Re-released to theaters for 2022 to prep people for the December 2022 release of the sequel “Avatar: The Way of Water”. I’ve always thought this was a solid film, though the “white savior” parts of the film are getting more and more difficult to ignore and appreciate. Something interesting about this release is that they upframed it from the normal 30fps to something really jarring like 60 fps, which completely took me out of the film and made the entire thing feel like a cheap european soap opera. I think it looks much better with the native 30 and the only place that a higher frame rate like that belongs is in video games.
