26. HUMAN GREED....


Greed : An excessive desire to acquire or possess more than what one needs or deserves ,especially with respect to material wealth.

It is natural for human beings to go above and beyond in search of the ultimate possibilities in any interest or field.This natural urge supercedes peoples ability to realize or care about when they are taking advantage of those who are disadvantaged.


The person ,who knows contentment, eats to live but the greedy person lives to eat.Due to human greediness every day we are loosing one or the other species.When will it be our turn?

PLOT : " Avatar is the story of Jake Sully ,a paraplegic marine ,who replaces his brother on a secret mission to infiltrate the Na' vi ,the colony of beings that sit on the planet of Pandora ,where there is a precious ore ,that sells at a ridiculous amount.When Jake learns the ways of the Na' vi ,his feelings and learnings will put him and the people he trusts in dangerous jeopardy."

"Avatar" is visually mind-blowing ,I have never seen a film that could come any close to match its beauty.Even though everything in front of you was made from the scratch ,you never feel the world you see in the film is not real.And it doesn't matter the film's over 2.5 hours long - you never want to stop watching.

I can't even imagine how many people must have worked on 'Avatar' and for how long ,to make it all happen ,but you certainly believe in what you see ,wanting to know how the events will develop.

Because if you can't appreciate 'Avatar' then you just can't appreciate the art ,And 'Avatar' is a piece of art.It is a masterpiece of our times.Those who go and see this film will know what I mean.

AVATAR is the "STAR WARS" of this generation ,with no doubt is it a family film.This film isn't just about visuals ,it's about the magic of film-making.And that is something rarely achieved in such absolute beauty ,beauty that leaves you walking away from the theater spellbound.Avatar is unique.

You are immersed in the movie and you are exploring a new world.It is more than one time that you loose your breath.Beautiful images are following each other at high speed and you just can't believe what you are seeing.

Director James Cameron ,the man behind the legendary "TITANIC" ,really impressed me as he deals with nature and spirituality in this film and manages to explain it through biology and chemistry rather than implying any sort of holy deity.

Sam Worthington was fine as a leading man and some of his awkward attempts to integrate into the tribe are great.Zoe Saldana plays the Na'vi tribe perfectly.She is strong and wise ,yet vulnerable and feminine.She is the heart of the film.

The acting is superb ,both by the actors and the na'vi characters.But the strength of this experience lies in the world Cameron takes you to - the sights and sounds are realistic beyond compare.This is not your ordinary computer graphics - this is one of the very rare cases where special effects will make it more of a journey than just a movie.

It is also a film where 3D really shines.Till now ,3D was the forte of animation movies.Here, 3D will bring you uncannily close to realism.

The story is a bit thin and predictable though there are nice character developments.But that just doesn't matter because Avatar is just more than a movie ,a movie that writes film history.

The film ends leaving you wanting more ,it starts by slowly enticing you ,then gradually building up into one heck of an adventure ,rolling at such a speed that you'd never think it would end ,but films end eventually ,and I just hope that we are given SEQUELS in the future.

The happenings in the film serves as a stark warning that human greed is threatening to destroy the environment.

‘Spend/destroy now ,pay later’ is an extremely selfish move driven by HUMAN GREED.

Everyone has a right to a decent lifestyle but perhaps we all need teaching or reminding what a ‘decent lifestyle’ really should equate to.And our motivation should be the type of planet we would like our grandchildren to inherit.


  • Rating : "PG" for intense war scenes.
P.S : " James Cameron originally attempted to get this film made in 1999 as his immediate follow-up to Titanic (1997). However, at the time ,the special effects he wanted for the movie ran the proposed budget up to $400 million.No studio would fund the film, and it was subsequently shelved for almost ten years. "
