This Just In: Avatar Is Pretty Good
I went and saw James Cameron’s Avatar yesterday evening with Jennifer. That movie is quite the visual odyssey, and it shows exactly how far movies and special effects have come from just a few years ago. In 2005, Star Wars Episode III was raved about as the pinnacle of CG achievement. Avatar blows that right out of the water. And despite the similarities to other movies like Dances With Wolves and Pocahontas, it stands on its own as a marvelous and beautiful piece of cinema. I highly recommend it to anyone and everyone. If you don’t go and see it in theatres, you’re missing out. This was a movie meant to be enjoyed in the darkness of a theatre with 3D glasses and a tub of popcorn (or in my case, a box of M&Ms).
I’ll try to squeeze in time between football and homework to get the Discovery review done. Don’t be too razzed if it doesn’t happen, though.
