Avatar... Great fun
WotW... Once you get past over the smaltz it's not a bad adaption
And most shocking I like all the Matrix movies (sorry)
But Battlefield Earth (overly long like most opera) and The Postman (a bit sentimental, sorry Brin) are best done in your own head
What is really sad is the humungous skipload of great SF which would make storming movies.
