    At times it made me think I was watching a remake of "Dances With Wolves" and at others Disney's Pocahontas. There was one scene that had "Colors of the Wind" started playing I would not have been surprised as I was hearing it in my head at the time anyway.So it wasn't a new...

    I Liked It

    I'm a sucker for a good sci-fi flick, especially one that has a good story to it. A lot of the movie had a good message about destroying nature for the sake of progress.

    Just The Effects

    Avatar is the beginning of the new era of 3D movies, and for that I respect it. It doesn't have the story line of a classic, but it has some components. It is groundbreaking. I have never seen 3D like it, the effects were amazing and mind blowing. It wasn't all it was hyped up...

    ...and Loved It!

    I loved the spirituality of the natives! It reminded me of how the Native Americans had their land taken from them. I almost cried in a few scenes and was on the edge of my seat in others.

    Well ? Yes It Was Very Good

    I have turned into a critic . It was well done  everything but I still looked at it as a cartoon but I love my cartoons. I saw facial expressions and heard screaming and love making but unable to feel the emotion that I feel from actors. Mind you I had to sit on the very...

    Pleasantly Surprised

    I went to see this movie with mixed expectations.  I never doubted that as a James Cameron flm that it would look less han perfect, but I wasn't sure how wll the story would be handled.  It isn't a new story; one group invade an area and kill off the local population in...

    Like Entering A Dream

    Much better than I expected!  My nephew really wanted to see it, and I expected it to be about being an avatar in a video game. Instead, it was about avatars entering a magical world on another planet. I loved the species and their values. We saw it in 3D, which I recommend...

    1 Billion Dollars.

    My boyfriend and I saw it in the Loews on 34th Street, in 3D of course.  It was amazing.  I wanted to cry at a few parts.  People were giggling and going "ooooo" at this one particular scene...if you saw the movie you could probably guess what part I'm talking...

    So I watched this movie again, actually this was the third time. I still got the Dances with Wolves meets Disney's Pocahantus feeling and the visuals were still every bit as stunning but this time it did provoke a different thought as well. Actually it is more of a question than...
