Oel ngati kameie!
Food for thought- You could try Lucid Dreaming. Play the avatar music while you sleep, specific songs that put you at ease, and picture who you are, and where while you're laying in bed. If you get it right, you'll slip right into Pandora as if you were a part of everything.
And because it's really f'ing cool.
I could see a Na'vi bartering system working
Perhaps if the MMO wasn't quest and "experience" based in the traditional sense. I had a few thoughts on how things might work for the Na'vi in terms of the ever difficult form of currency in various MMO games. Rather than having a traditional "gold" or "Credit" system, the Na'vi could perhaps be able to acquire new things by performing various "feats of strength" more or less. A way to prove your worth. For the Na'vi, questing in a basic sense would be necessary, but at the same time, it'd be a chance to more fully explore the way of life, and Pandora itself.
In the last shot of Avatar, Jake woke up... I just got back from my fourth treatment of Avatar, and I noticed something interesting. The book that Jake was holding before Selfridge told he and Grace that they had an... Continue reading

As I've mentioned before. Avatar isn't a movie. It's an experience. You can't go see Avatar and cliche everything out of the movie and write it off as another cheap knock-off of some other movie with no originality, which is a lot of what Hollywood's doing. It's pretty much bad sequels and movies based off books, apocalypse, etc etc. Avatar's a massive switch because it contains originality unseen in at least a decade, if not more.

On the note of "Curing insanity" I figured the Tsahik was talking about his desire to learn about the Na'vi. But of course, Jake had balls and didn't give up. It's one of the things that made his random Marine-ish comments whenever he was doing something that risked death intensely amusing.
You know, I was thinking the exact same thing. I can almost visualize the design too... I think I smell a new project coming up.

I'll give the Avatar game a 7, even if you can't choose the difficulty level. I found it a pretty good resource for reference material from the movie.
Ehh... Just my opinion, Avatar is better than all 6 of the Star Wars movies just by itself. Lucas has -nothing- on Avatar's depth and emotion, whereas Lucas was pretty much all about government, money, and blowing s*** up. Continue reading

To those of you that keep saying that you want to be an avatar pilot, just don't do what I did and completely zone out at work. I've seen the movie 5 times now and I can almost smell and... Continue reading

@Avax Cameron inserted an extra hour into Aliens for his Directors cut, who's to say Fox won't let him do the same for Avatar?
Definitely epic win. That'd make a really sweet DVD cover

I think Cameron finally ousted George Lucas' Star Wars, bar none. Way to go cast and crew, and most of all, Cameron! Continue reading

This is why Directors Cuts are awesome. 4 and a half hours of Avatar? I'd buy a blu-ray player for that... And then some.
I'll stick to being a thinker. Getting out and doing something never really got me anywhere so I'll just leave my deep thoughts to do the work. Oh yeah, one more thing. This planet -was- beautiful. Once. We're too destructive to bring it back in 2 generations, if ever.
I still think it's funny that the only Avatar that's definitively belongs to anyone is Grace. Her Na'vi look reminds me of when she did Alien Resurrection. It's actually kinda funny how "Ripley" still kinda follows her.

I just wanna see what didn't make it in the film. Cameron had -better- do a "Directors Cut," minus the '20 miles of bad road," as he put it for Aliens. Continue reading
