I loved this movie and it's the most amazing thing ever put on the silver screen. I'm gonna see it again before it leaves the theater.
Doesn't take much to entertain you these days, does it?
Don't you think the whole evil-white-American-males subjugate the nice-poor-savage-hippies for nothing but greed plots are just a weensy bit played out? Not even a little bit tired of being told how bad you are? *shrugs* The plot just didn't serve up anything new or interesting, IMO.
Ahhh whatever. It's first movie I saw where Earthlings go to an alien planet and invade its inhabitants. Usually it's the other way around, with us getting invaded. In that aspect, I thought it was original.

The 3-D combined with the awesome special effects is why I want to go see it again. It's eye candy.
