Todd Malkin’s review published on Letterboxd:
No matter how many times I watch Avatar, I always get that excited little boy feeling inside. People often critique Avatar's simplistic plot, but I think that's part of that feeling. James Cameron may not have the sophistication of a Scorsese or a Kubrick, but he knows how to tell a story. I always feel like I've actually traveled to another planet during the first half of the film; and it's a testament to him that I don't even give it a second thought once the action starts in the second. Maybe he's not reinventing every wheel, but in this case, he's reinventing the way we see cinema. You may consider 3D good or bad, but I think only time will tell. I'm hoping to own my own holodeck before I die -- so keep it coming!
