    9/10 - I like the band. It's also sticks out from the other avatars. Did you pick it out of being a huge fan of the band, or because you think it's artsy?

    not too much sense if you had a normal metabolism. I do eat that many calories, I am on a very strict diet. However, I am 6' and weigh 165 lbs. Don't ask me how, I have never been able to gain weight and I get hungry every two hours. I have never meet anyone who can out eat me. Funny enough, I had a friend who tried to eat as much as me, he gain 20lbs in two months. I moved and he told me he lost all of that weight since he stopped eating as much.

    I spend 800 a month on food and I don't buy very expensive ingredients


    That sounds like a blessing and a curse. You can eat the things I can only eat every couple of months due to the calories. I have to have alot of discipline to not gain weight. I also run 6-7 miles 5-6 days a week. It's all very frustrating. Though it sounds like your food bill for the month is huge.

    I had mine pulled out in the military. It took 2 days before I was able to eat solid foods. Even after 2 days it was still pretty sore.

    I have seen it recently and it still looks great. It did not look as great when I first saw it but that was at a very large screen at the time which was designed for Imax movies.

    Remember that movie was made before we had CGI and many other features that ILM introduced with the ground breaking movie Star Wars for visual effects.

    I also like the flow of the movie and how the movie goes to different scenes.


    Fair enough. I'm not really arguing against the visuals of the movie. In its time it was definitely amazing. The transitioning of the scenes was definitely a turn off to me. I always found it interesting, like with music, two people can listen to the same melody in the song, one person notices the guitar, the other notices the drums.

    Another movie I remember hating was "Because I said so" starring Keaton and Mandy Moore.

    And Eragon.

    Do you think there is some nostalgia that is influencing your opinion of it? I saw it when I was 21(24 now). There's no way the movie is still relevant in the visual age. Are you referring to the artistic aspect of the scenes?

    There are some movies I watched as a kid that don't measure out very well to today's movies, but I still love them!

    ... I am in shock. How on earth can anyone dislike this movie? HOW?!


    It's been a few years since I've seen it. I can't back up my opinion with alot of excerpts from the movie. It was just a bad vague memory. I do remember it feeling extremely mess. I'm sure there was some over arching poetic-creative-abstract-deepness to the movie. I just thought it came across silly. I'm sure when it first came out it was visually impressive. You always came off like a pretty liberal-artsy kinda guy who is into that stuff.

    I really hated Solaris with George Clooney and 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both movies received fairly positive reviews. They just didn't appeal to me.

    I think Az would like Day Sixteen: Loser.


    Day 11 is probably in my top 10. I love that song <3. That entire album is great.

    Have you heard Guilt Machine's album? I love the singers voice.


    I have so many favorite songs, it's hard to just pick a few. Here are some:

    Sonata Arctica - White Pearl Black Ocean


    Dave Matthews - Stay or Leave


    Elvenking - From Blood to Stone



    Imago - Pain of Salvation

    You did for example write this about me:

    "It is definitely my favourite movie of all time"

    When it should be:

    "It is definitely my favourite movie of all time IF I manage to shut down my brain and ignore the cliche storyline ^^"

    There is a fat difference between these 2. The first one is false and the last is true.


    Now you're taking your own comment out of context. You later added
    "Which I managed to do when I first watched it. It was that fucking amazing."
    Pwned yourself. Never seen that one before.

    The quotes do not capture the entire critique of the individuals; however, the quotes weren't taking their impressions out of context. People prelude their critique with a general thesis. You know, their overall impressions.

    I was just commenting that your post wasn't very insightful. Your categories inaccurately described the consensus of the forum. If you still disagree, ask yourself, "Who falls into group #2?".

    You know how everyone says the story is crap yeah? Well the way i see it, is he wrote it about 20 years ago which makes me forgive Cameron a little, because at that time such a story probably would have been sick


    Really? So.. basically... He drafted a story in 1994. Which was apparently the era where complex stories didn't exist. Cameron, by your logic, never once in the last 15 years made any kind of alteration to the script. That theory is where you base the foundation of your opinion? Your life must be fantastic.

    Quote from emilemil1 »

    I normally would, but this movie divides people more than usual.

