Avatar (movie): Your thoughts…



  • The plot was bland at best. The effects were different, but not benificial to the movie in my opinion. I wasn’t impressed. Plus, I disliked the overt political undertones and extensive talk of their religion.

    The other thing that annoyed me was their technology. You can accomplish interdimensional space flight but you don’t have decent long-range weapons?!?!? (In the final fight they tried to destroy the tree by dropping a bomb on it out of an airplane. Even today we have missiles and surgical strikes that could have saved them a lot of trouble)

    I made the same point, but someone reminded that the humans in the film were the armed detachment of a mining company (albeit well equiped) not the military.  Even the big bomb at the end was improvised from mining explosives.

    So… how do people feel about this film? I am curious.

    It was about as pleasant as a fight between a Democrat and Republican.

    True. I forgot about that. Still, though, that far in the future, I’d think that equipment that almost any organization can acquire to day would be availible to such a large mining operation as that.

    Yeah I’ll say those guys are pretty DAMN well equipped for being miners… I never really thought about the long range weapons bit… But I guess, if they had them, there wouldn’t be much of a story.

    You know what ruined that movie for me? I’ll tell ya…

    When the main character first ran outside in his avatar and saw the other avatars playing basketball in street clothes. From that moment I could not get the image of the “all-star monstars” from Space Jam out of my mind.  :x
