A friend took me to see "Avatar" yesterday afternoon. I had not been to a movie in I don't know how long ... adult admission was $9.50, it was $9.50!
The movie was kind of a mix of "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and all the stories that are based on Tolkien.
Even now, I'm not sure what I think about it. The visual effects were certainly very pleasing, except that the 3-D made me feel dizzy for about half the movie (as it did my friend). I wasn't very thrilled that the adults sitting behind us brought 3 little kids with them - it's a long movie - but I forgave the little girl when towards the end, she sighed and said, "I love Jake (the hero guy)." It was just too cute.
