James Cameron’s ‘Avatar’ rakes in rave reviews…

Full SPOILER FREE review from Alex Billington of FirstShowing here

Our previous posts on ‘Avatar’ here.

TheTelegraph has a roundup:

Here are a selection of some of the previews:

Hollywood Reporter: “A dozen years later, James Cameron has proven his point: He is king of the world … The only question is: How will Cameron ever top this?”

Screen International: “It’s an unprecedented marriage of technology and storytelling which is on the whole remarkably successful.”

Variety: “Twelve years after “Titanic,” which still stands as the all-time B.O. champ, Cameron delivers again with a film of universal appeal that just about everyone who ever goes to the movies will need to see.”

The Times: “Avatar is an overwhelming, immersive spectacle. The state-of-the-art 3D technology draws us in, but it is the vivid weirdness of Cameron’s luridly imagined tropical otherworld that keeps us fascinated.”

The Sun: “…make sure you can say you were there when the future of cinema began.”

Alex Billington of First Showing via Twitter: “James Cameron is a freakin’ genius! I can’t say much but wow, I loved it. Avatar was phenomenal, pretty much blew me away.”

The Guardian: ..”.it looked amazing and that the story was gripping.”

A bootleg gag reel from J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek movie, which is presumably on the upcoming DVD/Blu-ray, has found its way onto the Internet, and before Paramount got it pulled from YouTube, it wound up on JoBlo.com.

The reel of outtakes from Abrams’ hit movie contains the usual blown lines, some impolite language, joshing around on set, some dancing, some funny faces, the usual. The Star Trek DVD/Blu-ray drops on Nov. 1
