James Cameron United States, 2009

Trevor Tillman's rating of the film Avatar

Pretty much manufactured to be the highest grossing movie ever. Nonetheless, I admire Cameron for making movies that popularize science, and I love that it feels like a Cameron film. I think "Avatar" would have worked better as an R-rated cable mini-series. I wish it took time to weigh the question of what makes a species a person. I thought Vincenzo Natali's "Splice" did that much better and braver.
