Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
James Cameron's [Avatar] - Dances With Thundersmurfs
James Cameron's Avatar is out now in theaters. It is a movie about giant blue aliens (with tails!) being oppressed by humans who want a valuable mineral from their world. The blue guys--the Na'vi--are a tribal people who live in harmony with nature.
Our hero is Jake Sully, a paralyzed guy whose mind gets to ride in a Na'vi body grown for his dead twin brother. His job is to help study the aliens.
He meets up with a giant blue alien girl, Neytiri, and pretty soon starts pulling a Kevin Costner in Dances With Wolves.
Some reports have suggested that the movie cost as much as $300 million to make; regardless, it was very expensive. Needless to say, the special effects are nice. So, let's talk about Avatar. I'll add my review below.
