Things happen later here, most of the time.

Saw the movie Avatar the other night.

It was visually magnificent....but I felt like I had heard the story before. But with different characters.

Like...Dances With Wolves, or The Last Samurai, or Horton Hears a Who (to a certain extent).

I thought it was interesting how women/females were presented in this movie.

Anyway, it was enjoyable and stunning....but I wouldn't say it would make my favorites list.

That's really all I have to say about it. What were your thoughts?

I thought of 2 more things to say:

1. I am fully aware that most movies fall into some formula. Some of my favorite movies are the most formulaic. When I say that this movie had the same story as others, I don't mean that it is formulaic, but that the actual story is familiar....if that makes any sense at all.

2. I really liked Giovanni Ribisi's character in this movie. Or him, anyway. Maybe not the character, as his character was kind of a jerkas. But it was really nice to see him in a character that is so different than what I've seen him play in the past.
