    Coraline is my fave on there. Great story and production. Only film where I really enjoyed the 3D effect in the cinema too.

    Seen this for the first time this month and despite being freaky, my daughter really likes it!
    I thought she'd be terrified, but she's watched it loads.

    Avatar gets a lot of hate, but it feels like a lot of people have reappraised it and there's a pack mentality to attack it.

    At the time of seeing it, I thought it was an amazing spectacle and thoroughly enjoyed it and the 3D really added to the event feel of seeing it.

    With Avatar I'd say it's at best a very middling film. It doesn't even register on a list of best James Cameron films let alone as a great of cinema. It definitely wouldn't recieve the level of criticism it does if it hadn't made as much as it did so it does get more flaming than it deserves. It's utterly forgettable fluff though from beginning to end, a bit like fanfiction with a budget.

    I can imagine though that whatever former Fox executive that greenlit the insane plan for four sequels is feeling incredibly smug right now that they're no longer attached to those projects.

    That's great. I remember thinking when I saw it it would be scary for kids, but fun scary.

    I was so hyped for Avatar and it totally didn't do it for me. My mate demanded I see it again, and I did ... and it had the same effect. Yes, the story has been done before but I can live with that ... and the kind of not-quite-there Na'vi design I could have lived with too ... but I don't really enjoy being spoon-fed messages designed to prick my conscience ... just felt it was laid on a bit too thick.

    One thing I did love though was the spectacle of all the giant industrial machinery ... only Cameron could have done that.

    It's not a perfect film, but it's one that deserved to be seen at the cinema in 3D.
    I just think the hate is a little unnecessary.

    Agreed. There's certainly nothing to hate about it.
