Fun fact: James Cameron has been working on the idea for Avatar for 30 or so years. The last decade has been spent helping to develop the 3D camera technology he used for the movie.

There are some that dislike Avatar because of its supposed themes (environmental, political, religious, anti-feminist, etc). Seriously? It’s a sci-fi epic! You don’t watch movies like that for the supposed themes, but for the special effects, the plot, the characters, etc. Personally, I loved Avatar.
