The science of Avatar

As a companion piece to my blog entry the other day about how 3D films work, check out this article on film site Ain’t It Cool News. In it, a regular AICN contributor who also happens to be an astrophysicist grades the science inAvatar. The follow-up at the end is excellent too, as fans and people on the production defend some of the film aspects that he did find fault with.

Bottom line: it’s great when filmmakers like James Cameron apply some credible scientific speculation to their sci-fi.
