Andrew's Blu-ray Review: With James Cameron’s ‘AVATAR’ it has turned one man’s dream of the films, into a trippy joy ride about the end of life, but our film going life included. Several decades in the dreaming and more than four years in the actual making, the film is a swan song to the natural world that was largely produced with software, an exploration of the invisible world of the spirit filled with a James Cameron rock ’em, sock ’em action. Created to conquer hearts, minds, history books and box-office records, the film, one of the most expensive in history, the jungle drums thump and are is a glorious adventure and blissfully deranged.
The story behind the story, including a production budget estimated to top $230 million, and James Cameron’s future-shock ambitions for the medium have already begun to settle into myth (a process partly driven by the publicity, certainly). Every filmmaker is something of a visionary, just by virtue of the medium. But James Cameron, who directed the mega melodrama ‘Titanic’ and, more notably, several of the most influential science-fiction films of the past few decades ‘The Terminator,’ ‘Aliens’ and ‘The Abyss,’ is a filmmaker whose ambitions transcend a single movie or mere stories to embrace cinema as an art, as a social experience and a shamanistic ritual, one still capable of producing the big WOW effect.
The scale of the film, which brings you into a meticulous and brilliantly coloured alien world for a fast 2 hours 46 minutes, factors into that wow factor again. Its scope is evident in an early scene on a spaceship and the year is 2154, where the passengers, including a paraplegic ex-Marine, Jake [Sam Worthington] a gruffly sensitive heartthrob, are being roused from a yearlong sleep before landing on a distant inhabited moon, Pandora. Jake is woken by an attendant floating in zero gravity, one of many such aides. As Jake himself glides through the bright cavernous space, you know you’re not in Kansas anymore, as someone soon quips (a nod to ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ James Cameron’s favourite film).
It doesn’t take Jake long to feel the good vibes. Jake is himself an avatar because he’s both a special being and an embodiment of an idea, namely that of the hero’s journey. What initially makes Jake unusual is that he has been tapped to inhabit a part-alien, part-human body that he controls, like a puppeteer, from its head to its prehensile tail. Like the rest of the human visitors who’ve made camp on Pandora, he has signed on with a corporation that’s intent on extracting a valuable if mysterious substance from the moon called unobtainium, a great whatsit that is an emblem of humanity’s greed and folly. With his avatar, Jake will look just like one of the natives, the Na’vi, a new identity that gives the film its plot turns and politics. But, standing in their way is an inhospitable atmosphere and a very formidable race of native people called the Na'vi, who just happens to live on top of the riches deposit of this entire prized mineral.
In order to infiltrate the natives, various humans are enlisted to be "drivers" of artificially grown avatars that have been created in a lab by blending human DNA, with Na'vi DNA to form a hybrid. To complete the process, human inhabitants are put into a pod like device where they are able to project their consciousness into the Na'vi avatar body, and thus, essentially, become one of them. This is where Mr. Cameron really weaves his movie magic as the Na'vi actors are brought to life on screen by a combination of CGI animation and human actors to form the electrifying, 12-foot, blue-toned humanoids, which are for the most part, fairly realistic looking.
There are also a lot of strange and wonderful creatures that are quite visually spellbinding, as is the Pandorian landscape and ecology that comes alive with floating mountains, glowing plants and ferocious animals. Perhaps the most compelling aspect of ‘AVATAR’ to me, was not the eye-popping visual effects, but rather the very reverent and sympathetic focus on the spirituality of the native Na'vi's. They are for the most part, a peaceful species, yet, at the same time, they are fierce warriors. They have a deeply spiritual and symbiotic relationship with the forest they live in and the nature of their native planet Pandora.
They also possess profound wisdom that all life is connected as one and that they are a part of that connection, too. This aspect of the Na'vi people is reinforced throughout the film, again and again, as they are shown bonding with the trees, the plants, the animals and the forest. Even if they have to defend themselves from a predatory animal, they say a prayer after they have killed it. This reverent and respectful homage to the spiritual nature of indigenous extra-terrestrials is, ultimately, the most interesting and surprising element of ‘AVATAR’ by far. But, all in all, for nearly three hours of screen time, ‘AVATAR’ is a highly entertaining extravaganza that looks even more spectacular in the 3D visual mode. This is one absolutely beautiful film! It sets new heights for special effects, cinematography, and artistic set design.
Regarding the technology used for shooting ‘AVATAR’ was filmed in StereoScopic 3D, the Fusion Camera System was used. Having been developed by Vince Pace and James Cameron, their Fusion 3D HD system involves the use of two customised cameras, and reportedly James Cameron used a specifically designed system all on its own just for ‘AVATAR.’ According to an article in Popular Mechanics, this camera's viewfinder also offered the filmmaker the opportunity to watch the live actors as they are integrated by the system in a provided CGI environment, as it senses its position on a motion-capture stage.
