      I just saw the 15 minute preview at the BFI Imax... and I now feel quite sick. The mix of photo-realistic 3D and Cameron's shaky camera shots and POV bits, with sound that physically shakes the seats(!) make the whole thing feel like you're riding a simulator. Fair play to Cameron, as the visuals are fantastic, but perhaps the film should come with a motion-sickness warning, like Cloverfield.

      Truly terrible dialogue, if this is the best they could show us!!! The creatures, not the Na'Vi which are just tall blue shaved cats, are the kind of monsters children draw. A rhino crossed with a hammer-head shark and a butterfly, a six legged panther crossed with Alien. And everything glows, far too bright. The scene in the jungle has heavy tree coverage, but is still bright so it looks total fake. If you've played Halo, Gears of War, Resident Evil or any game with lots of video cut away story, then you've seen better. I wanted this too be better, I wanted it to be the next step in cinema, but its not. Someone needs to get Jim Cameron to go play some games of watch some cinema to see that even 'Ant Bully' follows the same basic story line (also see 'Ferngully', 'Arthur and the Invisibles', 'Battle for Terra')- Human goes native, finds their not the bad guys, learns about himself, falls in love, nature is good and humans destroy it and that a battle at the end has humans now being the bad guys. Too high a budget means high returns needed, ie keep it family friendly.

      Is it just me or do the graphics for this film look like Animatrix, Final Fantasy spirits within and Final Fantasy VII Advent Children? With the film starring big Blue Thunder Cats who look like Kimahri Ronso from Final Fantasy X, Im looking forward to it as something different :D
