James Cameron United States, 2009

Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Avatar

I remember when this came out, everyone thought it was wonderful, amazing, "the best film ever," etc. Now, everyone loves to sound cool by saying it sucks and is "the worst film ever." It's not astounding, or even one of the best, but it's a damn fine work of art, expertly directed and acted, and one of the most involving pictures in a while. Not trying to sound pretentious, but I've held onto that view since 2009.
