what a moron
let me guess, you also like movies like spiderman, x-man, transformers etc.?
Dark Knight has better rating at both Rotten Tomatoes and at IMDB than Avatar. Haven't checked other websites. The fact that it's based on a comic doesn't diminish its value as a movie.
I haven't seen Avatar yet so I won't make statements on which is better. However, most reviews I've read about Avatar praise the special effects but not the story. A movie based on a story will stand the test of time much better.
I don't know why you're dissing the Hurt Locker, it was amazing. Great intensity and different from most American films.
I think the past few years have been poor movie years. Slumdog Millionnaire winning and now Avatar as a favorite (after winning the Golden Globe).
