Destroyer of Nazi Teddy Bears
District 9 should have been movie of the year That movie was fucking amazing.The story was so average that it was bad. The visuals were fantastic.
However, if I wanted the best of both worlds I'd watch District 9.
I stayed away from most of the hype revolving around Avatar, thus, I missed out on what it promised.Avatar promised to turn around cinema, have an amazing plot, change how you view the world, everything. It... had shiny. It changed idiots (the ones who change their views on the world because a guy on the news told them to once) views of the world. That's it. If it was only promising to give us lots of shiny, like a tech-demo, I'd say it satisfied as good. It didn't.
Sure, it didn't change anything regarding movies, and yeah, the plot wasn't anything special, BUT GOOD GOD THE PRETTY GRAPHICS!
I'm not the kind of guy that will sit through a three hour movie, but I was able to watch Avatar twice with no problems. The story might not be anything new or exciting, but it's a formula that works, and Avatar packaged it well enough.
And the gimmicks that went with the movie were enough to justify it's creation. For the most part anyways.
