What Avatar Proves

The singular communal experience of partaking in the sights and sounds of the cinema will not merely pass away, as has been predicted by far too many for too long now. The cinema, and the unique role of it in modern society, will endure for as long as we take the enchanting and wondrous odyssey.

Wow...No truer words were ever spoken!...Now, if only I can get my père (father) to believe in the "magic" of films and take that "enchanting" and wondrous "odyssey."

But on the other hand, my mère (mother) would embrace your opinion about film(s) and she take that "enchanting" and wondrous "odyssey"...daily.

Merci de partager!

It is up to the director and the screenwriter to make the experience enchanting and engaging. Mere effects and other eye candy accouterments will not suffice.

Cameron innovated with his presentation and created a visual feast. This is why his film was good. As you can see, this had an effect (based in part of that film's escalating gross) and now everyone is jumping on the 3D band wagon. Its the new "It" girl in hollywood.

Welcome back Alexander...finally (swears underneath his breath).

Well, Alexander, I like this thought pattern, especially since this is a film I've militantly defended this film against some detractors, who have posed that dialogue is an issue here. But I think you framed this experience perfectly.

Hi! Alexander,
Hey! what happen to my original comment?
Alexander,
Did you notice that my "original" comment is...missing.

Please believe me I didn't remove it the Googler" removed it...Due to the fact, that I have one too many accounts. (They thought that someone was trying to "hack" into my account and closed them temporarily.)

(It's going to show 4 comments even though there are only three comments.)

I think people are reading too much into it. Like the people going into depression after watching Avatar because they long for a perfect world.

So, I went to see Avatar the other week. Did you? I bet you did! Did we like it? I thought it was pretty shiny…it kept my attention for three hours, which is a pretty handy trick. Made me a little motion-sick for a bit in the beginning though.

Last time Gameloft tried to charge $9.99 for a game, it ended badly.
Granted, Terminator Salvation wasn't a particularly amazing game, and it was short.
Small wonder then that the flexible pricing afforded by the App Store saw Gameloft dropping the price within four days of launch to $5.99. Indeed, it was down to $4.99, two weeks later.

Perhaps more important though is the way it subverts the Top 100 paid chart; previously viewed at the main chart in terms of consumer discovery.
Because of its price, Avatar doesn't appear in the US Top 100 paid chart as this is organised by number of downloads. Clearly, it's unlikely to out download many $4.99 games, let alone anything cheaper.But when it comes to the US Top 100 top grossing chart, Avatar is at #33 (at time of writing).
