Must-see...and must-see it 3D.
Most visually impressive film I've ever seen, and I don't know what is the second best.
Story lines will be rather familiar, but all is forgiven.
Mr. Cameron has outdone Titanic, in my view...
Avatar: FuPeg, acting like...well, FuPeg
Everyone I know who has seen Avatar has loved it. A broad at work was telling me it's the best movie her hubby (a scientist) has ever seen. It's on the top of my wife and daughter's list for the next movie THEY go to. Also, I think every critical review I've read about it has been 117% positive. I'm thinking a few noms for Oscars, especially Special Effects or whatever they call that.
As for Vince, I won't see it. I know I'm in the minority but I can't stand those kinda movies. This may sound gay, but give me a chick flick any day of the week.
Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea.

What a coincidence, I just got back from seeing it. Yes, the special effects are eye-popping. It's as if the entire movie was spawned in a petri dish. There were several scenes that figuratively took my breath away. This film has taken cinema to the next level and will be looked back upon as THE film that changed the way movies could be made. This was the first 3D movie that looked great to me and didn't give me a headache.
Beside all that, the story was actually good. Acting was well done even if Sigourney Weaver looked a little lost (this type of movie really needs unknowns in the main roles). Michelle Rodriguez is always a welcome sight, despite the fact she plays for the other team. But that's not the primary eye candy. Vince - stay with me here - you will not believe you are capable of lusting after a 12 foot tall blue alien, but you are. Go see it with your wife and she'll return the favor by accompanying you to the next Patrick Dempsey vehicle.
ANY movie that rakes in a billion dollars in a few weeks deserves a special Academy Award imho, doesn't matter what the members vote, they won the entertainment award, no?
And remember...Things work out best when you make the best of the way things work out.
I saw it what they call "RealD". It is supposed to be less jarring than the Imax version. In fact, this was the first "3D" movie I've seen that didn't find me struggling to see the effects and/or getting headaches. All the others were Imax. RealD is shown on a regular theater screen, not the curved Imax one.
