Sci-Fi Movie Podcast - AvatarThis week on The Sci-Fi Movie Podcast, Ian, Rem and Jonathan discuss “Avatar” from 2009 and directed by James Cameron.

The Positive
We all agreed that Avatar is the most breathtaking 3D theatre experiences we’ve ever had.  This is a huge movie, years in the making, and we credit James Cameron for pushing the visual technology to the limit.

The Negative
As much as we loved the visual effects and the 3D, we were unanimous in criticizing the uninspired and wholly unoriginal story.  How can a movie cost over $400 Million dollars and have such a poor script?  And the characters? Not even one dimensional. Rem found the Director’s cut to be overly long and boring.  It seems more like a vehicle to demonstrate the visual technology than tell a story.  This is a great demo video to show at a Future Shop or Best Buy.

The Verdict
Avatar is best seen with 3D glasses on a big screen. You might enjoy it on a big screen on home, but you still won’t find much story here. Expect more Avatar sequels in the coming years. You’ve been warned.
