I'm sick and tired of people saying how good Avatar is. It was a good movie don't get me wrong but people are thinking it's one of the greatest movies of all time and it's not even one of the best movies of the year. Just because it looks pretty and it had really great actors does not make it a great movie. The plot has been done over and over in movies such as: Dances With Wolves, The Last Samurai and even Pocohantas has done the same plot as Avatar. People who think Avatar is "one of the best movies ever" are the same people who thought Transformers 2 was a good movie and Inglorious Basterds was boring. It just goes to show you people these days don't want a movie with background information on characters, they want explosions and lots of them which is okay I guess, but I could spend that amount of money on fireworks and it would be more exciting. People really don't like seeing new things either thats why you see so many movies that are remakes, sequels, prequels, and superhero movies. They don't like seeing new things because it makes them use more of their mind and imagination if they see a movie that they have to think about afterwards. IMO, we need more movies like Inglorious Basterds because I like to see a well written script and good story without their being tons of explosions and getting into the characters based on the characters themselves and not just their actions because they "kick ass".
