I realize I am probably the last person in America who has not seen Avatar - well, that, my friends, has been remedied. In fact, I saw it at the beginning of the week and I was so moved, so amazed, so intrigued that I haven't really been able to say how much I liked it. At least not with any accuracy. It is, as many people have already said, a MUST on the big screen in 3D. The use of 3D was so impressive. The story appealed to my native american heart and the art was simply beautiful.
My friend said it best as we were walking out of the theater, "Well, we don't have to watch the Academy Awards now." Indeed. If you haven't seen this film, you really must. Don't wait.
