Avatar brings to the big screen what The Matrix did back in 1999... The Matrix perfected green-screen shooting and introduced "bullet time". Avatar brings that technological advancement in the form of CGI. Unfortunately it didn't bring a new story along with it. The Matrix left us a question as to whether or not we could all be in a simulated environment. Avatar left me wanting to sing "Colors of the wind" (Dances with Wolves/Pocahontas).
