***Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people*** (http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/avatar/)
My review: I know. I am probably the last person who watch Avatar. Anyway, it is absolutely one of the best movie I've ever seen. Ok, maybe because of the movie-deprived state I am in (my 1st movie after Shern was born), I may be exaggerating but somehow I simply love this movie.
What makes it even nicer is that I watched it free thanks to GSC Birthday Ticket treat. I find this movie fast-paced and with a good storyline. (I hate movies with no storyline and leave you hanging at the end of it not knowing what the hell you just watched).
Furthermore, this movie does not even need super-famous actors (I don't know who Sam Worthington is. Ok, I guess I'm a noob) and yet it can be so nice.
This movie is out of the ordinary and makes you fantasize of a beautiful world and that there are still nice people out there.
This movie just made me a fan of James Cameron. I love Titanic AND Avatar. :)
