Avatar was amazing! I promise go watch it. It's unlike the normal sci-fi movie, instead it incorporates fantastical elements, a great message/theme and a sweet love. Truly it was magical and the creatures and animals will shock and amaze you. As will the realistic animation. This $500 million movie was directed by the same man responsible for Alien, Terminator 2, and the oh so memorable Titanic. This movie put a unique spin on the usual sci-fi story and it worked out immensely. Trust me, I'm not much of a sci-fi fan. Fans of fantasy will definitely love it. This is an example of great writing. :]
I urge you all to watch it!
