Avatar soundtrack's so like that track from the end of the Island, it's beautifully haunting. I thought movie was okay, raises ethical issues of growing whole child-humans to amplify our existence.

Thanks for posting, good interview. James Cameron is the perfect fusion of artist /scientist. Looking forward to Discovery's Pandora documentary :-)

Really pleased the OSCARS disallowed Sacha Baron Cohen's attempt to 'amuse'.

On a final note, I've really enjoyed Kathryn Bigelow movies, Point Break and especially Strange Days. I'd have more respect for her if she would tackle a very scandalous story emerging from the catastrophic Iraq War (for civilians), that of the hideously deformed children of Fallujah. Item so horrendous does not even make it as a news item. "... level of birth defects in this city had reached such a scale that officials were now warning women not to have children at all. Simpson visited hospitals and clinics, met doctors, parents and children and viewed photographs of horrible deformities including a baby born with three heads. The hospital saw three new cases each day. The significance for the United States was the explanation given by all those he spoke to: the cluster of birth defects must be the result of the high tech munitions used by the Americans during the battle of Fallujah in 2004."

While Hurt Locker was indeed a very good film, what was its message? That some people are wedded to war and would prefer to leave their young family to go wage battle, putting their own lives at risk? Avatar's message, leave aside its technical, innovative movie-making, and cine-spectacle awesomeness, is positive, and feel-good. Would movie-directors prefer Oscars or their film being an historic money-making roller-coaster ride that sends movie-goers back to see their movie at the cinema time and time again? I certainly would not see The Hurt Locker again, only saw it on DVD anyway, would not pay to see it at the cinema, whereas AVATAR, I will see again and again, paying more to see it at an IMAX.
Hope you enjoyed the exam, as much as anyone can enjoy exams!

Good morning chaps, been thinking about last night's BAFTAS 6-2 surprise score to Hurt Locker and that it, not AVATAR won the 'big' awards' that looked a dead-cert for Cameron's epic, Cinematography, Editing, Sound and Best Film. I'm reminded of... Continue reading

Too right Safire, it's really pumped positivity in that one feels anything is accomplishable! And with that, I shall retire to watch PREDATOR on TV - Carl Weathers' character has just uttered "I see you" into the jungle! :-) Bidding all the lovely AVATAR fans on here a lovely rest of your morning/day/evening :-) Till the OSCARS .......................

I'm going to get someone to buy all versions for me, and a 3D TV and a blu-ray player, and now I will drift out of this wish-list dream world!! :-)

Politics underlies everything, absolutely everything, even James Cameron's AVATAR, but it's message is wholesome, and a lot of people didn't appreciate it, thinking it anti-American, anti-West capitalism.
Even ' THE LOVELY BONES' was more deserving, as was 'PRECIOUS' than HURT LOCKER. Truly hope the OSCARS will not repeat this debacle.
