Avatar Amazement

James Cameron makes a triumphant return to the box office with Avatar. Avatar is the highest-grossing film of all time and it's not a surprise. The film is a futuristic western that showcases the best CG, cinematography, and action that Hollywood has to offer. Although the story is pretty predictable and borrows many elements from Pocahontas, it still manages to keep the audience engrossed in Avatar's spectacular universe. The superlative visuals in this film are absolutely breathtaking. The beautiful creature designs, environments, and action sequences take CG to an entirely new level. James Horner provides a memorable score to accompany this modern masterpiece, but fails to outdo his work on Titanic or Braveheart. Cameron has created a wonderful universe to expand upon in future sequels. Although Avatar is not perfect, it is definitely the best eye candy ever made.

I've been waiting for this

Simply one of the best movies of all time.

Honest Review

This movie is a beautiful film. Its like a very nice painting at the Greatest Art Muesuem in France. However, I want to watch a movie with a creative story and this movie is anything but. If you like visuals, then pay the 15$ and watch it again and again all you want. But if you want to watch a creative movie story wise, look else where
