Today I have a movie review for you! Huzzah! Seriously though, James Cameron’s fabulous movie Avatar is now officially one of my favorite movies. I have seen it in 2D as well as 3D now, and I definitely recommend seeing the movie in 3D. Things aren’t as exaggerated as they are in many 3D movies, which makes it all the more realistic as the level of depth makes you feel like you are standing right next to the characters in the movie.

For those of you who don’t know, Avatar is a movie about humans in the future on an alien planet called Pandora, populated by a humanoid species called the Na’vi. The storyline seems to contain elements of Pocahontas and Fern Gully with a whole new spin. Of course I don’t want to give away too many details, so I’ll leave it at that.
Not only are the story, characters and action amazing, but the scores are fabulous as well. I purchased the entire album on iTunes for $10 (a total of 15 or so songs that are only available if you buy the entire album) and have been listening to it ever since. James Horner, who also composed music for movies like Titanic, The Land Before Time, Jumanji and Braveheart, certainly did a very good job with the music for this movie. He created a cultural sound for the Na’vi, which in my opinion resembles African music. My favorite song is The Bioluminescence of the Night, a beautiful and slower paced song that brings the magic of the Pandoran forest to life.
So I have two tasks for you: 1) Go see Avatar in 3D! and 2) Listen to the soundtrack. If you don’t like to listen to movie scores, then at least take a listen to Leona Lewis singing I See You (Theme From Avatar), which is the song that plays during the end credits.
