I don’t see many English movies, or at least did not use to, until a few months back. So I do not think I am good enough to write a movie review for a normal English movie, let alone Avatar. The Avatar.
First thing, I loved the movie. I loved the effects, and even with those strange glasses, I loved the whole experience.
But, I do not think Avatar is one of the best movies ever made, and most probably, future will have things more in favor of the sentence.
I somewhere read Ram Gopal Varma said that there will be two eras. Pre-Avatar, and Post-Avatar. And I completely agree with his view. Avatar is a wonderful watch. In fact, talking of the 3D effects and visuals, I would say wonderful is a very small word. Once made, Avatar is going to make others follow. It IS going to set standards, but in the end, it will end up being just a beginner of great visuals and new-age 3D effects, because the script and screenplay of Avatar is not as great as many, many other Hollywood movies.
So my guess is, while Avatar will be a beginning of many good things, there should be, would be, many films in the future where you will be getting the same standard of visuals as Avatar and a better story, better script, better screenplay, and overall a much better film.
Still, at the same time I would like to say that even though there will be films, Avatar deserves the credit for setting new, revolutionary standards of visuals. And even if Avatar gets a few Oscars for that, they’d be completely deserved.
As a last thing, I would like to recommend the movie to all who haven’t seen it, to watch the movie in a 3D cinema hall, or at least a 3D show. Because it’s not many times you get to see the start of a new era. Even if it’s only of movie visuals.
