The best movie I've seen this year. James Cameron has a gift for storytelling, a rich moral palette, and a much-needed unHollywood-like skill for portraying kickass female characters.

Neytiri has no cringing moments; no residual feeling that she could have been written better. She's a gem. We'll see if Zoe Saldana will be nominated for a part done completely in blueface.

Michelle Rodriguez as Trudy is quietly sparkling, absent the usual snarling histronics written for women warriors in film. And Sigourney Weaver never disappoints.

Don't miss this movie on the big screen; I saw it in 3D and after freaking out at the previews, settled in quickly to enjoy the feature. I'll see it again. And again.
