The IMAX one still shows up on the 28th at Riverport on the Silvercity website so I would assume there's at least next week

Negative...

Avatar will keep on playing in the Imax until another film distributes another imax movie to replace it. Considering we haven't heard anything advertised in imax in the near future, it can be assumed that Avatar will be playing in Imax for another month.

The moment you hear about an upcoming film in imax, that will be the film to replace avatar.

Avatar didn't have any of that. The 3D wasn't put in there TO BE the star of the show. Nowhere (that I can recall anyway) did it feel like Cameron was just going, "Ooo, look what I can do in 3D!"
the scene where giovanni ribisi putts the golf ball into the coffee mug comes to mind...ooo look at the ball coming at me!

i thought the 3D technology only worked on pandora (and there, it did look really good and worked very well). the scenes at the base looked pretty bad to me though. real life is not THAT 3D. you walk into a room, people don't pop out at you. there's a harmony to the way things appear to your eyes but in the base scenes, things popped out at you too evenly throughout the screen. in real life, some things pop out at you, others fade to the back, certain things look flat, and colours vary in vibrancy. i think they went overboard with the 3D.

this is just a superficial criticism though. all new technologies need time to be perfected. but we will look at this movie five years from now and think, wow that looks so dated.

I'm sitting in the Imax theatre right now waiting for the movie to start. Hopefully the Imax is promising.

^ nope, not dying down yet. Most shows are still sold out and with long line ups. You gotta buy the tickets in advance.

Wait, so now you're saying Star Trek made Pocahontas into sci-fi FIRST?!?!?! Mind. Blasted.

I watched it last month and it was one of the best movies I've seen. Not to mention I had a GREAT time in the theater. I was never bored and I felt great in general.
I watched Invictus prior to seeing Avatar and I almost fell asleep so it was a big difference.

overall 9.5/10