    But my appeal is basically the first category. Perhaps not exactly like that, but the category is my opinion but really simplified.

    I base those groups on what I have seen so far in this thread.


    If anything, I see very little divide on the movie. I’m such a loser I gathered everyone’s reviews below. Out of the 20 reviews listed in the thread. I only found two extremely unfavorable review by Musica and mephisto who did agree the visuals were “dazzling”, but thought everything else was ridiculous. While the other reviewer, Don, who recommended the movie while heavily criticizing plot holes and character development.

    Looking at your categories here.

    1. I love it. It is amazing. I can easily forget about/ignore the worse parts.
    2. It is ok. The story and lines makes it average. Doesn't really live up to the hype.
    3. It sucks.

    18 of 20 fall into the category of being favorable or extremely favorable.
    2 fall into the category being unfavorable.

    SO based on the statistics of this thread alone, 90% are favorable or extremely favorable. By telling someone the consensus of the thread falls into 3 really simple broad categories, is miscommunicating to them the real consensus on the movie. That's all I meant to say :D It's unfortunate I had to go in loser mode to elaborate.



    Ivaron said – Great movie, I even liked the story.
    Umpa said - Avatar is a testament to how far we have come in the field of visual arts. It is a true masterpiece and deserves a spot next to the Mona Lisa.
    Archie said - withheld my opinion of the movie until I actually watched it. And you know what? This movie was actually really good!
    SithDiablo said - this movie's 3D is lightyears better than previous works
    IceBlade said -This movie was excellent, extremely well put together and I have no criticism for it whatsoever
    ScyberDragon said - I sawthis movie today and all I'm going to say is that everyone should go see this movie
    Mephisto said - So I watched it. This is what the fuss was all about? It was seriously like watching a National Geographic documentary about some alien planet, but with some additives here and there.
    Nyalite said - I'm sure its clear that I really enjoyed this film
    YOU said - It is definitely my favourite movie of all time
    Lestater said - I'd have to agree, the visuals and overall atmosphere it created is what blew me away and is probably what will make this movie memorable which isn't to say that that is a bad thing.
    Musica said - I thought it was a pretty bad movie with only the visuals keeping me interested. They were definitely great although I don't think they were as dazzling as some people seem to think.
    Don_Guillotine said – lots of… stuff. Recommended it but heavily criticized the plot holes and character development.
    Moosh said - My opinion and a lot of other peoples opinion, is that this movie is unlike any movie that I have ever seen.
    Daemaro said - He liked it.
    Dawg said - I saw the movie a few days ago and I liked it
    PhrozenDragon said - Damn. Damn this was good. I enjoyed this movie so much, and left the theater with this wondrous feeling. Because this movie took me to another world and made me believe I was there.
    Junction3 said - As much as I did enjoy the movie and don't really agree with everyone who is/was bashing it, that is true and still is very funny.
    Genesis said - I just saw this in 3D and I honestly don't think it would of been anywhere near as insane without it. It still would of looked visually stunning but 3D is a entire different league. I nearly jizzed my pants
    As for storyline. It was fairly simple, but simple doesn't mean shit. There's a difference.
    ME – I loved it.
    Halfniak said - I saw Avatar this weekend and thought it took 3d modeling to a new level.
    This, along with District 9 was my favourite movies of the last 3 years.

    I recommend that you watch the movie and get a personal opinion. You will probably end up in one of 3 groups.

    1. I love it. It is amazing. I can easily forget about/ignore the worse parts.
    2. It is ok. The story and lines makes it average. Doesn't really live up to the hype.
    3. It sucks.

    I'd say that the third group is pretty rare. The graphics alone is enough to raise it above the "suck" rank.


    I'd say you're pretty far off on your categorizing there. I thought about elaborating on why I feel that, but there's too much wrong with those groups. It would seem awfully dramatic to write a page on it.

    Who recommends a movie for the sake of getting an opinion? Wouldn't you be recommending the movie out of personal appeal?

    Quote from "Halfniak" »
    Someone on facebook mentioned how Avatar is just like Braveheart, only much worse. He said that everyone who paint their faces blue and white deserve to die..

    It shares very little in common with Braveheart. You may need to rethink who you associate yourself with.
