Product Description

Amazon.ca

After 12 years of thinking about it (and waiting for movie technology to catch up with his visions), James Cameron followed up his unsinkable Titanic with Avatar, a sci-fi epic meant to trump all previous sci-fi epics. Set in the future on a distant planet, Avatar spins a simple little parable about greedy colonizers (that would be mankind) messing up the lush tribal world of Pandora. A paraplegic Marine named Jake (Sam Worthington) acts through a 9-foot-tall avatar that allows him to roam the planet and pass as one of the Na'vi, the blue-skinned, large-eyed native people who would very much like to live their peaceful lives without the interference of the visitors. Although he's supposed to be gathering intel for the badass general (Stephen Lang) who'd like to lay waste to the planet and its inhabitants, Jake naturally begins to take a liking to the Na'vi, especially the feisty Neytiri (Zoë Saldana, whose entire performance, recorded by Cameron's complicated motion-capture system, exists as a digitally rendered Na'vi). The movie uses state-of-the-art 3D technology to plunge the viewer deep into Cameron's crazy toy box of planetary ecosystems and high-tech machinery. Maybe it's the fact that Cameron seems torn between his two loves--awesome destructive gizmos and flower-power message mongering--that makes Avatar's pursuit of its point ultimately uncertain. That, and the fact that Cameron's dialogue continues to clunk badly. If you're won over by the movie's trippy new world, the characters will be forgivable as broad, useful archetypes rather than standard-issue stereotypes, and you might be able to overlook the unsurprising central plot. (The overextended "take that, Michael Bay" final battle sequences could tax even Cameron enthusiasts, however.) It doesn't measure up to the hype (what could?) yet Avatar frequently hits a giddy delirium all its own. The film itself is our Pandora, a sensation-saturated universe only the movies could create. --Robert Horton

If you're that upset about the seller (Amazon) then please don't right a review and rate the product low. The product itself is great, if the price is wrong move on like 100's of others do. If you want to buy from FutureShop, good on ya. Go there.

4.0 out of 5 stars But will we remember this in 30 years? Feb. 22 2011
Format:Blu-ray
(This is a review of the film itself, not the BluRay)

When a movie blockbuster arrives (what the industry calls an "event") with the kind of hype that "Avatar" has, you want to have a strong reaction. At least I do. You either want to ride the wave of that hype yourself, because somehow it is a bonding experience with the rest of the human race, or you want to separate yourself from the idiots swept up in the hysteria of what is essentially a terrible film. In a way, the worst thing that can happen, is that you see the movie, find it likeable, but walk away with a complete lack of understanding about why people are going nuts for the thing.

So, in a way, my reaction to "Avatar" is disappointing to me. I wanted to love it. Or hate it. Or, at the very least understand why other people would feel those extremes. Actually, my initial reaction to "Avatar" is similar to the way I've felt about other James Cameron films, such as "Aliens", "True Lies", or the "Terminator" films. "Titanic", I place in a different category, because I can understand why it worked so well. A classic story of star-crossed lovers, set against the backdrop of the most famous disaster of all time, seen in a way that only CGI can provide. This doesn't always work (see Pearl Harbor), but I got why Titanic did. Every demographic liked it, and, let's face it, it is an entertaining film. Cameron is a crowd-pleaser, but a pleasant kind. He's not catering to the lowest common denominator (oh yes, I am talking to you, Michael Bay), nor is he pretending to be highbrow. He makes movies that are technically sound, and entertaining. It's not a stretch to compare him to Spielberg (if you discount Spielberg's "serious work").

I won't bother to discuss the plot. It's simple, but that's not necessarily bad.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avatar Collector's Edition March 11 2012
By Dani_S
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is such a great movie. Beautiful on Blu-Ray. Exactly what I was expecting and more.
You get 3 versions of the movie on Disk 1 (have already watched 2 of them!), with additional extras on the other 2 disks.
The quality is fantastic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Avatar --> Sci-Fi Dances with Wolves March 27 2014
By D.Watt
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This movie has an excellent cohesive plot, making the real time length of the movie seems "relatively" short.

The fallen war veteran given the second chance to make something real and tangible of his existence.
There is a smattering of hidden scientific fact (for those who might care...) regarding the true nature of intelligence, family and the interconnected consciousness of the universe.

The computer graphics are outstanding and the whole show is visually spectacular, beginning to end.

Don't want to give anything else away. The five stars make it a "must own" in my books

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Movie March 18 2014
By John S
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
Excellent movie. At first I delayed watching this movie because of all the hype. I eventuality broke down and finally watched it and kicked myself for not watching it sooner. Great story line and the special effects are fantastic! Well worth watching this movie in the Blu-ray edition!
