What did I think of "Avatar" on DVD you might ask? To explain this I am going to tell you about the Fleurburger which is served at Fleur de Lys in Las Vegas ( Mandalay Bay to be exact) and costs a whopping $5000.00. It is as you can see in the above picture a sight to see once plated and it has plenty of bells and whistles like fole gras and a brioche truffle bun. However when reduced to it's basic elements it is just a very expensive burger (not even any cheese!) . In the end, with the visual tricks and effects reduced to my 37" Vizio HDTV, "Avatar" is just a very expensive ($280 million) movie that takes "Dances With Wolves" and "The New World" themes and gives them a sci-fi twist.
