I've seen AVATAR22 times: 4 times @ a 3D theater, & 18 times on my PS3's BlueRay (which might I add is the only BR-disk that I own, next to KillZone 2 [which sux ballz imo]).
...Am I the only one? Yeah, I admit I've always been a sucker for next-gen GFX. I remember playing Q3A on my 433MHz PC with some middle-of-the-road GFX card, and running it at max GFX - but always getting 25 FPS
AVATAR may not be the best film ever, but I sure do love it 'overall' for what it has brought to the film industry! ...I remember watching James Cameron's talk at this year's E3, and wondering WTF he was talking about, and being bored out of my mind and actually feeling kinda bad for the guy too since his presentation sucked joo-joo-bees! ...I had no idea what AVATAR was at the time, but ever since a friend of mine had me watch it in theater, I've loved it ever since ;D ...Easily my favorite movie since The Matrix (note: I haven't seen this year's Inception [but I hear it's great]).
What did you think of AVATAR?

Avatar is fun to gawk at, it's beautiful and does pretty much exactly what you'd expect it to do.
Inception isn't quite as big and pretty visually, but IMO is a much better movie. It will make you think. Though it's best not to put it on too high a pedestal and raise your hopes unreasonably high, especially before you actually see what the movie really is.
I think this is the furthest OT thread I've seen... heh Though, oddly enough, I'm not surprised it happened on the Halo board. heh Makes me wonder if the Halo board might eventually just morph into an OT board.

In an attempt to make this thread ON TOPIC, I must say the second mission (Winter Contingency), when your riding the Falcon to the Communications relay, right after saving the marines, looking out at the view, is EXTREMELY reminiscent of Avatar.
Falcon looks like Avatar's planes. The Environment (on the right side) looks like Pandora, plus the giant planet in the background.
Didn't like Inception either time I saw it. Characters all bored me to tears.
All of Christopher Nolan's characters are more or less a reflection of what you might call an old fashioned world view, where men are stoic professionals who actualize themselves by becoming even more stoic as in the case of Inception, Dark Knight, and Memento. The only function of Nolan's women are to seduce or tell their leads to loosen up.
