that it makes 80s action movies look positively utopian. James Cameron's ego troll. Save the planet by dumping on it.
