Tonight we went to see Avatar at the IMAX theater in 3D and I only have this to say:
GO SEE THIS MOVIE, IN 3D, DO NOT DELAY, DO NOT WAIT FOR THE DVD, GO SEE IT NOW.
This is the best movie I’ve seen in, oh, I don’t know how long. It’s beautiful. It holds you enthralled for the entire 2 hours and 45 minutes. I want to go back and see it again and I NEVER feel like that after a movie. I will even go back and fight the crowds at the IMAX, that’s just how good this movie is.
Up until tonight I always thought that 3D was overrated. All of the previews I’d seen were just full of gratuitous 3D nonsense that added nothing to the story at all. This was different. Once your eyes get used to the 3D glasses and movement, you really lose yourself in the movie and it’s just an all encompassing experience. After seeing it this way I think seeing the movie on DVD at home would be a let down. So take my advice, GO SEE THIS MOVIE ON A BIG SCREEN IN 3D. TODAY.
I think I have to write James Cameron a thank you email. Thank you for this movie.
Oh yeah, the dinner part. We got out of the movie at 8pm and there wasn’t much around for food so we stopped at McDonald’s. We NEVER eat McD’s. But there we were. I think we were still in a daze from the movie. After the delicious dinner we drove back home to sit in our chilly living room. I hope I dream of Pandora tonight.
