Review: Sanctum

An underwater cave diving team experiences a life-threatening crisis during an expedition to the unexplored and least accessible cave system in the world.

I tend to like movies like these, I’m always curious about caves such as these and long dives. I always wonder what drives people to go to caves such as these, and it looked interesting since it was produced by James Cameron. Something goes wrong in the cave and they have to survive through the ordeal. I expected this movie to be better and a little bit more exciting, honestly I prefer the movie The Descent over Sanctum, you get thrilling feeling as well as dealing with Monsters.

Review: Avatar

Avatar is the story of an ex-Marine who finds himself thrust into hostilities on an alien planet filled with exotic life forms. As an Avatar, a human mind in an alien body, he finds himself torn between two worlds, in a desperate fight for his own survival and that of the indigenous people.

So much build up to this movie, all I knew that I was curious to see what the hype was all about, the trailers don’t tell you much at all. We didn’t watch it in 3-D because those glasses give me a headache so we went to watch the normal movie, when booking online on ReelCinenma in Dubai Mall every theater was packed, we went for a late night movie. From the start of the movie the graphics were fantastic, better then I even imagined but that was just beginning. Jake Sully is the first marine to control the Avatars, a biological combination of human DNA and the indigenous creatures of the planet. Jumping into the planet of Pandora there is so much to see, so many different creatures, an amazing flow of scene after scene, you are mesmerized by it. For 162 minutes of the movie my eyes were stuck to the screen for the graphics isn’t the only thing that holds your attention, the depth of the story pulls you in, at every point you are surprised my something new, the story keeps developing, so many peaks that you are kept at full attention. This story must have took a long time to develop, there is so much to it, the language development, the creatures, all the scenes, and a great combination of actors, a perfect fit. My expectations were blown out of the water, and this is a movie that everyone should see.
