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 aspect.

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 ask for?

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 ever made.
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 lover’s delight.

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!!!!
