Avatar Special

azebz 2023/01/12



In the year 2154, Earth is in a state of crisis due to the depletion of natural resources. To find a solution, humans begin searching for resources on other planets, including Pandora, a lush moon orbiting the gas giant Polyphemus. Pandora is home to the Na’vi, a humanoid species with blue skin and tails who live in harmony with their environment.

The RDA Corporation sends a team of scientists led by Dr. Grace Augustine to Pandora to study and mine a valuable mineral called unobtanium. The team also includes former Marine Jake Sully, who has lost the use of his legs and is sent to control an avatar - a genetically engineered Na’vi body controlled remotely by human consciousness.

Jake meets Neytiri, the daughter of Na’vi Chief Eytukan, who initially sees him as a threat but eventually becomes his teacher and guide in learning about Na’vi culture. While learning about their way of life, Jake starts to feel more connected to the Na’vi than to his own kind.

Colonel Miles Quaritch leads the military operation on Pandora and is ordered by RDA’s CEO Parker Selfridge to remove the Na’vi from their land so that mining can continue. Despite Grace’s efforts to negotiate peace between humans and Na’vi, Quaritch initiates an attack on Hometree, where Neytiri’s clan lives.

Jake betrays RDA and sides with the Na’vi in defending Hometree. Afterward, he becomes fully accepted into their community and falls in love with Neytiri. Using knowledge gained through his avatar form, he helps plan an attack on RDA’s base before they can destroy another sacred site.

During this attack, Quaritch engages in hand-to-hand combat with Jake in his human form while wearing an AMP suit - an exoskeleton used for heavy labor but modified for combat purposes. Neytiri kills Quaritch by shooting two arrows into his chest.

The final scene shows Jake permanently transferring his consciousness into his Na’vi avatar using the Tree of Souls, allowing him to live with Neytiri and protect Pandora from human destruction. The film ends with Jake saying, “I see you,” a phrase used by the Na’vi in greeting and farewell that signifies understanding and connection.




“Avatar” is a science fiction film directed by James Cameron, released in 2009. The movie was a huge commercial success, gross over $2.7 billion worldwide and becoming the highest-grossing film of all time until it was by “Avengers: Endgame” in 9. But “Avatar” isn’t just a financial success; it also a cinematic masterpiece that has left an indelible mark on popular culture.

The story of “Avatar” takes place in the mid-22nd century on Pandora, a lush, tropical moon orbiting the gas giant Polyphemus in the Alpha Centauri star system. The moon is inhabited by a race of sentient beings called the Na’vi, who live in harmony with their environment and worship a nature named Eywa. The humans have come to Pandora to extract a valuable mineral called unobtanium from beneath the Na’vi’s ancestral home, but they encounter resistance from the indigenous population.

The protagonist of “Avatar” is Jake Sully (played by Sam Worthington), a paraplegic Marine veteran who joins the Avatar Program, which allows humans to remotely control genetically engineered Na’vi bodies with their minds. Jake’s mission is to infiltrate the Na’vi and persuade them to relocate so that the mining operation can proceed.

At first, Jake sees his mission as just another job that will allow him to earn enough money to get his legs back through surgery. He’s not particularly interested in the Na’vi or their culture, and he sees them as obstacles standing in his way. However, as he spends more time among them and gets to know Neytiri (played by Zoe Saldana), one of the Na’vi warriors who becomes his teacher and companion, he begins to see things differently.

What makes “Avatar” such a powerful and unforgettable film is the way it uses cutting-edge technology to create a fully realized world that feels both exotic and familiar. The lush forests and floating mountains of Pandora are breathtakingly beautiful, and the creatures that inhabit them are imaginative and believable. The Na’vi themselves are modeled on human actors but with blue skin, tails, and pointed ears; their culture is inspired by various indigenous societies from around the world.

But “Avatar” isn’t just a technical achievement; it’s also a deeply emotional story that explores themes of colonialism, environmentalism, and cultural imperialism. It shows how easy it is for humans to dismiss other forms of life as inferior or expendable when they stand in the way of profit or progress. It also shows how hard it is for individuals to break free from the mindset of their own society and see things from another perspective.

Furthermore, “Avatar” features some truly impressive action sequences that rival those of any other blockbuster film. From the aerial battles between banshees (winged creatures used for transportation) to the final battle between the Na’vi and the humans in their mechanized exosuits, every scene is expertly choreographed and executed.

In conclusion, “Avatar” is not only an entertaining movie but also a thought-provoking one that raises important questions about our relationship with nature and with each other. Its stunning visuals, compelling characters, and exciting action make it a must-see film for anyone who loves science fiction or great cinema in general. Whether you’re watching it for the first time or revisiting it after many years, “Avatar” will transport you to another world and leave you thinking about its message long after the credits roll.

As a child, I was moved by the movie “The Bad News Bears Go to Japan” where Japanese professional baseball players and American actors performed in front of a large audience. This made me fall in love with the movie. This blog is my review of the movie that I actually saw. Please use it as a reference when renting movies.

For a long time, in between housework,
I would go to the movie theater to watch films and then write reviews of the movies in a diary which I stored away in a closet.
When I showed these reviews to Azesan, he suggested turning them into a website.
I am grateful for this wonderful opportunity. I may be nearing the end of my life, but if reading my reviews can move the hearts of younger people,
I think that would be wonderful.
It may even become a catalyst for various realizations and changes in their lives moving forward.
