review: Avatar

It's got to be said: this movie disappoints. I'm giving it zero stars (same old crap).

It's a feast for the eyes, OK. But, the essence of a movie is its story. And the story in Avatar was a badly recycled cliche. The evil military-industrial complex oppressing the noble, nature-loving natives. This movie was little more than "Dances with Wolves" plus "Star Wars" (plus some pretty impressive CGI). Before 30 minutes had passed, I knew the entire plot -- and that really ruins a movie. It didn't help that none of the characters were particularly interesting.
