I went out tonight with the lads (Lionhearted and JoshuaCorp), and we saw Avatar (2d version).

Absolutely stunning. What incredible graphics! If you've ever enjoyed the light and colour of a Maxfield Parrish painting, you will love this movie. It is, in my reckoning, the most beautiful movie ever! It is a sci-fi rendition of an old storyline (Dances with Wolves), but well written for that too. Read more about it here: [en.wikipedia.org]

As for spiritual values, the mentalfundalist christians will immediately despise it for it's tree-hugging morality and nature-worship. Don't let them put you off...it is a story of evil vs good; man's greed vs nature's beauty.



Go check it out for yourself! grinning smiley

I agree, really lovely film!

We saw it in 3D a week or so ago, but I don't think it makes a lot of difference to be honest...

For the first few minutes the 3D effect is stunning, everyone's "ooh"ing and "aah"ing and "wow"ing...but after that it didn't register with me really - like my brain made the adjustment or something. Also I did feel vaguely travel sick and headachy at one point, but that might have been due to something else.

I do wonder about the 3D thing though - when we watch a 2D film/TV, do we really ever feel like it's not "real" enough? It never ccrosses my mind - I just get absorbed with it and "see" it in my head as if it were 3D. To me, adding the extra dimension was over-stimulating. Could just be me and my brain lol!

Interesting comment about the 3D, Susie. Many here have reportedly been feeling travel sick at the 3D version too, although the cinemas said that nobody actually got sick. I have had the same experience when I used to play 3D games on the computer.

I'm going to one of the major cities next week for a conference, where I can watch it in 3D with wifey grinning smiley

Hey Thanks ole boy for the invite.

Personally I really like Scifi stuff.

My perceptions of this movie - really EXCELLENT GRAPHICS!! - Loved the animals, the effects of the forests and the story line. However the dialogue was a bit "weak" in some areas. I really hope they get back the money they paid to make it!!

Old story as Onyx said - I think kept bugging the guys with - "WOW see that", "yeh right on that one" all the way through it.

An M (16yrs) rating - however the youngest i was saw about 4yrs!

Wow! I can't be absolutely certain, but pretty sure it's a 12 over here. Don't recall anything that would be offensive or too scary for kids around that age. Maybe I've forgotten something?

I FINALLY SAW IT! It was more incredible than I imagined. I was crying, or laughing and crying at the same time through the whole movie. Even better I got to see like I wanted to.... with my brother. smiling smiley
