Thanks for that Optimus! It's a good read. There are many bits that, as a big fan of DwW, irk me, which just come off very recycled. I guess once seeing the bigger picture that can change though. Shame about missing out on the 3D.

Variety:
http://www.variety.com/review/VE1117...goryid=31&cs=1

"The King of the World sets his sights on creating another world entirely in "Avatar," and it's very much a place worth visiting. The most expensive and technically ambitious film ever made, James Cameron's long-gestating epic pitting Earthly despoilers against a forest-dwelling alien race delivers unique spectacle, breathtaking sights, narrative excitement and an overarching anti-imperialist, back-to-nature theme that will play very well around the world, and yet is rather ironic coming from such a technology-driven picture. Twelve years after "Titanic," which still stands as the all-time B.O. champ, Cameron delivers again with a film of universal appeal that just about everyone who ever goes to the movies will need to see."

That Empire review is written by a moron? What kind of mouth-breather equates Michael Bay and Roland Emmerich with Lars Von Trier? Someone who hasn't seen a Lars Von Trier movie perhaps?

Hollywood Reporter:
But let's cut to the chase: A fully believable, flesh-and-blood (albeit not human flesh and blood) romance is the beating heart of "Avatar." Cameron has never made a movie just to show off visual pyrotechnics: Every bit of technology in "Avatar" serves the greater purpose of a deeply felt love story

Cameron wrote and directed Terminator and Titanic. Anyone who says they don't like his films, doesn't like movies.

I think this will have a lot of legs overseas because it is basically "America as Villain" a lot of the world can relate to because of our skewed priorities the last eight years. Then again, maybe people won't make that conscious connection...
