    Ok I finally got my butt out and saw Avatar in 3D tonight. I am literally blown away. I knew it would be good, but I can't believe it hasn't been talked about more. That one movie will change the course of how movies are made.

    I have never experienced a feeling like I felt during that movie. It was awe-inspiring. This world seems so surreal right now, I can't even put into words what the movie does to you.

    I know that probably comes off sounding a bit strange, but if you haven't seen this movie in 3D you'd best make it a point to. I don't care if this is your type of movie or not, it has changed the course of movie making.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    As far as movies go, it was decent, but I agree that the technology was really amazing. You feel like you're standing their watching the movie unfold in front of you as opposed to on the screen. There were a number of times when I'd catch myself forgetting I was even at the theater.

    Not talked about more?! Are you living under a rock? I thought it was visually amazing...but let's be honest, it's Pocahontas/Dances With Wolves in space.

    I agree. I was almost disappointed when the movie was over because I had to go back to reality. Definitely one of the best movies I've seen in a long time

    I thought the storyline was better than most people give it credit for, however, I do agree that it isn't life changing in that regard.

    There were numerous times where I felt I was actually part of the movie. It's amazing how the 3D and the way they made that movie move your emotions that way. My whole group came out saying it is the most amazing thing we have ever experienced in our entire lives.

    agreed. The movie was good, but the experience was what made it truly phenomenal

    I wonder how well that will transfer to DVD/Blue-ray. I'm not big on going to the theater but might have to in this case.

    The effects are awesome, but it is nearly word for word "Pocahontas". Crappy movie, good effects.

    Maybe I watch too much SportsCenter (is that possible?), but I really haven't heard much about it other than my friends telling me I needed to go see it.

    I understand where you are coming from on storyline, but it was a "happy, feel good" movie. Kind of hard to give those emotions without making it the way they did don't you think? I think there is a reason so many movies seem alike in that regard.

    this movie was so politically charged, its hard to discuss without it being sent to the cave. I enjoyed the effects, didn't care for the movie. And I can't in good conscience contribute any more money to those people than I already have. I won't be seeing it again or buying the DVD..

    I thought plot was lame and I got a little bored waiting for them to fight again so I could see awesome effects.

    I don't know what made me go see this movie. The previews and reviews told me it would not be good. I went and, well, the best compliment I can give any theater - live or otherwise - is that it carried me away. From 1 minute into that movie, I was spirited away to Pandora. At the end, I "came to" back in my seat in the theater and it seemed as though about 15 minutes had expired. It is amazing, enchanting and totally enthralling. It will capture you and carry you away. I highly recommend it.
