  • I really liked it as well. Best use of 3D by far.

  • Ive been told by everyone I have to go see it.... I should get on that....

  • seriously, as good as the trailers make it seem

    loved it!

    Yes, indeed. But the trailer sucked already. And so does the film I'm afraid. If you're easily excited by flashy visuals go see it. AVATAR really hasn't anything else to offer. It does have horribly designed blue aliens...

    yeah, cuz im simple-minded and easily excited.

    for anyone considering seeing the movie, it has a great story par for the course with james cameron.

    yes the special effects were probably the best of any movie made thus far, but the movie itself is great as well. go with what rebirth and i said. if you think the trailer looks awesome, go see it. if not, well make condescendng comments on this thread

  • Hmm, ya think they used Poser to make the 3d models?

    This girl (girl..maybe Any more screenshots?

  • I haven't seen it but I'm willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. I mean, come on... The Terminator, T2, Aliens... it's not like James Cameron is a dumbass. Those are three of the best scifi movies of all time. The dude knows how to make a movie.

    And I don't see what's wrong with the trailer. No it doesn't look like the greatest story ever told, but it also doesn't look like it comes anywhere near to deserving the inordinate amount of backlash you see all over the internet.

    Anyway, it's got spaceships and big robots fighting giant aliens on a planet with floating islands and... wait, why the hell wouldn't I want to see this movie? Oh yeah, because Internet said it was bad

    and if you didn't mean the neytiri(the girl) in particular here's a few more:

  • The 3D in this movie is a more TRUE 3D... not the anaglyph style red/blue or magenta/green lens 3D. It uses a polarized 3D enhancement, which means you don't get those weird colours in the movie from the lens filters, and you also get a dynamic depth of field, so if you move your head the image shifts (paralaxes) as if it were real life.

    Also, the technology they used to make this movie was epic. Most of it was developed and made specifically for this movie and has set some new cornerstones for future films (like the matrix circular camera thing). They use a special camera with a realtime processor of the 3D models that overlay onto the actor in REALTIME, so as they are being filmed they appear "in character" while in reality they are on a green screen wearing a leotard with balls stuck to their body.

    Personally, I can't wait to go see this film... even if it sucks (which I seriously doubt that it will) I will still respect it for several reasons. Also, the video game takes place before the movie to help understand the whole plot... so go play the game even if you have seen the film already.

  • I saw it yesterday and yes it's awesome. And there's waaaay more than "flashy visuals". I believe Cameron has another hit in his hands (you forgot to name Titanic... while not sci-fi, it was a big big hit).

    Holy crap! That explains how they moved so naturally!

    Also, I was very glad to see the actress that portrays Grace I didn't read or watch anything about the movie before seeing it, and I'm glad I did that.

    The game, though, I heard was pretty repetitive and glitchy

  • lucid,

    thanks for screenshots. But the real girl is better than the neytiri. Nevertheless, yes, Cameron is the master of such movie. Impressive!

    no problem

    and for me personally, I'd much rather have neytiri than the actress who played her

  • Real thing's always better than CGI
