Last night my boyfriend and I, along with a few other friends, went and saw Avatar.  If I am completely honest, I didn't really have a ton of interest in watching this movie.  I decided to go just because everyone else was and I figured it was something to do.  I didn't really know anything about it other than there were some odd looking creatures that were blue and like 8 or 10 feet tall.  Seemed a little weird and maybe a little too out there for my liking.

But, I am SO glad that I went.  Yes, the movie was long, but it wasn't too long.  It kept me captivated and interested from the very first minute to the very last.  I was in awe with all the stunning visual effects.  In fact, I am still in awe thinking about it a day later. 

If I had to do it all over again I would have gotten popcorn and I would have arrived at the theater earlier in order to get better seats. 

If you don't already know about the plot you can read more about the movie here: http://www.avatarmovie.com/index.html.  I am not going to say anything more about what the movie is about though because I thought going in knowing next to nothing about the storyline enhanced my experience that much more.

In my opinion, it was worth every penny of the $12.25 it cost to see it.  I think this is one movie you defintely do not want to miss out on.

 

Have you seen Avatar yet?  If you have, what are your thoughts on it?  If you haven't seen it, are you planning to?

I'm like you were -- not that interested. But then I remember that I felt that way about Lord of the Rings. My husband had to drag me . . . and I freaking LOVED it. Saw the second and third movies, got the DVDs, watched all the extras. . .

So I'll probably see Avatar. It's just a question of finding the time.

Glad you enjoyed it!

Husband desperately wants to see this and it'll be the first time in years we've been to a theater.

p.s. At first I thought this was going to be a bad review because you refer to it as Avatart in your first sentence. Got a chuckle out of that.

JD: I was the same way with Lord of the Rings! I saw them years after everyone else. I just wasn't that interested. I finally rented the first one and I liked it so much I ended up watching them all in one weekend.

Kathy: Haha! That typo slipped by me, but it was pretty funny.

I hope you both enjoy the movie as much as I did!

I actually wasn't that interested in Avatar either, but I kept hearing good things about it, and I'd never seen a 3D movie before, so I went to see it yesterday. I enjoyed it, and it was fun to try 3D, but I think I actually prefer regular ol' 2D movies.

Glad you enjoyed it too, wil. This was my first 3D experience as well and i think i kind of agree with you. I think my eyes needed time to adjust because it did seem to get better a short while into the movie.
