Do yourself a gigantic favor and go see Avatar in 3D!
I was going to do a full review, but I get so tired of my own writing, and I don’t think people really care to read an entire review of the movie.
So instead I will post 10 thoughts about Avatar in 3D.
Let me first begin with the fact that though this movie looked ‘kind of neat,’ I really had no desire to actually go to the theatres and see it. I had no idea what it was about, and even all the hype behind it, I still didn’t think it was something I would want to see. The word ‘avatar’ alone reminded me of the weird middle-aged men that sit at home and play XBOX all day and beat their wives. Obviously, not something that would perk my interests. However, my friends Johnny and Neall went to see it and told me that it was truly incredible. So I went and saw it.
10 thoughts about Avatar 3D:
- Easily the most beautiful movie I have ever seen in my life. By beautiful, I mean visually stunning and remarkable. 3D or not, I am sure this movie will be something you have never seen before in you life, which is hard to do in the movie industry, I think.
- The story was interesting, but also kind of predictable.
- There was no chemistry whatsoever between the lead characters. Given they were CGI or whatever, but this film was 10 years in the making, so they had plenty of time to figure that chemistry out.
- The weird cult-like dancing at the Tree of Souls, though appropriate, garnered a very laughable reaction from me as well as the audience in the theatre.
- The animals were one of the best part. Creating a whole new world on Pandora, and creating animals that no one has ever seen before was so fascinating and amazing.
- Sigourney Weaver seemed like a good fit, but I expected a tiny bit more from her character. Note that I don’t mean her acting. She did great.
- The whole brother story at the beginning was unnecessary and probably made many people confused. They could have eliminated the entire brother backstory and still got on with the movie, which leads me to No.8.
- The movie is entirely too long. I understand the idea of making this movie an epic, but cutting out the brother backstory and some of the beginning would have helped this film wrap up a little faster.
- CGI effects were amazing. They developed some new technology for this film, which made the effects look almost entirely real.
- Though the 3D was amazing and visually stunning, I sometimes got sidetracked by the visuals and ignored the otherwise predictable and as much as I hate to say it, mundane story.
BONUS THOUGHT: I think this movie could have really been carried on another level with very memorable or unique music, and I remember specifically thinking how boring the music was.
In the end, the movie is absolutely awesome and well wroth the $8-$15 price range for the 3D elements!