Blu-ray Video Quality – The video quality on this release is in the full 1080p awesome encoded image in the 1.78:1 aspect ratio. It is very much worth noting that this video presentation has been THX Certified. It's obvious, as noted that the "3D Quality" was shot in true StereosSopic 3D on a very advanced camera system. That translates into this having one amazing visual presentation either in 3D or 2D. James Cameron has mentioned in press conferences that this choice was made as to offer more visual depth in long and open shots, and more of the "claustrophobic" effect in close-ups. Another thought to ponder regarding the film having been filmed in StereoScopic 3D, even when you pause the film, you do see not only what could otherwise be considered motion blur, but the slight dual-focus you may expect from a 3D presentation. Not to be left unmentioned is the equally valuable work of those from the Stan Winston Studios who provided many of the physical on-screen character effects. The amount of "3D pop" in 2D is excellent and you get a really great sense of depth and such even in the 2D presentation of the film. The 2D version of the film certainly has a few pros to viewing the film in 3D, with the availability to see so much of the detail, the beautiful saturation, and a solid black level. With no disrespect to the audio presentation, you will perhaps find yourself more taken up with this phenomenal video quality so much that the audio track may be only background elements to you upon your first viewing. It should really come as no surprise, this once again earns itself a perfect "5 Star Rating" for overall video quality and is still the utter definition of "reference quality" in terms of Hi-Definition visuals. In either 3D or 2D, you'll be amazed by the video quality found on this release.
Blu-ray Audio Quality – The audio quality on this release is presented in 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. First, note that just like the video presentation, this audio presentation too has been THX Certified. As this audio track simulates the fictional world of Pandora, the 5.1 setup offers an amazing audible performance that is well representing of the story's sci-fi and ethereal nature, making it nearly impossible to decide on where to start in describing this presentation. One of the first things that will surely charm your ears is the original music composed by James Horner, perfectly conveying the tones of both worlds; the humans' camp with a more hearty and war-like brass sound, and the natural world of the Na'vi, translating a more tribal and passive sound. Composer James Horner was also responsible for the original music on the films ‘Apocalypto,’ ‘Troy,’ ‘Titanic,’ ‘Apollo 13’ and ‘Braveheart’ to name just a few. In the scene involving Jake`s avatar being captured by the tribe, the background chatter of the surrounding Na'vi people fills the soundscape, providing 360 degrees of voices that simulate the feeling of truly standing within the action. This for instance is a great example of the superb usage of all the channels in the 5.1 setup, however, when it comes to this release, generally it is not even necessary to pinpoint a specific scene, as one could basically scan through the film on Blu-ray and be impressed. All general sound effects are impressive, offering multiple channel usage, panning at times, and simply a general clarity of sound. You've really got to hand it to those behind the efforts in the sound department here in having created the sounds of imaginative fictional creatures, sci-fi machinery of multiple sorts, and even a setting that, though merely portraying the paradise-like world of Pandora, is itself absolutely glowing with subtle sound. The dialogue is presented perfectly on this release, as both the live-action organic recordings from the live actors on set, and the presumably voiced-over dialogue of the Na'vi characters. Overall this is once again just downright impressive, almost as much as the visuals in terms of sound mix and very much worthy of deeming "demo material" in terms of audio as well. ‘AVATAR’ in its much anticipated retail release to Blu-ray 3D earns a perfect "5 Star Rating" for audio quality just as the film scored in the debut release and re-release both of which were 2D. I'm happy to report that much, I really am, and I think the fans will once again be very, very pleased with this awesome stunning audio presentation.
Finally, it remains to be seen whether a title of even this astronomically high profile can push 3D hardware sales so long after its general release and after the initial hype behind 3D TV have said things have died down a bit, but I disagree, as I love any 3D Blu-ray discs. While ‘AVATAR’ remains a big favourite of mine, and maybe Blu-ray fans have perhaps moved on to fresher releases like ‘The Avengers’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ and may see this ‘AVATAR’ release as another money grab on the way to the so called up and coming "Ultimate Version" and we really mean it this time! No really, this is the one to buy! It really boils down to this: ‘AVATAR’ fans now have the 3D version to watch that doesn't cost an arm and a leg to acquire, and folks who already have the Panasonic branded release don't need to buy again, unless a new artwork and the slipcover is brought out. Who knows what future editions will hold, other than that there will be future editions and that there probably will be new material in them. As it is, this is currently the best way to watch ‘AVATAR’ in 3D in the home and the price doesn't really hurt. Certainly one can see why ‘AVATAR’ is an important and destined-to-be prominent film through the rest of the history of the medium not only as a clear-cut fan-favourite but also as a hallmark visual effects movie that will be remembered alongside the likes of ‘Star Wars,’ ‘The Last Starfighter,’ ‘Jurassic Park,’ the ‘Lord of the Rings’ trilogy and ‘Toy Story.’ Overall the bonus material here is a huge disappointment but let's face it, you've most likely bought the "Extended Collector's Edition" Blu-ray Disc set that actually contains bonus materials. That release also contained two other cuts of the film; whereas this only contains the original 162 minute theatrical cut. Sometime soon maybe we'll see a fourth and final release in both 3D and 2D that contains those other two cuts of the film and bonus materials but for now if you want to see those you'll just have to go back to or consider purchasing the "Extended Collector's Edition" 3-disc set on Blu-ray. I saw ‘AVATAR’ in the cinema in 3D and was sort of impressed, but now seeing it in this amazing 3D Blu-ray awesome disc, it looks even more superior and I am glad I waited for this 3D Blu-ray version to be released and I have been more than impressed and now it is a great honour to now having this added to my ever expanding 3D Blu-ray Collection. Very Highly Recommended!
