Avatar: Not So Bad?


Despite mixed reviews for its trailer, theme song, video game, and general concept, Avatar could be a serious Golden Globes contender, says Hitfix: "A screening on Monday produced 'very reliable sources' who said that the Hollywood Foreign Press Association was incredibly positive about the film." Also, star Michelle Rodriguez intimates to the L.A. Times that the movie's special effects could be even better than the ones in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace, if you can believe it.
