That is so awesome!

It's the little things, (like the hand print) that make the this such a touching film. Too bad some of the critics were too blind to notice!
The [now] famous hand print- So, who noticed that Jake’s five-fingered handprint was painted on Neytiri’s chest before they went to battle with the Sky People? That’s okay, I didn’t see it either : ) The print is over her... Continue reading

I'm glad to see that I'm not the only one who thinks this way!
Is there somewhere to post new threads here? Continue reading

Don't let my online persona fool you. I'm not! Ha ha, J/K
The use of body language/ non-verbal communication in Avatar- I loved the facial expressions/ noises. Body language is 1000 times more powerful than spoken word, and the body language in this movie was phenomenal. When she cried I really felt... Continue reading

You're not the only one my friend.
That's why they called it Pandora. Once Pandora's Box is opened... Continue reading

Well, I was surprised. I was not sure what to expect when I went to go see it for the first time. I was expecting a c- or maybe a c+ movie. It didn't even look that good in the... Continue reading

That is true, and I bet the Wright brothers would agree : ) Now as for that unobtanium…
Oh yeah, when we get there, breathe shallow and try not to p&$$ anyone off!
I like it.
Okay, I have been reading a lot of comments about people feeling bad because they want to live on Pandora but can’t. Don’t feel bad. I’m building a rocket ship in my garage. You’re all invited. BYOB. Continue reading

Eh. Not a big Star Wars fan.
Don't feel bad. I'm trying to build a space ship in my garage right now. I hope duct tape can withstand the rigors of space travel.
There is a website out there to learn to speak Na'vi. If someone can prove to me the existence of Pandora and the Na'vi, (and get me a one-way ticket there), then I will learn the language! For the moment... Continue reading

I wonder if this movie will directly impact the environmentalist movement.
I'm not sure how "Marxist" can be used to describe this movie. The Na'vi live in clans that are apparently led by a tribal and spiritual leader. Lat time I checked, that’s not Marxism. This is like labeling Aboriginal Australians as communists. The term just does not apply. Anyone agree? Disagree?

You know, the older I get, the more I agree with you. I am not a tree hugger in any way, shape or form. But over the last year or so, my wife and I have talked about what a shame it is that we can't just leave the woods alone. There is always some developer waiting to turn perfectly good trees into a parking lot. I really admire Pandora and the Na'vi. Too bad they are not real : (
It is a very sad movie. The Na'vi have too much to cry about! I do get your point, though. This movie is full of life lessons.
If I had to buy a new TV and 3D DVD player just to watch Avatar in 3D at home, I would. The movie is that good!

I hope so! I will be first in line to see it!
Yes, 100 plots. That makes sense. How many times can you tell a love story, right? But as a love story, Avatar takes us out of our comfort zone. Love between Jake and Neytiri should have impossible... the first time I saw it I thought to myself "this can never work... they can’t even breathe the same air." But it did... When the movie ended, I was genuinely touched.
