I think I can explain what I didn't like about Avatar enough without spoiling anything.
I liked the protagonist (mostly) and I liked the graphics.
But I feel like this is James Cameron's "I just watched an anime and now I'm going to make a movie!"
I cringed with apprehension in the first 5 minutes, and the loosened up over the next 30. By the end I was shuddering repeatedly with James Cameron's self-righteousness.
This movie could also be titled, OMG GEORGE BUSH IS SO EVIL! I WILL SPEND $300,000,000 TO EXPLAIN WHY!!
There could be a lot of interesting discussion on bodies in this movie, and obviously race. I look forward to the response of fandom.
I recommend the write-up by Nick Mamatas, although it spoils everything if you're concerned about things like that.
Overall: It was not as squicky as I thought it would be, but I was underwhelmed/annoyed by the heavy-handedness and refusal to go a lot deeper.4:29 PM
