Avatar: What say I?

Warning: If you haven't seen Avatar, which I think everyone else in the world has, and don't want to be spoiled don't read this post, because I'll ruin the ending for you!
I know I'm like eight months too late, but I thought that I would share my opinion of the movie Avatar

First of all I know that Libby is going to be mad at me for saying this. She had her heart set on me hating the movie, but I actually really liked it.
I did think that the story was weak and cliche, but I did enjoy the movie. The special effects were awesome! I thought the different plants and animals were very amazing and original. I did have a hard time taking the movie seriously at the beginning, but by the end I was pretty attached to some of the characters. I will say that I'm kind of sad that I didn't get to see it in theaters, I would have loved to see it in 3D. I did love the way it ended. I just have to say that I knew they would win the battle, come on people hate movies that end with the good guys losing. I did see Jake Sully becoming one of the Natives when the Natives tried to save Sigourney Weaver's character. I didn't like that it just ended with him waking up, but I guess they couldn't really add anything else to that. I thought it was so sweet when Neytiri held Jake in his human form, and she still loved him. There always has to be a moment of pure cheesiness in a love story, and sometimes those are the best parts.
Overall I did enjoy the movie. I might even buy it if it were on sale, unless someone wanted to give it to me as a gift...
So eight months after the big hype I did finally watch the masterpiece that is Avatar, and I liked it. So sorry Libby, but I think you knew all along that I would like the movie.

Ethan will be glad you liked it. I still refuse to see it. He got me to go see Toy Story 3 because it had awesome reviews, but I was bored the whole time.
