Avatar – The Worst Movie Ever Made

with 57 comments

Despite amazing special effects like these, Avatar is the worst movie ever made.

I know several people have asked me for my take on Avatar and I try not to disappoint my faithful readers.   Avatar is the worst movie ever made.   It has groundbreaking 3-D special effects, but after awhile,  they can’t cover up the thin plot that is your typical recycled story that they borrowed from Dances with Wolves, The Last Samurai, and Brian’s Song.    Action takes place on the planet Pandora, where a bunch of 10 foot tall blue aliens live.   This is where the lead character winds up.   At first, he goes there to infiltrate the aliens, but eventually he goes native.

Obviously, this movie is an analogy for our foreign policy.  I find this movie insulting and anti-American and I have no doubt that if I went to see it, I would find it to be the worst movie I ever saw.  I thought of leading a boycott of this movie,  but I realized there are already several great conservative boycotts of the movie so I had no need to reinvent the wheel.   The problem is that a group of left wing nut jobs is already boycotting Avatar, supposedly because it doesn’t advocate transgenderism.   I find this to be a horrible situation.   How do I let James Cameron know that I do not approve of movies like Avatar that show America in such a negative light while not supporting showing transgenders in a positive light?  Please readers and help me with this dilemma because I’m stuck.

UPDATE: I have been told that this picture was not actually from the movie Avatar, but from an older movie called Flash Gordon.   Now, this one looks good. I’m sure the anti-heterosexual boycotters would cringe at this decidedly masculine image, but I think I’m going to pick this one up on Netflix.

  1. How can you review a movie you haven’t seen?

    Dan

  2. It’s not as hard as you think. It helps to read other people’s reviews and also to check out the movie ads. It takes a lot of guessing too.

  3. Yes. Because America are the purveyors of all that is right and good. You know what’s un-American? Americans. This land is not your land. This land is not my land.

  4. I’m going to second Dan!

    You can’t review a movie if you haven’t seen it! Idiot.

    January 6, 2010 at 11:22 pm

  5. But if Americans are Un-American, who is American? This hurts my brain.

  9. Worst movie ever made? Um. Have you ever seen any other movie before? I’m guessing you don’t see movies often . . . or at all.

  10. This is the worst review of a movie I have ever read! I mean, it totally spoils the whole plot of the movie including the surprise ending. And then it goes on to belittle all the actors in the movie. Not only that, it wanders off into strange mutterings about 1920’s era bootlegging, and the current price of feta cheese. If I were to actually read the review, I’m sure I would hate it, and all that stuff I made up would be in there. After all, I did read the other comments and the title of the post – that makes me “well informed”.

  11. Les, also has 3 letters just like Dan and JRM. Very interesting, but I’ll play your game. Liberals are dependent on seeing everything and evaluating “facts”. That’s why Obama is having so much trouble as President. Conservatives can rely on faith to know whether a movie is good or not.

  16. Guys this is a joke. Based on the comments, the suggestion that the Flash Gordon pic was hyper masculine and not homo erotic at alll, and the other posts on this site, this is clearly and joke. It’s also hilarious. Good job Nate.

  17. you wrote: “You may want to try rereading the post before criticizing it.” this from a ‘man’ who hasn’t seen the movie. you neo-cons are so hypocritical it’s stupifying. what size of tinfoil hat do you take? and do you REALLY believe everything you say? ‘faith’ is always tainted by the individual expressing it. ‘you’re doing a heckuva job, natey!’

  18. i’m confused. what do you mean this is a joke? i think this is the most honest review of “Avatar” I’ve read so far!(and i’ve read a hundred if i’ve read one)consider the possibility that “Avatar” is SO bad,every other reviewer was paid off (probably in 3-D glasses and popcorn)except Nate,who knew that seeing it was counter-productive to his altruistic aim to prevent us from wasting our money.wish i had READ this before i went to the theater.

  19. I mean that he is not really objecting to this movie based on political reasons. Look at the rest of the site, he has several award posts where he gives himself every slot on every list.

    He included fake campaign ads that are clearly against the Republican candidate in another. He’s clearly mocking Brit Hume in another recent post.

    This is satire. I think it’s great, definitely one of the funniest things I’ve read today. Also it has been amusing watching the knee jerk reactions of other people.

  20. Good luck with your dilemma. It looks like a doozy!

    Personally, from the reviews I’ve read 😉 I see this movie as being more anti-greed than anti-American. I can get behind that. Just because the one corporation in the movie is bad doesn’t necessarily mean the film maker is saying all corporations or all people or all people of a certain nationality are bad. But I also don’t know for sure because I won’t be seeing the movie since 3D gives me a headache and I didn’t enjoy sitting through Dances With Wolves the first time I saw it. Too long and too self righteous. I doubt making the natives blue would help.

    Just wanted to say.

  22. Ray – Thank you. I’m glad to finally see an intelligent reader who appreciates quality movie reviews. I find it hysterical that all these liberals expect me to watch this film before reviewing it. Republicans had no trouble with me reviewing Sarah Palin’s book without reading it–I thought it was great by the way (http://thatsrightnate.com/2009/11/19/a-book-review-of-going-rogue/).

    Look, say what you want about my movie reviews, but you can’t deny that they have an impact. Yes, my readers asked me to review Avatar and with good reason. My Dark Knight review killed that film (http://thatsrightnate.com/2008/08/04/dark-knight-boycott-overwhelming-success/). There are many conservatives out there and liberal Hollywood better learn to cater to us for a change.

