What’s not to like about Avatar? Fascinating premise that allows the crippled marine to inhabit an alien body. Strong story with a good character arc. I particularly liked the bit when the Marine described himself as “a warrior, of the Jarhead clan”. The action was excellent. The graphics were superb, a quantum leap from what has been done before. And the ending was great. Nothing like a thorough girl with a bow and arrow. Some have derided the story but overall I thought it was good. Classic big screen stuff.

Na’vi, the constructed language is turning out quite popular. One wonders whether it will knock off Klingon? Still cooking up my own IAL proposal…
