  • "not sure the story could have carried it without the amazing effects though"

    Sorta like Star Wars? Or The Matrix? Or most any great sci-fi movie? I guess I don't really understand the criticism.

    • Whilst I enjoyed avatar, I didn't personally rate it as highly as any of the three* star wars films, the first matrix, or what I perceive as other sci-fi classics such as The Cube, Metropolis, Bladerunner, or Sunshine - all of which I would happily go back to the cinema to see.

      My reasoning? I personally found the plot devices a little obvious and the story quite linear. I found the exploration of pandora delightful, the film charming, but felt it lacked some of the depth that would have been needed to make it one of my all time favorites. That said, movies are a personal thing, and one man can get out of friends what another would from spaced.

      * my opinion of the most recent triligy of films sharing the title mentioned is similar to that expressed in south park's excellent critique of the most recent Indiany Jones film.
