I won't be seeing Avatar in theatures but I will rent it once it comes out. The film doesn't look like It'd be up my alley, but because Cameron is directing it, I will check it out.
Creature do yourself a favor and go see it on the big screen. The effects are well worth it but the storyline is absolute garbage. Once it's released on dvd and doesn't have all of the cool 3D support it is going to suck hardcore.
Cameron is a tremendous visionary with incredible attention to details when it comes to the visuals but his scripts are worse than garbage. If he took his script and let someone with a bit of talent for writing go over it Avatar could have been great. The problem is that the only refreshing and new thing that it brings to the table are the visuals.
The story is as unoriginal and clichÃ© riddled as they come. The character development and acting are mediocre at best. Really the whole story is nothing more than an excuse for him to show off his beloved effects and it's very obvious. For heavens sake the mineral that the big bad humans are after is called Unobtainium... a 6 year old could have named it better.
Overall it's not as horrible as I make it out to be but to enjoy it on any level you really have to see it in theaters with all of the 3D effects in their glory.
