Not Late Late Late Late Late But Still Short Short Short Short Short Short Movie Review: Avatar 4/5

Rated PG-13. Click here to watch the trailer.

Pros:

  • The 3D is breath-taking. The technology is ready for prime time. It’s not something I need every day, but it was effective and did not distract from the movie.
  • I think the CGI is the best I’ve seen.
  • It has Giovanni Ribissi. Score!
  • Blue Cat Aliens are surprisingly sexy.
  • You need to see it.

Cons:

  • Sam Worthington – the main Blue Cat Alien – is not a good actor.
  • If it weren’t for the 3D and amazing CGI, it’s a pretty meh story (it’s basically Dances With Wolves in space).
  • Uses “papyrus” for the title font and its subtitles. Lame. Papyrus is only marginally better than Comic Sans.
  • It’s way too long. 162 minutes.
