Avatar was one of the most-over hyped movies I've seen in recent times. When you can predict the storyline and foresee the end of a movie 5 minutes after entering the theater, it just sucks.

Avatar was boring, dull and painful.

Up in the air might win the OSCAR. Great movie so far. An Education is another good movie and has chance to win OSCAR.

Actually, this movie, was made once before. What's the name of that Disney flick....Oh yes, Ferngully. Those of you that have seen Avatar, I invite you to the prior version - yes, Ferngully. While watching Ferngully, just imagine the characters to be big, giant, cartoonishly stupid blue. Yes, that'll do it....

Though it's main story sucks but due to significant effort in cinematography it may get OSCAR !
though it will be tagged as overrated one for the name James Cameron

Moreover, major part of the story of Slumdog Millionaire (2008) also boring and understandable too early ! comparing to that AVATAR isn't too bad imo

The Hurt Locker typical war related movie also getting attention for James Cameron's ex wife in directing.

Inglourious Basterds is good one.

District 9 is outstanding...I wish it will be awarded best movie. (also waiting for District 10 ! :P )

DID YOU JUST CALL HURT LOCKER TYPICAL? Wow. You did watch the movie right? You might not like the movie but you cannot call it typical. It was an outstanding movie.

I liked District 9. The mocumentary style was good enough to keep one engaged. The South African set-up also helped in holding the interest of the north American audience, I think. Special effects were credible. Acting was good on the part of the "human" characters. They could have given the aliens some more expressions. Overall, engaging movie. It had a Spielberg quality to it. Signs of good directing was present throughout.
