Who would ever thought James Cameron, the muscle behind “Titanic” will give labour to an infused fantasy genre a la ‘Pocahontas-meets-Transformers-meets- Lord Of The Rings’ masterpiece? Well, welcome the “Avatar”; masterpiece that boasts Cameron’s 14 years of imagination and vision- in forms of cute big eyed bluish primeval of Pandora, no less! (,”)
Jack Sully & Neytiri
Zoe Saldana as Neytiri
I went to see the film with Syahrir and Firdaus Sulhi last night at Jitra Mall cineplex. How my rating goes? 4 stars outta 5 stars! The narration was alright; the colors used to illustrate Pandora and the mythical realms were a mixture of fluorescent and vibrant colors; the music composition by James Horner suits every sequences and give the additional touch of ‘raw-ness’ to the sequences; the actors did great job especially Zoe Saldana (who happened to star in quite impressive line-ups of movies but yet to emerge as a powerhouse actress; this could be her REAL breakout to the Tinseltown!!) who plays Neytiri & Stephen Lang who portrays the main villain, Colonel Quaritch!
Although the film comes with a cliche plot (colony conquers a land dwelled by aborigine native tribes and try to dig up the wealth from the land : like ‘Pocahontas’), the spectacular technology used to translate the fantasy world of Pandora into silverscreen is ETHEREAL. I honestly felt like as if I were in that world. It’s so magical! It’s a no wonder that James Cameron is getting all the Golden Globe and potential Academy Awards nods for this movie- and not to forget the heart-wrenching OST theme song for the movie, “I See You”, sung by British chanteuse, Leona Lewis which definitely put cherry on top of the icing.
After the movie, we went for a light supper at a warung nearby. I ordered a char kueow teow (which was not tasty at all) and an oblong. You know what is an oblong? Obviously the name explains the shape; but it is actually bread with beef sandwiched between it- like a hotdog except the usual burger beef replaces the sausage. That one, is TASTY! (,”). On whole, it was a great movie and no miscellaneous setback hampered my night. Hehehe..
I see you ..
Walking through a dream
I see you
My light in darkness breathing hope of new life
Now I live through you and you through me
I pray in my heart that this dream never ends
I see me through your eyes
Living through life flying high
Your life shines the way into paradise
So I offer my life as a sacrifice
I live through your love
You teach me how to see all that’s beautiful
My senses touch your word I never pictured
Now I give my hope to you
I pray in my heart that this world never ends
