Avatar was meah.... Current mood: hungry Category: Movies, TV, Celebrities I finally went to see Avatar and all I can say it was meah.
I recommend watching it in the Theaters, just so you're not the only one left out, but I always recommend visually intensive movies to be watched on the big screen.
Q: Waited to long to see it and the over-hype got to me.
A: If the movie would have been as good as people make it out to me, it would exceed expectations and live up to the hype.
Q: The visuals and 3D.
A: I'm sure the visuals were amazing, but I wish I would have watched it in 2D. To separate the foreground images in 3D, they blurred out a lot of the background images, which took away from a lot of the visuals.
A: The characters had no depth. They were all one-dimensional, stereo typical characters. The war mongering general, the insecure male rival, etc.
A: This story has been told a thousand times. Dances with Wolves, Pocahontas, etc.
A: I don't mind Hollywood formula files, old stories can be re-hashed, as long as there is good story telling. I never felt torn between the human need for this mineral and now becoming inlighten to what's going on.
A: I think my story telling comments are the same for writing. I would like to say that Sam Worthington didn't have much to work with, but a good actor can make bad writing work, and he didn't. I never really care about his character or feel sympathy about his disability, his brother passing, etc. The love story is the only thing I think was well developed.
Q: I'm too old or I see movies to much from a Film Critics point of view
A: That might be so in a small part. But I like big, visual, sci-fi movies. I just like good ones. I love the Matrix, the Fellowship of the Ring, X-Men 2, Iron Man, Spiderman, the Harry Potter movies, the Dark Knight and many others from the last decade. But these were good movies, with good stories, good characters and good storytelling, where visual effects were means to telling the story, not a substitute to a good story.
Rating: B (A=Multi-Theater Viewings/Buy Home Video, B=Theater Viewing, C=Rent it, D=Cable TV, F=Don't watch it)
