Avatar


One of our Christmas traditions is going to a movie on Christmas. So, today we went to see Avatar, which is about 3 hours long but I barely noticed because the movie was so engrossing. This is a James Cameron movie and a Fern Gully grown up feature film. It mixes drama, graphics, suspense and thriller all in one. I would definitely recommend it on many levels.

And, if you haven't seen Fern Gully - go rent it this weekend. That is a definite must-see for any family with kids.

I want to see both movies.

Three hours? I guess you get your money's worth!

This is the second recommendation I've seen for this movie--both from writers, which is interesting because the reviews I've seen have said the plot is weak. Hmmm. Guess I'll have to take a friend's word over that of some bah-humbug professional critic. :)

My girls want to see this movie. They loved Fern Gully when they were little.

How funny...I'd thought of Fern Gully when I saw the first previews for this movie!

Saw Avatar on Xmas Eve. Visually stunning. I'm going to see it again next week--the 3-D version this time.

We saw it in 3-D, I was worried that it might make me motion sick but nope - it was wonderful. It was Fern Gully meets Transformers and Predator without all the horrible gore.

Plus it had a meaningful message.

Everyone should see it, if only for the art and visuals but there is so much more to the movie.

I wondered if it was good! Thanks for the review.

That's so funny that you related it to "Fern Gully," because that's exactly what I thought coming out of the theater. My niece loves that movie.
