Avatar Is Good! I Knew It!!!

December 11, 2009

Alright, I usually don’t do posts like this, but I am just giddy with excitement!  RottenTomatoes finally has a Tomatometer for Avatar, and from the seven reviews so far, the James Cameron feature sounds dazzling and incredible!  The more of this movie I’ve seen, the better it has looked, and it appears that the whole movie is awesome!  Honestly, no great director works on a movie for 16 years and makes something bad!  After some unenthusiastic early buzz from audiences, who claimed the film looked too much like a video game, things were looking bad for Avatar, but if there’s one thing that is going to help this film’s box office, it’s going to be it’s quality, so this is a very good sign.  Look at what some critics are saying, and then tell me if you’re as excited as I am in the comments.

The screen is alive with more action and the soundtrack pops with more robust music than any dozen sci-fi shoot-’em-ups you care to mention.

It’s a world, not to give too much away, that Cameron clearly fully intends to return to and further explore. When he does, our bags are already packed.

Avatar is an overwhelming, immersive spectacle. The state-of-the-art 3D technology draws us in, but it is the vivid weirdness of Cameron’s luridly imagined tropical otherworld that keeps us fascinated.

It’s a 3D movie people will look back on in years to come to comment on how it transformed cinema.
