I finally got around to seeing Avatar.
Wow. Talk about a disappointment. I mean, I wasn't expecting all that much, but with all the hype I was expecting more than that. Sure, visually it could be quite stunning at times, but the dialogue was just so awful most of the time that it was almost unbearable. Lines like "You're not in Kansas anymore" were a dime a dozen, and went on for 2 hours and 42 minutes. Ouch.
The "chosen one" saving the oppressed people wasn't all that original either. I also found the casting less than inspired, although the chick chopper pilot was super badass and hot.
I'll give it 2/5 on Netflix.
Is it the worst movie ever, no. It sure isn't a cinematic second coming like it was touted though either.
