Will “Avatar” Rock You?

Cameron's Avatar— It’s been called, rather unkindly and dismissively, “a movie for furries.”  I don’t think that James Cameron’s Avatar is going to be that, but there may be furry elements in it, specifically ten-foot blue humanoids called Na’vi who are striped like tigers.

Avatar is, first and foremost, a sci-fi movie written by James Cameron, the visionary behind such cinematic gems as Terminator and Aliens. I like his stuff; if you don’t like sci-fi, there’s always Cameron’s Titanic. Even if you don’t like the subject matter, Avatar promises to be the most ambitious 3D movie experience to date.  Cameron supposedly conceptualized the movie 15 years ago but basically had to wait until technology could match his vision.  Avatar is described as a movie revolution that will push technical effects to the limits while delivering  kick-ass action and a solid  storyline.-And BTW, the incomparable Sigourney Weaver will appear in Avatar.–Alright, I’m sold!

The story of Avatar follows a future battle between Earth and an alien moon called “Pandora,” a terrifyingly beautiful world full of rich minerals and strange creatures.  “Avatars” as in the movie’s title are human-Na’vi hybrids controlled by human drivers who project their consciousness into the Avatar bodies, since ordinary humans find the environment on Pandora toxic.

Would I be my avatar?–Yes, in a heartbeat…and Avatar opens in December 2009… advance trailers may be seen…watch for 3D televisions to be introduced in the not-too-distant future, BTW…now I want my flying car!

    I thought it was going to be a big-budget version of the Cartoon Network series about the last Airbender?

      As I understand, this has blended live action components as well as computer generated effects, and transcends the cartoon.

    Eh! I’d rather see a live-action/CGI version of the videogame STARFOX. Just to see whether it resembles the anthropomorphic vulpine of the same name, or the Marvel Comics character. 😉

    Btw: if you did get a flying car, you’d have to call it “the Batmobile,” because then you’d be…a flying fox!!!
