Saw Avatar today with the family, and really enjoyed it (how could you not?!!?).  Personally loved the anti-war, anti-corporation, anti-American message and was constantly reminded throughout the film of the European colonizers/Native American conflict.  Although some have criticized the film for being a string of cliches, (man learns ways of natives, sees from their perspective, fights on their side (Dances With Wolves, Last Samurai)) I think the way that Cameron puts this classic story on such a grand stage is truly impressive.  His imaginative use of technology and creativity really make the film feel fresh.  Although enormous in scale, the action and use of 3D were not excessive in any way.  A great film that I would like to see again soon.
