Went to see James Camerons Avatar this morning in stunning 3d and i have to admit i really loved it, It blew my mind, for once the hype for the movie was justified, I had my doubts before i went in but i left without any.
The movie plot was a little bit predictable in places but as sci-fi goes it was nice to see something a little bit fresh.

i wont go into any plot or detail, i just want you to take a little time and go see it,its one of only two films this year i would consider going to see at the movie theater twice.

HUGE BITZ RESTOCK NOW ON

Huh. I never expected a movie of Smurfs beating up humans would be such a good turnout. But sounds like it's worth watching, so I guess I'll give it a shot.

looks interesting, but paying £8 for an uncomfortable basic seat to watch a movie in a room filled with rustling packets, coughing dead people and chavs talking doesn't sound like a worthwhile venture.

I paid 5 for adult ticket, and the seats were really comfy... No one made a fuss either, which was good considering it's norwich

Really good movie, 5 stars, you NEED to see this!

Avatar's the best movie I've seen since....since ever. It's one of the only films where I have rooted for the non human side.

The film was better than I'd expected. The main character kind of made sense, though the baddies were a bit boring. Mostly, it's worth going to see in 3d for the graphics, which really are special... if occasionally a bit too much like wow.

So you get stunning 3d effects, representing fairly 2-dimensional characters and plot. I think I heard James Cameron saying that what he wanted from his films was a ride, so it succeeds in its own terms.


You can have your own opinion but you can't have your own facts.
