Well, the world is going gaga
over Avatar, and there is every
reason for it.
Here are 7 good reasons to
watch the movie.
Reason#1:- This is
James Cameron’s first
movie after his epic Titanic!
Well that’s the first
reason/excuse that I can give
for watching this movie. James
Cameron has written scripts
for some of Hollywood’s
best blockbusters, like, Terminator
(I & II.), Aliens, True
Lies, and there have always
been high expectations from
him, more so, after his last
magnum opus – Titanic.
The movie raised the bar for
all the other movies, and
very soon, Hollywood was divided
into two eras, Pre-Titanic
and Post-Titanic. Well, to
say the least Avatar outshines
the Titanic in every technical
Reason#2:- The screenplay!
Cameron’s movies are
known to have real taut screenplays.
This one’s no exception.
161 minutes of non-stop entertainment
from one of the masters in
the art. What else can you
Reason #3:- The story and the concept.
We’ve heard of aliens taking over
humans, and then making them slaves. Well,
Avatar goes a step further. Humans want
to evict aliens from their home, so that
they can mine there. Also, the Gaia concept
described in the movie is akin to viewing
the planet as a single organism that has
receptive properties. Though, the theory
is yet to get scientific ground, it has
been beautifully hypothesized in the movie.
Reason #4:- The cast.
Sam Worthington proves clearly that he is
worth it. Cameron makes him work for the
role and he does it in style. As the physically
challenged Jake Sully and as the Avatar
Jake Sully, there is a world of difference,
which is portrayed in a brilliant manner
on-screen. The subtle change in body language
and intonation clearly demarcate the Avatar
from the Real. Be it Jake Sully, Zoe Saldana,
or Sigourney Weaver, every single character
in the movie, has been well thought out,
and given adequate importance.
Reason #5:- The Background Score.
James Horner does a wonderful job. His music
as well as his silence at certain places
in the movie, makes you aware of his genius.
The scores manage to keep the excitement
ticking throughout the movie, and is definitely
a very big plus.
Reason #6:- The most expensive movie
Well, it’s been the most hyped movie
of the decade, according to me. US$300 million
plus into it. State of the art technology.
Mind blowing action sequences. 3 dimensional
view of the Na’vi World is every nature
Reason #7:- Special effects.
Well, this is the biggest reason why you
should watch this movie. If you thought,
Titanic, Independence Day, Matrix, Lord
of the Rings, Harry Potter, Spider Man,
Pirates of the Caribbean contained the best
special effects, think again! Watch Avatar
and then your opinion would be that Hollywood
movies can now be classified as ‘Pre-Avatar’
and ‘Post-Avatar’. Every frame
of this movie has been carefully crafted
by the master craftsman James Cameron. Cameron
goes the extra mile, and proves that, it
is possible to attain what is thought and
conceived in the visages of the mind, and
can definitely be lauded for it.
Bottom line: - Its’
the ultimate show down between Good and
Evil, told in a crisp format, in style.
Must Watch... Don’t Miss it!!!!
