Last week, while having our usual breakfast, I found myself so out of place when my friends talked about the movie Avatar. Yes, I was OP simply because I was the only one in the group who haven't watched it. So, last Friday, before going home, I decided to get a clear DVD copy of the said movie and scheduled a movie marathon Sunday with the kids.
When Sunday came, the kids were more excited than I am to watch Avatar. I even recalled Baby Gab saying, "Momo..Mommy Momo.."(which means, Mommy monster) while looking at the Avatar DVD cover. She's a little scared of that blue creature in the movie called the Na'vi.
Anyway, moving on, when the movie started, I couldn't really focus because the kids were constantly bugging me. Good thing the DVD copy that I got had a subtitle so I was able to catch up. Honestly, at first, I was having a hard time understanding what the movie was about. But as the story went on, I got the clear picture.
I don't want to elaborate here my view on each aspect of the movie. But overall, I'm not really that satisfied, it seemed like I expected too much from it. Well, the special effects are excellent, but the story...It was so predictable. It does not even exceed my liking for Titanic and The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. If asked which movie I'll watch again, my answer would definitely be The Lord of the Rings, especially The Return of the King.
