Is spot on (ht Offsetting Behaviour). I can’t remember the last time I got as genuinely bored in a movie as I did with Avatar. The scenery and graphics were beautiful, but the acting and story were both atrocious.
I tried to enjoy it, hell I even did enjoy it for the first 30 mins. But over time the lack of story combined with the fact that how “beautiful the animation is” was being rammed repeated and unnecessarily down my throat made me both bored and a little bit irritated.
