i saw it in imax 3D and it was absolutely epic. the whole 3d experience with the surround sound and visuals popping at you made it really feel like you were literally in pandora. this is basically the jurassic park of the new millennium, you know, the blockbuster movie that you just have to see in the theaters when it first comes out.

with the amount of technology/visual effects invested in this movie, george lucas will be definitely lose some sleep over this.

11/10

Dances of Wolves + Last of the Mohicans +

Laputa + Princess Mononoke + Future Boy Conan, Typical Miyazaki diatribe ie people are killing earth +

some Armored Core for good measure, the aircrafts reminds me of Future Boy Conan.

I watched the Imax 3D.. the technology is getting more mature. I think it can save the film industry, since it is hard to replicate the effect on a personal computer.

PS + Celine Dion.. thankfully only at the credits

Why? ILM did a lot of the scenes for Avatar.. I am pretty sure there is a R2D2 in one of the scenes somewhere just like in Star Trek.

I'm actually sure George Lucas will be sleeping better after making all that money by helping with the digital effects. I'm very interested in what Cameron will do with Battle Angel A.I.

Awesome movie visually, really want to see it in Imax, also...my friend was late so I got stuck with a shitty side theatre seat and felt like that took away from the experience.

But goooooooooood god I love the special effects

That's pretty cool. I didn't know that Weta turned to ILM in order to meet their deadlines. I guess we'll be expecting Star Wars in 3D in the near future (since Lucas keeps tinkering with the SW episodes every decade).

it's all 3D throughout the film which was a whole different experience. i'm curious to see how it looks on regular HD film though.

I personally thought it was horrible..
Sure the graphics were cool but there are tons of movies that have sweet graphics.
I actually started to fall asleep after about an hour and a half..
I can see why ppl would think its awesome.. I just thought the movie was predicable and the story sorta sucked..

Graphics were amazing, but I have to agree with Penner on the storyline. It was really predictable and simple.... I guess it made the movie easy to follow and watch. Overall I think it was a well spent 500 million$.

8.5/10

^ movie has been hard to catch without buying the tickets way in advance.. I managed to catch the IMAX 3D showing at Strawberry hill (after arriving at 6pm at Richmond Silvercity to find that the next 3 show times were sold out until 11pm). Strawberry hill in delta actually had a pretty decent theater.. the chairs were amazingly comfortable.. and I think its slightly cheaper going there too

AVATAR...wow just wow...simply amazing....no word can describe it...best movie Ive ever seen...i was stoned as fuck when i saw it in imax and i gotta say this movie made my eyes cum for the whole 3 hours. fucking legit movie to see.Your eyes will orgasm all over the place. The aliens are the best CGI characters ever made, several times I had to tell myself that they weren't real................totally worth the money


oh btw if you guys who want to watch 3D IMAX, you need to buy the tickets online. Or else you will have a hard time buying the tickets at the theater unless you go there hours earlier before the show starts

some theaters do not offer online sale though...only theaters with the skip the box office line logo have that option

There were points in the movie where I thought to myself "Fuck, this story is retarded." ("Unobtainium"? REALLY?!) but it was a decent telling of a very usual story. The Last Samurai...Dances with Wolves...all the same.

However, for the entire two and a half hours, there wasn't a scene that didn't look spectacular. You just think to yourself "WOW!" no matter what you're looking at on screen. There's a lot of dialogue but it is entertaining. There are certainly scenes thrown in there simply as an exercise in 3D cinematography but I've never seen anything that looks that good before.

Strangely, the main female character...I found her performance amazing, which is weird because she isn't actually...there. If that was a person, we'd be talking Oscar.

The look of the movie is amazing. If this is the future, I can't wait. However, I don't think this particular movie will stand up in the future if this technology is used on a better script because right now, this is only a good movie because it looks amazing.

I LOVED it. Really well made and looked awesome in 3D. There were a few parts where the script could have used some work considering they had 12 years to write better lines you'd think that wouldn't happen but it didn't ruin the movie or anything.

It felt like FernGully meets The Matrix.

lol wtf? fps like first person shooter? haha man im sure there are a lot of ppl who don't play video games (including myself.)

I thought the movie was alright. Like mentioned a million times the visuals were good.

spoiler:











The part I didn't like was that they weren't unique with the native type ppl's (i forget what they are called). But they all resembled african traits which I thought was gay. ie face paint, the shit they wore for jewellry etc.
