Have you seen Avatar yet? If not you really should.
K and I on our Wednesday off decided to head to the mall. I had a couple of returns to do and we wanted to catch a mid afternoon movie. We had both heard great things about Avatar and decided that it would be best watched at a IMAX theater. So that is what we did. We grabbed our large popcorn, reeses pieces and a tall drink. We were both a little weary of the two hour and forty minute length but thought that it just might be worth it. Oh it was.
Avatar is a movie that takes place in 2154. A corporation is mining Pandora, a lush, Earth-like moon of a planet. The corporation intends to exploit Pandora’s reserves. Pandora is inhabited by the Na’vi, a blue-skinned species of humanoids with feline characteristics. Physically stronger and taller than humans, the Na’vi live in harmony with Nature, worshiping a mother goddess called Eywa. In an attempt to improve relations with the natives, scientists create human-Na’vi hybrids called avatars, controlled by genetically matched human operators. I won’t go more into the story because it might give something away and I would hate to spoil the movie for someone else.
Do go and see this film. It is amazing. James Cameron took us on a cinematic journey that we had never experienced before. The movie was visually stunning. Incredible. I promise you will not be disappointed.
