This movie is literally so good. U NEED TO WATCH IT, and if u haven't watched it already, WHO R U. Anyways, I watched this movie without eating, going toilet, or even drinking any water. And get this, ITS A THREE HOUR MOVIE. I only drank water once and ate once, and I only went toilet before the movie started aswell. AND GET THIS ALSO, MY WATER BOTTLE WAS RIGHT BESIDE ME THE WHOLE TIME. My eyes were too glued to the screen an I only focused on the movie. So that's mostly why.

Avatar is a gorgeous movie, worth seeing for the landscapes alone... Which are best enjoyed on a large screen, and preferably in 3D. Subsequent viewings on a regular TV or tablet screen, in plain old 2D, reveal on occasion rather glaringly the places where the animators saved a bit of work by skipping details or shading because they thought nobody would be looking at that particular spot. Storywise I like the message but find that it could've been told less derivatively, less overbearingly and with less obvious good&bad sides. Hopefully the sequels will get better in the story department, though I'm very frustrated that Cameron has tied himself into three sequels since those are currently preventing him from making a couple of other planned films I'd much rather see than the continued adventures of the cat-people of Pandora. =/ It's a good movie, but Cameron can do better!

I remember Avatar having the bragging rights of a movie officially designed with modern 3D viewing in mind, an exeptional feat especially considering its release date. However technology advances as time progresses leaving a movie without proper plot line that only focusses on special effects somewhat aged.
