Avatar- Movie beyond imagination

Posted by brainfoldb4u on December 27, 2009

Boxing day, to stay away from routine we decided to watch a movie. I initially thought of Robin Hood . I am highly hyped of the fact that its directed by Riley Scott and yeah the same combination that rocked box office for several months and even years (Gladiator).  Synopsis of the film is as follows

Robin Hood Synopsis

“The untitled Robin Hood adventure chronicles the life of an expert archer, previously interested only in self-preservation, from his service in King Richard’s army against the French. Upon Richard’s death, Robin travels to Nottingham, a town suffering from the corruption of a despotic sheriff and crippling taxation, where he falls for the spirited widow Lady Marian (Blanchett), a woman skeptical of the identity and motivations of this crusader from the forest. Hoping to earn the hand of Maid Marian and salvage the village, Robin assembles a gang whose lethal mercenary skills are matched only by its appetite for life. Together, they begin preying on the indulgent upper class to correct injustices under the sheriff.”

But once after looking for session timing i realized the release schedule is May 2010. Disappointing but don’t want really wanted to step away from watching a movie.  So we decided to watch Avatar 3D in Greater union.

James Cameron’s Avatar is the most entertaining movie of the year with enthralling cinematic experience. Seems he took almost a decade to  release such an incredible movie. Mr Cameron’s attention to detail and the way he presented every single characters, place, and the movie itself is mind blogging.  In my view i put this movie as “Movie beyond imagination”.

Simply put,  Avatar is the story of Jake Sully, a  marine, who replaces his brother on a secret mission to tackle the  colony of beings that sit on the planet of Pandora, Pandora has some precious ore, that sells at a ridiculous amount. When Jake learns the ways of the Na’ vi, his feelings and learnings will put him and the people he trusts in dangerous jeopardy. Avatar is not generated from any myth or novel. But i find it speaks truth about the connections that we living being have all together.

Along with the best effects minds in the business.  Joe Letteri is technical team lead for visual effects says “For the first several months, we all fell flat on our faces,” recalls Neville Page, the film’s lead creature designer. “Then one day, Jim said, ‘Alright, I’m going to draw a picture for you guys and then you can finish it,’ and that became the blueprint for (lead female alien) Neytiri and so for the rest of the Na’vi.”

The story takes place three decades after MNC’s established a mining colony on Pandora ( an environment with hostile natives also called as blue monkeys) . Multinational mining companies wanted to get rid of those native people with the help of human proxies and use the precious ore the Pandora own.  A group of biologists are working as military proxies to certain a negotiation term with Pandora.

Jake Sully is a disabled former Marine who takes his late twin brother’s place in the avatar program, a sort of bone thrown to the scientific community by the corporation in hopes that the study of Pandora and its population might create a more peaceful planet. Jake with the help of science somehow manages to get into Pandora and made them believe he is one among them.

The forest so imagined Pandora is well modeled with flying dragons, magic trees, feral dogs, rain forest with the concept of highly advanced spiritualism. After 6 months military with sully’s interpretations military were able to design Na’vi defense capabilities to attack Na’vi’s and capture the land by destroying the trees which Na’vi values as their spiritual god.

Military commanders and mining commercials came to a point realizing that sally fell in love with Neytiri and would not be significant in getting their task done in time. So military started to attack Na’vi and with the help of sully and his biologist team natives were able to fight with military and stay in their own land.

Distributors 20th Century Fox say it has earned more than $350m (£217m) in the US and more than $670m (415m) in the rest of the world in only 17 days. Ahead of it are Titanic ($1.8bn; £1.1bn), The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King ($1.12bn; £695m) and Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest ($1.07bn; £664m)

It is a must watch life time movie and i would recommend viewers to watch it in 3D if possible to enjoy the fullest animation experience.

Lead Scriptures of this movie  are:

Director/Screen writter:  James Cameron

Producer: James Cameron, Jon Landau

Cast: Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Sigourney Weaver, Stephen Lang, David Moore, Laz Alonso

Production companies: 20th century Fox with Dune entertainment and ingenious film partners

Believe it or not

Dooms Day

Concept of dooms day “December 21 2012″certainly a debatable heading and there are many controversies either to believe it or not. There are predictions from oracles and other experts that December 21 of 2012 will be a certain different day to us i did little bit research on it and thought this below information is worth sharing. The reason could be a human effect or natural disaster. From Chinese theories to scientific predictions the most likely date is the year 2012.

SCIENTIFIC EXPERTS from around the world are predicting that few years from now, all life on Earth could well come to an end. Some are arguing that will be humans that would set it off. Others believe that a natural phenomenon will be the cause. And the religious folks are saying it will be God himself who would press the stop button. The following are some likely arguments about why the world would end by the year 2012..


