Editor's NoteALIENS and THE TERMINATOR director James Cameron returns to the genre that made him famous with AVATAR. As an avatar (a human mind housed in an alien body), an ex-Marine finds his inner conflict competes with the far-flung war he must fight. This sci-fi film reunites the director with his ALIENS actress, Sigourney Weaver, and it co-stars Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, and Michelle Rodriguez. Cameron also brings on WETA, the special effects team behind the Lord of the Rings trilogy, in his efforts to create this 3-D film filled with awe-inspiring CGI.

Customer Reviews of Avatar
Love this movie9/12/2012
I loved this movie. I loved every thing about it. Had a great story. It reminded me of 2 movies I had seen before. It feels like a modernized remake of Ferngully-Last Rainforest or even The Pocahontas movie. Most of my friends thought it was more like Pocahontas then fergully but most of the friends have not seen ferngully. I love the aline aspact that is in this movie. Which gives it a more modern feel and makes it different from those other 2 movies.
I got this as soon as I found it available on the net. It will not be available commercially for some time and that, of course, means the price is WAY to high for most viewers. I was willing to be taken for a ride but if you do not just have to have it now I would recommend waiting until it is available everywhere. The video quality is fantastic. I have a Samsung 40" 3D setup and the movie was just beautiful to watch. Not quite the same as IMAX but very close (size of screen being the only difference that I could see). The 3D is, to my eyes, exactly as good as the IMAX on-screen version. I am a huge fan of the movie but believe me I would tell you if the video quality was not great. I would not hesitate to do the purchase again (even considering the huge rip-off in price at this time) but advise others to consider if you really have to have it right now or can wait awhile. Great movie, almost unbelievable video transfer quality, and a price that is just not right! Hope this helps.
