Notes on Avatar.
Dad and I saw Avatar yesterday.
I have to say, "visually rich" is not a descriptive enough term to use for this movie. I strongly suggest seeing this flick in 3D, preferably in OmniMax; it changes my perception of what can be done when making movies. I actually almost kind of understand the concept that obsessive whiners are claiming to experience depression when stepping back into the real world after viewing the movie.
But I found that all of Tamara's and LawDog's remarks were true. (Warning: DON'T read LawDog's post if you don't want spoilers. For that matter, don't read this post, if you don't want spoilers.)
As a father of two young girls, I have probably seen more female-oriented Disney movies than the average straight, meat-eating, gun-loving man in his late 30s.
And halfway through Avatar, I knew that I had seen this movie before.
Apparently others agree.
And I have to say that I also noticed something that Pocahontas 3D had in common with District 9:
"And that's how we scatter 'em like roaches." --AvatarWhat is it with over-the-top villains in modern popular S.F. movies?
"I cahn't believe that I get paid to kill the likes of you!" --District 9
