Avatar

I heard about those blue creatures called Na'vi and their planet Pandora even before I saw the movie. That's a shocker! It was impossible not to hear about it, 'cause everybody was talking about it and I was sure it would be the next Lord of the Rings (the most epic movie of all times, IMO). I was wrong...


So, what's the story? American army finds something very valuable on someone else's territory and they want to have it (money makes the world go round even in outer space). No, that valuable thing is not oil and this movie isn't placed in Afganistan. That would be ridiculos. I mean, who would be on the Afganistan's side, right? *wink wink*
Think of it like this: (Afganistan) people follow the little fat rabbit, fall into a hole and find themselves in wonderland called planet Pandora. They're blue here and they have modified dogs, horses, rhinocerous and dinosaur birds (cause let's face it... it still a cretaceous period there). *2nd wink wink* Still, I think the Americans are trying to fool us. The scenery looks a lot like Las Vegas when the night comes. Did they build a second Vegas in the jungle? *scratches head*

Anyway. It doesn't matter where the story takes place. We all love those rainbow warriors (?) with funky ear piercings and their abnormal connection with the nature, don't we? Their way of connecting with nature is a bit too literal for me and I wanted to call ASPCA when they assaulted all those innocent horses and birds... But then I realized: it's important to be in connection with yourself. Let's face it. Their connecting ''tool'' is quite far from their body and could easily be chopped of. That means no more connection... wireless maybe... Oh, I strayed.

I don't really care where they got the inspiration for the Na'vi and Pandora. Whether it's Las Vegas, Tarzan, native americans or 300. Cause: ''This is Spartaaaaaaaaaaaa!'' Oh, sorry. I meant to say: ''This is our land!'' And they have the right to fight for it. And rape an animal or two while doing it.

It's all OK. Not really original, but OK. I was more disappointed with their choice of actresses. It seems like nothing can happen in outer space if Sigourney Weaver isn't there. But then again: she is part alien, right? And Michelle Rodriguez. Was that chick born in a military uniform? Geez!

I didn't hate the movie. It's OK. But that's it, nothing more. I think it had a little to many of those flying scenes in it and I'd probably be bored with those scenes even if I saw this movie in 3D.

Three movie clip boards are more than enough, don't you think? :)


Lord of the Rings still rocks my boat. Go, Frodo!

Thanks for looking!

    I haven't seen it yet. I want to let the novelty wear off before I bother.

    Lord of the rings is still the best ever. I have the special edition extended version box set because I'm crazy like that. lol

  2. haven't see it either, didn't appeal to me at all.

  3. Oh you didnt see it in 3D? Trust me, the flying scenes are the best part of the movie when you see it in 3D. I saw it without 3D on tv not long ago, and the movie was nothing compared to the 3D experience. I know the story is kinda lame, so the movie is all about the beauty of the special effects!

  4. If a movie is good, it should be good in either 3D or 2D, whether you see it in the movies or on a small television. If the movie is truly all about special effects...that says it all.

  5. I've never seen Lord of the Rings, and I have no desire to, but I LOVED Avatar. Not sure what the Afghanistan reference is. We're not in *afghanistan* for oil (that would be Iraq, our biggest mistake EVER, even worse than that cluster-fuck that was Vietnam). I think the movie was more about human greed, rather than a specific set of individuals. But hey, I'm *American*, so what do I know

  6. Ah, Lord of the Rings. I was obsessed with LOTR for a long time. I want to watch that now.

    I haven't seen Avatar, I don't know if I will at all. I really don't care about the special effects and it just sounds kind of boring to me.

  7. XD It's an American movie and I guess they know about greed. You can watch the movie and see it as it is. You can see past that or you can have delusions about it. Whatever floats your boat. I found it so boring I had to make an analogy.

  8. P.S. Afganistan is important for it's location. There's a pipeline going through the country. That's where I got my Afganistan reference. But then again. What do I know about war...

  9. I haven't seen Avatar but I basically know every LOTR film script off by heart. It's our favourite family film and we have to watch the extended editions every Christmas when we're all at home.

  10. I'm sorry you didn't like it! :-( However, if you can, I think you should see How to Train Your Dragon. Since you love cats (as do I) I really think you will LOVE this movie with all of your heart! It's seriously heart warming and so darn cute! It's not just a movie for little kids - it's like my new favorite! I promise you won't regret it!!!

  14. Ok, then. But it better be good. XD

  15. Opinions are something you have, not something you believe in. We're all different, that's why we like different stuff and have different opinions.

  16. 3 movie clip boards was generous! This storyline was so unoriginal, I could have written the rest of the movie after seeing the first 5 minutes, all that money! SO SAD!
