Re: Avatar - Blu-Ray Review

He was right about the THX trailer, that was the best part of the whole movie.

Great sound, great picture, horrible acting, horrible dialogue, ripped off story line done too many times.

Should've known by how much they hyped it. So much self promotion by Cameron, such a dissapointment.

I guess I'll be the only one on this forum to have this opinion of it. I guess it would make a good reference disk for people that can stand to watch it again.

Re: Avatar - Blu-Ray Review

I've read there's a special edition coming out later this year. Is it worth waiting for or should I pick up a copy of this now?

Re: Avatar - Blu-Ray Review

Am I aloud to link to Youtube videos on here? I know there were some questions he answered about the movie, one of which was about a 3D version. Let me know and I'll post a link to the channel.

Re: Avatar - Blu-Ray Review

Sorry, I'm not sure how to post this so it doesn't insert it into my post and is a link instead.

Here's the vid discussing the special edition.

http://www.youtube.com/user/HomeTheaterForum#p/u
From there you can link to the other videos where he discussed 3D, 1.78:1 (16x9) AR, etc. They seem to have a lot of other good stuff about the movie as well. If I get some time later, I might compile an Avatar FAQ from some of these.

This film has no extras whatsoever - Cameron has chosen to release the film with the full disc dedicated to optimal quality. The upcoming 3D release is rumored to have a second Blu-Ray packed with extras.
Hmmm... then why give me two copies of the same movie? Instead of the second disc being a DVD, put the extras on it!

Jason, you're not the only one.
Reminds me of a few women I've met. Pretty to look at, dumb as a box of rocks and, well.... I'll leave the rest up to your imagination since this is a family oriented board

Thankfully I must say that this film has by far the best quality picture of any 1.78-1 picture that i have ever seen.

I want the best quality picture i can get, i'm not interested in extra stuff, i just want to see the movie in the best quality possible & this blu ray delivers in spades I can see why they created "superbit" for dvds & i'm all for it.

Extras to me are like steelbook covers seem to be to other people. I'm not interested in a tin box, the plastic amaray boxes do a great job, tin boxes get damaged easily. I'm not going to watch the box over & over again so give me the best video!

Great though in a way predictable film, outstanding picture

Must have watched it at least 6 times already
