I would like to see it again. I was so into it, I wanted to be there on that planet....its kinda sad that im disappointed about not being able to. The way the plants and some animals glowed at night was just crazy awesome.

We saw it as a normal movie and then I took my friend again to see it in 3D last night. Man, the house was PACKED that last time. Which was surprising because I was thinking less people were going to be there because it has already been out a little while.

So wrong!

I love this movie though. I mean, the story line could have been better...he had 10 years to work on it afterall...but it's not that big of a beef. The cg was mindblowing.

Wondering why the Na'Vi were so humanoid...I know WHY they made them humanoid, for audience sympathy and such...but logically, given how everything we saw on that planet had a variation on the six-limb scenario, I was wondering why the Na'Vi only had two arms. And how come there weren't any animals with hair? Considering the blue kittehs had what looked to be hair, I was kinda disappointed to see only reptilian-looking species. But we only got a small glimpse of the planet wildlife. (Leave me alone, I'm a nerd when it comes to creature/enviro concept design).

I also wish there was more of a difference between the tribes...but ah well.

It was lovely. Really digging the bioluminesence and all the insects and sounds and creature design. And it had a few good messages as well. I know some people are griping about the rather obvious moral(s) of the story, but the way I see it, if mainstream public needs a multi-million dollar movie to help get environmental messages across, then so be it.

But overall, it's a great and beautiful movie. The characters were emotive, there was a good deal of progression and the soundtrack is rather nice. Everyone should try to see it in 3D while they can. :)

I am planning to go see this and everyone has said it was good especially CGI but quite a few have said the plot could have been worst. I was talking to a friend of mine and he said he didn't know where the director's train of thought was going but he got off four stops ago.

Absolutely amazing!
I LOOVE it!
Saw it yesterday in 3D on a HUGE screen (not sure if it was IMAX or not. It was 2 times bigger than the screens here in Finland.)
I'm going to go see it again this weekend .

I saw it the other day and WOW. Also saw it in 3D, definitely going to either buy it or go again and see. Special effects were stunning, plot wasn't the best but I coped and reckoned the special effects made up for it.

Wow! I saw Avatar on Friday and it blew my mind! It was incredible. My whole family went and we all loved it. For it being such a long movie it really keep my mind in tune with it and I felt like I was right there on the planet not sitting in a seat in a movie theater.

I can't wait to go see it in 3D!

I saw it a few days ago and loved it. Yeah, I agree that the plot wasn't the best but it was okay. But the movie itself was just so fun to watch, all the wildlife and plants and landscape and everything! I kinda want to go see it again but it costs so much ...

A cool video someone showed me;

Kind of amazing!
