Well, I've finally seen the "MOVIE" that has Oscar buzz written all over it. This is another James Cameron blockbuster that has many movie goers spellbound while they eat popcorn, drink large sodas and watched through their 3D glasses.

I must say that I enjoyed watching the actions scenes which were simply fantastic, thrilling and exciting. It was great to see Sigourney Weaver, awesome actress. I also loved how realistic the facial expressions of these 10 foot tall blue creatures were - it drew me into the movie right away. Zoe Saldana (Neytiri) and Sam Worthington (Jake Sully) will now be hot commodities due to their roles as blue creatures, aka Na'vi "savages."

The storyline was very typical - big bad corporation wants to beat up on the less sophisticated people in this case "blue savages" for a commodity (grey rock) which, let me see...hmmm, belongs on their turf. But because the "grey rock" is worth $20M a kilo and the corporation MUST have it, it's time to destroy everything standing in their way. BUT when the tables are turned and Jake Sully takes side fighting as an Avatar - everyone from near and far including the creatures came to battle the corporate tyrant soldiers. The final showdown was a great fight scene!

Two thumbs up!
