I don't think Avatar was as bad as Verno wants to make it out to be, but it certainly wasn't great cinema. I think of it as "pop entertainment" much like "pop music". Fun to listen to/watch occasionally, but nothing for the history books. The Twilight movies aren't as bad as so many make them out to be either. I was a bit surprised at how little "teen romance" was in them based on their reputation. Once again, they fit the "pop entertainment" role. But whatever, to each their own...
I'm a fan of escapist entertainment as much (more than) anyone. But Avatar was so heavy-handed it bothered even me. The corporate bad guys were so over the top absurdly evil. Might as well have stuck black hats on them all while they were at it. There were zero shades of gray in the movie, not a hint of moral ambiguity. I have no desire to ever watch it a second time.
