This is a cool movie that let you enjoy lots of very well done 3D fx. Cameron took advantage of this technology to make a good show. The CGI characters for the Na'vi are great... It's the first time that I see so good and expressive gestures in faces made by computer. The only "fault" for this movie is that the story is quite simple and not new at all (I'm not talking about the brilliant new planet and its ecosystem and environment). I mean, really this is a mix between "Dances with Wolves", "Pocahontas" and "Star Trek" although very well filmed. So i felt a kind of "déjà-vu", but anyway, the movie is great.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

Number 9 (Nine)

I was waiting for a long to see this movie since I saw the original short film made by the same director Shane Acker in 2005, and although the film is not as good as I hoped, the result it's pretty interesting. It's a cool experiment about the "stitch-punk" that I really loved and you can feel that Tim Burton (who is the producer) is behind it. The technical animation is good, the story is slightly simple and a little bit prudish sometimes, but I enjoyed.

My score: 8 (out of 10)

Cell 211 (Celda 211)

Without a doubt this is one of the best thrillers that I saw last year. The story is good, the tension is good, the performance is good... Really, except a little detail almost all the movie is very good.... Summarizing... it's a brilliant movie and a good example to show to some of the whining people of the Spanish cinema that having good ideas and creativity let you make good movies and compete without spending a lot of money!

My score: 9 (out of 10)

Planet 51

This is a cool bet on the computer animation that the Spanish cinema business made. The result is funny and the graphical quality is absolutely impeccable. The animators made a brilliant work and you can feel that they hired the original writer of Shrek to make the script. This film is perfect to take your nephews (if you need these kind of excuses to see it ;)

My score: 8 (out of 10)
