James Cameron's Avatar by ToastersToastToast James Cameron's Avatar by ToastersToastToast
I really hope I'm not the only person on Earth who hates this movie. ^^;

Seriously, Avatar was a big disappointment for me. I think that everyone can unanimously agree that the special effects are nothing short of amazing. But, in my opinion, that's the only good thing about it. The story is just plain stupid. :|

"Let's waste a few billion dollars going to war with an alien race so we can get some rocks that MIGHT get us a few billion dollars! That makes PERFECT sense!" :dummy:
"Let's destroy everything that is sacred to the Na'vi! Why? Because we have to follow the cliche of humans being evil in movies with aliens!" :la:
Plus, we get two overly dramatic death scenes that didn't faze me in the least bit because the characters were never developed or likable. Heck, most characters in this movie aren't. :unimpressed:

I'll betcha if this movie wasn't so graphically amazing, it wouldn't be nearly as popular. Then again, maybe it would be, because then they probably would have actually focused on telling a good story rather than making it look pretty. :hmm:

Respect my opinion and I'll respect yours. :B

(Is probably going to get so much fucking ranting feedback)

I liked the movie, but I agree with you. It didn't have that much story to it, but a lot of filler.

(Braces self)

That movie actually hurt my eyes. Like, physically hurt them. I guess my eyes can't handle all that CGI. :saddummy:

The only likeable character was the main antagonist. The big badass man with the mech who likes to hold his breath before putting his mask on.

To be honest, the only bit I liked about the entire thing were the special effects, not in 3D that barely worked. But we've seen this Story done to death. plus they didn't build on much. "Here is a rare element that is worth trillions! it can possibly get the US out of debt to China!" What too soon? "But we're not going to explain why it is so expensive, we'll just use the excuse of it's alien and therefore it is worth more!"

And the Na'vi were kinda cool, but in the end they were still giant blue alien cat smurfs, and god damn were they "Holier than thou" stating that their way of life was clearly better since they didn't turn their planet into concrete and metal, So... technological advancement is the Devil and Nature is Jesus?

Finally was the anti military idea. How the soldiers were pure evil and all that simply because they were working for a big corporation and they have jobs to follow and families to try and support and how simply because they follow orders they are bad. the moment you saw the jackass out of the entire unit (surprisingly) I immediately thought "Wow. they are giving no attempt at showing us that he might live, he's so big of a asshole that he's going to die."

I'd have issues with inconsistent arrow scenes but they weren't as big. but yeah those are my main issues.

Thanks. sometimes if I put my mind to it I can be really anaylitical. to be honest when I first walked out of the theater, I thought it was pretty good, then I started to think about it more, heard some stuff, checked it out for myself, recalled on events, and I realized it's flaws.

Well, the animals in Avatar do look real, they're just made-up animals. But I agree with you, Jurassic Park had a much better plot.
