Avatar - A Must-Mast watch

Everyone loves the story of good winning over evil, even the sarcastic smart asses do, ram winning over ravana, pandavas defeating the kauravas, harry potter beats the crap out of Voldemort, Bhuvan and team beat gora's at their own game, so Avatar is a simple story of the age old good winning over evil, so what makes it special? The very very colourful and vibrant visuals, the stunning frames and the very much present Hindi-movie type of surety that hero hi jitega.

James Cameron has done what Valmiki did long long back, he took a simple story, added stunning visuals and made it much lovable. I doubt if Valmiki were to remove the vanar sena(the army of the monkeys), the super powers of Hanuman, the very visually evil 10 heads of ravana, the small stories in the big story, the flying saucer type of vehicles of the Gods, would it be interesting as it is today.

Avatar has all the standard must haves for a good V/s evil story, common forces unite against the evil forces, one face to face good dishoom dishoom between the bad and the good guy, one strong leading lady to support the Good guy, (un)expected help thrown in from super powers to whom ardent prayers have been offered by the common forces and a special prayer from the good guy. Even then it's a must watch, the visuals are that good.

The weekend has begun on a very good note for us, hope you guys have a good weekend too.

Gonna see it in 3 hours. The trailers tell the story, but I fell in love with Pandora. Gonna experience it and see what's all the hype about :)

I have been exploring ways of watching the movie... Need to get some tips on how-to from someone who has a 13 month old :)

I hope it turns out as good as I have now started expecting; else, you will be blamed for the hype!

The visuals were appealing but the storyline was average - didn't have any twists and turns and didn't have me on the edge of my seat.
But it definitely is a movie in touch with the times - human greed leading to Global warming and deforestation..
