"Hot Blue Kitties!" --My friend Ty on the Avatar Characters.

Based on Ty's very positive review of this movie, and another friend that said I should see it, tonight I decided to get out of my house and went with some friends to see Avatar. Even though I had only heard really good things, I was still a little skeptical if I would actually enjoy it. I'm not usually into weird sci-fi movies.

My overall opinion of the film: I enjoyed it! It was pretty good. It was noticeably long, but I didn't think it went too long. I think it's definitely worth a watch, even if you're not usually into, as my sister put it, movies that "seem like only gamers would like." It's definitely weird at times, but I did enjoy it as a whole.

The cons:
-At times it was a bit too cheesy. My friend Griff summed it up as "the adult version of Fern Gully."
-The alien "natives" actually had some things about their culture that were comparable to human cultures, and that kinda bugged. I wish they were more their own culture ENTIRELY. (Dreadlocks, wearing loin cloths and their accents for example.) It seemed like they were way too comparable to stereotypical African tribes. Perhaps this was purposeful, but it made it harder to believe them as an alien race.
-One thing that REALLY bugged me, and I know this is me being very picky, but did the main girl HAVE to have a freaking gauge in her ear? Really? She's an alien, but she's into modern fashion trends? I HATE gauges.

-I don't remember being bothered by the acting, with the exception of the main two villains, they kinda bugged a little, but the rest of the acting was pretty good.
-This movie was beautiful. They were really creative with all the plant life and stuff, and I had fun watching it. I enjoyed the cool scenery and the special effects.
-I was very entertained by a weird movie. I was just really glad that it didn't weird me out too much.

Anyway, that's my review of sorts. If you're on the fence about it, I'd give it a shot. It was pretty good.

So I'm done with 6 applications for law school, and I'm mostly done with my BYU application. Just need signatures and the ecclesiastical endorsement. So tonight I'm going to try and finish the last three applications I have left. Since I've been sick I haven't been able to sleep at night. It's buggin' me. But I think I'm starting to get over the cold. Anyway, that's all really. K, see ya.
