Movie: Avatar (2009) Today was my first time rewatching this since it came out in theaters: ten years ago. I remember being a kid in the movie theatre and being absolutely enthralled by the groundbreaking visuals and moving story. And then I forgot about it. I didn’t give it much thought until a few years ago when James Cameron announced four sequels being officially in the works. So, since the long awaited second chapter of Avatar will be coming out next year, I decided to rewatch it. And I do not regret it. The visual effects still hold up to this day and are still revolutionary. I stared in awe at the screen as Na’vi culture was being presented to me. Pandora’s lush environments and wildlife left me speechless as I watched the characters interacted with it. Now, visuals of the side, does the rest of the movie hold up? Do the characters, story, and dialogue remain intact? For the most part. Dialogue was never Cameron’s strong suit, and a lot of it is cheesy. Most of the story is very predictable, familiar, and it takes from movies like Dances With Wolves and Pocahontas. Every one of the characters besides the protagonists aren’t developed that much and are hollow stereotypes such as the nerdy side kick or the evil business man. Nevertheless, it did not take away from my enjoyment or appreciation of the movie. Movies like the original Star Wars follow the same tropes and they are still in high regard and considered masterpieces. So just because you can see everything coming and the dialogue is 80s action movie-esque, Avatar is a cinematic masterpiece. James Cameron’s science fiction epic paved the way for visual effects in film, and it even got an Academy Award for it. It tells a touching message that is very relevant to our current era, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Grade: A+ #avatar #avatarmovie #moviereview #super8reviews
