TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3144:
Today I'm pleased once again to have as guest blogger, Vinnie, who is writing 'His Take' on the Avatar Film on DVD that we rented this past Saturday night:
[SPOILER ALERT: This whole blog post is a 'Spoiler Alert', but with all the millions of people already seeing it, and talking about it...This is more of a review of the film from a tween's POV.]
AVATAR: 'My Take' On the Film Itself!
The movie is set in the year 2154, on a moon of the planet Polyphemus called Pandora in the Alpha Centauri star system. A company came to this planet to mine a mineral called unobtanium, for it's high value. Pandora's atmosphere, however, is toxic to humans, forcing them to use breathing masks. Pandora is mainly inhabited by a human-like species of blue-skinned, ten-feet-tall creatures, called the Na'vi. They live peacefully with nature, worshipping their goddess, Eywa. The scientists want to learn about the Pandoran people from within, so they create a hybrid of human and Na'vi, which they call avatars, that are controlled by a human through mental link by genetically matching humans.
I like the uniqueness of this movie. It brings many aspects up, that are normally overlooked, such as, the connection between a planet, and the creatures living on it. If one was without the other, the other couldn't survive. Also, the people of the planet need to care for their planet, for if we don't, the planet won't have anything to share with us. I also liked the array of imaginative creatures, like the Toruk, (which is pictured at the top left of this blog), a powerful flying predator that only five Na'vi have tamed, for its design and the creativity to make that animal up. They brought creatures in the movie that we wouldn't see in real life, making it even more so exciting. I enjoyed the vibrant colors that were in everything; plants, animals, just everything. That, I felt made the great movie even better.
This movie is more suited for adults as there is quite a lot of cursing. There is also a lot of violence which isn't suggested for young children. I wouldn't recommend it unless that person was 10+ but suggested at least 13+. A good movie for a family with older-aged children.-------------------------------------------
