I will not discount your claim but i will dare you to find an original thought in all of humanity in the past 10 years.

Kanye West.

Seriously.

I mean, he looks ridiculous, but you can't possibly call his weird-ass glasses or his weird-ass shaved head unoriginal.

Also, Lady Gaga. That is all.

Yeah the Last Airbender looks really good too.
+1 to "it's worth seeing in 3D". It was filmed as a 3D movie from the beginning, rather than having it pasted in after filming. And it shows.

The depth perception is fluid and continuous, without feeling like "3D for 3D's sake". There was one scene where I flinched, but it was perfectly appropriate to the scene. And it was the only "comin' at ya!" that I remember. There were some other things that seemed closer than the screen, but they weren't for the sake of "in your FACE!", and I felt they enhanced the scenes they were in.

The story is indeed obvious and predictable, as mentioned. But that doesn't make it any less of an enjoyable story. And they did occasionally do something different from what I expected. It is "primitives" vs "civilized", but I wouldn't go so far as to call it "Pocahontas". I think those who do have not actually seen it.

I strongly urge you to see it once on the large screen, in 3D. (I saw it flat screen, not Imax, so I can't comment on the difference there.)

(Also, I usually get a splitting headache from 3D movies. While I did get one from Avatar, it was barely worth an aspirin. Not the pseudo-migraine 3D normally gives me.)

See it at least once on the big screen. It's worth it.

Maybe they will make enough money off the first movie so that the next one they make they will be able to afford a decent script AND the special effects, instead of just the special effects.

Thank you very much and yes this is my Na'vi avatar =) . It took quite a few hours to get her the way she is.

If that's our final frontier of creativity I prefer recycling.
