A young man who survives a disaster at sea is hurtled into an epic journey of adventure and discovery. While cast away, he forms an unexpected connection with another survivor: a fearsome Bengal tiger.
When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs, Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand - and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora.Written by

James Cameron based the design of Neytiri's costumes on a taparrabo, a loincloth thing worn by Mayan Indians. See more »
The heavy craft that descends into Pandora has no need for wheels. In orbit, it would weightlessly dock with & undock from the transport ship; and on Pandora, it takes off & lands vertically. However, many large helicopters, including that of the US President, have wheels ; so they can be towed if necessary. See more »

I am sure my comment will be lost in a sea of blue but anyways here goes...
Just attended the Advanced Screening at my local "Event Cinema" BCC in 3D
Now this movies graphics are gorgeous, everything is so real, the 3D just adds to the effect beautifully without distracting you.
From a technical standpoint this movie is amazing, just the detail on the Navi's faces are amazing, they feel more real then their real life counterparts!
Without giving anything away about the story, the plot itself is very solid, very character driven and perfectly executed by Jim, safe to say this is his best original story since "The Terminator" and "Terminator 2" and is definitely one of his best movies, so good it ties with T2 which is my most favorite movie of all time...
So for those of you who have not seen this yet... WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?!
