Avatar-it lived up to the hype

I am just going to say it: I absolutely loved Avatar. I heard an interview done by Writer and Director James Cameron.and in it he had talked about how he had dreamed of making this movie since his childhood, but wanted to wait until the special effects were in-sync with his vision for the movie. Well, I am so glad that he waited. I found myself lost and enwrapped in the Avatar world. Even after the movie I kept thinking 'how did he come up with this?'

To be honest I didn't know much about the plot before the movie, just knew that there was going to be some blue people in a really crazy new world. That's how I would like you to see it, without really much knowledge before hand. I loved seeing it that way because then I wasn't expecting much or anticipating anything.

Two great and upcoming actors are Sam Worthington(Jake Sully) and Zoe Saldana(Neytiri). I love Worthington in the latest Terminator movie, his buzz head and military like acting came out again in Avatar. Zoe Saldana's voice as Neytiri was absolutely perfect. Neytiri held a goddess like aura and Saldana nailed it.

There are two side notes I feel that I should make:
1. I saw this in 2D and am hoping to see it again in 3D, when I do I will let you know the difference.
2. There is a hint of a political agenda in the plot of this film.

Honestly, one of the best movies I've seen in a while. Don't wait to see this, because everyone will be talking about it.

Top 10 Movie Trailers

I don't think there's anything in this world that gets me jazzed like a movie trailer. Here are the top 10 trailers of 2009 and I must say, I agree with most of them (aside from 2012) and totally agree with number 1. By far that was the best trailer of the year, too bad the movie just couldn't deliver...

Your thoughts? Any movie trailer left off?
