Showing you two videos from a fans perspective of the James Cameron's Avatar movie world premiere, as well as the trailer which no doubt you have seen. Showing you the stars and guests in their natural settings with exclusive footage.

Are people looking forward to the movie and will it make back the 300million budget or will just about make it?

Looking forward to it, Cameron is a good guy.

Looks asthetically appealing, a bit over-CGI'd maybe.

I think this movie looks terrible. I like James Cameron's movies for the most part but this just looks awful. It's like Roger Rabbit in space.

I expected a little more excitement but I guess maybe the movie is not to everyone's taste, I wonder if this ends up like waterworld or something.

I like James Cameron he always has a good story and special effects in his movies, and since this is 3-d it will have a different 2-d look to it, maybe in 3-d it looks more real.

Many said the same about Titanic. Personally, I think it will be a big hit for JC.

I read a blurb that said the power source they were there to get was Unobtanium....talk about right up our conspiracy alley!!!

Unobtainium is from the film "The Core" it's a mega hard metal of some sort that the scientist created to make a ship to go down to the earths crust.

I think it looks ok.... we'll see i guess.


I'm sure it will be visually stunning... but that's not enough... see R.E's 2012 :shk: :shk:

Was Waterworld a bad movie - - or did Kevin Costner not have enough or the right "strong energy" to pull it off?

My favorite critic loved Avatar. Not because of the plot - which is kind of generic. But because if you sit back and let it take you for a ride - - you will get sucked in.

From someone in the industry, I am torn as to what to say to you all.

From a technical standpoint, this film is going to be the new benchmark for at least the next decade. I'd say over 90% of the film are CG, and the best, most photorealistic CG I've ever seen.

The Na'vi are emotive. Their facial expressions are ultra-realistic, and their eyes are deep and... well, real.

The world Cameron creates is both strangely believable and oh so easy to connect to. I actually felt sad in several mid-film scenes in the film, and I honestly never thought the film would be able to evoke such a response.

From a viewers point of view, the story is so-so. Some plot points are predictable and several of the characters are like something plucked from a 'write a stereotype into your movie' handbook.

Think of the film more as a tech-demo and you'll come out exhilarated. Don't go in expecting the greatest 'hero's journey' story in history, because Star Wars or LOTR still hold that title, but as previously said, the story is good. Not great, but good. And the sheer scale of the cinematography and effects are enough to prop the story up and turn it into a possibly life-changing experience.

I give it 4.5 stars out of 5. I will never look at films the same way again.

Waterworld wasnt so bad, it did lack marketing.

foofstarr: nice review. Camerons Terminator 2 set the standards in the 90s and this will set the standards in the...um...teens.

Waterworld wasn't so bad, just that Costner WAS...(basically, like always, he just plays himself, which isn't all that interesting)...


Unobtainium is from the film "The Core" it's a mega hard metal of some sort that the scientist created to make a ship to go down to the earths crust.


It's also another name for Lazar's elusive element 115 (or Unimpentium....something like that)....

I think Avatar will be a hit, but even if a mega-blockbuster, earning back 300 million is no small chore....only about 30 or so films have EVER done it....

Would Avatar make more money if it was a summer release rather than a winter one?

Will it beat these films for special effects? My answer is maybe because it is revolutionary 3-D so it has an upper hand and it took 300million to make which will of course emotionally blackmail Hollywood of not denying it an Oscar.

Transformers 2
Terminator Salvation
Star Trek
Watchmen - not seen it

This is literally the most visual stunning film i have ever seen.
It blew me away.

The digital 3D and glasses were so much better than i thought it was going to be.


Yes it's a little predictable and yes cheesy in places but this film is a cinema MUST.... you have to see this in 3D and at the cinema.



They even go into the spirituality of the Na'vi and about how every living thing is connected and not just metaphorically. (don't want to say too much)
I really enjoyed it and i wasn't expecting too much.

I was unsure about this film to be honest.

I really like James Cameron films, specfically the two Terminators.

I am hoping it's more easy on the eye than say George Lucas's Star Wars prequels. As much as i like those films they're in no way the best.

As long as it has substance and isn't just empty CGI.

I will probably go and see it.

I hope to go see it this weekend, and in 3D

I refuse too see this, or any movie that cost more then 300 million dollars to make. What a waste of money.

How many homeless people could have been housed/feed?
How many children could have had funds for college?
Poor familes who can't afford the basic things in life, could have used some.

I wish we lived in a perfect world

:shk:

Meh, it was an okay film. The visuals were very stunning but the importance of a story holds more sway than just pure 3d effects. Unfortunetly, the story didn't become enjoyable until about the last fort-five minutes of the film. Not because of the battle scenes, but because of the emotion that entailed. Too many predictable and cheesy parts to the story to fully suck me in. However, the information pertaining to the spiritual aspect of the film caught me. This is because I hold similar beliefs.


This movie is exactly what Dances with Wolves would be like if it had a 300 million budget with aliens. South Park was right. Dances with Smurfs.

The Navi battle calls to the "horses" they ride all the way down to their spiritual beliefs was just too much like the Native Americans.

With that money one village in poverty could be sustained for a few years. And after that? And what about the few millions of other villages?

But with one movie Billions are inspired and it is that inspiration that is not only worth more than money but even conducive of productivity.

Definitely the most stunning CG work I have ever seen, and being a former movie store employee I've seen far too many films in my lifetime. I intentionally paid the film little attention leading up to actually seeing it to leave the critics usual venom out of my opinion about it, and I'm definitely glad I did.

This should definitely be on any High Def shelf in the home theater selection, I'm planning on using it as the test for my system when its all configured, as this on BluRay with surround sound will probably melt faces with the visual overload.
