Stupid, offensive, boring trash
- Avatar review by PV
Offensive, smug, boring, pseudo-religious, environmentalist, green-wash trash from a director seemingly enthralled by a bizarre snese of American environmental superiority - when in fact the USA is the least environmentally friendly country on earth.
Funny though: I never realised blue people on a distant planet could look like African Americans or have perfect teeth.
Stoopid and offensive - and proof, if any were needed, that money will buy you Oscar nominations.
This movie is the definition of dumb.

Wasn't Expecting to Like it and Didn't
- Avatar review by The Lesser Merlin
The director is reported as saying that Avatar shares themes with The Emerald Forest, Princess Mononoke, and with Dances With Wolves. For shame: they were well thought out and nicely delivered. All this film has is a superficial plot and pastel-coloured CGI. It is heavy-handed and trite. As for the many creatures, when they're not playing cutey-pie, they're just silly.
