AVATAR (2009)
– 4 and a half out of 5 stars 

Set in the future, the humans are interested in mining Unobtainium, a precious mineral that is found on Pandora. Pandora is inhabited by the Na’vi, who are blue-skinned and live in harmony with Mother Nature. In order to obtain the valueable mineral, the humans have created avatars that are created from human and Na’vi DNA. Enter paraplegic Marine, Jake Sully, who has replaced his dead twin to be an avatar driver. Left to fend for himself in Pandora at night, he meets Neytiri, who rescues him from Pandora’s beasts. The Na’vi decides to let Jake learn their ways. As Jake grows closer to Neytiri and bonds with the Na’vi, his loyalty becomes divided between the latter and the humans. When the humans decide to forcefully exterminate the Na’vi and attacks them, it is up to Jake to fight for the fate of Pandora.

OMG I saw this in 3D and it was amazing! Pandora is such a beautiful place – especially at night! No wonder Neytiri extinguished that eyesore of a flame Jake lit. Everything glows in the dark beautifully! The scene where Jake first appears butt-naked in his Avatar form is almost priceless! Though the story was quite predictable towards the end, the effects are real good and I kept hoping the beasts wouldn’t stop attacking those darn heartless soldiers. It has a happy ending so I like it!

Well, it’s actually past midnight already, so HAPPY NEW YEAR 2010!
