And that's why so many people hate it. It's proof that pretty lights are all you need to stun an audience. Hollywood doesn't have to make another Terminator 2 or Temple of Doom. Hell, Avatar grossed more than either one. And all it needed was some colorful visuals with a 3d effect tacked on.
He never mentioned anything about the lights. I'm sure Him, among phee, latios, and I are not just consumed by a movie with pretty lights. There was at most two parts that the movie had really focused on the lights. It appears to me that you were more consumed by the flashy features than just the movie itself. So what if it's some sorta suped up Pocahontas, it shouldn't be bashed because of so. Besides, just about every movie about a hero has a stereotypical feature in him/her, it's no new thing that everyone has just started doing.
You liked Transformers 2.
Also, I haven't seen Avatar (planning on it sometime soon), so PLEASE do not spoil anything for me.
