A friend sent me a 63-page "scriptment" for James Cameron's forthcoming Avatar. I'd heard about the project beforehand but had no idea what the story was actually about. Turns out, it's Last of the Mohicans meets Apocalypto meets the Battle of Endor, meets an Earth Liberation Front Recruiting video. With dashes of Jurassic Park and The Matrix thrown in for spice. Crazy, crazy stuff.
Kind of awesome, too.

If Hollywood is to be believed, Avatar is a game changer, both in terms of 3D and overcoming the uncanny valley. The praise has been heady...
If you haven't seen the cartoon, check it out on Nick or Nicktoons. My son got his mom and Grandpa hooked on it. The storyline is good, but it's got too much campy bits for my tastes.
You had me at "Battle of Endor"
If you haven't seen the cartoon...Ahh... actually, James Cameron's Avatar has nothing to do with Nickelodeon's Avatar: The Last Airbender. Two wholly different properties.
