The number 1 movie of the century is Avatar.
The number 2 movie fo the century is Avengers Endgame.

I watched Avatar again at home as it's been 10 years since I last watched it and wondering why it's number one movie of the century when there were no 22 movie introduction or prequels like Marvel's.

The following are spoilers for those who still haven't watched Avatar I back in 2009!

In the last part of Avatar, the hero transferred his mind from human to Avatar body. Why would he do that? Does it mean his human body would be destroyed, or is it transferrable either way?

Just curious. If there was a human body form serving as Avatar by say dwarf like aliens. How could you recognize an Avatar human from a real one? :)

Also is there an Avatar novel? What is the rumor or guess of what would be the storyline in part 2 to 5? Maybe wars between earth and the blue skin planet?

Great movies aren't measured by their ability and success at spawning sequels, they are measured by the level of acting, the believability in the world creation and the test of time. Some great movies have dropped in the listings because we look at them with our current vision and not how novel they were when they first came out.

A good example is how B/W movies fare in this age of colorful fast action, cgi creations believability. Basically B/W movies relied more on character development and close shots of the actors with great shading but sometimes the props get in the way and ruin the effect now (like clunky computers and walkie talkie like cell phones seem so out of place in contemporary settings.)

I think Avatar was a great movie with a lot of novelty that told a story of technology overrunning more primitive peoples and how they can't really fight back against it without great sacrifice. We know this from history but people shy away from the sins of the past but can absorb the message through a science fiction setting.

I thought the 'why' seemed pretty straightforward: trade your crippled human body for a superior Na'vi one and a love interest, why wouldn't you?

As for what happens to his human body, I guess we'll find out when Avatar II comes out sometime around 2021.

In the movie the company approved the replacement of his feet with new ones so he was supposed to be fixed. About the ezla or spirit networks in the trees. Only voices can be heard. It would be nice for them to have forms. In real life. I have a friend who can see nature spirits in trees and forests. I guess they being network of some kind is great idea. I cant wait to see part 2.

I believe the OP is referring to box office receipts as the measure.

....It's worth noting that for headline-making purposes the numbers are never inflation adjusted, but those numbers are more relevant and are available.

He had rebelled against the company, his conscience taking hold and the realisation that what the company was doing was wrong. he wasn't getting his legs back. he'd made his choice, and found that he could leave his crippled, diminutive body which couldn't breathe the air and move to his big, strong, blue body which could.

The minds of the naa'vi are stored in the "brain" of the planet, and their consciousness, so they could, in theory, have someone who is connected to the tree hallucinate a vision of those stored. A conscious hallucination, if you will - the planet-brain is telling his eyes he's seeing something, rather than his own jumbled brain creating it.
