James Cameron's pet project for 10 or so odd years that, similar to Zepplin's pet project called the 'Hindenburg' might have gotten off, but utterly failed to deliver. The premise is a Dances with wolves like atmosphere, were the Army is now a corporate mercenary force sent out to protect galactic miners from the indigenous aliens that inhabit the mined planet of Pandora. A diplomatic approach is conceived where a chosen few will be mentally connected to living Human-Alien hybrids and take on their bodies, hence the title of Avatar. Once these people are avatars, they will go into the forest and gain the trust of the native Na'vi, tall slender, and blue aliens that need to be relocated so the Company can mine their area for a precious element called Unobtainium. Trouble brews and drama grows, money is spent, and this IS ONE OF THOSE MOVIES YOU CAN ONLY SEE AND ENJOY IN THEATERS.....sadly you can't watch it at home for a dollar and be disappointed.
Jack: " Jane! Did you see Avatar"
Jane: "Yes Jack, I did."
Jack: "didn't you just love that cool 3D and the special effects?
Jane: " Jack, quite frankly, I did not. I thought the entire film was a giant waste of $13.50 and 2 and half hours. James Cameron cannot write for shit, cannot create decent characters, cannot cast properly, and has way to much fuckin' money in his back pocket. How you could like it, you little waste of jizz, is way beyond my comprehension."
Jack: "But, but, the effects..... the 3D.......the sexy blue chick....."

An icon which represents a user in a virtual reality/Internet setting, currently attempted with varying success. The term is adopted from Neal Stephenson; another word used for the same concept is Rudy Rucker's term "tuxedo."
First used from an Internet perspective in 1992 in SNOW CRASH, by Neal Stephenson, in one of those self-fulfilling SF prophecies. Stephenson got the name from the Hindu concept of avatars, which are the personification of various deities or entities.

A 2009 movie by James Cameron that is basically Pocahontas dipped in blue paint and exposed to enough radiation to make them grow 10 feet tall and ride dragon-birds, space llamas, and listen to the "flying jellyfish".
"Hey have you ever seen Pocahontas?"

"oh you mean Avatar, the movie with that giant blue girl who falls in love with a human and worships trees?"

It's James (Titanic) Cameron's Iliad, a fully rendered CGI world with Star Trek geek-level attention to detail (i.e. language) and robustness layered on a halfway decent story of love and existential morality.
Avatar is a movie
