avatar is a 9.8 for me /10.

i saw it on imax 3D, i ate some brownies beforehand.

Im not sure if it was just because i was ridiculously stoned, but it was pretty amazing. at times it is corny but by the end it really gets you into the story

Denzel carried the movie, but i personally love travolta as an actor so i give this one a 7/10 for the interplay between these two. story is sorta predictable and the dialog is sorta cheesy

Fear and Loathing - 8/10

A good story of two dumbasses abusing psychedelic substances with no intentions. Lol @ nihilism.

their intention was to document the American dream. Gonzo ends up concluding that the American dream is represented by the fact that as a child, the owner of the circus circus casino had run away to join the circus and now owned the whole show. You would know that if you read.

Yea, but this thread is about movies.

From seeing the movie, that's what I concluded.

You have no analytical skills, and your synopsis sounds like a gimp retard ape's interpretation...

Damn I guess if I have to write an essay and have sources to post in this thread than I think all of these posts should be deleted. Grieves chill the fuck out you big grumpy bitch. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, and I gave the movie a good rating, wtf is your deal lol.

I just watched this movie last night that was wrong on so many levels. I think it was called The Girl Next Door (not the one with the girl who is a porn star that lives next door). Anyway it was about these two girls in the 50s who were sent to live with an aunt after they lost their parents and the aunt was twisted off and abused the girls and let the cousins abuse the girls. Anyway I'd give it a 8 for the creep factor.....

yeah there's the native parallel. ... but the actual war is taken as a necessity. The environmental message there is strong though, yes. The anti-colonial message yes. War is bad? No.

I would take district 9's apartheid references over Avatars colonialism parallels, any day...

Avatar was too pretty, there is no dirt, no grime, its too glossed over...
