Avatar...not that bad
So, ya, it definitely appeals to gamers and those into fantasy, but I really liked it. There were some weird moments. Like when the avatar guy mated with one of the native women (for life, of course), or when James Cameron inserted a bunch of political statements relating to the Iraq war... But if you just let yourself get sucked into the story and can refrain from cynicism the movie is really fun (and pretty, too). Two thumbs.
