Yes, I am disappointed. Sam and Zoe are the heart and soul of Avatar, and at least earned a nomination. Continue reading

Yeah, I would love to see Avatar, it's cast and crew, clean the academy's clock so to speak. It's a shame that no matter how hard Jim Cameron tries to convince people that Avatar is NOT animation it seems to... Continue reading

I believe if it's not broken, don't fix it. I really disliked how the music scores turned out in the star wars prequels because I was so hoping to hear the old favorites. James Horner did a fantastic job on the Avatar score. It should be carried over.
The energy that makes up the living soul requires a physical element in it's creation process. The only hold your soul has on the physical universe is the physical body. When the tie is severed the soul is free to move on. I call it the light, as in the tunnel of light people see in near death experiences. This universe of light co-exist with the physical. it overlaps it, but our physical eyes cannot see it for the most part.
Very well said. I have always believed the soul is born out of the physical body it is created from.While alive, the physical body serves as a vessel for the soul to grow and learn. When the body dies, the indestructible and everlasting energy of the soul carries on in a realm beyond the physical universe.
He is with Eywa, so in essence he is still around.

I didn't like it at first, but it grew on me.

What is the essential and most important message of Avatar. That everything in the universe is miraculous and should be treated with love and care. Continue reading

Avatar is a work of science fiction for entertainment, but its story and characters transcend into the realm of real world opinion on a scale that I have not seen in a major motion picture before. Directors like Roger Moore must be scratching their heads, they makes movies specifically designed to draw forth powerful emotional responses to real world issues. Yet it pales in comparison to the monstrous flak Avatar has generated. Why? To me it seems like every frame of this film is under scrutiny. People are drawing every kind of conclusion imaginable to attack Avatar. I think the answer is in the popularity of the movie. So many people liked Avatar that it created a degree of paranoia to any person or organization that felt criticized by the themes presented in the movie. So much for the old saying that 'truth is stranger then fiction'

Love it, everybody who said Avatar will flop, Cameron has lost his mind, should be sent a copy!

If I had to guess, I would say alot of them are thinking this of James Cameron, "How do you make it look so easy?"
I do not think Avatar is a chick flick. I do think the romance between Jake and Neytiri certainly influences repeat audiences, but both characters are equally to 'blame' for that. Many guys find Neytiri highly attractive, Jim Cameron has a long record of making strong leading female roles that go against the grain of your typical Hollywood actress. Jake on the otherhand wins hearts not with muscle but with a solid good nature. Again, entirely against opposite what an action star should be. Fans see more of themselves in characters like Jake and Neytiri, and they bond to that and to them.

If you enjoyed Avatar in 2D then, yes, you should make a day of it for a 3D viewing. It will make Pandora stand out for you so much more!
I thought Jake and Trudy embodied the highest and most revered traditions of the U.S. marine corps. While many ex-military fought on the side of RDA, I believe most of them were fighting based off lies fed to them by Quaritch, and would have refused to participate if they had known the truth.

It appears James Cameron and his crew did too good a job with capture motion technology, with many outside the fan base thinking the actors were animation. In defense of his actors and the incredible hard work they put in,... Continue reading

I feel real pity for folks like that.To live everyday thinking everything is out to get you and destroy you and corrupt your kids and ruin your god...the stress they must have bottled up inside them could power the sun for eons! One last thing, they claim God is all powerful and all knowing, something I agree with, yet they do not trust God and live without fear in their hearts.

At the Golden Globes James and the cast were wearing the red/yellow ribbons signifying support for Haiti. I don't know any numbers but I am sure James and 20th century fox pitched in.
Yeah, Terminator one and two wouldn't be the same with any other actor.

@ T. Katz I was hoping to touch base with you about a reply you left on a post I made about Na'Vi links. In your reply you said man was'nt against the world in neolithic times. I think your wrong. I think hunter-gatherers struggled everyday for food, and for survival against the elements.
Say timeless stories are timeless. Should film makers never make another love story because its been done before? A story need not be original to be successful, it only needs to be told well.
The only way for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing. People need to act, break up fights like that.
Jesus Christ taught people to love thy enemy. While your other opinions regarding Miles is fair to say from your perspective, Earth is dying etc, Jesus Christ would never attack anyone.
Sorry Katz, but you really pressed my button! Your obviously a fan of the movie Avatar. And you care about your world, that is great. But by implying that mankind should never have grown beyond simple hunter gathers is all but giving up. We define ourselves by our struggle. We are meant to be in this position we are at. We will learn and grow (Avatar being as much a good teacher as everything else positive and noble in our history). Don't quit now.
Oh and the internet your typing on right now to fire off a reply, well its because we did progress past the neolithic period. Again, we did that without a user manual. Stop hating mankind. We have alot of problems, but were not the bottomless pit of evil just because we decided to step out of the cave.
