The shots where Jake(?)/Sam Worthington enters his avatar on the operating table and then says "this is great" and grins were amazing. The rest was extremely dodgy to me, except the shot of Zoe Saldana's(?) character weeping. That looked exactly like her.
Really? I thought that shot was terrible. Some of the latter scenes (like the shot of Saldana's character looking through the leaves) were much more impressive.
I really agree with what you say about the scene where she cries, though. The emotion really registers on her face. On that level, this is a far cry from the Zemeckis mo-cap outings.
It's funny seeing Delgo
comparisons, since around the time of the releases of Delgo
and Battle for Terra
there was actually speculation that they were Avatar
rip-offs. Cameron's first draft scriptment has been relatively easy to find on the internet since the mid 90s.
What amazes me is that so many people even remember that movie.

A bit of a shame, because I really like the atmosphere in that shot.
I'm also hearing that it does
look a lot better on the big screen. Reports coming back from the showings in Australia and New Zealand are extremely impressed and say the trailer completely fails to do justice to the the experience of watching this.
If this is true, it's not too surprising that Fox have held off so long on marketing. In this day and age, how do you sell a film on its visual impact when that can't be properly conveyed with a trailer?
