Avatar Totally Rocks!

Saw Avatar last night with friends and it blew me away!
Cameron is the master of great action scenes, upping the ante with every shot. The two big battles at the end were just incredible.
Pandora itself is amazing. It's a fully realized world - a complex ecosystem.
And then there's the aliens. Neytiri was hot! Saw an interview with Cameron and he told the artists the females had to look "blankable" - too funny.
The story is simple and nothing new, but it's the way Cameron tells it that makes all the difference in the world. And bottom line, the whole movie is a stunning achievement in film making. Using groundbreaking technology, Cameron has created a movie that uses the 3D technology to immerse viewers in the movie completely.
The best movie I've seen all year!

Avatar was mind-boggling! Wish I'd seen the Cameron interview - I heard he's pretty funny.

Really? THAT good - best of the year? Ok, now I gotta check it out. Still haven't seen 2012 yet and wanna get to that one, also.

Best of the year? That's what I've been hearing. The special effects of 2012 were awesome, but the writing and acting were a bit corny in places. I'm looking forward to seeing Avatar in 3D this week.
