I got most of that stuff, but 1) she's dead, and 2) they undercut his devotion. I understand that he ended up liberated, but... I dunno. Only the flashback hit home for me!
I actually fell asleep during The Fountain. I remember not liking it, actually. Maybe I'll give it another attempt.

Eh, the end part is the coolest, but it's certainly not for everyone. Probably my favorite movie of the '00s though.

Probably either something Kaufman, P.T. Anderson or Mulholland Drive.

It's not an easy subject to bring up. That and about 70 people saw it I think.

I don't have a favorite one, there's a bunch of movies I've enjoyed, this one wasn't among them.

Finally saw it. The 3D stuff was unique and more of a bonus - I can take it or leave it, the story recycled from Dances With Wolves and The Last Samurai. BUT, it was without a doubt, one of the greatest films I've ever seen. I never once felt I was watching a CG film, it looked that realistic to me. But more so, the facial expressions pretty much sold it... when the giant tree came down and they're all screaming and crying, how could you not get choked up!?

I can't wait until the Blu-Ray release, so I can catch all the little stuff I probably missed the first time. Besides, eye-candy like that has infinite replay value.

Eh, it's not that bad but it's one of James Cameron's worst films. "Bbbbut it looks amazing." Give a guy $300 million and just about anyone can make a great looking movie. Transformers with a healthy coat of shiny new paint. With that said, if I was 12 I would have loved the shit out of this.

Really? I find CGI-heavy movies like this usually age really badly. The LotR movies have gotten to that point now where I can't watch them anymore without noticing something wrong with the CGI all the time. That's part of the reason why I'm not interested in Avatar. Ten years from now, this movie will look laughably bad.

I honestly think it`s the shittest movie I`ve seen other than Nightbeast. Nightbeast is at least funny though. I wouldn`t watch Avatar again for anything less that $100
