I am torn! On the one hand, the world that James Cameron crafted was breathtakingly magnificent. Conversely, the story was utterly insipid. In fact, Avatar would have been better off without a story! Furthermore, it only really has value on the big screen, for I do not see this film having the same effect on the average sized television. Thus, if you are into graphical orgasms, I would urge you to see this 3-D experience in theatres. But, if you want to see an actual movie, this is not for you.

Verdict: Go See It In Theaters

  5. […] Avatar, a movie which taught us that you don’t need to be an actual movie in order to be the highest grossing film of all time, is being released on DVD and Blu-ray on April 22, 2010. The release date may seem familiar because it also happens to be the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. The importance of this? I haven’t the slightest clue, but it’s a neat little fact anyhow. With regards to what goodies you get on the disc, I also have no idea. For all I know it could be footage of a mouse singing show tunes, which actually does sound pretty cool. […]

  6. […] I said in my theatrical review of Avatar, this movie only has value on the big screen, and I was mostly right. I mean, it was pretty, but […]
