Film, premiered in 2009 and directed by James Cameron. Despite having a weak (and cliché) plot, the CGI ultimately brings out the best of the movie. Read summaries elsewhere. The soundtrack is awesome, and the tall blue characters unique. Avatar is currently the 2nd highest-grossing film of all time, and might later surpass Titanic, also directed by James Cameron.
Avatar hater / cynic: I hate Avatar, the plot is really overused / cliché, and the blue people are just plain weird. Not to mention ugly...
Avatar lover / optimist: You must admit, the graphics are amazing and the movie has a strong moral. Why else would so many people love it? BTW, Jake Sully is awesome...
Avatar hater / cynic: Touché.

Released in 2009, this sci-fi epic was heralded at the time as a marvel of film making, and even though the story is admittadly average, the special effects and immersion of the 3D more than made up for it. The film was nominated for many awards, including the Best Picture, Best DIrector and technical Oscars. It sweeped all the technical Oscars, but lost to The Hurt Locker in both of the above categories.

It's been about a year, and all the people who said that Avatar was the best movie of all time and that it changed their lives have gone back on their statements, choosing to bash the film's mediocre story. Why is this? Probably because of the deluge of 3D films, like Clash of the Titans and The Last Airbender. However, if you go back and watch the film (3D or not) it's still as entertaining as ever.

Mike: Dude, I just saw Avatar. I swear to God, that movie changed my life!
Jim: I know! the 3D was awesome and the story made me really care about the enviroment!

-Now-
Mike: Yeah, Avatar was awful.

Jim: Yeah, who cares if it was pretty? The story was completely awful!
Me: Hypocrites.

An amazingly well thought out and expensive movie. Throughout the $500 million dollar movie, there are 3D special effects that aren't comparable to any other movie ever made... ever. It is not uncommon to have a completely different outlook on ways humans interact with their surroundings after the movie is over.
"Dude, Avatar was siiick"

"Yeah dude, at one point in the movie, I looked over and my girlfriend was crying because she was so 'moved' by the movie."

The best movie. Amazing graphics and very cool, especially in 3D. Lots of blue creatures. Also more expensive to make than the Titanic movie.
"Dude have you seen Avatar yet?!"
"No man but it looks great!"

a modern, science fiction version of Pocahontas...

...But it's a great movie nontheless!
Person 1: It’s a movie about strangers settling into a “new world”, looking for a rare and valuable mineral. Most settlers don’t care about the well-being of the original inhabitants of the new world and believe they’re all savages. However, one of the settlers, a man, doesn’t agree. He is amazed by the beautiful landscape stretching out in front of him when he arrives and therefore decides to explore it. He meets a beautiful female inhabitant of this world on his way. Even though she mistrusts him at first, they get to know each other better and he finds out that the female inhabitant is a princess (sort of) who’s destined to marry a serious male warrior whom she has no romantic feelings for. She then tells the stranger more about her culture and about how beautiful and important nature is and how it should be respected. They end up falling in love with each other, but the stranger settlers do not agree with their relationship as it will prevent them of accessing to the mineral they came for. The conflict quickly turns into a war between the original inhabitants and the settlers… Guess what movie this is.

Person 2: That’s easy, it’s Pocahontas.

Person 3: No, it’s Avatar!

Person 1: I was thinking about Avatar, but technically, you’re both right!
