James Cameron’s Avatar (2009)
I’m a sucker for adventure and sci fi movies, specially if they have a lot of CGI and being that this movie is 90% CGI makes me want to run to the movie theaters in San Diego to watch it but the fact that it costs 10 freaken bucks to see a movie there makes me retreat back to Tijuana and wait until Dec 18 to watch it here for less than 5 bucks… yes you heard me!! movie tickets are really cheap here, but none the less I would pic San Diego theaters instead of Tijuana theaters (except for the VIP one) if I had the money to pay. Still don’t know who I’m going with, I hope a friend of mine can come along as I went to see New Moon alone because she was busy with her ass h*** boyfriend, so hopefully she will get rid of him so that we can go together 😛 I say it like that because I never really liked him, in fact none of our friends like him, LOL but that’s another story.
In A.D. 2154, the story’s protagonist, Jake Sully (Sam Worthington), is a former U.S. Marine who was wounded and paralyzed from the waist down in combat on Earth. Jake is selected to participate in the Avatar program, which will enable him to walk. Jake travels to Pandora. This world is a lush and sentient-inhabited jungle-covered satellite of Polyphemus, one of three gas giants that orbit Alpha Centauri A, 4.3 light years from Earth.
Pandora’s biosphere is filled with incredible life forms, some beautiful, many terrifying. This world is also home to the Na’vi, a sentient humanoid race, who are considered primitive, yet are more physically capable than humans. Standing three meters tall (approximately 10 feet), with tails and sparkling blue skin, the Na’vi live in harmony with their unspoiled world. As humans encroach deeper into Pandora’s forests in search of valuable minerals, the Na’vi unleash their formidable warrior abilities to defend their threatened existence.
Jake has unwittingly been recruited to become part of this encroachment. Since humans are unable to breathe the air on Pandora, they have created genetically-bred human-Na’vi hybrids known as Avatars. On Pandora, through his Avatar body, Jake will be able to walk again. Sent deep into Pandora’s jungles as a scout for the soldiers that will follow, Jake encounters many of Pandora’s beauties and dangers. There he meets a young Na’vi female, Neytiri (Zoe Saldaña).
Over time, Jake integrates himself into the Na’vi clan, and begins to fall in love with Neytiri. As a result, Jake finds himself caught between the military-industrial forces of Earth and the Na’vi, forcing him to choose sides in an epic battle that will decide the fate of Pandora.
