    man, it just doesn't look that good to me in the previews. Am I the only one?

    I guess, it just looked like a new-Star Wars-esque CGI orgy to me, but maybe I'll have to check it out. I'd normally wait for DVD on something I'm shaky on, but this one probably is better on a big screen.

    I agree, in the previews I saw it looked terrible, like one of the new star wars movies, just a bunch of gigantic CGI battle scenes. I have read several things saying hollywood insiders are in awe of it and that its going to be groundbreaking. Not sure which to think at this point but I guess its worth a look on the big screen?

    I'm definitely not over-excited to see it. Seems like a perfect dollar theatre movie, if I still lived in Ames.

    I have absolutely no desire to see this.

    There have got to be plenty of directors who do a great movie and follow it up with a dud. Titanic was huge for a reason. I don't see this one following.

    I miss that place. That is one of the top five things I miss about Ames. It just so nice having somewhere to go that was cheap on a weekend when you had nothing going on.

    Yeah, and perfect for dates for tight wads like myself.

    No, it's still going, but the hour and a half drive from Waterloo negates the economic benifits of using it for a cheap date

    Re: "Avatar" getting rave reviews.

    I'll admit, I'm a little intrigued by it, mainly because I have absolutely no clue what's going on in those previews. Is it supposed to be another planet or something or are they just avatars that go out and fight? I really haven't looked into it.
