Because I live halfway around the world, it took me a while to watch it and I finally did. I won’t elaborate much because a lot has been talked about ‘Avatar’ and there is like 4 reviews in here. I didn’t even want to do a review but the movie is so amazing that I had to.
So, I’m a douche and I never got around watching ‘Dances With The Wolves’ or ‘Pocahontas’. And that is why I don’t know what all the buzz is about Avatar being similar to them. Yes, I thought the story was sometimes predictable but who the fuck cares when the other things are SO good.
I don’t think I have to say this ‘cause everyone knows how awesome the visuals and actions were. The last battle was epic, I don’t remember when was the last time I had chills (of this amount).
Stephen Lang, Signourey Weaver and Sam Worthington were great. I don’t think that needs to be mentioned. But I wondered why the other 3 supporting actors weren’t mentioned. I mean, I loved Giovanni Ribisi, Joel Moore and Michelle Rodriguez, I really did. I always thought Ribisi was a pussy but in Avatar he took his pussiness to a whole new level (this is a compliment). The coward villain he played was awesome. I love Joel Moore since I saw Hatchet; the guy has got comedic skills. And I jumped up from my seat when THAT happened to Michelle Rodriguez’s character and maybe a drop or two tears came out. The emotions were so greatly delivered by the actors and I found myself caring for each of them. And for fuck’s sake Cameron, why would you do that Weaver.
So overall, Avatar is my second favorite movie of 2009(Inglorious Basterds being the first). I will be watching The Hurt Locker in a week. Ignore all the political, racial and religious shit and get your ass up to watch it if you haven’t already did 10 times.
