"Avatar" Movie discussion

gotta say I am kinda disappointed. It's not bad for sure, maybe I just had too high expectation.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

Not sure what to think about it. Could be a big hit or it might just tank. I will wait until closer to release to hear what critics are saying to get idea if I should see in theaters or if I should Netflix it.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

I mean, it looks okay, but this is supposed to be the CGI that shakes the industry?

Sorry, but as has been mentioned, those blue creatures look silly.

I'll wait till I see more, but for now I'm underwhelmed.

re: "Avatar" Movie discussion

This looked rather bad, but I like Cameron so I don't want to knock him too hard. But on first glance, this is not worth my money at a theatre.

I've seen someone say it looks like Alien Vs Ferngully, and having seen the trailer earlier this week.. it's an extremely apt description.

Fern mother ****ing gully, YESSSSS I have been searching for that title for a while now. Good looking out coates.

As for the trailer, some parts look really good, others not so much. It looks like some game.

I thought that the trailer deliberately hid the plot from the viewer. The sfx look amazing but I don't know what to think of the plot.