  23. Suzanne–Your conclusion is interesting. Perhaps, it is not Americans who are the enemies, but a country like France who is known for dealing with anybody if it makes them a buck.

  25. Stephen Colbert called and he wants his act/schtick back. But it IS funny seeing how many people are taking you seriously.

    Should have been obvious when you put the Flash Gordon picture up, but I guess it was a little too subtle for people to get.

  26. I think you have a point regarding Avatar. Since the new administration was installed, there has been an all out assault on business large and small in America. To show that business is greed and should be arrested for that greed, but I think the time has come to realize that all business is not that way. I own a small promotional products company and it’s all about survival for me. To make enough money to pay the rent each month is what I do every day. I don’t have the excess that other businesses have so while I am trying to survive let’s not paint all business in the same greedy brush.

  32. Possibly you didn’t understand the Avatar plot; maybe you judge people before you have met them as well. You know, its strange how this is like a song by Jimmy Buffett: “………don’t try to describe the scenery if you’ve never seen it”; thats the problem with so many folks today, like they can’t see beyond their nose. You seem to be an ill informed, narrow minded, biased bozo and just a few steps above the gutter low Rush Limbaugh.

  36. Hello, I stumbled across this blog by a simple google search, and have come to the conclusion that you are an idiot. But I can’t disagree with you that avatar is the worst movie ever made. However, the evidence that you showed to supposedly “support” your claims that this movie was horrible was actually worse than the movie itself. Get a reality check transgender people are not less than human beings and deserve to be respected and supported. Pro transgender does not equal anti-heterosexual, that is a simple straw man logical fallacy that a first grader can see through, I have no wish to see anything else of your blog because your closed-mindedness is nothing short of infuriating.

  42. Avatar is the worst movie ever! Lets review the human race needs unubtainium to survive, and we find it on a planet that takes a lot of money to go to. Now the guy that is the diplomat to the Aliens doesn’t work out a peacefull way were the humans mine under the tree and get the metal that the aliens have no need for, then put dirt down after. NO instead he falls in love with a gaint blue monster that he can’t have sex with and be trays the human race. plus he and his friends kill US Marines ans joke about it. witch he and friends were. he got compromised. then the girl marine say i didn’t sign up for this talkin about blowing up the tree. when Yes she did. so can’t blow up the tree house but can make jokes while killing marines. and the hero of the movie dies trying to complete the mission, well that sucks. All and all the movie say humans are bad and Alien monsters are good. and its fun the watch US Marines die, and default on there race. to live on a planet they can’t breath on. fuck Earth, and people.GO AVATAR?

  43. Nate- I completely agree with your review. I tried not to watch this movie, just because the trailers looked really, really stupid. My wife brought the dvd home one evening, and even though I vowed never to watch avatar, I gave in to my curiosity. I can honestly say it was 10X worse than I thought it was gonna be. The storyline was ridiculous, the characters even more ridiculous, and acting (can you call it that?) was horrible. Maybe I would feel different if I would have watched it in 3D. Why are people such lemmings?

  47. While I respect your views, I can not help but find you hilarious in thinking you can review and/or advise on a film that you have yet seen. I wouldn’t trust a persons opinion from which is accumulated simply via inaccurate trailer judgements and no basis from the material in its entirety.

    Making a statement along the lines of “this movie is Anti-America”, helps me to solidify my choice in moving out of the USA and back home to the UK. Without getting too political, the USA is not known for its generosity, kindness or accepting nature. It’s known for homophobia, racism, executions, unfairness to workers etc, etc.

    This film, though not entirely original … does have a strong basis in reality. And yes, though the evil in this film is certainly portrayed from an American perspective it could be applied to many a country the world over, including the UK.

    Just don’t forget how America was founded and what happened to a considerable number of native Americans when you decided to kill them for their land.

    Sound familiar?

  49. Yeah, I hated “Avatar,” too. One thing that I have found most annoying about the movie is the chorus of praise for its “scientific accuracy.” So I thought it would be useful to just make an archive showing that the movie is not science-fiction; it’s science mixed with fantasy. I made a series about the flawed science of “Avatar.” Check it out:

    The only thing i don’t get is how do you make political opinions about this movie. A movie is supposed to be entertainment for families who are “willingly” paying a ridiculous amount of money to see it in theaters. I agree it isn’t a great movie but i just dont see why you guys make so political

  54. Lol. Seriously some of you people take shit way too seriously. It’s a satire. Granted not the best satire out there but there’s no need to get all bent out of shape over it.

    And on another note. The movie is trite at best. The only thing it had going for it was that it was an orgy of special effects. The ‘holier than thou’ preachy-ness was enough to make me want to get up and leave. If you can’t see the overt extreme leftest messages coming from the film, then you must live your life with rose colored glasses. And this is coming from a liberal.

  56. I agree completely. The movie was nothing more than a complete pile of crap. The less-than-subtle political messages were redundant and one of a million repeats. This movie relied on a moronic “young and hip” political trend to make its sales. Anyone who thought this move was good was either under 10 or mentally retarded.

  57. All of you who like this review… F*^% YOU… Now that that buissness is resolved, let’s talk about why I will never read any of the shit you post up here again. First of all, go out and by that movie before I find you, comment this, and next time you do a review, do it from a nuetral political standing as not to offend people like myself. I don’t care if that post was from a year ago, I agree with Dean, and guess what… I LIVE IN THE F*(%ING U.S.A!!! And DON’T try to 1-UP me like you tried to do with the other people, because I won’t give a shit. If I can make this message hurtful to you in any way, please let me know. Thank You Very Much
