Avatar — Savages not just Noble, but Neon

I checked this out last night, and as a cinematic entertainment I really enjoyed it.  As a movie it’s much, much better than “Titanic,” which was an immensely successful entertainment, but also mawkish, sentimental and plodding.  Avatar is a more rigorously plotted and realized piece of film making, and gets points for advancing the state […]