The Atom Masher: European scientists have been constructing the worlds largest particle accelerator. Phenomenally it is a tunnel of 27km designed to smash atoms together to find out the reason behind the universe tick. But this monster gadget has caused  notable concern with experts suggesting that it’s probably a bad idea to turn it on and they are arguing that it will propel the black holes and cause a deadly result.

Largest atom smasher
Mayan’s Mystery calendar: With detailed astronomical records and precise track recorded calculations of  cycles of planets and stars as they travel around in their orbits Mayan believers are saying that we are now in the 4th cycle as per Maya. cycle said to have started in 3114BC and lasts for 5126 years which ends in 2012.  After the end of fourth cycle it is believed to have a beginning of fifth cycle and mayan’s said to consider it as the ancient wisdom or the new era for mankind. Precisely an article states as:

apocalyptic test: the classic maya  millennium,  on December 23, 2012 (based on our Western Gregorian calendar). That’s when the Maya calendar will turn over to all zeros — by the long count. (By the way, the Maya use of the zero by at least A.D. 200 is one of their key claims to fame, since the zero was not introduced to the West until the insights of Aryabhata, a fifth-century Indian mathematician, reached Europe.) The Maya millennium comes 5,126 years after the creation, which, by their reckoning, occurred precisely on August 11, 3114 B.C. But we probably shouldn’t worry too much about this, since Pascal, the most famous ruler of Palenque, confidently predicted that his accession would be commemorated on October 15 in A.D. 4772 (Gregorian time).

Sun Strom’s: Solar experts from around the world who check the sun have made a stunning discovery that our sun is in a bit of strife. They claim that the energy output of the sun is, cyclic, and it’s should have been placed in the middle of a period of relative stability.  But the fact is our earth is under the bombardment of recent solar storms and receiving great amount of energy as radiation. And this powerful energy is destroying human made satellites. and experts predicts this bombardment will get worsen and will reach its zenith by 2012 December.
The physicists: Physicists at Berkley University have crunched the numbers. They have determined that the earth is well overdue for a major catastrophic event. Even worse, they are claiming that their calculations prove that we are all going to die, very soon. They are also saying that their prediction comes with a certainty of 99 per cent; and 2012 just happens to be the best guess about when it occurs.
Earths magnetic: Earth is surrounded by a magnetic field that shields us from most of the sun’s radiation. What you might not know is that the magnetic poles we call North and South have a nasty habit of swapping places every 750,000 years or so — and now we are about 30,000 years overdue. Scientists have noted that the poles are drifting apart roughly 20-30 km each year, faster than ever before, which points to a pole-shift being right around the corner. While the pole shift is under way, the magnetic field is disrupted and will eventually disappear, sometimes for up to 100 years. The result is enough UV outdoors to crisp your skin in seconds, killing everything it touches.

Super Volcano : Yellow stone national park in united states famous for its thermal springs states the reason as earth is sitting on top of the worlds biggest volcano and geological experts are says that yellow stone volcano has pattern of erupting every 65000 years and we are over due by many years for an explosion that will fill the earth mostly by ash and smoke. This will also block the sun and plug the earth into a frozen winter that considered to last for 15 thousand years. Pressure under the volcano is building its temperature   in a steady phase and it may erupt as big bang on December  2012.

Hi, Welcome and thank you for your time with Brainfold’s Web page. …

I am going to use this blog to share information on current happening with internet world along with its new technologies, reviewing it features and other useful bunch of information on anti hacking and proactive development. You may find articles or blogs ranging from general security reviews, product reviews, cool technologies, Security assessment techniques and tools and so on. Open source is always my favorite and thought if having a separate column to discuss about its uniqueness. I am trying to emphasize more on open tools in the internet and discussing more about it features. Also i will use this blog personal column to express my ideas and discussion that could feed the wider community with topics for further discussion or debate.

Its a never-ending learning process each and every day we learn something new while sharing that those we have learnt or experimented brings the real joy and i am sure its the same for every one. I call upon my like-minded friends from similar industry and working knowledge to contribute their input which eventually is the main motive behind this site “BrainFold”. To say little bit more about the name i have chosen for this web page “brainfold”, it is basically derived from a concept/myth that we humans use only 10 percent of our brain or at least we understand its functionalities only by 10%. A study by Melbourne scientists has provided the first direct evidence that differences in the way the surface of the human brain is folded could be an indication of how smart a person is. Some how that article grabbed my interest and thus the name brainfold came into my mind. Kindly drop any time to see what i have been up to, you will never know you may find it interesting…
