Avatar was movie making at its best. Again Prometheous wasn't even close, its not in same league. Avatar was sci-fi, action, fantasy, great story telling, without gaping plotholes and with a powerful socially conscious message that resonated with people world wide. It was the epitome of art imitating real life. Prometheous probably would have been much better if James Cameron would have directed it. I say Prometheous was OK because it was visually stunning and the soundtrack outstanding, I suspect it will be a HT demo favorite once the Blu Ray comes out.
You say the Prometheous had better developed characters, I have to differ with you. That was part of the problem of the movie. As I stated before, name me one likable character, most the main characters were jerks. Talk about part played Charlize Theron, what a waste of a talented actress. What was she doing and who was she supposed to be, I mean really. Also, some critic characterized one of the female characters as a herione, I don't know which movie he was watching, but I don't see any female character play the part of a heroine or doing any heroic stuff in the movie. Lets not forget the captain, have you ever seen a captain so nonchalant and so uninterested in a mission like they one their crew was on. I mean, just give him a six pack and he would be cool. I just don't find that consistent with human nature, which take aways from the believeability of movie. Some of the other characters, the movie did not explain there expertise and why they were selected to join the crew and the mission. I mean who were those people and why should I care.
