Yah I finally saw AVATAR today

And it was in digital 3-D too, which if at all possible is very sincerely the best way to watch this movie.

As for what I thought of Avatar...

...I can't remember the last movie that left me feeling so many shades of conflicted.

I'm going to see it again tomorrow night with friend and fellow blogger Steven Glaspie. Between now and then I'm thinking enough of it will "sink in" and maybe I can absorb the story as much as I've already beheld the astonishing visual effects (easily the best I have ever seen in a film). I'll attempt a real review afterward.

But for now: yeah, it's good. It's very good. But not without some issues.

I really could not find Avatar that is something like a cinema classic. it's a visual experience but not even a close great film like Star Wars.

I'm sorry Chris... but you haven't seen Avatar until you've seen it in IMAX 3-D. I'm very blessed to work at a movie theatre that shows it in both Digital 3-D and IMAX 3-D, and have taken advantage of said fact and seen it in both formats for free. If it is at all possible, I strongly urge you to drive the extra distance to see it in IMAX 3-D. You will not be disappointed.

I second that emotion Cassie. It's almost like a sensory overload... So much to take in.
