[QUOTE] Also LoL at people who complain about "clichee" in a Hollywood movie land where everything is almost remakes and meaningless sequels -I'm looking at you Saw 6-. I know some of the parts was seeable that its coming . Lol at people who act like this is an excuse to make yet another cliched movie. Just because Hollywood is lacking in originality, doesn't mean that movies that continue this trend of unoriginality should be praised for it. The general complaint about unoriginality in movies always struck me as a bit off. For me, it's not how new the story is but how the story is told and whether it has something to say. Every generation should have its own version of Hamlet. But the relevant question for this thread is does every generation need whatever it is that Avatar is doing? Since I haven't seen the movie I can't say, so I guess I'm just talking to myself at this point. Sorry about that. [/QUOTE] I agree that some stories are good enough to be told over and over again (see: A Christmas Carol), but the fact that it's the [i]execution[/i] of the story that falls flat is what causes me to point out the unoriginality in the first place. Let's face it, there are plenty of times where the same story is told over and over. When it's executed well enough though, fewer people care about the unoriginality. This movie tells the story just like how the story was told before. So much so, that when a character is introduced you can straight up predict what's going to happen from the moment they open their mouths. What I'm saying is, besides graphics, it adds nothing [i]new[/i] to the mix. When a story is executed well, you will likely leave with the feeling that you've seen something new even if you haven't. Avatar, despite its visuals, just left me feeling like I'd seen it all before. Oh, and on the visuals: yes the 3d was pretty. Lots of pretty colors, nice details on the terrain and I liked the designs of the creatures. However, whenever the 3d was mixed with live actors, it became a lot less convincing.
