I finally saw the movie over the weekend.

When I heard that it surpassed The Lord of the Rings (!!!) at the box office I knew I HAD TO see it!

Cinematically it was spectacular. I wanted to live on Pandora, be blue, have a tail and a magical braid that plugged into creatures.
The special effects were out of this world (no pun intended). The gorgeous colors and the floating mountains. WOW!
But the story-line was less spectacular and a little predictable. And it ran looong (2 hours and 40 minutes)! Even still I rooted for the good guys and the Navi people. And of course, for the love story!

The boyfriend and I remain the two people who did not enjoy this film. I did enjoy the lit-up plants, though. Very pretty. Haha

was it so wrong to think that in the 2 hour 40 min time span I really wanted to see a hardcore love scene between those two haha

I hear all wonderful things about the look of this movie - more than the story - but I just not sure it's for me. Maybe it's because I'm not sure I could sit still and not have to go to the bathroom five times in nearly three hours!

This definitely sounds like a movie that needs to be seen in a theater! Hope to see you tomorrow night!

Hi Sitsa! I agree the story-line was a bit tired... which was so disappointing considering all the effort put into the dynamic aspects of the Navi civilization! Worth it though, in my opinion!
