Avatar The Movie - Page 14

post #196 of 270
I saw this movie with great apprehension, I suffer from serious motion sickness. I was only able to watch the first three minutes of Cloverfield before I became naseous. I saw Avatar on an Imax screen and holy sheep-dip was it awesome!
I had several conversations with my stomache to remain in place, but was ok overall, took awhile to get used to it.
The story was ok, very generic sci-fi fantasy, reminded me of novels I read as a teenager. A lot was predictable, but I was still enthralled. I hope to take my wife to see it on a regular screen so I can compare.
When Sigourney Weaver's character tries to cross over into her avatar, well you know the protagonist is going to do the same, as with the giant red flying beast...you knew he would be flying that sooner than later...
I was glad to see it, although as other posters have commented, the story was rather forgettable and there was a lot of holes in it too!

That movie was nauseating. I didnt get to see the whole thing because my wife got sick. I think the shaky cam trend is coming to an end, thankfully.


When I was watching Avatar I kept thinking of the "Heavy Metal" sci-fi cartoon. I know what you mean about feeling like sci-fi you read when you were young.

That ponytail fiber optic bio link was pretty cool. I went home and tried it with my cat. I don’t have a ponytail fiber optic bio link, so I had to run what my Mama gave me. I plugged myself into my cat from behind. It worked. I could instantly tell my cat was uncomfortable and nervous.

The glasses really made the movie less sucky. I'm glad I saw it. I like the tech. Now all someone has to do is use it to make a movie with less sap in it than the tree of souls. It was an amalgamated mess of themes, which, honestLy, I totally ignored because the glasses made stuff appear in my lap.

I will say it was better than all of the 'man' movies (Spiderman, Ironman, Watchman, etc.), and that was nice. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I had not noticed the poster for IronMan II on the way out, though.

I watched it yesterday, i found it entertaining fir the first hour or so, after that the story turned very predictable, and the shallowness of some characters and dialogues became evident... and annoying ; too much effort has been put into the technical side of the movie, which is amazing , leaving much left to be desired...

I saw it last night, and I must say that I was well-pleased. It was visually stunning, and the predictable story didn't really bother me. Some of the dialogue was pretty painful, but overall it was a good thing.
