Review of Avatar (Jim Cameron Movie - Revised Once)

I saw Avatar Friday.  And again yesterday.  This is one of those rare films that you'll want to see more than once. My friends here are probably very familiar with my complaints about many of our TV and cinema choices that opt for formula over story, or they put up mindless fodder based on little more than special effects. 

Well, Avatar has a story that pulls you in and keeps you there.  That's not to say that I don't have some minor complaints here and there, but they're hardly noticeable in the breadth of the film.  It's also a longer film (160 minutes) that gives time to actually present the story - and it flies by before you know it.  It's a solid, thoroughly enjoyable experience that I strongly recommend.  I honestly can't remember the last film I enjoyed so thoroughly.  The closest I can come is Star Wars when I saw it as a child in 1977.  (That now seems amateurish by comparison).

My grade on this film should come as no surprise:  On a scale of 1-10, I give it an 8 a 9.9999.  (After all, nothing is perfect).

Just one final statement:  GO SEE AVATAR.
