Avatar Without a doubt Avatar is the best movie I have ever seen. It may not have had the best story ever told, or even the best acting performances of our generation. Who cares! What it did have was something I have never seen before, it is is absolutely jaw-dropping. Even if you don't like the Sci-Fi realm you still have to see it. I really believe it will take movie-making in a whole different direction. Avatar is more than a movie it is a spectacle.
