Avatar is one of the best movies i ever seen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I'm still trying to figure out why Roger Dean is not taking legal action against J.C. for ripping off his artwork. Overall, I thought the film was "fair." Pure eye candy . . nothing really more than that.
Sorry but Avatar is the most overrated movie of all time. Sure, it was technically and visually stunning, but that's all that it deserves credit for. The plot was so typical, the acting, so so, and the overall movie, just long, boring, and drawn out.
Avatar deserves technical awards but not much else.
Sweeps? Oh Please.
it's not the top grossing movie of all time for nothing http://bit.ly/WatchAvatarFreeNow
Just because a bunch of geeks see the thing 100 times each, doesn't mean it's any good. It fact, it sucked!
I don't know if sweeping the Saturn Awards is anything to brag about. Oh, and I am gay!
