Anyway, this past weekend we rented and watched Avatar. I'm no movie critic, but here's my take on the flick:
- Visually: Pretty realistic looking. However, special effects can do just about anything now.
- Story: Totally predictable, old themes, nothing new. I mean seriously, it was predictable it all the way down to the last frame when the blue dudes eyes opened, and his human body died. No, that is not a 'spoiler'. I didn't ruin if for you if you haven't seen it, because it's so easy to tell that is what's going to happen.
- Epic battle: I thought I was having DejaVu. Not just for the epic battle scenes, but for the ENTIRE movie. I liked the battle the first 10 times I saw it in Narnia, Lord of the Rings, Braveheart, etc, etc.
- Standoff between the hero and his commander (the villian): predictable from the get-go just like the rest of this movie. Come on, if you didn't know that was going to happen, you're dumb.
